In retrospect, I should have known that I wasn’t in for a good time with Ghostrunner on the Switch when the game struggled to get through its opening credits sequence without stuttering. I’m not usually one to care about frame rates and whatnot, but when action that’s supposed to be smooth and high-speed is moving at a crawl across the screen, that’s never a good omen.
Needless to say, those technical issues are a constant through the game. No matter what you’re doing, Ghostrunner seldom feels like it’s working quite the way it should. The graphics can rarely keep up with the action, and it was pretty common for in-game action to slow to the same kind of crawl I experienced during that…
