Overwatch 2 review
by xXWoodinatorXx

Overwatch background. I played the first over two free weekends. I played it a bunch during that time. I thought it was pretty fun but after the free weekends I wasn’t compelled to keep playing. I didn’t get drawn in like others seemed to.

First impressions. The initial launch has been awful on the tech side. It’s like 5 minutes to find a game and games aren’t that long. Plus sometimes you straight up can’t even play. So that aspect sucks but eventually it will be fixed I’m sure.

I think the art style and graphics are pretty bad for this day and age. I haven’t played overwatch 1 in years but I imagine this is barely an improvement, if at all. I have had a couple fun games though. 

I dont think I’ll ever play support. I just don’t like to. Tank and damage only. Early on my best games were with Orisa. Soldier 76 and Cassidy also weren’t bad. At this point I can’t tell if I will play this game for a week and move on or if it will end up liking it more.

Pros: There are a decent number of characters that I like. Cons: They are a lot of duplicates from overwatch 1 so it doesn’t feel that different.

The biggest compliment I’ll give overwatch is that there are a lot of different characters that all feel really good. I keep going back and forth on who my favourites are. It’s hard to decide and that’s a good thing. I still think this games overrated though. It’s not this masterpiece people say it is.

Okay it’s growing on me. It is quite fun, especially when playing with a friend. There’s a long and growing list of characters I like to play as. Ashe, Cassidy, soldier 76, Reaper, bow guy, the dwarf, the tank robot, junk Queen, roadhog, DVA and counting.

Okay I have to admit it. I was a bit harsh on overwatch. I’m having quite a bit of fun. I still think that overwatch is overrated. The first shouldn’t have won GOTY awards. And this one isn’t a new game. It’s a major update that they slapped a 2 on so suckers like me would jump back in. And it worked. But it is a fun game. I keep wanting to test out new characters and come back to old ones. I’ve even found 2 support characters that I like.

Alright I got a good couple weeks out of overwatch 2 and now that COD MW2 is around the corner I probably will never return. But I had a fun time with OW2. It’s a good game. I still don’t think it’s a great game and I can’t ever see myself getting “serious” with it but I did have quite a bit of fun for a little while.

Final Score: B+

Unbalanced. Not super fun.
Never played OW1 but OW2 feels "meh" to me. 
improves on some small things but destructed so many unnecessary things from the first one.
overall is still the same experience as the previous installments.

That game is amazing. Not the sequel, exactly. I mean the core - since is my first time playing it.

Rich characters, interesting lore, deep gameplay and mechanics, charismatic content creators, amazing OST, and the communication with the community is getting better. Season 3 is the right move.

Unfortunately, since I completed my graduation, I had to let some games go to dedicate to my career, but if this game was discovered by me when I was 15yo... dude, I would be playing 24/7.

In addition: this review was made before I knew that PvE was canceled - at least, the way it should be. Also, it's not right to give this game a high score when the merit behind is from another game.
