It looks really good. I love the fact each character is a totally different playstyle. FPS genre needs more varied stuff like that.

This game is fucking great.

And I'm not into MOBAs, online shooters, or general PVP at all, to put that into a bit of context.

Unfortunately, after the disaster that was Colonial Marines, I won't be giving Gearbox a single penny.

I played some beta, I think they need to tone down some of the colour spam tbh! It was alright but my money is on Overwatch

I tried the Overwatch beta but got bored after a handful of matches. Just a bit underwhelming and 'by the numbers' for me, and never been into Team Fortress which I found it to be fairly similar to. Battleborn utterly blows it out of the water hands down, (in my opinion) but it is a very different game. I don't know why they are being compared tbh.

The game modes are so much fun. Each one is quite long, around 30-45 mins each (co-op and PVP), 25 characters to pick from, all totally varied but epic in their own right and definitely (at least) 1 for every type of FPS gamer. Very rewarding too in terms of unlocks and rank/leveling up, all of which come thick and fast. The in-match Helix skill-up system is situational and works well. The story mode is class, especially when running 5 man co-op, but can get a bit little 'gratey' in bits. As I said though, I've never got into the arena/moba PVP type thing not without lack of trying, but this has pulled me in, which is the main thing for me.

I know what you mean about the colour pallet and general chaos, which is an understatement. It's garish as fuck and always in your face, but I love it. It takes away the seriousness, and I never feel bad about losing/being killed. It's just too much fun either way. Also, this game has the best intro/prologue in any game ever. Yes...even better than Saints Row 4

It needs some balancing in Co-op and PVP, and there are some annoying bugs, one of which seems to be a cheese tactic which is making some games a bit shit and will be fixed in the next patch. Also, if you do story mode on online co-op, you only get the choice of voting for 1 of any 4 maps which means you cannot play them in chronological order. However, the episodes story wise are fairly standalone and aren't necessarily continuous. But still, I don't like this, and it's a big complaint so hopefully they'll listen and let us select any map to queue for. For now though, I find myself wanting to play the story mode on single player so I can do them from 1 to 8 in order. Which is fucking impossible as it's hard as nails on offline mode.

Overall, my first impressions are that It's one of the most fun games I've ever played, and would 100% recommend as long as the above gripes are sorted out. I'm even thinking about buying the season pass. For me to buy a season pass for a game is pretty much sacrilege, but I enjoy it that much.

EDIT: There is no ranked/competitive mode. I think this will make a big difference, so I hope it's something they are working on!

I don't think you can judge them on that. I think they took over from another dev it and just tried to get it out of the way ASAP

They outsourced to another studio. Ultimately they were in charge of the final product.

"I didn't bother playing Metal Gear Solid 5 because I played Uncharted 4 instead"

This and Overwatch are different genres of game and cant be compared other than being first person, online and colourful. Ya can play both and enjoy different experiences in either.

Cynical Brit gives a full info rundown of both/differences
