    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.

    What the hell with bad review bombing saying its a cash grab or another soulless BR games ?!
    They sure never play this game and just ranting
    What the hell with bad review bombing saying its a cash grab or another soulless BR games ?!
    They sure never play this game and just ranting because its another BR or just pure hate on EA

    I play almost all major BR games, I played PUBG since its early-access, also sometimes play Fortnite and BO4. And oh boy this Apex Legends is the best from them all.
    Fluid game play, tight fire fight, balanced environment, that amazing pinging system and Legends unique skills, and not to forget those little random chat that our Legends speak corresponding with the situation. They really fixed whats wrong with other BR games, 10/10 from 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

    Despite the crashes and server issues, this is the type of BR I, and many others have been waiting for, since Fortnite. This can be summarizedDespite the crashes and server issues, this is the type of BR I, and many others have been waiting for, since Fortnite. This can be summarized in 4 areas: Gun Play, Movement, Looting and using equipment, and Something Different.

    Gun Play: Solid and fun. Bullets hit were I aim and the lack of bloom while ads is a godsend, however some guns need some tweaking to help with the high time to kill.

    Movement: Sometimes slow feeling but overall fluid, so long as you don't get the rubber banding bug.

    Looting/using: A-1! No overly complicated drop/pickup mechanic, using meds/shields is easy and streamlined with a quick decision wheel. No complaints here at all.

    Something different: a couple have done the "free" game route, a couple have tried the class based route, and all want you to pay for cosmetics, but it doesn't make you feel like you need to pay for those cosmetics and make earning them feel achievable, much like R6:Siege. What this game does different is the 3v60 game mode. This style of BR is truly a wonderful sweet spot.

    I am sure they will add some sort of season pass and other game modes down the line, but with a start like this, it is no surprise that many are hopeful for this games "Expand-off-the-Basics" style and bubbly characters and game play.

    Most importantly, wins in this game actually feel meaningful and Apex legends just further proves, that you don't need to spend 60 dollars on a game for it to be good.

    Updated review: Apex Legends is a fast-paced FPS in the crowded Battle Royale genre. Unlike other BR games, you play as a hero (in this case,Updated review: Apex Legends is a fast-paced FPS in the crowded Battle Royale genre. Unlike other BR games, you play as a hero (in this case, Legend) with 3 abilities (1 passive, 1 active and 1 ultimate). The max amount of players is 60. The game's unique feature is the ability to respawn teammates even if they are shot down (provided you grab their banner and bring it back to a respawn site). The ability to ping anything you want to (enemie positions, loot, directions to an area, etc.) with R1 is very useful. The game runs at 50-60 fps on PS4 and feels twitchy. The core gameplay is a mix of CoD Blackout and Titanfall, you can frantically run and slide and climb walls just like in those games. The game has launched successfully, but it has issues.

    This game is very tough for solo players. You are forced to play in squads of 3 people (there is no solo mode at the moment), and if you haven't brought friends to co-ordinate with you'll be at a big disadvantage vs everyone else playing in a squad with teammates and comms. The frantic pace of the game means there is no room for being tactical, it's more about run n' gun. The current roster of Legends is horrible. But the ultimate sin is that 2 of the currently available Legends (Caustic and Mirage) are locked behind a paywall or a lot of grinding.

    At least Apex Legends is free to play. There is an in-game store selling 100s of cosmetics and skins. Thankfully there are no pay-to-win loot boxes so far. The real issue is you have to pay to unlock new Legends, and this may prove to be pay-to-win depending on their ability kits.

    Apex Legends has been a big success thanks to Fortnite and PUBG's previous success. The game is good, but Respawn need to address the issues.
