I'm renting the game at the moment. It's pretty rubbish and this is a LOT of money for a mediocre port of a 5-year-old game. Avoid unless you've got money to burn!

So if someone investigates very thoroughly and identifies how poor this port is and with well researched and proven proof reveals their findings advising not to invest in this, as it lowers the bar for other game publishers to release without any true effort, they are haters?

Where the hell do you rent games from these days?

Yeah looks like a lazy port, and a big question mark over how long they'll support it. Bit insulting for the price. With so many games hitting the switch every week it's surely only a matter of time before Devs learn they can't get away with sub standard versions at higher prices.
total garbage unfortunately
In a perfect world, people could just buy a game without having someone else's opinion rammed down their throats.

Great price, paid £39.99 yesterday. I'm not crying because it's a couple of versions behind the PC one.
All the stores round by me all say collect from 1st of march ? Did they not bother delivering round here ?

Boomerang rentals is still going and their switch titles are under their wiiu section

Should be £19.99 at the very most. Nintendo tax is real

How much is that monthly? I'd be tempted.

@op, heard this game is poorly optimised for the switch. Really low quality graphics, bad performance and just a shell of what was a crap game in the first place.

Meh, I got this when they have it away for free. They gave away five million copies last year on PC.
"Switch tax" is a phrase that winds me up, companies don't click their fingers and a game is magically ported over. The studio have taken time to add HD Rumble support and get the game at an acceptable level in handheld. They're then charging RRP of £35? Yes it's more expensive than PS4 and Xbone but at one point PS4 and Xbone were the same price. Hate on the developers for lack of support on other consoles etc. But charging £35 for a new full retail release is very acceptable. Heat

Developers have complained about the price Nintendo are charging for memory cartridges and are thus restricting the size/content of the game to fit on the cartridges thus the unofficial phrase "Nintendo Tax" is 100% genuine.

Nintendo choosing to use cartridges rather than discs in 2017/18 is just silly and the main reason we see "Switch tax"
As already mentioned, this is a port of a dated version.
So be warned, they likely plan to charge for future additions to bring it up to current version, probably with a few "free" additions to appear generous.

They may be forced to bring it upto date as free updates after the backlash
Got this on the XB1X last month when it was £8 with a mate. We were so looking forward to this. It's pants. I said if I had paid £40 for this on day of release I felt I would have had my pants pulled down.

Not a bad thing if the other person pulling your pants down is fit (and of course you're up for it!).

In this case clearly the other person is a moose (the developers!)

Rammed down their throats? No-one's forcing you to check HUKD or read people's comments. Those people are also trying to help others by warning that this is a crappy port. Maybe you're satisfied with substandard ports, others are not.

Dunno what your talking about, we have a solid community here at hukd and we kinda get each other I feel... we have plenty gamers also and giving advise or opinion only helps but at the end of the day it's only a bargain in the eyes of certain people which is obviously fine!
Voted hot on price, won’t be getting myself not hearing great things for this!

The developers actually replies to this and have since deleted their own post, make of that what you will.

The game is average, always has been, but without voice chat many think it's also pointless.

Had a feeling it would get a little heated in terms of the quality of the game. Maybe this game is aimed for the casual in some sense as it hits the co-op urge simple as

Don't want to go ON Nintendo's banned list most likely?

Was really looking forward to this - serious let down - just doesn't make sense to spend £30+ on a game out of date and missing features from a developer with a bad reputation for updates etc when you can buy a more updated game with more features for £10+ on other more powerful platforms.

You have to have a real lack of respect for money when you throw it away like that knowing all that now. And when people don't care about what they are paying for more of the same will continue by others - what's the incentive to improve if you know you're going to get paid with half baked attempt?

Ok, let’s consider the recent Shadow of Collosus remake on PS4. It’s not just a PS2 emulation, this has been built from the ground up with 4K resolution. So have they charged £35 because they took a bit of time to add the higher resolution etc? No. They came in at a price that was not insulting, despite the work that may have gone in to it. £22.99 is the price point for the SoC remake and that is the benchmark we should be seeing for all ports.

Sure, discs are cheaper to produce than Nintendo’s rediculously expensive cartridges. But developers should just go digital if it’s going to add £10/£15 to the cost.

Games played from the memory disk were superior than the disc versions tho. Load times were horrendous. Thankfully monster hunter allowed preloading data onto memory stick to make it less horrendous. This current gen consoles where you have to install the games before playing them don't make them feel like consoles at all.

I'm sure if we asked the consumers what they wanted out of a new nintendo console before the switch was a thing, people would want a console that could bring back the n64/snes days, no silly gimmick making it a risk for 3rd party devs.

Wii did great but as a gamer I just couldn't sit and enjoy myself playing it, wii u was great too but never fulfilled it's potential due to the 1st party games not coming out early enough.

I have the switch and do enjoy it but never used it out of the house and I doubt I'm the only one.

I just want a nintendo console that can do 1080p 30 or 60 not fussed, oh and uses discs and has decent hard drive space...

How successful do you think discs would be when using it in handheld mode? Cartridges (sd cards) were a nessasary. Not silly.
Also, there's the digital option with all games...where does the Nintendo tax come into play there?

Personally I think it's a little of both. Yes, SD cards means switch physical versions hold their value longer (it's not a rule that they come out more expensive over the initial releases of the other consoles rrps though). And Devs jumping on taking advantage that it's still a new system and gamers are more likely to pay out at this point when it comes to digital pricing. We saw oxenfree released at £15? A few weeks later on sale for £4...surely that example alone shows theres no outrages Nintendo tax with digital, yet still we see higher prices...

The silly gimmick is the switches biggest attraction. I don't know anybody that hasn't used their switch in handheld mode...I've taken it to my girlfriends a couple of times but mostly I use it around the house, in bed. It's why indie games are such a perfect fit for it. And a reason why the majority of 3rd party releases are selling better on it.
Nintendo have had the most powerful traditional console before, again coming late to the generation, with the GameCube. It didn't work out all that well for them. Neither did the more powerful N64. So they've tried their hand at the power game. They're competition when they offer something unique.

Unique is just another word for expensive, just had a game on splatoon 2 for the first time in handheld mode too and yeah it was great fun. I cant see myself or my kids taking it out doors though but maybe when we goto Skegness or Devon it could happen...

Payday 2 on the store is £45 and what memory (onboard) is available on the switch before you need to buy memory? Nintendo decided to go for cards over discs,fair enough but don't make us pay for that... la noire for instance should be on a bigger card so it doesn't require 14gb of space, carts should be able to hold all data and saves.

Unique is actually another word for different.
Yes, it would be nice if there were no compromises in terms of visuals and performance with AAA multiplatform games. But odds are those gamers that would prefer power over what Nintendo are offering will likely have the switch as their secondary console anyway. Nintendo's art direction on their own games would offer little more if they were on a Nintendo console as powerful as the ps4 in reality...hard to imagine Mario/Mario kart/Zelda/arms looking much better on other consoles. So what really would Nintendo gain releasing something of equal or slightly higher power so late in the generation? The fact that the switch has easily outsold the ps4 pro and xboxone X should tell you that most aren't buying into Nintendo for power these days.

Try continuing a game in bed...changes everything.
