Experiment in Overwatch

Overwatch

Before I wanted to do this review, I wanted to actually sit and play this game for awhile to get a real taste of the release, before patches are made. This is about a week late. We had a lot going on…My chinchilla got hurt and we had to take care of him for awhile but everything is better now! So, let’s get started!!!

 

Overwatch. A game that’s had a lot of Hype as well as a lot of controversy. ¬†For those who are unaware, Overwatch is a FPS release by Blizzard entertainment. You have 21 heroes you can pick from and 12 randomly picks maps with 4 different play styles, minus the practice ring. I will say, that I am not a big FPS fan, but I fell in love with this game. I like all the aspects so far, but I’m nervous about the patch notes. I’ve been a blizzard fan for awhile, but some of their patches…:/ But that’s for another time ūüôā Like Legion.

 

21 Hero Street

21 unique heroes, from numerous countries, ¬†that bring a unique feel to the game. You can’t go wrong with any of them, unless you choose Bastion (Or like 4 of them on one team…yeah screw you). There are several Heroes right now that are OP, but there are several that take some skill to play. Each character has an attack, and alt attack and finally an Ult attack. Unless you’re a healer then you have a Heal, ect ect ect….Mercy (Heroes should die when it’s the opposite team). You have about five different “kinds” of Heroes. Offense (high Damage), Tank, Defense(Low Damage), Support, Bastion. ¬†Lily, what do you have against Bastion? You’ve never played the game if you don’t know…

 

Any who, the different ranks, really make the game. The Offense and Defense pretty much self explain themselves. You have Heroes who just BLAST away their enemies, with out a Tracer…then you have the heroes that aren’t meant to do a lot of damage but can still hurt, the Dragon eats all enemies. Tanks are almost a must for certain types of games, and My go to right now, if Reinhardt. It’s almost hard to mess up Reinhardt…..yeah that’s probably a lie but eh….He wants to Arm Wrestle soon!

 

My oh My Maps!

 

There are 12 maps, three assigned to different types. Escort (ugh), Assault (Whoot!), Assault/Escort (F’n really?!), Control (AWE YEAH). You travel around the world for every map, where you’re then asked to summon your team and do whatever the objective is. Whether you escort a slow truck through Hollywood, or you defend a Meiji style castle from your foes, and bring honor back to your family. I’ve played every map so many times, I’m yearned for more. I can only set up turrets on this one ledge so many times before I just can’t take it anymore. Let’s go over the different map types super fast.

Assault: For those who don’t make a while Bastion Team, this is a map where you and your team either defend or attack certain points across the map. Who ever has the most points win the game.

Escort: Do I really need to go over this? You know, you follow this thing around and protect it.

Assault/escort: Literally combine the other two maps.  Defend a point, then escort something then DEFEAT!

Control: My favorite map type so far! You control points, contest them and VICTORY!

 

I hope they add more maps, and more game typed.

 

To game or not to game? That is the Bastion.

My beef with Bastion. I’m going to lay this out for you, but I wanted to talk about the game a little. Bastion is a very OP character, and it seems to be a “noob” character in my opinions. I say this because Bastion has three forms, I call them Mobile assault, Turret and Tank. Screw every single one of these. I only play him when we’re in dire need of a big push but I tend to stick to other characters.

 

My Overview

 

I love this game. I didn’t think I was going to, but it was an awesome surprise when I installed the game and loaded it. I may lose a lot, but that doesn’t turn me away at all. It just means I get to play again. This game has its ups and downs. ¬†Your team and Teamwork will literally make or break the game, or being cheap. ¬†Meh, Bastion.

 

I give this game a 8/10. Once the first patch comes out, I will edit this review and post another one. I’m interested to see what’s going to happen next patch.
