The majority of user reviews either have no commentary at all or only have one or two sentences, but some highlight a number of the frustrations that players have encountered while playing the Blizzard-developed team shooter.

"the primary reason this game was called Overwatch 2 was the announced and overly advertised PvE missions, with the new hero skill trees, customizable abilities, and hero progression, and then after over 3 YEARS of waiting, basically everything PvE-related that was announced in this trailer was canceled."

This statement was made in reference to the fact that the PvE missions that were announced in the trailer were scrapped.

Another user commented, "They released Overwatch 2 using the free-to-play business model, which leans more heavily into microtransactions, overpriced skins, and predatory behavior."
