Ehhh.. this game is new and refreshing. I still enjoy pubg more overall but it's down to personal taste, I usually like hardcore realistic games and apex is a nice change of pace for me, I was playing pubg for a year solid, I doubt apex will keep me playing that long in one go.
Apex is not really a BR game. It's more like run and hunt game, rather than a tactical survival game like PUBG. I won't rate it as the best BR game because:
1. Apex is very forgiving
You can make many mistake in Apex and still can get out of bad situation safely. There are many legends that can escape ( Bangalore, smoke+passive = litterally cant die if you run, Wraith, Blood, Mirage also quite good in escaping. Even if you die, the game give you 2nd,3rd,4th chance to come back ( well, the 4th chance is that yellow self revive :D)
2. The ring is not scary. In my playtime, I never die outside of the ring before. Unlike PUBG, the circle is your nightmare if you don't plan the time correctly
3. I play Apex so different than I play PUBG. I play alot aggressive , fearless warrior. Playing PUBG sometimes is more scarier than playing a horror game. You really have only 1 life so every step need to be careful.
I'm surprised by just how fast Apex Legends grabbed me, I've 50 hours if not more in-game already and looking forward to some more. In the past, with other Battle Royale shooters I've given them a couple of days but then they fell by the wayside.
What are everyone's favourite aspects of the game?
Yeah I think how well the game will do will be based upon how quickly they can release new content ie maps, weapons and possibly player counts per team like teams of 4, duos and solo games.
