I love the personality the game has. Personality can make or break a competitive pseudo sport game for me. Something like Rocket League couldn't click with me because it basically had zero personality and no attitude, just grass, lifeless rocket cars and a floaty ball.

Can't speak for Overwatch's game play as I haven't played it. Every time I see it in action I ask myself why it's not from the third person. It seems to me a game that has focused so much on its characters would have you see them while you play.

Agreed. Third Person view would make a lot of sense with this.

Looks like a Borderlands ripoff to me which means I won't go within spitting distance of it. If it was third person then I would at least try the Beta.
