The Main Point

Apex Legends has been out for a while now. But, we are just now putting out our Apex Legends review. This is because not only are we a new company, but I also used to hate the game. I thought it was extremely boring because there were no solos. Now, they have finally added crossplay, but it still isn’t my favorite choice.

The Good

  • It’s free
  • Finally has crossplay
  • Pretty frequent updates

The Bad

  • Not very fast paced (at least when I played)
  • Only Duos and Trios modes

Apex Legends is an interesting game. It has a lot of cool features, but it is missing some key things. I haven’t played this game too much, but I have played it enough to get a good idea of how it works. There are a lot of cool weapons, and they change each season. A lot of other things that are in this game are cool, too. But, there are just a few big things that keep me from being able to love this game.

Gameplay

Apex is an interesting game. There are 5 modes that are always in the game: Training, the firing range, trios, duos and ranked. Limited time modes are also sometimes in the game depending on what is going on. This brings us to my first issue with this game. There are no solos or squads. This is a big problem, at least for me. When I have no friends on, I want to be able to play solos. But, in Apex, I would have to play with random teammates. Also, until recently, there wasn’t crossplay, which made this even worse. The fact that there isn’t squads is also a big issue for me. If I have more than 3 friends on, I can’t play Apex, because I don’t want someone to be left out. Now, onto the actual gameplay. There are many types of guns in Apex, and their rarities change each season. Also, you can find armor, helmets, medkits and other heals. Another item you can find is a backpack. This will allow you to hold more ammo, heals and attachments. Backpacks, armor and helmets can come in multiple different rarities. There is a moving zone, as in all battle royale games, and the game ends when one team remains. You can find loot drops around the map for extra loot, too. Even though there is a moving zone, the game still isn’t very fast paced. There are only about fifty players per match, and the map is quite large. You won’t get into very many fights, unless you land with a bunch of people. Overall, this game is decent, but definitely not my favorite.

Characters

There are 15 characters in Apex. Each character has their own ability and passives. This may seem like a lot of characters, but when you first start, you only have 5 of them unlocked. In order to unlock more characters, you can spend Apex coins (the premium currency) or Legend tokens. It takes a very long time to acquire enough legend tokens to unlock a new character. This is another annoying part of the game, and it shares this characteristic with Rogue Company, another game that we recently reviewed. It is quite easy to choose which legend that you want to use. Their abilities and passives are all quite different. You can also get many different customizations for each character. Overall, Apex’s character system does a pretty good job.

Other features

There are a few other features in Apex Legends. One of the biggest ones is frequent updates. Apex receives quite regular updates with new content. Some of these are new seasons, but there are also some mid-season updates. Another feature of Apex is the battle pass. There is a free and paid version of the battle pass. From the battle pass, you can get Apex coins, Apex packs, weapon skins, one new legend per season and character skins. This is one easy way to unlock new legends as they come out, because Legend tokens take forever to get. Apex also has a shop. In this, you can buy different cosmetics daily. You may have noticed that I mentioned Apex packs earlier. These are packs that you can open to receive items. You can get character skins, gun skins, crafting materials and Legend tokens. Apex does have quite a few cool features.
