OK, I'm pleasantly surprised. I didn't expect a hero-shooter at all for some reasons. And while the market was overly saturated as Overwatch launched, I feel like most of them died out pretty quickly. Good enough of a reason to give it another try I'd say (although it doesn't seem like the characters are THAT different, so we'll see if it matters that much or if it's just up to personal preferences)

I also hope the basic, "three-steps formula" that the video mentions isn't the blueprint for EVERY match. It's probably toned down for the sake of the video, sure. But it could grow old pretty quickly if there isn't any other game mode (or maps) that spices things up.

Lastly, it did remind me a bit of that old "Spy vs Spy" game on the OG Xbox... In a good way ! I'm sure it will be one of those games where playing with friends makes the experience eons better.
