The Nintendo Switch has quickly built up a very rich catalog of good games. Whether you’re a new Switch owner or a long-time Switch buyer, check out the three best games on the Switch today: Zelda Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
1. Zelda Breath of The Wild
Freedom. That’s the word that best describes this Zelda Breath of the Wild. Nintendo has struck a very, very big blow by offering its young Switch a game of extraordinary quality, already claiming the status of the best opus in the series. The title reinvents the notion of open world, offering total freedom to the player, from the very first seconds of the game. Heading south? Why not. And go towards that mountain in the distance and that intriguing light tower? Or rush headfirst and without equipment directly to the final boss? That’s possible too. Of course, choosing the last option would mean missing out on an incredible adventure, rich in encounters, deadly dungeons, intelligent and ingenious puzzles, intense and technical battles, and moments of contemplation between sumptuous panoramas and spellbinding music. Never before has a game offered such freedom to a player.
- A feeling of freedom never seen before.
- Well thought out puzzles.
- A good rise to power of the character.
- A colossal lifespan (200 hours of play to see everything).
- Fun powers that are well integrated into the gameplay.
- A sublime soundtrack (to listen to with headphones!).
- Some framerate drops in dense areas like forest.
- A game that can confuse some players by its absolute freedom (feeling of not knowing what to do).
- Is sometimes very difficult.

2. Super Mario Odyssey
As if it wasn’t enough to give the Switch an undisputed masterpiece with Zelda Breath of The Wild, Nintendo is back with Super Mario Odyssey! The new adventures of the most famous plumber are little jewels of fun, ingenuity, gameplay diversity and environments. For this opus, Mario is not alone and collaborates with a magic hat named Cappy. This character brings to our favorite Italian the best invention of the game: the transformations. You just have to throw Cappy on an object or on an enemy, to immediately take its appearance. The possibilities are very, very numerous, and constantly offer new gameplay ideas. The latter is rich and supported by a genius level design. The worlds all have their own identity and are full of side zones, where you can get precious moons, essential to progress in the game. It’s an ode to exploration, quite similar to what a certain Zelda offers. Another master stroke made in Nintendo!
- Transformations, always funny and useful.
- A bewildering diversity of gameplay.
- A more than generous life span (more than 30 hours).
- An exploration aspect pushed and rewarded.
- A goldsmith level design.
- Some minor camera angle issues.
- Some framerate drops at times.
3. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
After an episode appreciated by the critics on Wii U, but sulked by a certain part of the community, Nintendo had to go back to basics. With this Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Japanese editor and manufacturer offers an incredibly generous fighting game, with a gameplay very close to the reference title, namely: Super Smash Bros. Melee (Gamecube). The roster leaves you breathless in front of the incredible number of characters: 74! This large panel gives each player the possibility to choose his favorite fighter(s). As far as gameplay is concerned, the developers have found the right balance between speed and heaviness of movement (we talk about floating in the Smash universe) for an excellent result, where we feel the power of each move! In a few words, this Smash Bros. Ultimate is the best episode of the saga: more complete in its roster, in its game settings, in its items and summons. It is also more intelligent and varied in its stages, totally crazy with its 28 hours of OST… Another must-have game of the Nintendo Switch.
- A huge roster, but well thought out.
- An ultra complete adventure mode.
- A soundtrack of more than 28 hours.
- For beginners as well as pros.
- Lag and freezes in multiplayer.
- Better to play with a Pro or Gamecube controller.
With these three major titles, you are guaranteed many hours of play, alone and with others. Each one offers a unique experience: two outstanding solo adventures, and crazy combat against the AI or with friends.
