Valorant made a rather old game formula fun that even myself can't deny how delightful the sessions were. It manages to keep what makes the game fun and that's its core gameplay mechanics. So even if you're not a CS:GO veteran, worry not, because the skill-based matchmaking does its job right in placing you with players with the same level of performance and balances the teams.

For years, there hasn't been a fight for Counter-Strike's throne; but in Valorant, Riot Games has found a valiant contender.

As a hardcore shooter fan since the '90s, Valorant feels very well designed, and provides me with a rush I haven't gotten out of so many other big genre games in the past five years.

Valorant is a great multiplayer proposal, that although it includes elements from many other games , it's cohesion manages to entitle it a unique personality. Riot Games has been able to detect the genre by providing a game that remainds us of League of Legends for it soul and spirit, but that is not afraid to explore boundaires and establishes.
