As much as I love video game events all year round, my favourites are more often than not the Halloween ones.
Partly because the holiday allows devs to get really creative, and Halloween is my favourite holiday in the first place.
Here is the question of the day, has the Overwatch Halloween Terror event delivered this year? I know has only been out for five days, but I wanted to talk about it, so let’s do just that.
I didn’t start playing Overwatch until last November, so I missed out on the first Halloween Terror Event. This means I can’t compare this years to last years. I regret not playing it sooner, but there is no point in dwelling in the past.
Junkenstein’s Revenge is a fun game mode, that is if you get a decent team. This might just be me, but quite often when I play no one selects Ana forcing me to play her. I am horrible as Ana. The only Sniper I am decent as is Hanzo.
However, thanks to this game mode I discovered that I am really good as Soldier: 76 and passable as McCree.
There is another version called Junkenstein’s Revenge: Endless Night which gives you four more heroes to choose from but I am not that keen on it.
I am not a big fan of wave combat nor ranked/leaderboard games, but I can see how others would get a kick out of this mode.
In all honesty, I am a bit miffed about the skins. Don’t get me wrong, the ones we got look cool and all, but I don’t play as any of them! I am a D.Va main for life, and she got nothing this year. She rarely gets anything for the events and it is starting to get on my nerves.

That being said, I like what they did with the maps. Nothing ground-breaking, but a touch of Halloween flair is always a good thing in my books.
All in all, it’s a decent event. I will admit that I am disappointed by the skins but that is just my opinion. I got caught up in the hype so its no wonder that I feel let down by what I got, and what I got was a fun game mode and that’s all I really need anyway.
