"There’s a thick cloud of controversy above Evolve’s head, full of whispers that the game is either boring or lacks substance. We’ve heard them, over and over, but are they really true? "
I'm so glad I will pass on this game.
I think, if you had a group of friends playing together it would be a great time. I just don't find that to be a practical requirement for purchasing a game. I also think it wouldn't have legs, even if I had a dedicated group to play it with. As it stands, my friend and I have been tearing through Dying Light coop, and having a blast. Evolve is just not for me.
Playing Dying Light with a friend. It is just a FANTASTIC game.
yes it is a bit ,...and considering the ridiculous DLC prices which accompany it(basically selling one game in many very expensive parts) ..they show no respect to the consumer and we see price cuts very soon
The game seems to be in grievously against the monster-players. Every video I see of this game, the hunters always win.
I have it preordered, but I'll probably pass on it. I have no idea if my friends are even getting this game or not. I'd be better off saving my money for Bloodborne or just getting Dying Light at this point. If they release a Evolve Definitive Edition with all the DLC included, maybe I'll get it then. I still have tons of other games to play and finish as well, so I won't be bored waiting for more games to come out.
I'd say yes and no. From the BIG Alpha to the Open Beta, the game feels the same everytime. After a few games I'm pretty bored. If you and 3 other friends plan to play this game together, should be fun... If you plan to play this with strangers, don't.
I played the beta , was different and can become boring but I learned that switching out teams makes it real fun. JMO
The beta was boring after 5 matches of the same exact thing. I am hopeful that this game will offer more than what I've seen. It's gone from a "day 1 buy" to "meh" pretty quickly for me.
Its not a bad game. Its just not a game I nor most of my friends will be dropping more than 30 bucks on.
i really had no interest in this game when i saw the trailer i was like this is gonna bomb but i didnt say much about it cause i didnt see much or played it but from what im hearing now... teh figured
Lacks content. I would spur this game on and give support, but they've already planned expensive dlc, so no.
Yeah it does become boring surprisingly quick, it seems to be missing that spark that gets you hooked which is something L4D had and which a game in this genre desperatly needs in order to keep you playing the same thing over and over again. It is a shame because i really wanted to love this game.
i'll buy it when its 20 bucks. should be no time at all.
It's not a game I could play for hours in a row but I think it will be fun though. The main problem for me is that the price is way to high for what it offers so i am going to wait for a good sale price
So it begins. Makes sense seeing as Evolve is right around the corner.
An issue a lot of people seem to have with this is that they think it's just your conventional FPS, this game has more in common with RTS games like Starcraft, where there is an ever changing dynamic of strategy. Starcraft has only three factions, but that doesn't mean that it gets repetitive, this is only the case if you use the same strategy over and over again. Likewise with Evolve if you simply tail the monster during the entire match then you won't get anything done and you'll get the same results every match, unless the monster is horrible. If you play properly with a good team against a smart monster, then this is some of the best fun you'll have in the last few years.
Probably the most intelligent comment on this thread. I agree completely. People are so used to brain-dead FPS games that they play every FPS game as if it required "brain-dead" skills.
This was a similar issue with titanfall, where a large portion of players didn't make use of the parkour, and instead just ran on the ground and camped on top of buildings. People need to learn to shed habits used in a specific game if they're trying a new one.
It looks like it would get old real quick. Still looks sort of fun though. I'll pick it up if I ever see it for 20 bucks.
lack of content some of the content is launch dlc the game looks like its worth $30.00.
The beta felt like they had a cool concept that doesn't translate that well to gameplay.Also, it feels like it's only part of a game.
My honest opinion after playing the beta is that if this game were to be part of Xbox Games with Gold or PS+, I wouldn't bother to download it. For my style of play, it did nothing for me. If other people like it, more power to them, I hope they do, but I have no desire to try it again.
When this game was announced I thought it sounded boring. 3 on 1 doesn't even sound fun. The gameplay options would be extremely limited.
Like I said, monster hunting 3 on 1 sounds cool until you actually play it. Give the humans powered armor and then make it 3 on 3 at least.
ofc its boring doing the same crap over and over again
Left4Dead 3 should have been released instead...This game is off to a rocky start. I just don't think the 1 vs. 4 thing works, monster or not.
It's a blast with friends and a snooze to play by yourself. Just the nature of online multiplayer focused games these days. Evolve's just the pilot game for a smart series still finding its way.
To me it is yes, boring because i knew exactly how it was going to play. It's generic first person shooting mechanics are mixed with waiting ten minutes to shoot a monster, that monster running away rinse and repeat. Evolve will be this year's Destiny.
