    One of the best multiplayer experiences on the Switch – if not the best! [Issue #35 – September/October 2018, p. 24]

    They said it wasn't possible on Switch, but now it's here, Nintendo fans won't be able to escape the phenomenon for any longer. It nails the get a little better each time feel, and that's what makes it so addictive. Add in the Save the World mode and it's an equal match for the other systems.

    Fortnite Battle Royale delivers a perfect balance in gunplay, progression and sandbox elements. No wonder it may be 2018's gaming phenomenon. We even like the way microtransactions allow players to enter new challenges and earn cosmetics for the game, but don´t alter the core mechanics.

    Fortnite for Nintendo Switch delivers the same fun, compelling battle royale experience already available on the other platforms.

    Fortnite on Nintendo Switch is a well done port despite its graphical downgrades. It contains the same great Battle Royale gameplay the title is known for, and it's just as addictive and exciting as ever. Collecting materials, swapping out guns, and building forts never gets old, even though you are going to be dying a lot. If you have never played the game before, then this is the perfect time to give it a shot, especially since it's free to play.

    Epic has delivered the full fat Fortnite: Battle Royale experience on the ‘homeheld’. The omission of Save the World is disappointing, and you’re sure to notice the framerate difference if you’re coming from other consoles, but performance-wise, it’s steady and perfectly playable. There’s room for improvement – motion-assisted aiming should be top of the patch list – but ultimately, that just-one-more feeling survives the transition intact. Before you know it, you’ll be eyeing the clock at 3:56 am thinking ‘hmm, that’s not a round number’. The heart-pounding suspense of making it to the final two may not be healthy, but it sure is addictive.

    Fortnite is not a masterpiece, yet it is one of the most important games in the current videogame panorama. If you are wondering why this happened, you just have to hold the joycons and spend a few minutes in the company of ninety-nine other players, whether you are at home or at lunch at work. Warning: it could be addictive.

Ive been wanting this port for ages and its finally here! A few things that need to be fixed, but i'm sure it will be fixed in updates in the future. Also if you are thinking of buying a Switch just for Fortnite, go ahead because its that good. Also it looks a lot better than Mobile and the controls are way better as well. Go download it now if you haven't already because it's a free game. 10/10 Great Port Expand

I love enabling hotspot on my iPhone and playing Fortnite wherever I go. I always make sure to bring my Pro Controller with me. The game is excellent. Not as graphically pleasing as other systems but I love that I can take Fortnite anywhere with me. I never got into it on the PS4 but the switch has made the game extremely accessible. I play it exclusively on my Switch and will begin playing on the PS4 when Sony decides to allow cross-play. This game blows the scale, the hype is real, the switch version is great. Expand

Then after, you'll probably become addict as you will find the fun on it, either playing solo or with your teams.

    The weekly changes make this even more valuable as you will get a little fresh air every then.

    And it is free! everyone rating this bad are fortnite zombies that wish the best graphics, best controls, portability. For all us other casual players, it is great.

    Fortnite est avant tout et exclusivement un battle royal, et le problème du battle royal c'est que c'est un peu la coquille vide ! Ne cherchezFortnite est avant tout et exclusivement un battle royal, et le problème du battle royal c'est que c'est un peu la coquille vide ! Ne cherchez pas d'histoire, il n'y en a pas. L'enrobage est beau, les graphismes de bonnes factures... Seul la dynamique du soft et la gratuité anime le tout. C'est LE jeu à la mode, qui possède une communauté démesurée. Epic Games le mettant à jour régulièrement...
    Bref, allons à l'essentiel.

    Ce que j'ai aimé :
    - La qualité du portage. Cette version Switch est somptueuse.
    - Le cross play
    - Une référence du genre
    - La difficulté accrue
    - Tous les joueurs partent sur le même pied d'égalité, les costumes ne sont que purs éléments cosmétique
    - La gratuité du soft
    - Les mises à jour régulières

    Ce que je n'ai pas aimé :
    - Absence d'un mode solo (mais c'est tout à fait subjectif)
    - La distance d'affichage de certains éléments du décor un peu courte (herbe entre autres)
    - Le système de construction
    - On se perd vite dans les comandes. Temps d'adaptation long
    - Personnalisation plutôt limité
    - Les véhicules ne sont que des éléments de décor
    - Décors peu variés

    Fortnite the game that everyone plays, I think that there can be some more improvements but so far so good.
    The new version of Fortnite is outstanding but the only problem is the smg’s {small machine guns} and the pump shotgun, I personally think Fortnite can improve on its game graphics and glitches, but I can’t complain about winning, this is one of the most addictive games I have ever played and I am warning you that once you start playing Fortnite you won’t turn back this game is child friendly
    I only think the in-game purchases are very expensive and that v-bucks {game money for purchases} should be more earnable in the gameplay and should not only be purchased with money but also it must be given to the player as a reward for downloading the game and receiving rewards for completing challenges
    And one last thing when players jump into a rift other player should be able to shoot them while skydiving and not be able to hit them only once they landed on the ground.
