Overwatch is a masterpiece, a phenomenal first-person hero shooter with beautifully deep mechanics and vibrant art.

Paul Tassi (Forbes)

10/10

“It has been a very long time since I’ve felt this much passion for a game. Overwatch is a perfect storm. It’s a new IP, looks gorgeous, plays phenomenally and singlehandedly rekindled my desire to play a genre of game I thought I’d left behind at this point.”

10/10

“Truly, I believe that we’ll be seeing a lot more of Overwatch in the years to come. Blizzard has a great track record when it comes to long-term support, and given how good it is out of the gate, it can only get better from here. Blizzard has truly snatched victory from the draws of defeat.”

Dan Murphy (God is a Geek)

9.5/10

“An incredible game and should be enjoyed by everyone, and the most fun I’ve had with a shooter in years. Brimming with personality, the only concerns are longevity, and how dependent it is on other players to make the game fun.”
