Ark: Survival Evolved on Switch is the worst looking game on current gen consoles

Porting Ark: Survival Evolved to Nintendo Switch turned out quite bad. Don’t buy it no matter what. I did, I regret it. Fifty bucks down the drain. I almost got rid of Switch altogether after booting the game up for the first time. I recently got it, I got some nice games on there which I liked, but as a fresh owner of the console, I was shocked when I saw how Ark looks on it.

You see, I did not see any reviews of the Switch version of the game. I didn’t see any reviews of the game, for that matter. I just went in head first as it’s quite hard finding good games on Switch coming from PC and PS4, and Xbox One where I play games like Doom and other action intensive games. On switch its all about Mario games and some smaller indie games. Well, yes I played many of them and they are really awesome. Plus, all major free to play titles are on there, such are Fortnite and Warframe. I also discovered great games such is Smite which looks amazing on there and plays smooth.

Frames deep to single digits

Ark: Survival Evolved is not looking great, all that stutter. Framerate goes down to single digits. Just forget it. Looks like there is no fix coming any time soon, or anytime for that matter. I just can‘t find a single piece of info that anything will ever change for this game on the Switch version. So, save yourself fifty bucks and go get something else to play.

I just don‘t know how to get rid of this game now. What if nobody buys it from me (physical copy, of coruse). What if ebay already banned it from being sold on there because of how horriable it looks taht it scares ebay shoppers. Forget it.

Thanks for reading, dudes.

I've been in the gaming industry for more than ten years. Mostly I was on the developer side - as a game designer. But I also worked with many other aspects of game development. I worked with producers, concept artists, 3D artists, animators and programmers.
