No one would have thought ten years ago that Blizzard could make such a super-powered game as Overwatch. But despite this, the game takes its source exactly from those times.
Those days Blizzard had a reputation as MMO creator and producer of other high-budget sequels. Titan – a game that became a rudiment of Overwatch, was an epic, sci-fi co-op game in the way of World of Warcraft. But for decades, Titan went down the drain. Blizzard had nothing left but to close the project and focused on smaller projects like Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm, which was easier to maintain. But from the ashes of Titan, Blizzard rose Overwatch – same ideology, but more improved co-op shooter.
Overwatch is the newest of the entire lines of heroic games that have been at the top for the past few years. This game designed to play in alliances, where you should constantly assisting and cooperating with others.
The basic game structure is very similar to Team Fortress2 – there are fixed matches in which the player has to capture or defend particular points (depots). The game’s main goal is to cause constant clashes between outlandish heroes who seek to capture another parcel of land.
Characters’ lineup in the game surprisingly diverse, even if we consider the base classes, such as Offense, Defense, Tank, and Support. Let’s try to take for comparison two Tank characters – Roadhog and Winston. Both are classified as enormous sized Tanks, which have plenty of health points, but there is no resemblance there at all.
Certainty, some figures can overlap with prototypes from other games. For instance, the behavior pattern of Soldier:76 can remind you Call of Duty game, and Torbjörn is into a lot of the same things with tower constructor Engineer from Team Fortress 2. No sooner than you start Overwatch, you will understand how each character is unique and totally different from any other, how easy and pleasant it is to play.
The game was designed so that you had to turn to teamwork throughout all stages. The only thing we want to draw your attention to is that one of the doctors(healers) is innoxious in itself, maneuvers with very small movements, and has a very small handgun. But if she identified the member from her alliance on the map, no matter how far he is, then she can reach him with accelerated force, faster than any other character in the game. Personalities of this kind only boost interest in the development of the game scenario.
It should be recognized that for beginners, it will most likely be a little more difficult to start this adventure, all players will make a fresh start.
In the case of Overwatch maps composition, particular maps such as Russian military base or Japanese village focus on enhanced joint efforts of your team to overcome the first obstacle in gathering all your strength and bulldoze it. But as soon as this stage is passed, an incredible number of new routes and targets will open for you.
It is almost hopeless to play this game alone. It will just be a waste of time, so we strongly recommend to engage your friends and mates in an interesting adventure and share the joy of victory together.
Well, a little stray from Overwatch’s strategy itself and accentuated the amazing graphics of the game. The color palette is created so professionally that even the darkest heroes, such as the undead Reaper, look like an idol of pop culture.
After completing a level, the player gets a prize crate, opening the possibility of improvements and updates. Without replenishing your game account with real money, this can take more time, sometimes up to 10 hours, but it is not a fact that you will be satisfied with the skill you unlock.
Compared to other games in this category, there are fewer modes and missing campaign mode.
Undoubtedly, Overwatch was created incomparably and at a very high professional level. A variety of original and interesting characters, their interplaying with each other creates a unique team-game experience.
