Dealspwn: So far, Evolve hasn’t made the best of impressions. The Kraken is a clunky creature to control and it’s frequently unclear what it’s supposed to be doing when the objectives change. Playing as the medic is sadly boring unless you’re diving in under the monster’s feet wearing your invisibility cloak to revive another teammate who got too brave.
I can also see how until everyone gets really good at playing the game in the other roles, the medic is going to be the most important player in the team –or the one that clears up their mess and suicidal charges. If you’re going to play Evolve online with randomers, the possibility of having a moron in the medic’s shoes means you’re also probably fucked from the start.
I want to be more excited about Evolve than I am right now, but the great idea of four players taking on a massive boss character badly needs polish, or ironically given the name, a few more rounds of evolution as it’s currently slipping down the food chain.
