Overwatch Review Overwatch is the first new IP from developer Blizzard Entertainment and the very first time I could recall them ever releasing a console counterpart of a new game your day as PC. This game flew under my radar until I played its beta along with millions of other gamers. Actually playing Overwatch for the very first time it gets its hooks straight into you. No real matter what play style youve or what character you play as theres fun to be had. Ive only played a small number of hours of the final release nonetheless it hasnt disappointed in the slightest and I cant wait to see the way the prestigious Blizzard supports this title within the length of its initial release and the foreseeable future. Im not going to sugar coat anything here. Theres a tiny cutscene once you boot up the overall game that gives context to the characters you will play as during your time with Overwatch but I cant say I even spent time and energy to watch it. Im sure it is an interesting couple minutes but Im not investing my time and money into Overwatch for a story. Thankfully the game knows that and this is the last you receive from any type of story. What takes the spot of an account will be 21 very detailed and different heros. These heros would be the core of Overwatch Guide and theyre what make the game stand out from other first person multiplayer games. Each one bring specific abilities to a match and really can meld well with other characters during combat. But not one character feels vital for a group to succeed. I would say a complete team could play as the same character and still have a potential for winning a match albeit a tiny chance depending on what character. In the exact same vein though there isnt an identity that stands out as a necessity play every match type. Each character has their particular weakness and strengths its up to the player to use them for their fullest potential. Each of the 21 characters includes a few abilities up their sleeves that suit their play style and class type. Some characters admittedly feel a little bare in comparison to others but in the long run they all feel nice to play as. The maps in Overwatch are extremely fun to play on. They serve the characters more than anything and setup specific choke points that beg one to are a group to overcome. They look nice and stylized but moreover they dont remove from the characters inhabiting them. Game modes are very standard. Youve capture and defend type matches alongside escort missions. They are both thrown into exactly the same quick play option. You can even play against A.I. and create custom matches. There is also a leveling system in place. Its very standard and moves along at a brisk pace. It will soon be interesting to see if people stay around after the presumed level 50 cap. Im sure it is likely to be raised after a couple of months though. Customization comes in the shape of character skins emotes voices and sprays. Theyre fun to get but theyre certainly not the reason I is going to be hanging out to play the game. My only minor complaint will be that there isnt a bunch of content in the game. Sure youve a crap ton of characters to pick from and some decent apparel to gather but theres nothing to help

keep someone like me whos used to unlocking weapons and attachments in Battlefield to stick around hours on end. Though hoping set for a few hours per day has been extremely satisfying. A very important factor I could have liked to see is within a match your abilities may be upgraded to accomplish more damage or last a little longer maybe a shorter refresh rate. Something other than the bare bones weve now. Also Overwatch costs an affordable 40 on PC while console players will have to fork over some extra cash for the 60 version that is the same thing. If youre into first person shooters or character driven gameplay I could easily recommend Overwatch if you should be thinking about it. But I dont know if theres enough to satisfy most gamers for the price tag on the console that is. Luckily Im having a blast playing Overwatch and know my money has been well spent. Not only do I possess a solid game on release Blizzard will continue supporting the overall game until nobody is playing it anymore. That makes purchasing the game easier to do.
