    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.

    Though I entered a skeptic of Apex Legends, my experience with the title has made me believe that it the best battle royale game currently on the market.

    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.

    This is the most polished, balanced and best looking BR-Game to get released.

I was sceptical first, I wasn't a big fan of other BRs, but i gave it a try like everyone else. And holy **** its addicting.
    Apex got some great takes on the Battle Royale Genre overall, specifically the great gamedesign including a ping system which is a first-of-its-kind. You can fully communicate with your squad, randoms or friends through this system. Next great thing is the balance of the game. You feel like every weapon is viable (except maybe Mosambique) and every Legend or Hero is contributing to your playstyle. There is nothing 'OP' in this game, everything is useable.
    Other great thing are the graphics and atmosphere. The world and every character is crafted with lots of details. You can feel the personality on each Legend and you can customize your Hero how you want with various skins, poses, stats and badges. You can build your own "legacy" with each Legend because your stats and badges are fitting to the one Legend you played.
    If you win a game, you get appreciated through being the champion next game. So everybody knows who to look after and can see you on different big posters throughout the map. It gives you an extra rush seeing you on a big screen hanging there, visible for everyone.
    Only a few deaths are really getting you to rage, normally you'll rage a lot but through clever design choices with armor, HP and TTK you have the chance to win every gun fight and even win games when you are not the biggest 'aimer' in the world.
    On top of all that, it got released in a finished state and is free to play. The prices for the premium currency are more then fair and only thing you can buy are cosmetics, no pay to win what so ever.
    The only big bad thing for me is Origin. Origin is just not working, lots of issues with connecting to friends, to the game and to a lobby.

    You see, I am a big fan of this game. No game got me that addicted and no game feels so good.
    Even if you dont like Battle Royale, this game is nothing like PUBG for example. GIve it a try, trust me.

    At first I was very skeptical, Titanfall without titans? I never liked PUBG and it's clones, but this one is good, give it a shot

    Its a great game with much potential. But at the time it lacks in content and the skins for the legends are very uncreative. The gameplayIts a great game with much potential. But at the time it lacks in content and the skins for the legends are very uncreative. The gameplay feels good. The weapons feel very impactful and sliding down a hill is so fun, epsecially when you are getting chased by the storm. I had a very fun time playing with some friends tho. Expand

    Good but not yet great. Would be nice to have a solo mode a least. Currently you can only play with squads of 3 people. Unfortunately, tooGood but not yet great. Would be nice to have a solo mode a least. Currently you can only play with squads of 3 people. Unfortunately, too many times, other players (even using discord), don't listen much to the rest of the team and you end up dying simply because you are alone against another team. So too often you end up having to follow other people who don't play as a team. At least PUBG has a solo mode. In Rainbow Six and BF4, you have a team but you can still perform well without them. In Apex, good people tend to really stick together so if your team does not, you are dead. Expand

Every 4 seconds aIncredible game, flawless game play mechanics, great voice acting, amazing team shooter. Absolutely the worst servers. Every 4 seconds a connection error, rubber band, or about every other game the game crashes. I have high speed internet and great pings. I will change this to a 10 if the servers ever get fixed along with crashing. Right now i'm very disappointed. These problems render the game near unplayable for me. Expand
