  • Uptown Games - Overwatch Review

    This is Uptown's review on Overwatch!

    We would like to extend a hearty welcome to the newest member of  Uptown Jordon Li, who has written this great review!

    He is an avid gamer and blogger,who spends hours playing games and as such is able to give you an enthusiastic and impartial point of view.

    We hope you enjoy. Any thoughts, please do not hesitate to let us know via the comments section below.


    Overwatch Review.


    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.

    Uptown Games are delighted to confirm that all customers that purchase Gears of War: Ultimate Edition,will be able to unlock the entire Gears collection via Xbox One Backward Compatibility for no additional charge!


    “Gears of War” Backward Compatibility Q&A


    Q:           Which “Gears of War” games are coming via backward compatibility?

    A:            Fans who play “Gears of War: Ultimate Edition” while connected to Xbox Live anytime between Aug. 25 through Dec. 31, 2015 will receive free Xbox 360 tokens for all of the previous “Gears of War” games (“Gears of War,” “Gears of War 2,” “Gears of War 3” and “Gears of War: Judgement”) once backward compatibility launches in the fall. In addition, they’ll be able to play all of the games on Xbox One for free when backward compatibility launches this Autumn.


    Q:           Do the tokens expire? Do I need to use the tokens by Dec. 31, 2015?

    A:            No, the tokens will last indefinitely.


    Q:           Do I need to have Xbox Live Gold?

    A:            No. Even if you have a free Xbox Live account, you can play “Gears of War: Ultimate Edition” while connected to Xbox Live Aug. 25 through by Dec. 31 2015 to unlock all “Gears of War” titles via backward compatibility when the program launches this Autumn.


    Q:           How do I get the tokens? Do I get them right when I purchase the game?

    A:            Fans will receive tokens through Xbox Live messages once backward compatibility launches this fall.


    Q:           What happens if I already own one of the “Gears of War” games for Xbox 360?

    A:            You’ll get access on Xbox One to the “Gears of War” games you already own when backward compatibility launches this fall.


    Q:           How does backward compatibility work if I only own physical copies of my Xbox 360 games?

    A:            When you insert the Xbox 360 disc into the Xbox One optical disc drive, the Xbox 360 game will be downloaded and installed to your Xbox One hard drive. An initial download is required that will require an Internet Connection. You will need to insert the Xbox 360 disc in the Xbox One Console whenever you want to play this game.


    Q:           With backward compatibility, will I be able to play multiplayer on “Gears of War,” including co-op?

    A:            All gameplay modes for all “Gears of War” titles including co-op multiplayer, will work on Xbox One via backward compatibility just as they do on Xbox 360. Additionally, fans who play any of the “Gears of War” titles on Xbox One via backward compatibility can play with those who play the same game on Xbox 360.


    Q:           Why would I want to play “Gears of War: Ultimate Edition” on Xbox Live for tokens when I can just get the titles via backward compatibly when it launches this fall?

    A:            By playing “Gears of War: Ultimate Edition” on Xbox Live Aug. 25 through Dec. 31, 2015, fans will receive all “Gears of War” titles via backward compatibility, even if they do not own any of the games on Xbox 360.


    Q:           Doesn’t releasing the original Gears via backward compatibility dilute the value of “Gears of War: Ultimate Edition?”

    A:            “Gears of War: Ultimate Edition” is a complete remastering of the original game –  painstakingly reimagined from the ground up with recaptured and rebuilt cinematics, new achievements and modernized gameplay for an even better “Gears” experience. “Gears of War: Ultimate Edition” also offers new features and content including modernized controls that have been re-tuned for Xbox One, new maps, modes and missions, access to the “Gears of War 4” multiplayer beta, new Achievements, improved haptic feedback and an additional difficulty level – it’s a must-have for every “Gears” fan.


    Q:          When you unlock the “Gears of War” series on Xbox One Backward Compatibility, will it include DLC from any of the Xbox 360 titles?

    A:          If you previously purchased the DLC, it will be supported in Xbox One Backward Compatibility. However, we are not gifting DLC as part of this package.


    Q:         What if I went back and bought DLC on the Xbox 360 version of the game?

    A:          Yes, if you purchase DLC for the “Gears of War” series, it will be supported in Xbox One Backward Compatibility.
