I love Minecraft and I was excited to get it on my Switch so I could play on the go. However, it runs so slowly that it’s really frustrating to play and I don’t find myself reaching for it often - my 6 year old Macbook air runs Minecraft better than this. For reference, I have an OLED switch that’s about a year old and it has no issues running games like Skyrim. Great game, but don’t recommend buying it for switch unless you have no other system that can run it.

Beedub - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Here's my issue, minecraft is in my top 5 favorite games EVER. after buying it for every other console I moved onto the switch and wanted to play anywhere. My games loaded EXTREMELY slow, took forever to even be able to move across the map and have the ground load under me. Playing in creative mode was absolutely out of the question. I tried moving my games to an SD card and then just deleted all of my games. It still ran extremely slow. Am I the only one???

Kylie - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This is a great game for switch and works very well. My only complaint is that if you want to play online with friends (ex: make a world, play online game modes, etc.) you have to buy Nintendo Switch Online, which is about $4 a month. If you are getting this game to play with friends I suggest just getting pocket addition (Minecraft mobile) to save money in the long run.
