Switch had several impressive ports, and I've played a few of them. They all are pretty good, but sometimes require custom patches to look better, or/and some overclock to play smoother.

Basically, switch ports of PS4/XO games always looked like PC version on minimal settings, which is alright for a small screen, but SE4 shocked pretty instantly. I've even double-checked if it was PS3 game also, but no, solid 8th gen product. It looks like it runs on medium or maybe even mid-high compared to PC standards. And it's not some hallway-esque shooter, but a huge open mapped one with very impressive Italy vistas. That's not all, but the game is really smooth and sharp, holding 720p undocked and 30 fps pretty much always. I felt no need to OC or switch to pseudo-dock mode to make the game feel better.

So out of all the impressive ports, this one I consider to be the most impressive yet. Makes you wonder why more games don't have a portable version? Like Tales of Arise or Crimson Nexus could somewhat easily fit on switch. Bamco as a Japanese publisher should care more for such a market.

Do you have your favorite 'impossible ports' or the ones that people don't talk about enough?

PS Oh yeah, the game itself is real fun. If you like to wield a sniper rifle in any shooter, this game is for you. Just don't expect any real plot, cause there is none.

I thought crysis 3 looked really good, haven't played it too much but it felt like a solid port and runs smooth. Dont feel that it needs overclocking/custom patches. Would be amazing to have Deus ex mankind divided on the switch

Ori and the Blind Forest. Runs at 1080p 60fps. If I remember correctly the Switch port got a lot of performance optimizations that were not in the original XBOX versions but made when making Ori and the Will of Wisps.
