Critics Consensus

While underwhelming as a “sequel”, there’s no doubting that Overwatch 2 is just plain fun, particularly with friends. This is one of the most polished shooters on the market, and the promise of years of future content should give you cautious optimism that it can fulfil the promise of a full sequel in time.

Simon Cardy (IGN)

Overwatch 2’s switch to a 5v5 format breathes new life into what was once the sharpest shooter around. It just hasn’t quite recaptured all of that glory – yet.

October 4, 2022 |

A breath of fresh air for the Overwatch franchise, with the new game modes, characters, and mechanics all working together superbly well, for a genuinely exciting sequel.

Overwatch 2 improves upon the core gameplay and characters fans love, but loses some of its predecessor’s spirit in the process.
