Life is Strange: True Colors Switch vs. PS5 Comparison: Is The Downgrade Worth It?
Life is Strange: True Colors was finally released after a slight delay for the Nintendo Switch. Is the wait for a portable version worth it?
Life is Strange: True Colors is a good game that is also stunning in a visual sense. It doesn’t do anything cutting-edge but thanks to its art direction, it looks great especially on the current-generation consoles where it supports ray-tracing and 60 FPS.
What about the Nintendo Switch version then? Well, this version is pared back by a significant margin. The level-of-detail and visuals have taken a massive hit to get this game working on Nintendo’s hybrid console. It looks like the same game but in a side-by-side comparison, the flaws are pretty much evident.
Some of the major changes include the removal of the depth-of-field effect, lack of floral and fauna (now they look blocky polygons), reduced level-of-detail across close and far distances, and a reduced polygon count for almost every major character. The texture quality has also taken a hit but all of this was done to get the game running at 30 FPS.
There is not much to add here. The game does run at a solid 30 FPS on the Nintendo Switch although some occasional hitches and stutters can feel a little distracting overall. On the plus side, you have a portable version of the game and it doesn’t crash and burn as the recent GTA remasters.
