    If you have a PS4, Xbox One, or PC, you should really give Apex Legends a try. It’s managed to hit the ground running, with very little in the way of server issues or other hiccups after the first week. It’s clear Respawn has plans to support the title in the long-term, and the six Legends characters available from the start (with two more unlockable via in-game currency) provide enough variety to begin with. This will be the Battle Royale title I stick with for the immediate future, and I’m excited to see this game evolve over time.

    Apex Legends is not Titanfall, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a special game packed with potential for greatness. I’ve put a lot of hours into Respawn’s latest, and haven’t had the desire to stop yet. The combination of character-driven powers, streamlined team features, and fantastic gunplay have elevated this unexpected spin-off into my go-to battle royale, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.

    Apex Legends is the real deal. While it might not convert the PUBG faithful or fans of the candy coloured build-fest that is Fortnite, there’s no denying that Respawn’s latest effort is very special indeed...There are problems, and the balance issue that currently lets every character wade around like an unkillable superman is certainly something I want to see resolved, but the foundations of the game – detailed teamwork, slick movement and good weapons handling – are all present and correct. With two friends at your side, this could be one of the best free FPS games out there.

    Apex Legends is squad-based battle royale done right, complete with cool heroes, a superb communication system, and polished mechanics.

    Apex Legends arrives fully formed, feature complete, free and quite, quite brilliant, a game that pushes its host genre forward, refining and redefining its template in the process. [Issue#330, p.102]

    If you’re a fan of the Battle Royale genre or first-person shooters in general, Apex Legends is at least worth giving a shot, and even if you’re not a fan of those things, try it out anyways and see if you fall in love with any of the game’s charismatic characters.

    Apex Legends is an incredibly intuitive and well-thought-out battle royale game that is worth trying out for yourself.

    I'm usually uninterested with BRs. This game is the perfect meeting between a BR and Borderlands. Loved it!

    Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall spin-off should have been an easy contender for the coveted title of best battle royale game on the market.Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall spin-off should have been an easy contender for the coveted title of best battle royale game on the market. It has several innovatove systems, unique mechanics, and an identity all its own. Unfortunately a plethora of technical issues prevent it from being anything more than a source of frustration and disappointment.

    The ping system is by far the game's greatest achievement. It allows you to communicate a wide array of information to your teammates with the simple press of a button. You no longer need to cross your fingers and hope everyone on your squad has a mic when jumping into a match with randoms. Apex Legends makes it surprisingly easy to coordinate without saying a single word. A good thing as the entire package is built around grouping up.

    You'll find no solo options here. It's you and two other people all the way. A concept that's made a little more interesting thanks to the 8 playable "Legends" characters (6 of which are available from the start) that each have their own unique abilities. With no one on your squad being able to select the same character it's up to you to choose the one that best complements whoever your teammates picked all while finding the one that best suits your playstyle.

    All of this mixed with the smaller player count compared to its contemporaries and Titanfall's excellent gunplay should have been an easy recipe for success. However, Apex Legends is something of an unpolished mess when it comes to server stability. Which means whenever I'm not suffering through an obscene amount of lag, I'm regularly losing my connection to the match all together just as things start to get good. Even when booting it up for the first time I can see the game struggling with simple character animations in the main menu. Obviously, this isn't an issue for everyone as I've seen plenty of people who have been able to climb high in the ranks, but I honestly don't believe that it's just my internet connection as I can play the technical dumpster fire that is Fallout 76 with next to no issues. As it stands, there are a lot of good ideas in this battle royale, but for me and others I'm sure it's currently in a state that's unplayable.

    Don't get me wrong, I love APEX Legends, what I don't love are constant game breaking bugs. As of Friday, December 20th 2019, the battle passDon't get me wrong, I love APEX Legends, what I don't love are constant game breaking bugs. As of Friday, December 20th 2019, the battle pass is broken for a handful of users. I have been stuck at level 11 for 2 days and the game REFUSES too let me passed. Since I've been counting, I have leveled up too level 11 a total of 6 times. Each time, it shows on my screen the new P2020 skin, but when I check my inventory, it isn't there, and my battle pass is stuck at level 11. Even if they fix this, this review will stay at 1 point, the fact this is even happening is bizarre, and BEYOND pathetic. One of the most successful games EVER released, and the leveling system doesn't even WORK? Used to have respect for Respawn, not anymore. Expand
