Everspace boasts some truly impressive graphics on the Nintendo Switch. Both the details of the ship as well as the beauty in the vastness of space is rendered remarkably well. The ship designs are great and the combat graphics are amazing as well. There is a good amount of variation in the environmental designs so you never get the sense the you’re playing the same level as you progress from conflict to conflict.
The controls for maneuvering your ship and firing its weapons are simple, but effective. They work well for the Nintendo Switch controls both on the console and using the separate Power Grip controller. There is an impressive variation in the levels and battles. The experience changes and evolves based on how you play and what ship/weapons you choose to bring into battle. There are moments in a run where you will be jarred by an event happening in front of you and have to make a split-second decision under fire about how you’re going to proceed next.
Beautiful graphics, varied gameplay and ship customization means that there is a varied level of play that allows for multiple experiences as you progress throughout the missions. A fun ride that is compelling in both look and playability.
