If you enjoy competitive tactical shooters, but also wish you could show some flair with spectacular abilities, then Valorant has what you're looking for. It requires precision aim to win duels but allows a lot of room to get creative with the agents' varied skills. Sloppy play gets punished harshly, but when a plan comes together it's immensely satisfying.

Valorant is one of the best tactical shooters in recent memory, featuring superb precision gunplay and an expansive class system for an abundance of depth. With ruthless headshot damage, accuracy proves more important than rival online shooters which may put off casual players. But for those looking for a challenge in an ultra-competitive setting, Valorant is essential – especially since it's free to play.

After League of Legends, Riot Games has seemingly succeeded to create a competitive tactic FPS game with a real identity. The game lies on solid grounds at the state of its launch, which broke a record on Twitch. The question is to know whether the players will keep playing the game long-term with new content, and how the success will translate in esports.

Valorant delivers as a highly competitive FPS. From a pure design standpoint, Riot’s shooter stands tall on excellent gunplay, diverse agents, and balanced maps. This alone is enough to capture the attention of hardcore fans of the genre. It’s been clear in Riot Games communication that they are committed to responding to player feedback and using that to shape their development path. Valorant is already an insanely good game, but it’s poised to become a superstar of the medium in the years to come.

Valorant is likely to make a big impression on anybody that enjoys competitive shooters, even if it is a little light on content at the moment. Genre newcomers will need to stay patient to push past the initial difficulty curve, but its exhilarating combination of gunplay and agent abilities is accessible enough that reaping its rewards shouldn’t take too long.

Despite a few issues, Valorant has a compelling combination of twitch shooting and ability focused combat, fueled by kinetic gunplay and the ever-alluring temptation to get better. I’m excited to see where Riot take this title in the future, and as a free-to-play package, I implore you to download it.

You're going to play Valorant a lot in the future, because though it doesn't have the charisma of the early Overwatch, it's a solid and entertaining multiplayer fps experience: rough, high skilled and incredibly catchy.

Valorant is a well-balanced mixture of CS:GO and Overwatch, that doesn't lose its own identity. The gunplay is awesome and the combat system is deep and fun. Though there are some minor issues like the limited number of maps and some imbalance between the special powers of characters, but since it's an online game, problems at the time of the launch are inevitable. Overall, Valorant probably will be one of the dominators of online realm in the near future.

Valorant is the almost perfect meeting point between Overwatch and CS: GO in Riot Games sauce. Competition, individual skills and co-op come together to create a title that is easy to understand but difficult to master. The definitive spark is missing, but the time to light it is there and Riot knows how to do it.

Valorant hooks you match after match with tight, tactical gameplay, albeit in rather barebones fashion.

Valorant is a fun and exciting tactical shooter but for the time being, it feels incomplete; and though it has some great moments and it can easily keep you playing past your first few matches, the overall presentation of the game is less compelling compared to other hero shooters.

Valorant isn't trying to appeal to everyone. It's trying to appeal to a hyper focused slice of the hardcore shooter fanbase. If that sounds like you, you will absolutely love it.

Valorant's an excellent shooter with a lot of depth brought down by an intrusive anti-cheat program, limited game modes and characters, and mediocre art design.

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.

Valorant doesn't stand out in terms of heroes, maps, or gameplay details but perfectly melts the best part of CS: GO and other tactical shooters together.
