Nintendo Switch review: Revolutionary, but it still needs work

The Switch fixes all of the mistakes of the Wii U and doubles-down on that system's best feature. But there are still plenty of issues and unanswered questions that leave us worried.

Pros
  • Innovative hardware
  • Being able to play your games anywhere is unique
  • A huge step up from the Wii U
Cons
  • So-so battery life
  • Screen doesn't work well outside
  • Still waiting on more features
  • Expensive accessories
