Overwatch Update Released/Impressions

3 comments

Overwatch is a Half-Life 2 modification that boasts RTS/FPS gameplay. The simple premise is one player controls the Combine forces from a top-down RTS perspective whilst the other players control resistance characters using the FPS view. Having been released in a public beta in August the game has just received its first major update featuring improved maps, fixes and balancing to further improve the gameplay.

 While still in public beta the game feels very polished in terms of gameplay already, while the mapping is still mostly within the dev textures stage but playable. I was able to play on both maps for a reasonable time period and even got a go at playing as the Combine controller. I found the Combine interface very easy to get used to, soon I was sending my minions at the unsuspecting players while trying to figure out what the best tactics were. Naturally, I lost but next I got to try playing a Rebel.

All my objectives were clearly laid out to me, I was always pretty aware of where my teammates were and I got the jest of what I was supposed to be doing pretty quickly. I must say the riot shield was a lovely addition and helped keep the gameplay fresh but unfortunately I was found the maps didn’t change often and found myself wanting a rock the vote option. I’m sure that we;ll be seeing new maps soon enough though so I won’t hold it against it. I was glad to be playing on a full server with people communicating to each other and learnt a lot about the game from them.

I’d recommend you grabbing this game now here, and keeping an eye out for updates as this mod feels very fresh and original.

  1. Almost all Louis Vuitton purses within the store usually are remarkably created in addition to well made. If you need a top quality handbag, our Louis Vuitton hand bags is normally the correct option, since they are not just classy and interesting, and also inexpensive and durable. This sort of Louis Vuitton replica tote would work for anybody who desires to possibly be good-looking. You should have a make an attempt to opt for a well-content Louis Vuitton bag below. We have been sure that you will be extremely pleased.

  2. Well COD and BF are fundamentally diffreent games. In COD you’re on a team but the game encourages you to go for self and get as many kills as possible. That way a few good players, if not one, can shoulder the load for everyone else. Battlefield requires teamwork to win as it’s an objective based game. You can get all the kills you want but you WILL LOSE if your team isn’t attacking/defending well enough as well as supplying proper support.I much prefer BF to COD especially since COD got long in the tooth after COD 4. However I don’t think Battlefield will replace COD as they cater to separate audiences. Yeah there are people who like both but they’re not common from what I’ve seen.

  3. Wow! Great to find a post with such a clear message!
