    Its progression system stifles it a bit early on, but regardless, Evolve is a deeply rewarding multiplayer experience that packs both brains and brawn.

    It lacks variety in the long run, but with the right group of people around you Evolve is a great romp with beautiful visuals.

    Turtle Rock delivers a solid multiplayer concept, which is original, accessible and deep. Playing with friends is indeed a great experience, but we think the amount of content might not be enough.

    There’s not a huge amount of content in Evolve compared to many unlock-led games, but by keeping things tight the game always stays focused on what’s important: the thrill of the hunt. The almost absence of variety in the map design may well hack down Evolve’s lasting appeal, but what’s here in the main game is perfect for many great hours.
  5. Did Turtle Rock succeed in laying the foundations of 4vs1 genre? For the most part yes, yet they have too much riding on a person playing as monster – basically, he’s the one who ultimately determines how interesting the game will be. [April 2015, p.58]

    I liked Evolve. It devoured 20 hours of my life without my even realizing (unfortunately due to matchmaking issues I spent a substantial part of that time looking at loading screens during attempts to connect to a sensible match). I will never love it though, even if I acknowledge Turtle Rock’s courage in blazing trails, their mastery in AI programming and artistic taste. [04/2015, p.42]

    As an overall game, it offers a basic shooter with a nice gimmick, and I do think you can gather some friends together to get an afternoon’s worth of laughs out of it. I don’t believe there’s enough mileage to have those laughs regularly, though, and certainly not enough to where I’d recommend rushing out and getting it so soon after launch.

    Look it is an amazing game.

    Don't listen to the ppl complaining it's too pricey or whatever. It is exactly what gamers expect of a shooter game to be - it is brutal, epic and to the point.

    The first people to come complain here are usually the ones who did not understand what they are getting into or what the game is supposed to be like.

    It is the top shooter of 2015! Mind my words.

    I must be honest. Initially I thought the game doesn't offer much. I thought it to be confusing, slow moving, with a movement system that feltI must be honest. Initially I thought the game doesn't offer much. I thought it to be confusing, slow moving, with a movement system that felt sluggish and I felt shots didn't really connect. It took me a good few hours and the realization that you can level your monsters and hunters in solo mode to appreciate what this game is all about.

    For some reason Turtle Rock Studios managed to hit the nail on the head once you begin to understand what kind of game this is. What lies between all the hunting and evading, the roaring and the shooting surprisingly does work. The amount of potential you have for teamplay between the 4 out of 12 hunters that go after one of three monsters is simply stunning. The thrill evading the hunters as a monster is genuinely real and rarely have you felt the need for such finely tuned and well thought out movement with such a seemingly large and fearsome protagonist.

    Imagine you are Sam Fisher escaping a bunch of hunters that complement each other perfectly. Only that instead of Sam Fisher you are a moving, jumping, climbing house. Yes once again for some reason it all works.

    For once all I can say is, just play it. Play it to understand it. It isn't grasped in 3-4 matches.
    It takes way more than that because it is way more than that.

    -Money Sucking game with all the DLCs and pay 2 win system,a monster for 15$ a skin for 10$ a character for 15$ all that and the game is just released WTF!!!.
    -Day one patch 3GB (it's your fault for paying them early dumb-heads).
    -You'll get bored after a while (Yawn feast).
    -it will be forgotten in a short amount of time.
    +you may enjoy it with your friends but still it's not worth a 60$.

    Stay away from this game and save your money,there are far better games to be released this year don't waste it on this hyped piece of garbage
