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. -@Bruins2022 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

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

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.

Tracer: That's my line.

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).
