Reviews for The Hero of Numbani (#1 Overwatch)

For the book: An engrossing read with smooth pacing and action-packed scenes.... Readers will root for this STEM-focused girl hero. -- Kirkus For the game: Blizzard's take on the team-based shooter is as polished as you'd expect, marrying tactical breadth with an emphasis on variety and inclusivity. -- The Guardian It has been a very long time since I've felt this much passion for a game. Overwatch is a perfect storm. It's a new IP, looks gorgeous, plays phenomenally and singlehandedly rekindled my desire to play a genre of game I thought I'd left behind at this point. -- Forbes Overwatch is an amazing experience. It's fresh and consistently fun, with matches that are great in random groups, but astonishingly good when played with friends. Blizzard has taken its masterful art of polishing and perfection to the team shooter, and things will never be the same. -- Game Informer
