Blizzard’s Overwatch has been universally acclaimed owing to the game play that the first person shooting game has. The characters are strong which in turn aid to plot development in the game. People have been coming up their reviews since last Tuesday and they have been overwhelmingly pleased with Overwatch. As it happens, Overwatch has turned out to be one of the highest rated first person shooter games of this generation. There is no doubt about the fact that the wait for Blizzard’s Overwatch has been completely worth it for the fans.
According to Chris Carter of Destructoid, “Truly, I believe that we’ll be seeing a lot more of Overwatch in the years to come. Blizzard has a great track record when it comes to long-term support, and given how good it is out of the gate, it can only get better from here. Blizzard has truly snatched victory from the draws of defeat.” Overwatch scored a full 10 from Chris Carter.
On the other hand, Mike Hardy of Gamespot came up with a 9 point score for the first person shooting game. Mike said, “It’s that intoxicating path of discovery that makes Overwatch so varied, so rewarding, and ultimately another seminal release from developer Blizzard. Overwatch is an intelligent cascade of disparate ideas, supporting one another, pouring into one another, and coiling around themselves as they flow into the brilliant shooter underneath.”
Russ Frushtick from Polygon said, “There’s no question that Overwatch is a masterfully designed game. The wide array of amazing, unique characters, and the original ways they interact with one another, make for a peerless team play experience in the shooter space. Some issues, like a dissatisfying progression system and a hostility to solo players, hinder the overall experience, but the core of Overwatch remains strong throughout. It’s an easy recommendation to make, so long as you’ve got some friends to back you up.” Ross gave Overwatch another healthy score of 8 out of 10.
While many critics have come up with great ratings for the game, Overwatch has been slammed by a few owing to the lack of game modes. This is something that the game does not have compared to the other first person shooter games in the market. The fans probably had no doubt that Overwatch will be a success after the highly praised beta version of the same. One should not be surprised if Overwatch turns out to be the chart leader for some time now. Overwatch is available for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.[Via]
