    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.

    at first glance, apex legends appears to be another, lifeless cash grab battle royale game, however, it is perhaps the most enjoyable of theat first glance, apex legends appears to be another, lifeless cash grab battle royale game, however, it is perhaps the most enjoyable of the large BR games released so far. It has its fair share of issues and problems, for example; gun balancing needs to be tweaked, certain weapons are pointless whilst others are too powerful to leave behind. Some people have criticised the game for having only one map however this isn't a large issue as the CEO of Respawn has already said that new maps, weapons legends and content will release regularly and how often will depend on the popularity and playerbase. it is true that the game could use some more characters with more interesting abilities however they cant be too powerful without making the character OP. Hitboxes are also a problem as characters like gibraltar have such a large hitboxes that playing them rather than wraith or lifeline puts players at an immediate disadvantage, however it does allow for a more diverse looking cast
    The micro transactions in the game are minimal, much like overwatch they're only for cosmetics in game, not giving anyone an unfair advantage. The gameplay is a perfect mix between the fast placed gameplay of fortnite but with the more realistic, gritty gunplay of PUBG. For anyone that put a few hours into titanfall or its sequal, the gameplay will feel familiar except of course for the pilots jump pack. The biggest stand out differance in this game seems to be the respawn points (that fornite quickly pinched) that makes the game feel less like a BR as you can bring less fortunate players back from the dead to re-loot, or die again blocking bullets for you.

    overall, i think titanfall is one of the best FPS games that have been released recently. Respawn have made great games before with the titanfall series that have gone unnoticed by many however Apex has received the attention it deserves. For anyone that isn't tired of the battle royale genre this game is a must play, and anyone that hasn't should still give it a try, and maybe their love for the genre will reappear.

    This is a good Battle Royale game. Not as good as Tetris 99, but really good nonetheless.

    Apex legends is fun and interesting take on battle royale. It combined the classic BR formula with Overwatch. I like how there is a uniqueApex legends is fun and interesting take on battle royale. It combined the classic BR formula with Overwatch. I like how there is a unique roster of characters with different playstyles and abilities. In my opinion, it is better than the tragic dumpster fire of a game 'Fortnite'...
    However, it does get boring/stale after playing multiple games back to back, especially in solo queue; the game is much better with friends. Some guns can be underwhelming COUGH COUGH the Mozambique COUGH COUGH and the matchmaking can also glitch out and put you in a game with only two people in your squad, sometimes even one.
    By the way, people complain about how there is no solo or duos. While duos could be nice to have, solos are out of the question. It's a team based game. What use would Lifeline's passive have? Also, some characters would be overpowered. Playing lifeline in solos is like playing Lucio in an Overwatch deathmatch.
    Overall, it is a good game to play with friends, though it definitely does have its flaws.
