Beautiful integration of team play, varying roles, and objectives.
- Digital Trends
Overwatch is just a bit thin, but it meets most of the basic expectations of a multiplayer shooter and in some ways, exceeds them. Its impressive stat-tracking, per-character control mapping, and accessibility options stand out.

With so many heroes there's plenty of variation, even within each class and you're bound to find ones to suit your personal style of play. As with TF2, you can switch during a match so you're not stuck with a hero until the end like most MOBAs.

Bright, colourful, bold characters and locations combine with near flawless performance. Everything is just so clean and slick.

What experts didn't like
The biggest drawback, is access to the story, and the lack of a campaign. With this huge cast of characters, fitting them all into a canonical campaign might well water down the final product. Which means that the majority of the backstory is only available outside of the game. You need to visit the Blizzard website to get the profiles, watch the videos or read the comics.
- True Achievements
Bad team composition can be frustrating.

Expensive ($60) for having no single player.
- Digital Trends
Tying modes to maps in this one-to-one fashion has a small downside too though: Overwatch doesn’t have a ton of different modes to switch things up like most other games of its kind do.
