Best Game Ever

I have all kind of games on Pc and Xbox One but I can't stop playing this. Competitive mode is great. If you into multiplayers you won't regret this purchase. I'm even considering buying a 2nd copy to have another account

I bought this for our 14 year old grandson's birthday. He has not stopped raving over it and considers it the best game ever.

so fun

This game is a blast. The loot boxes you get every level are kind of exciting and a nice in-game bonus.

Overwatch is great, but origins edition is not worth it

Origins edition does not offer extra content that's worth the extra money UNLESS you play all the other Blizzard games. Overwatch itself however, is extremely addicting and fun, you are constantly in the action, it's fast paced and chaotic, the are memorable moments when people make insane plays in the Play of The Game feature. I highly recommend this game to anyone from casual to competitive players as it combines the skill emphasising mechanics of an FPS like counter-strike and the teamwork/synergy mechanics of a MOBA like league of legends.

Blizzard's new IP is a Success

Blizzard got it done again. When I first saw the intro trailer for Overwatch I was curious. Though thought it would fit more as a new Pixar Movie or something. It wasn't until I actually got into the closed beta that I could understand what the fuss was about. Overwatch is basically an arena shooter. You take 6 heroes on two teams and clash over various map objectives. From payloads that you escort from one side to the other (or defend from that) and points on the map that you contest over. The modes aren't numerous in Overwatch and that is one downside. But the strength there is that the maps are tailored to the modes they are connected to. The biggest strength for Overwatch is replayability. Can go through dozens and hundreds of matches and they remain as fun as the first time. As you go through the 21 different heroes you start to understand how to use them and are better able to make use of Overwatch's system of swapping heroes at the home base. Changing to counter and respond to what the other side is doing. That allows Overwatch's matches to feel different. The heroes you use and your opponents use vary within a very match itself. If a game is rated on fun then this is a top notch game. There is great production values and if you play with friends the value just goes up. Future maps, heroes, and skins are going to be free. The game isn't about getting the most kills, but working as a group to achieve a goal. Lot more fun to me than most kinds of shooters.
