Overwatch is a fast, action-packed competitive, team-based game that has become one of the most popular of its genre. The game has a wide variety of different and unique feeling characters for players to play and experiment with, and with new heroes being released, the game has a lot of staying power within the community. Majority of the games rely on effective teamwork and cooperation from all the players. The aesthetic of the game, while not incredible by any means, is still very appealing to look at and admire. The game has a lot of lore and story behind it for the fans that are interested in the history of the series but is not mandatory for a player to know in order to play and enjoy the game. With almost any multiplayer game, there is lots of toxic activity in Overwatch, but if you're a fan of games that are fast, fun with tons of characters to try, Overwatch is a recommendation.

Overwatch is a multiplayer based online shooter that pits players against each other in teams, each with their own objectives, attack and defend. The game features unique heroes as playable characters, each with their own varying stats and abilities which determine what role they posses in the team. When a proper team is assembled players must communicate in order to work together to defeat their opponents. The gameplay is very team oriented, if there is a lack of cooperation in a team, you are bound to lose. This can ruin the game for some people. Playing individually can be a gamble since teamwork is not guaranteed when random players are matched together. However, when the game is played as a team, the experience is immeasurable and is fun win or lose. Overwatch offers a wide variety of game modes for its players and always adds free updates for its users, adding more and more unique content. The only big issues with Overwatch other than its matchmaking is the lack of progression in the game. Players are not incentivised to play the game other than to play it. Unlockables are lottery based cosmetic skins for characters and do not have a real impact on the player. Other than this Overwatch is a game that one can easily spend all day playing if they’re not careful.

Overwatch is a cooperative multiplayer video game that was released on May 24, 2016, by the gaming developer company, Blizzard. It is a game where two teams consisting of 6 players each are supposed to work together to either capture and defend various points on the map or move the "payload" to a designated stop before the limited time runs out. Each player has a choice of picking from one of the 31 playable heroes that each has unique skill sets from one another and characters are sectioned off in three types: Damage, Support or Tank heroes. There are loot boxes which are available through playing the game or in-game purchases. Loot boxes contain cosmetics for all heroes and are valued in rarities with the lowest being Common and highest Legendary. You can also buy cosmetics with Overwatch's credits that you can buy. Overall, Overwatch was a fun game for me to play but I've stopped playing it for a long time not because Overwatch is not a good game, it's just that I've gotten bored of the game. But besides me not playing to game anymore, when I used to play it, Overwatch was probably one of the best games to play, if not the best because of how fun and addictive it was to play it while being able to level up, unlock new cosmetics, play a variety of heroes, etc. 4.3 out of 5. @Self-Disciplined of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Beautiful game. Although PS+ is required (as it's an online game), it's very fun. A lot of characters and unlockables. The main con is that it's pretty unbalanced and there are too many OP heroes. And I also hate the penalty they give you when you leave the game early since the game thinks you're "rage quitting". Other than that, the maps are good, the game modes are unique and fun, and the graphics are amazing. 4 out of 5 for this one.

All of you guys willing to buy this game, be aware you need PS+ to actually physically play the game. Or in other words get the "FULL" experience. Honestly if your going to get this game think about the fact that once your PS+ exspyers you will be UNABLE to play the game unless you pay another subscription to PS+.

Sincerely, fellow Gamers

Brother Genji, these hips don't lie.

So, I didn't get to play this game because you HAVE to have PlayStation Plus which sucks.

What I have seen of this game, by stream of Jerma985 and Star_ ,(Please go watch them on Twich and on YouTube, they are awesome.) is pretty good but a friend of mine told me that this game is bad.

I would have liked to play this but I don't have a PS+ so, no go, but there is comics and shorts and they're pretty good. Someone on YouTube (I can't remember his name) does fandubs of the comics and those videos are really cool.

Another thing about this game, Matthew Mercer plays McCree.... yeah.... fangirling over here.

I can't score this but if you want, go play it on PS4, XBox1, or on Steam.

Blizzard's first new I.P. in 17 years and it's super fun.
It's a 6 v. 6 first person shooter that has 21 characters (at launch).
