Just a personal opinion on the Evolve alpha, listing the good things, bad things, and the massive amount of content that Turtle Rock gives us!
Images of a toilet come to mind.
The idea of 4 players battling creatures in the wild is pretty cool. Basically Left4Aliens... but this looks more like a concept that is being ran with, without all the other things that make a game good like story.
Going to try again this morning. Played two games yesterday, one as hunter one as monster and both were over in 2-3 minutes. I was hoping for a more epic experience, so will try a few more games in search of that.
Yeah my first match we killed the monster in a minute 30... What makes it so much worse though is that you wait 10 minutes to play what amounts to the shortest MP match I think I've ever seen. Then I played as the monster, made it to stage 3, and killed all the hunters. It was fun, but I guess after all the insane hype its' generated I was expecting more. I could see this suffering from the same problem TitanFall had. There just doesn't seem like there will be enough going on in this game, content wise, to give it long legs. Guess it's back to waiting for Halo,UC4, and RainbowSix for me.
Yall may be fighting inexperienced monsters then. My brother played 2 matches yesterday and 1 was over in a minute 30 but the other battle lasted about 15 minutes and ended with all Hunters on the ground with a last stand winning the game and killing the monster.
It's well made. The only thing that could let this down is the actual concept.
I tried two matches. I had absolutely no idea what to do. There was a giant dome around us the first match. I couldn't figure out how to find the monster. Second match I played as a monster. I could only hit even though I thought you could throw rocks and breath fire. It ended when a dome appeared that trapped me between the edge of a cliff an the dome and I couldn't move. I was really looking forward to this game but not anymore.
sounds like you have no idea how to play. that doesnt make the game bad. it just means you are bad at it
I think the only thing that could hold this back is if you get someone playing the monster that is not very good and just dies too fast. Here is a cool 60fps video showing a game that lasts about 10 mins, although they do spend a lot of time running around looking for it... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Played it on Xbone. Found the game so boring. Pleased I opted not to pre-order.
Played a few more games this morning with people that knew what they were doing. My god, it was so much more fun than last night when my longest match was 3 minutes. Had an epic 25 minute hunt, with a full team mic-ed up. The monster put up a real fight, was very evasive and stealthy, evolved quickly and we only just took him down. Another match I was the monster, I familiarised myself with the controls and actions and survived about 20 mins before being trapped under a dome under attack. I took a deep breath and made sure every move was well thought out and managed to kill everyone only just surviving. It was actually epic.
the game is really cool, and different so i applaud turtle rock. it sad people are already shooting it down when its just alpha, have a more open mind and dont expect a full game when it isnt even done yet. this game will go on my list for sure
Ive played 20+ games and unlocked kracken & hes so different to fight/play as.I like the game but agree might get stale quick. Asymetric gameplay are my fav vs games tbh,but they seem to be hard to balance.one way to try & keep the game fresh would be to release a new monster every few weeks,if thats possible?. Didnt get to play with friends much due to server instability and the longest load times since games came on cassette....geez its going on 10 mins between games,but the devs guarenteed that wont be in the final build....if it is though this game will probably die a quick death,due to other games releasing during the load time...lol..
