    An excellent Battle Royale, which has many innovations and enhancements and can attract even those who are not fans of this genre. [Issue#294]

    Apex Legends is a quiet revolution in how we communicate in games, and an excellent team-based battle royale I can recommend to anyone, caveat-free.

    Respawn’s game elevates its entire genre, doing away with its failings while innovating upon its strengths. From out of nowhere, it’s become the prodigious new face of a worldwide phenomenon.

    Apex Legends is one of the best multiplayer games of the generation, with an excellent gameplay, a revolutionary communication system and fun and satisfying mechanics.

    I'm excited to see Respawn's plans for the future. Although Apex Legends is fairly light on content at the moment, after having played it for over a week now, it's become my new favorite battle royale game. Matches are quick enough that I never feel burned by a sudden loss and jumping back in with different legend makes it more addictive than any battle royale I've played so far.

    Respawn gives you the most polished Battle Royale experience yet, even though for now it lacks variety in the long run.

    A refinement of battle royale, Apex Legends is great fun — but there's still room for improvement.

It has good voice acting and good characters. The rounds themselves are a lot of fun due to respawns and quick gameplay and good movement. Also the teamplay is good due to the amazing ping system and automated voice lines making it easy to play with randoms. My downsides are the bad network stability and disconnects, armor taking forever to break with certain weapons and hackers lasering you away. Expand

    I first discovered the game watching Shroud play it and completely destroying everyone.
    I then downloaded the game and tried it out.

    Everything really feels polished graphic wise, but it's also having this generic si-fi elements that are quite annoying. It makes the UI more difficult to read imo
    When I then played the first round I really didn't like how the weapons look, even if their handling is really nice. My problem with si-fi shooters is that you can't really relate to these weapons which makes it hard to really get what's an AR or SMG in the first place. I really don't get the point why guns have to look like that.
    But whatever. The game play really nice and the movement itself is really satisfying. On the other hand, the movement is the biggest issue to me. All this sidestepping to dodge bullets and the fact that everyone feels like a bullet sponge makes it extremely hard for me to really like the gun play even if everything feels responsive. If they can add some strong inertia to the movement without making it painfully horrible to play, I think it can be really great.

    The hero system isn't that big of a problem imo. It's kinda "unique" even if other shooters, even br games, did that before.

    Complete **** TTK too high, ruined physics, cheaters, toxic community, FORCED squad. An unworthy descendant of such a legendary game as Titanfall 2.
