On paper, “Apex Legends” sounds a lot like “Fortnite.”

It’s a free-to-play shooter centered around a Battle Royale mode! It’s available on several gaming platforms! It’s full of colorful loot!

In reality, “Apex Legends” is a very different game in the same genre as “Fortnite.”

If you’ve spent any time with the “Titanfall” games, you’ll feel at least some tinge of familiarity with “Apex Legends.”

There’s a simple reason for that: “Apex Legends” is made by Respawn Entertainment, the EA-owned studio that made the “Titanfall” games. In fact, “Apex Legends” is sort of a “Titanfall” game, albeit one without wall-running or giant, hulking robot suits.

What it lacks in that stuff, it keeps in excellent first-person shooting. Above all else, “Apex Legends” is a really, really great multiplayer first-person shooter.

Yes, it’s a Battle Royale game. And yes, it’s a free-to-play game, with all the baggage that phrase comes with. But, more than any of that stuff, “Apex Legends” is a best-in-class first-person shooter.
