See How ‘DOOM’ on the Switch Stacks Up to other Versions

With DOOM landing on the Nintendo Switch in just two days (November 10th), it’s been bugging me as to just what the game will look like on the Switch. Furthermore, just what did Bethesda do in order for the game to run on the console. I’m not the only one with that question. Fret not, as a new comparison video has appeared, showing DOOM in action on the PS4, XBox One, PC, and the Switch.

From the looks of things, the Switch looks to be holding up amazingly well and looks great, given the console’s hardware limitations. That said, the shots in the video area pretty light on the action. That of course leads to the question of just how the game will run during the more hectic moments of gameplay. This is obviously more pertinent for those who are looking to get into the multiplayer. I guess we’ll find out this week.

    Nothing can hold Brutal Doom.

      the originals are way better, BD is like someone played them, did not understood them, and then make a over the top thing that is just fun for a very little while, with Doom 2016 they actually put stuff from BD in it but they did it right

      Can’t wait for Brutal Doom V21 that’s coming out soon. The beta of that is available now.

    The PC still owns gaming. Then, it’s pretty much neck & neck between the Xbox and Playstation. There was quite a noticeable difference with the Nintendo, so it’s still lacking a bit.

      the thing about consoles is that the companies make some exclusive games for them, which is a shame because graphically they dont come even close to a good PC

    • It “owns” gaming in regards to graphical capabilities. The majority of the best games of the past 5 years have been console releases. And although the Switch maybe be lacking a bit in the visuals department, the two best reviewed games of this year have been Nintendo releases.

    Seems like it’s PC, then, PS4, then (only by a narrow margin) XBox One, with Switch being at the bottom.

    It’s good Nintendo players get to experience DOOM, even if the graphics are watered down. What will make or break DOOM on the Switch will be the frame rate. If it slightly lags or slows down the DOOM experience will be ruined. Speed is what makes DOOM great.

    DOOM on PS4 is my favorite game next to Bloodborne, Nioh and Dark Souls 2 and 3.

    People fail to understand when dealing with the Nintendo Switch that if you have to put out a video to compare the graphics and frame rate with other consoles you would also have to include both the Nintendo Switch console TV mode and when it’s in portable handheld mode. They both compare very different graphics wise with most games. In most cases the console TV mode has better graphics than in portable handheld mode. In my opinion I don’t really care about graphics just as long they don’t run horribly like the game Don’t Knock Twice on the Switch. Having these games run the way they do in portable mode is an achievement.

    Switch is exactly like the PC version. Out of focus and muted. I truly appreciate this article, it just saved me a bunch of money.

    Used to be a “casual” gamer back when the 360 first came out but I still buy games and consoles for my kids nowadays. I must say that I hated the Wii back when it first came out but since then Nintendo has hit it out of the park with the Wii U and now the Switch. As for the Doom graphics in that video I have to say the PS4 looks the best overall. I’ll still be buying this for the Switch tho.
