    It's really bloody good... Take note, other developers wanting to jump on a trend: this is how you do battle royale. [Issue#225, p.82]

    Taken as a finished product, Apex Legends feels like the Battle Royale craze growing up. The possibility of new modes and options to be added is an enticing prospect, but what is here is well worth the asking price. That asking price, of course, is free – and Respawn should be commended for its risky approach to a rapidly oversaturated market. Apex Legends is an excellent shooter, and an excellent Battle Royale title.

    Apex Legends is a mix of smart shooter ideas that makes for a competitive, team-based game that gets at all the best parts of battle royale while addressing a lot of the weaknesses. Respawn's intense focus on team play makes Apex more than just a worthy addition to the genre; it's an indicator of where battle royale should go in the future.

    Apex Legends is without a doubt a fantastic game. It may be lacking a solo or duo option, and it may have a few very niggling issues, but all-in-all it’s a fantastic addition to the Battle Royale genre.

    The adrenaline is no longer the same as our experience with the first games in the genre, but the game design innovations and the enhanced teamplay make Apex Legends a surprisingly fair and justified title.

    Apex Legends is a good Battle Royale game, both in terms of hero-shooter features and approachable gameplay. A new point of view for free Battle Royal games and players.

    Even though Apex Legends has some missteps here and there, it’s still one of the better battle royale games on the market and could give the giants of the genre a serious run for their money.

Made by the company that consists of developers from Modern Warfare 2, the game looks and feels great. Shooting mechanics are solid as is the general gameplay. I’m giving it a 10 on here as I feel like a lot of the 0 ratings are unfair and are based solely off of the game being a battle royal game or the inclusion of LGBT characters. Apparently those 2 things really irritate people.

    The game moves much faster than fortnite and is much easier to pick up and play as there isn’t a building element involved. I do have some complaints. I feel like some weapons are underpowered while others are pretty much useless (pistols mostly). Shotgun spread and damage is confusing at times. Also the lack of a solo mode as well as a 4 person mode.

There are a couple of features that I thought I wouldn't like at first but they surprised me.

    Teamwork - I was a bit disappointed to learn that there wasn't a solo mode. But the use of pings and generic team orders makes it quite easy to work as a team without actually talking to the random strangers you are now in a fight for survival with! the fact that you can either leave the jump to the team leader (randomly assigned) and go down as a group or launch yourself on your own also helps.

    Customisation - including the use of loot boxes and pay to win etc. Again really surprised, there is a small character roster, but they each weapon etc has a huge amount of skins you either pay for with the use of loot boxes or grind to unlock.

    All in all, i thought the gameplay was slick and fun and the different abilities each character has makes it fun to try a different one each time you play! Also, the fact that you take it in turns in your group to choose a character means you can work together quite efficiently!

    A solid BR game in my opinion.

This won't unseat PUBG and Fortnite, not as-is anyways, but what it can do is challenge those BR titles as a free-to-play shooter that puts people into the popular first-person viewpoint and uses the Titanfall control setup and universe to offer a fast paced experience. I kind of like it but I hate playing by myself. The solo experience in this game is simply unacceptable and impossible to win. 3-person teams also feel insanely small and prevent you from playing with more of your friends should you run into a game with a premade group. Lastly, the 60-player cap feels a bit on the light side as it's possible to not see anyone until you're one of the last 10 players alive, which is really odd given how not big the map is. Apex Legends needs work. Expand

    The game itself seems fine, though I am finding it impossible to enjoy it without a solo mode available. Being forced into teams sucks.

    This game is hitting the gutter REAL fast. EA has turned this game into a Micro-transaction cash-grab. Stay away!
