Overall Game Of The Year
Overwatch takes an already proven formula and not only make it better, but it makes it fresh and exciting. This game has already given many gamers thousands of hours of thrilling gameplay and with Blizzard set to bring us years of updates, this is a game that won’t be going anyway any time soon.
Each of the set of characters brings something new to the table and with many options to choose from, each round will never feel the same. This is a game which is easy to learn and exciting when you discover the perfect counters and combination of attacks to progress.
I remember the first time I was able to wipe out most of the other team with a carefully planned self-destruct using D.VA. My action gave my team who were losing 23 to 99 a fighting chance. We exploited each character’s weakness. The map was filled many options to attack and defense, as everywhere was a benefit to other person out our team in some way. As my team learned from our mistakes, we were able to defend against the enemy to take the win.
Never have I experienced a rush as that in a long time. Moments like this are a regular occurrence and we can’t get enough of this deeply enriched tactical shooter. Like all Blizzard games, it is a game that suits every play style and everyone will have one character they will fill comfortable with.
