Team Fortress 2 meets Overwatch!

Who would’ve thought combing these two games would be that much fun. Obviously the developers because it has been a blast. The winning team is usually the faster more aggressive one with more teamwork! Good: Characters do not obviously die (exploding in Roblox), genuinely haven’t noticed any blood, no chat or mics so no swearing, pretty balanced champions, freshish gameplay, and well optimized for lower end hardware. Cons: matchmaking is based on team members rank which can be a train wreck, some female characters are revealing enough to ask why, teamwork is necessary unless in team death match, graphics leave much to be desired even at 2k max settings, and most pieces of custom stuff is behind a pay wall. Overall if you wanted a game that stresses your own skill set and makes you think about your own team just as much, this is the game for you!

Easy to play, but not child friendly environment

The game is a hero shooter, much like Overwatch and Team Fortress 2. There is a learning curve, but the gameplay can be fun. There are a lot of champions to choose from and skills to learn. Warning: For children under 13, I would recommend that voice chat be turned off and enable the "profanity filter" for text chat. The game's community is very toxic for young children and they should not be exposed to such language. Some character skins are also not appropriate for children under 13.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
