Valorant is what competitive players have been waiting for for some time. The union of the classic conception of shooters with new trends. The Riot title enhances the skills of the individuals, thanks to the technical skills required and the mastery of the agents' skills, but above all it emphasizes the synergy of the team. Victory and defeat do not depend on chance, but on the decisions of the players.

Valorant is the perfect Riot product, destined for success despite the fleets of malicious tongues ready to perjure themselves. The software house that came up with League Of Legends knows how to make an interesting world, knows how to chisel gameplay around key concepts and knows how to wink at a certain audience; Valorant is the perfect demonstration of such features. Despite the young age still shows the side to some problems, both from the technical point of view and from the purely playful point of view, between severe anti cheats and bugs of various kinds, the premises for a product able to conquer there are all of them and if Riot will be able to maintain them will have the umpteenth golden goose in his hands.

Valorant’s gunplay feels just as weighty and precise as CS:GO’s, with a structure that hits all the same highs and lows. Abilities sometimes let you outsmart people rather than simply outshoot them, and I’m excited about playing in a squad of friendly and coordinated pals. If and when they fall away, though, I expect I will too.

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. But Valorant feels like it was meticulously designed in a laboratory to fault. It's fitting given that Riot has over a decade of data and esports experience, but the sterile feel of it does impact my decision to play it more regularly.

Valorant is a great mix of well-known online shooter mechanics. The developers haven't created anything unique or special, but they have nailed the most important aspect - Valorant is really, really fun to play. An additional success - almost everyone has now heard about this game thanks to the controversial marketing.

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.

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'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 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 is a clever tactical hero shooter that's plenty deep, and a lot of fun to master.

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

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
