Overwatch consists of a multitude of characters that battle each other within a variety of game modes. A 6 v. 6 multiplayer objective-based shooter that has a learning curve, which everyone can start with. A person with very good aim and perfect timed shots isn’t going to win games.

The game is based on strategic cooperative gameplay, allowing you to become emerged into a magical world. The anime style graphics give a remarkable experience. The gameplay overall is a beautiful mix of shooters combined with 4 classes to choose from. Playing the role of the attack character has the advantages of being quick with high damage and low health, while playing as a tank separates the player to be tactical with high heath and slower attacks. For instance, Pharoh is a character that can somewhat fly and leap while she wields a rocket launcher dealing high amount of splash damage. She is swift and powerful. Another character, Rheinhardt, special armor and shield can protect you from a barrage of explosives and bullets. He wields a large hammer that swings back and forth, causing the enemies in his way to collapse at his will. The game is only $40 USD and all content is released without charge. The makers are constantly updating and adding new characters as the game progresses. The skins alone make you want to keep playing the game.

They add updates for seasons too, for instance, the Halloween update added some gnarly skins that you will enjoy wearing during battle. The game has been out for a while now and is still being played more than many other games. It is offered for both console and PC, allowing the player to choose the way they want to enjoy the game. At first the game may feel fast pace and confusing, but after a couple of rounds you will find yourself addicted. The choice of character is up to you, and only as the levels go up the players get better. Once the competitive season starts you better find a well-balanced team or you will find yourself in a bag of losses. If you haven’t already, get the game now. You won’t regret it!
