Overwatch - Origins EditionOverview -
'Overwatch' is the newest game from 'Diablo' and 'Warcraft' devs Blizzard. It was announced in 2014 and has a few things in common with Blizzard’s cancelled MMO shooter, 'Titan'.
'Overwatch' is beautiful, has a fantastic animation style and a diverse, interesting cast. It has a native resolution of 1920x1080 and runs at 60fps with very few problems, unusual for such a multiplayer-oriented game. Even the server load has been acceptable these first few days, which is a breath of fresh air in an era of fouled midnight releases and debilitating lag.
Like the visuals, Blizzard has spared no expense with the cheerful and perky audioscape of 'Overwatch'. The music is airy, almost patriotic, and the voices are a good match to their odd characters. The guns and abilities sound amazing, just the right mix of sci-fi and good old-fashioned bullets.
Despite Blizzard’s untested pedigree in the realm of shooters, they have managed to craft one of the best entries in this generation. As a critic a big part of my work is to find flaws, and I had a tough job with this game. 'Overwatch' is loud, it’s fast, it’s audacious, and it is a welcome shot in the arm in a flagging genre.
