It’s fun, I’m not very good at it on PC, so I’ve mostly been sticking to playing PS4. But I was also better at Titanfall 2 on console than I was on PC, so I guess it makes sense. It’s definitely different than PUBG and all those others. It’s closest probably to Blackout (Black Ops 4 mode) but has many improvements to movement, speed, teamwork options, “hero” abilities, TTK, and inventory mgmt. Almost all are done better. Has the same level of microtransactions that Overwatch does with the exception of characters, but it’s also free to play, so it’s fairly nominal to buy a couple characters for ~$7.
Honestly, I like it way more than PUBG. PUBG has a very deliberate, methodical approach which gives you very little margin for error. Even with armor, you still are easily defeated if someone gets the drop on you and is stocked well. You still have a bit of this with Apex, but there have been many times when I’ve been able to escape, reposition, and overcome another player in Apex.
