Overwatch – Review
There’s something for you, guaranteed
Imagine if you could have every character you could conceive of, every ability, weapon, and objective in a first-person shooter game. Impossible, right? Wrong! That game exists, and it’s called Overwatch. Blizzard Entertainment created enough heroes and hero roles, weapons and attack styles, map locations, and objectives to entertain everyone. Overwatch also has an endless list of features, great communicability in-game, group finders to meet other players, and much more. Whatever your heart desires, you can bet they made sure to include it.
Nothing is perfect, even Overwatch
Nothing is perfect. Overwatch sure has its flaws. For instance, some new additions to the hero lineup seem overpowered. It makes the challenge of winning the game using skill and practice obsolete. There is also the matter of single-player mode. Unless you have six quality teammates to battle with, you’re pretty much stuck. There’s always Quickplay, but that’s hardly experiencing the real game. Not to mention that if your team doesn’t perform well, it doesn’t matter how good you are. If they all lose, no matter how good you are, you lose with the team.
The game everyone asked for
Overall, it doesn’t matter if you want to shoot at things to let some steam off, or if you’re a dedicated overachiever. Overwatch has something you would love. Everything else is up to you.

Everything you need to know about the game
Overwatch lets you choose between over 30 heroes with differing roles and abilities, and each hero has primary, secondary and ultimate abilities each. You can switch heroes on the fly during your missions according to the capabilities you need. It’s best to take each one out for a test run to get to know what they can do. Overwatch has three types of heroes: Tanks, who are best suited for the front lines. They are essentially your shield troops. Damage, their name says it all. And finally, Support, they heal and help the team.
Your heroes have three layers of health, regular health, armor health, and shield health. The latter regenerates after a few seconds of not taking any hits, but once it’s gone, armor goes next, and finally, your regular health. Once that one is spent, your hero is dead.
Overwatch allows you to choose between 3 attack types. First, there’s Hitscan: No travel time between your weapon and your target. Second, you have Projectile: Some travel time between your weapon and your target. And last, Beam: neither Hitscan nor Projectile, acts like both, and looks cool.
