Decent price, about what I paid from Amazon on a preorder that I returned. Still if you don't have any other system to play it on the Switch version is meh at best. They should have included some performance options to lower texture, lighting or other qualities to get a better more stable framefrate.

OMG stay away from this game. I pre-ordered it from Amazon like in the beginning of this year. Arrived on time. I tested it... the worst compatibility and optimization I have ever seen. very very laggy

Are you complaining about this Switch version, or the Xbox One???

Plays perfectly on the PS4, a lot of sites have this in their top games of 2017.

the switch version. it is horrible.
lags, resolution is ridiculously low.
all those game critics from various magazines and youtube game reviewers said the truth - it is very much not optimized for Switch.

I returned mine even though I bought it for like 26 back in April. amazon allows you to return it in like 4 months, so I could have completed it and returned if I wanted to, but the pain from that lag and loading times was too annoying.

April was a long time ago, you don't think they've released patches to improve the game since?

Oh no no, I preordred it back then, shipped on Nov 18 to everyone and then I returned it on Dec 3 for a refund. Please stay away from it for Switch. Get a PC version.

I see, well hopefully they release a patch for their very highly rated game.
Doubt they'd want to ruin their reputation with the game.

I got it for Switch for Christmas yesterday and it actually runs really well. There are drops here and there, but not as bad as everyone has made it out to be. I love this game and the soundtrack, absolutely stunning. Also, Tequila Works, the developer, as addressing these performance issues in January, just FYI.
