A fun shooter
27 June 2017 | by thatonenerd-88686See all my reviews

Overwatch is a first person shooter with lots of praise, but not without it's problems. It had so much potential to be something much greater if there was just much more to offer.

Cons:Overwatch is a game that lacks a lot of content. It's only a online game that has a few multiplayer modes, including escort, assault, and control. The game also doesn't have a single player, which really disappointed me. The marketing promised so much that it would build a new lore with its characters and setting, but they didn't add it in the game. Instead, Overwatch is a only online multiplayer shooter with not much content. Even games like titanfall and star wars battlefront had more content than this at launch. This wouldn't be too bad if it didn't have a overpriced, price. Another problem is the microtranactions. While I'm glad it's not pay to win, it's still just another system that just gives you RANDOM gear.

Pros: The graphics of the this game are very good, with so much detail to the environment, maps, and especially the characters. Speaking of characters, not only are they good as characters, but for a game there is so much variety for them. There are a total of 20+ characters that are all different and unique from each other, with each character set with different play styles. The gameplay is one of the most entertaining I've ever played, making the game pretty addictive to play. Each character has their different special moves and abilities that can be useful for different strategy"s if your actually working with your team. The maps in this game are pretty good, and the game modes(while few), are still fun to play.

Overall, while disappointing in some aspects, the game is still a very fun first person shooter that is worth checking out.
