Initial Reaction: “Overwatch” beta
I’ll be honest. I grew up with Macs, so therefore, I never became much of a PC gamer. In result, I never played many of the classic games from Blizzard Entertainment. I never played any of the “Diablo” franchise, nor did I ever fall for the “World of Warcraft.”
In fact, the last Blizzard game I played, and absolutely loved, was “Lost Vikings” for Sega Genesis. That games was sick.
Anyways, “Overwatch” is nothing like “Diablo” or “World of Warcraft.” In a way, Blizzard has moved from MMO RPGs to a versus multiplayer game in “Overwatch.” So far, my initial reaction from the online beta, is that this game is great, but could overstay its welcome.
Blizzard Entertainment co-founder Michael Morhaime said the intention of “Overwatch” was to “create an awesome FPS experience that’s more accessible to a much wider audience while delivering the action and depth that shooter fans love.” From my experience shooters without campaigns or story modes have action, but lack depth.
