    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.

    Basically best in class. Maybe best game this year. Needs friends though to be really fun at the moment but maybe it gets solo mode in the future?

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.

    Apex Legends delivers in some aspects but its flaws are noticeable. Characters feel out of place and with no back story in the game, this isApex Legends delivers in some aspects but its flaws are noticeable. Characters feel out of place and with no back story in the game, this is detail is amplified. Gameplay however is certainly enjoyable and exciting. The game is also built for microtranscations and progression is hampered by this fact. Apex Legends borrows elements from other battle royale games or outright cut and pastes. Nothing special, without further innovation this game will suffer in the future. Expand

    I downloaded Apex Legends, to see what the fuss is all about. Hadn't played an EA game since Bad Company 2. I booted up the game, suddenlyI downloaded Apex Legends, to see what the fuss is all about. Hadn't played an EA game since Bad Company 2. I booted up the game, suddenly everything is in German. Ehhhh, i don't live in Germany and i don't speak German. There's no option to change it in game either, so i had to change the Xbox settings. After that it worked, everything is in English, but then i can't login because my account is locked...*sigh* I try to go to EA website and get my account unlocked, but their site is absolutely **** After a few hours of messing around after installing the game, i gave up. EA, get your **** together. I have no desire anymore to play. Expand
