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 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.

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 a fun and addictive competitive game, a trait that seems to be shared with all of Riot’s games. With its roots in CS:GO and Overwatch, it greatly improves on the ideas of its predecessors. By merging a conservative ability system with well-tuned gunplay, it has found the right balance of being friendly to newcomers while having a high skill ceiling for competitive play.

Valorant is the latest Counter-Strike or CS:GO that I did not realize was the most appealing I needed. Abilities bring to each modification an addictive dynamism and enhance the reach of collaboration with this FPS type.

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.

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.

All in all, Valorant is definitely not for everyone, but the game is completely free to play so you have nothing to lose. It might not be the most original game, but it is expertly designed and iterates on many proven and classic video games. If you are interested in tactical shooters, Valorant is a must-try.

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 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 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.

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 leans heavily on its predecessors, but makes use of established schools of thought and the unique novelties of its Agents to create a fresh take on tactical shooters, even if its launch is a little slim. For years, there hasn't been a fight for Counter-Strike's throne; but in Valorant, Riot Games has found a valiant contender.

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.
