This is Uptown's review on Overwatch!

We hope you enjoy. Any thoughts, please do not hesitate to let us know via the comments section below.
Overwatch, Blizzard’s first original franchise in nearly two decades but what is it? Overwatch is a team based shooter with a range of 21 heroes to choose from and more are teased to be released such as Sombra. Each hero is designed for specific situations and counter other heroes while the hero chosen by you can also be counter by your opponent causing you to change both your hero and your strategy. These heroes are split into four categories: offence, defence, tanks and support all excelling in different areas. The offence class is designed to engage the enemy in almost any situation, with their high mobility and damage. Defence excels at locking down an area by creating turrets, blocking the way to an objective, ultimately trying to counter anything and everything that the attackers attempt. Designed to soak up damage, the tank class must protect their team, stopping all incoming attacks while allowing your team to attack the enemy and finally the support. Supports can change the tide of the battle through buffs for your team such as a damage or speed boost or by healing you. No matter what your play style, this versatile game provides a hero for everyone.
With such a variety of playable characters, Overwatch never ceases to entertain me as a player as every each game is different from the last. The high reliance on teamwork also allows for some spectacular plays and a combination of abilities between different characters and (if you pull this off) you may get chosen as “play of the game” where all the players in your lobby will be shown what you did and as a player. Now, this is one of the most satisfying awards you can get in the game
I also like the fact this game requires the player to be flexible in the sense that the player needs to be able to play multiple roles effectively. For example, If there is a bastion, turret or a Widowmaker or any other long range high damage dealing hero stopping your team from reaching the objective, you need to be able to play as a tank such as Reinhardt, shield your allies while someone else plays as someone with a high mobility such a Tracer. Not only does this allow you to protect you team but the Tracer will be able to get behind enemy lines and deal with the sniper and turret.
Although on the face of this game, it may seem basic but it’s far from it. Unlike other games, it requires the player to think about what they need to do in order to counter their enemy. On the whole, there is nowhere I can fault this game, it’s fun, strategic and something original that is available on PC, PS4 and Xbox 1. I have no doubt it will entertain you and for those who are into competitive gaming, competitive modes are available once you reach level 25. This is so you will develop some skill in the game and you will be going against other skilled players as there won't be anyone new to the game pulling your team down.
Overwatch is being sold for £41.99 on PS4 and Xbox 1 and I believe that this a reasonable price for Overwatch, especially since it's in high demand with almost 10 million people taking part in their open beta. This is a huge amount of people when you compare it to Destiny's open beta with 4.6 million and The Division's open beta with 6.4 million.
Judging by the amount of people who took part in the open beta and my personal experience with the complete game, I would highly recommended this game for anyone, no matter what your gaming background, giving it a 9/10.
