I Don't Trust 2K Enough To Buy Evolve

Richard Drummond of Gaming Tech United writes:

"Evolve’s concept appealed to me right off the bat. The 4 against 1, monster vs hunters game style is a rather fresh idea that I could really get behind. When I saw who was developing the game, I was even more excited because I used to sink hours and hours into the Left 4 Dead series. The problem is when I saw who was publishing it, a publisher who I know all too well, 2K Games."

I trust them fine, the game just isn't fun, IMO. (Even after playing it) Maybe I am in the minority though, seeing as there has been almost nothing but positive previews thus far.

No your not the only one it's pretty boring

Don't tryst previews, they are the same people who said FF13 was fantastic, RE5 was a trip back to survival horror, GTA4 was fun as hell and Aliens Colonial Marines....well you know what happened there.

CocoWolfie1229d ago

hopefully seeing as its the alpha and theres another monster, more classes, and new maps.. hopefully it.. yeno :p

DirtyLary1229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

Agreed. Every match plays the same. Even with a new monster and different maps it's the samething. Thanks for the alpha, got to make my decision without dropping serious money.

Saying every match plays the same could be said of every multiplayer game around. To be honest, you could level that criticism at a lot of singleplayer games as well, everything is repetitious by nature.

It all comes down to whether you're enjoying the repetitiveness or not is all. Every COD match plays the same, every Battlefield match, every Halo match etc. but people go back because they're having fun in the process.

The previews have all been positive, however the majority of the player feedback from the alpha has not been.

Though if the Devs listen to that, they can have it fixed before launch.

trywizardo1229d ago

well , if you have concerns , then wait till you see 3 or 4 reviews (for known sites not small trolling sites)
that's what i do for most of the RPGs and hack-n-slash games (and most of the time they turn on to be awful like LoS2

NinjaRichParty1229d ago

That's the plan. :)

I'll be waiting a few weeks to see how the servers hold up. I don't trust 2K's servers as far as I can throw em. Haha. NBA 2K14 taught me that lesson all too well!

Well I havent played too many 2K games, but I think the fact that I could not play a single match in the time they've had alpha open is kind of a bad sign, I didnt feel too confident about it for a game that's all multiplayer, but whatevs I mainly have 5 games in mind for 2015 and Evolve was an interesting title I thought to pick up on discount anyway.

Battlefront 3, Planetside 2 are main multiplayers im looking forward to, skipping on battlefield and COD for a while.

NinjaRichParty1229d ago

I wasn't able to get hooked up to any games through multiple days on the PS4. It really put a damper on my outlook for the game.

I hope that they use the time between now and the release and really fix this problem.

radler1229d ago

If being unable to play a match in the Evolve alpha was enough to put you off the game, I have no idea why you'd be anticipating Battlefront 3. That game's being made by the same team that gave us the wonderfully busted mess that is Battlefield 4. I'd be willing to put money down on Battlefront 3 having crippling problems at launch.

Heck, it'll probably take 'em a whole year to fix them too.

oODEADPOOLOo1228d ago (Edited 1228d ago )

Im not buying it at launch, just interested in series...I know whos publishing/making the game thats why Im not even picking up hardline.

The only games I trust to play at launch are Uncharted, Metal gear, Batman. Even uncharted multiplayer pretty good, mostly reliable. Metal gears online should be decent too.

Planetside 2 will probably be down a bit, but should be the quickest to fix since SOE is used to high player counts.

I agree with this article.

My one and only game with 2k was last years nba2k14.

The servers were absolute trash and even one period over Christmas they were down for 5 days straight.

Ruined my gaming time with my buddies.

2k would have sold me 2k15 if it hadn't been for that and the fact that mutiplayer was a stealth pay to win system.

Sorry 2k,nothing against you personally, but i feel my money is being wasted on your games.

Love the games, just hate their server
