So I’ve been reading a lot about apex legends and I decided to try it out.
I originally thought it would be “the next big game” like overwatch and I would finally find a new game to play, with what people were saying about it and “how it’s different from all other battle royale games”, I also saw Stylosa, (who’s extremely committed to overwatch) suddenly only posting videos about apex.
I downloaded it today, and it is possibly one of the worst games I’ve ever played.
First off, the graphics are complete garbage compared to overwatch, I get it’s free to play, but DANG they’re terrible. Secondly, the game itself is awful, most of the time I either can’t find anyone to kill, or some stacked team comes and kills everyone at the start of the game, what I’m trying to say is that it’s no different from any other BR at all. Thirdly, the legends have barely in thought in them at all, they all have like, 1 ability and an ultimate, whereas overwatch has at least 3 + an ultimate + passives, including heroes secondary fire, primary etc etc.
On top of that, overwatch has 29 heroes, I get apex is a new game, but it has a LOT of work to be better than overwatch. Overwatch also has a ton of maps and comp gamemodes, whereas apex has 1.
Finally, overwatch has much much more fun game modes, overwatch has custom games which are VERY fun, probably the most fun part of overwatch (IMO of course), there’s also arcade, which is OK.
Overall it feels like overwatch is generally a better game and much more thought put into the game itself, apex is EXTREMELY overrated. Overwatch is definitely having problems but it will NOT be overtaken by apex legends IMO, even by design, I think overwatch is just a better game in general.
Overwatch may be having some issues currently, but apex is certainly not going to take over overwatch anytime soon, I think the problem is, so many people have been talking about apex recently, so people think it’s going to kill overwatch, but if you guys actually played the game you’d realize it’s not that fun at all.
Thanks for reading
