We really enjoy it. My youngest has been playing it quite a bit the last month or two. Not sure if you played the WiiU version but Switch does have faster load times. You'd think this would be obvious but it's not a night and day difference either. The load times are much faster but still take a bit for cut scenes and moving in or out of a building/area. Personally I don't notice the frame rate a whole lot but it is there. We mainly play in docked mode in front of the TV as he's too young to be wandering around with it in handheld mode.
Best thing about this version is 2 player co-op. I wrote some of this the other day in another thread but I can't remember which one now. The graphics are improved and images are clearer on the Switch. Most of the controls are the same as well. We're about half way through it or so I'd guess at this point. I'm enjoying it quite a bit myself and would certainly recommend it especially if you've not played it before on another system. We've never had it lock up on us.
