A few years ago, I played Paladins for the first time on Nintendo Switch. It was a free yet addictive game. I heard comparisons to Overwatch which didn’t come out on Nintendo Switch until last year I think. They had it half off, so I decided to buy it.
The Paladins team claim that they base their game off of Team Fortress 2. After playing OverWatch for a few matches, I can see that Paladins is a shameless rip-off of OverWatch, no doubt about it
There are a few differences between Paladins and OverWatch. And there are some things that Paladins does that I think is better than OverWatch. But OverWatch is definitely better in graphics and overall presentation.
OverWatch is mainly multiplayer, with quite a number of game modes and maps to play on. You always play on teams for the most part, and every team usually has two members of different classes of heroes.
You basically have three classes to pick from as a character. You have characters that are great for defense, amazing for offense, and then another class that are mostly healers to protect the other characters.
Overall, after a few hours of OverWatch I’ve been having a lot of fun. I will imagine after many more hours, I’ll probably be playing it more hours than paladins.
