Imperfect Switch to small screen
the freshness of Origins. The sequel, Legends, released in 2014, improved on the formula.
The release of Legends on Switch, three years after being released on almost every console imaginable, comes with little expectation. For the definitive version, Ubisoft has added basically zero content apart from now featuring every character on one console and new local tournament play for Kung Foot.
To therefore earn the “definitive” title, you would expect Legends on Switch to play better than any other previous version. Unfortunately, the opposite proves true. The Switch version miraculously plays worse, running less smooth, the loading times almost doubled. Due to this, Legends loses the speed that made the initial iterations so great, detracting somewhat from what should be an excellent experience.
Of course, that’s not necessarily a game breaker. The definitive edition has the same levels, all brilliantly designed with popping colours and fun enemies. For those looking to take the game portable, Legends works well on the Switch screen. Really, though, for those who have played Legends over and over again, collecting every Lum the first time around, there’s little reason to purchase the definitive edition. – The Independent
