In Overwatch, you control one of several heroes in competitive 6-person team shooting matches. Battle over objectives, take down the other team, and achieve victory.
About this game
- It’s extremely fun.
- Super easy to earn.
- Micro transactions.
- The game is very fast paced.
- The balance of bad characters.
- This game is damn near perfect.
- There is zero character backstory.
- Every loot box contains four items.
- There is zero character progression.
- It’s like Payload and Capture point.
- It’s easily my favorite team shooter.
- I have a lot of fun playing this game.
- This is worth checking out for anyone.
- The performance is rock solid as well.
- Solid updated version of Team Fortress.
- Easily the best FPS in the past decade.
- Nothing like the usual online shooters.
- Its a game with a very low skill cap IMO.
- A must buy for any fan of fps multiplayer.
- They really need to enable mod support too.
- A game that truly deserves a perfect score.
- Runs perfectly with my mid range PC on high.
- In all seriousness though, it’s really good.
- The game works like a finely tuned clockwork.
- Other than that everything appears rock solid.
- Fun characters and of course a Blizzard title.
- Overall the game is well made and a lot of fun.
- The character designs are appealing to the eye.
- When you log onto the server, people say hello.
- I would like to see more modes added over time.
- If you want to enjoy playing a game, pick it up.
- If only there were more team based fps shooters.
- Its a first person MOBA like Heroes of the Storm.
- The art is polished to Blizzards’ high standards.
- But not every game needs a single player campaign.
- It’s the first FPS i bought and play since Doom 1.
- Picked it up on a whim in my lunch break yesterday.
- You also can adjust key-bindings at the hero level.
- This game IS like Team Fortress 2, but new and fresh.
- I don’t think Team Death-match would fit well either.
- I recommend picking it up for PC instead of consoles.
- My group has a guy who can’t play shooters for toffee.
- Overwatch is a brilliant game and it’s extremely fun.
- You have Junkrat who is like Team Fortress 2’s Demoman.
- Biggest contender on the most overrated game this year.
- Simply one of the most polished online shooters around.
- Cons- Well the game is generally completely unbalanced.
- What this game doesn’t have is a single player campaign.
- The map count is super low, the selection of heroes big.
- It’s pretty clear that a lot of work went into this game.
- That’s it? That will get boring and repetitive real fast.
- Other modes are just capture points and just escort train.
- Characters without self-healing fall behind those that do.
- It’s a well made barebones F2P game for the IOS generation,
- That’s not to say the game is perfectly balanced obviously.
- The other part I am REALLY happy about is the “”pay wall””.
- The replay value is insanely high.
- Only downside (so I would quote 9) are the character models.
- An amazing shooter like no other with Blizzard level polish.
- It would take years to get all the characters on a F2P model.
- Game its a simple multiplayer shooter with 1 mode and 8 maps.
- Why should this game be free to play? Its EXTREMELY polished.
- This game has everything to be the new titan in the FPS genre.
- I hate match making systems like this, COD & Battlefield like.
- Meaning that the one shot kills and devastating alts are real.
- Overwatch is Blizzard’s take on the FPS (First Person Shooter).
- The characters are appealing and the environments well planned.
- Positives:A fantastic example of how a team fps should be done.
- It is competitive and the different characters are well thought.
- People also complain that this game has no single player element.
- This game is action packed from the very first moment you log in.
- First off, this game has a lot of depth and a high skill ceiling.
- Geforce experience will optimise the game for better frame rates.
- The game has no progression and requires little skill or tactics.
- Many people have put in more – because they’ve had fun playing it.
- Is it fun? Yes, when your team is playing with the correct heroes.
- What stops me from giving it a perfect score are two main problems.
- It feels like a mod for Quake 3 (Graphics, gameplay, feel, sounds).
- Moreover any single player will not be able to carry the whole team.
- The characters are diverse and the maps are generally well designed.
- The 21 characters are very well balanced and every match feels epic.
- The character design is Pixar quality and dripping with personality.
- If you’re a Team Fortress veteran–you will feel right at home here.
- Blizzard has put their own spin on it to make it a fresh experience.
- I’m playing this since the closed beta and I’m in LOVE with the game.
- There’s only a handful of modes and maps, and flat-out no deathmatch.
- With the standard edition only being $40, the pricing isn’t that bad.
- Love the game or not, it’s one of the most well made games in history.
- Wow another dead island situation. pros – very pretty and sounds nice.
- I’ve been playing since closed beta and have hundreds of hours logged.
- The voice chat banter can be fun and entertaining, depending who’s on.
- Also behind this paywall are downloadable content and everything else.
- The gameplay is fun, fast and frantic and there’s never a dull moment.
- The beta and the last days were really fun and the game feelt original.
- They are not small maps, is a TF2 payload map small? I don’t think so.
- But if that is all that drives you play Call of Duty, play Battlefield.
- Play it at a friends house first and if you don’t like it, don’t get it.
- I also have good latency so I won the click first battle more the times.
- Playing online is a blast and trying out different characters can be fun.
- When joining a quickplay match, you have no choice over game type or map.
- I expect my new and expensive games to be more fun than my old free ones.
- A solo campaign doesn’t make any sense in this type of game and gameplay.
- The game modes and maps are very intuitive(huge +) but have less variety.
- But after playing open beta – I couldn’t wait for the game to be released.
- Although this multiplayergame is near perfect I give a 9/10 for this game.
- Bloodborne was great, Dark souls 3 even better… -OVERWATCH IS FANTASTIC-“
- Joining lobbies, games, navigating the menu system, is all fluent and quick.
- Anything that can be bought over micro transactions can be obtained in game.
- However to simply call the game a first person shooter would be a disservice.
- You destroy enemies extremely quickly and the hit boxes are ridiculously big.
- As far as reasonable expectations go, Overwatch is a damn fine steak, though.
- Team Fortress 2 also had just as many single player options as Overwatch does.
- If you enjoy being cannon fodder, by all means, waste $40 to be cannon fodder.
- You’d be hard pressed to get little more than a boring spray most of the time.
- I’ve taken out an entire team multiple times before with that explosive wheel.
- No one EVER said that this game was going to have a single player campaign. 2.
- Nothing about this game is lacking, there’s even voice chat unlike most moba’s.
- I enjoy the learning curve and most if not all of the maps currently available.
- What I will also say is that what happened at Blizzards round table is obvious.
- Don’t believe me in spawn shoot a canister and watch those great smoke effects.
- No singleplayer, no in-game story, online only….yeah, it’s an online shooter.
