    Overall it is hard not to be impressed with what Turtle Rock have achieved here, as Evolve is truly unlike anything available at the moment. Its no-nonsense approach is a breath of fresh air, and while the steep learning curve may force some gamers out of the loop early, those who remain will help form the core experience of the game in the months to come - a version of natural selection if you will.

    With its balanced class-based, teamwork orientated gameplay, great graphics and slick mechanics that keep you playing into the wee hours of the night, Evolve itches that competitive urge and feels a lot more evolved that your standard, run-of-the-mill shooter.
  3. Evolve has nice graphics and atmosphere, but you may be bored because of long matchmaking times and some bugs. Nevertheless, it is quite fun to play with friends.

    Evolve is, in the ideal environment, enjoyable, a game that offers a really interesting experience. However, that environment is hard to attain and weighs down a risky idea, where we miss more content in the form of game modes and where solo mode is, in short, unnecessary.
  5. 75
    Evolve has a hint of greatness, but a lack of content at launch and a jarring amount of premium launch and planned DLC hold it back. What we have here is an evolution of the Left 4 Dead formula, not a revolution.

    Evolve has rare highs hidden amongst tedious lows. When the title hits its stride, it is easy to see why it was designed in this way

    No actual campaign and focus on four players and one monster feels fresh only for a while. Currently, the constant repetition simply becomes boring, and interesting content fills only a couple of evenings.

Rabid anti-DLC keyboard warriors have unnecessarily targetted Evolve. As far as the game goes, it looks amazing, plays great, and the characters are diverse. It never gets old because of all of the ways you can toy with opponents and strategize evading or hunting them. As far as the dlc drama goes, the expansion monsters and hunters are not necessary at all since TRS makes sure everything is balanced to a 50% win rate. The prices are the same you'd pay for a map pack in other games only this time, a monster or a hunter changes the gameplay way more than a lousy map pack would and are worth it, but again not necessary. Also, all new maps and modes will be free as the dev has taking great care to ensuring the commmunity stays unfragmented.

    Going back to the game, once you cut through the lies fed by this angry internet mob, TRS is incredibly open about this amazing game that I have no doubt will keep me entertain for a long long time. I personally love playing the monster but all of the classes are so fun that I don't mind any role. It's for both the solo and team player in all of us. If you get tired of online, the solo play is AMAZING with very good bots.

If you want open world and side ops - play "Farcry 4" - if you want content play "The last of Us" - If you want more campaigns, play Destiny.

    But as for pure multiplayer - Evolve is a unique co-op experience that does the job it was designed to do. Not over-complicated - Not trying to be something its not; and stands alone on a shelf of PS4 games that all do similar things.

    Evolve doesn't tolerate spamming buttons, it actually requires a team to use ALL their skills and abilities to take down a monster, and rewards players accordingly.

    Love the haters on here complaining about DLC's that cost as much as a large coffee these days (Get a job) - Things cost money, get used to it - if you don't like it, don't buy it.

    Evolve creators didn't hide what this game was - its been clear from the outset what type of game this would be - and for those like me whom in the early days of MMO lived in Warcraft Bg's and Arena's - Evolve is a welcome addition to further Co-op craziness.

    Clearly teams are only as strong as the weakest link, and trappers whom don't have a clue tend to frustrate other players. If this happens more than twice in a row - I just have a break as the Monster (You don't need to rely on anyone here to punish other players) - Or - even a better suggestion - quit whinging and hone your skills as a trapper or medic and be that difference that your team requires for a result.

    Often in Evolve the stars line up and team play becomes fluent and beautiful - its a fun game and well worth a buy - as long as you already have clear expectations of what the game is at the outset.

    Find a character you love, but be familiar with all play styles (as you will be called on from time to time to play different roles)

    If you're the type of person whom runs away (On an "I AM" quest) from a team mate whom is trapped in a flower do yourself and others a favour and uninstall the game.

    Evolve, for Evolved players only - noobs and solo players need not apply.

I wasn't going to get it, but myAfter playing the beta and going through the whole dlc bundle mess, I knew Evolve was going to be a failure. I wasn't going to get it, but my friend begged me to take his copy claiming it was so bad he didn't want it.

    Let's start with few things this game gets right; Playing as the both hunters and the monster is really fun, The maps are greatly designed, and the whole gameplay takes a refreshing new breath from the military fps genre.

    Now for the bad part; People only seem to be interested in paling the hunt game mode when there are other modes to choose. Each hunters have cliche look and cliche personality (loud, obnoxious, joker, etc). Even though I said the gameplay is refreshing, it gets old very quick. And of course, we have the dlc **** Oh man, is it a terrible feature. First off, the whole different dlc bundles thing was a **** marketing for the profit. Second, this means Evolve is now a pay-to-win. Third, $2 for and **** blue skin? Are they mad?

    Conclusion; It has met same fate as Destiny and Warframe. Little to no content unless you pay. Now excuse me, I need to go to trade this piece of crap in to pre-order Batman:AK

    Evolve is simply a hit and miss having played the game for hours I can see where the developers wanted to go with the game but unfortunatelyEvolve is simply a hit and miss having played the game for hours I can see where the developers wanted to go with the game but unfortunately they fell just short of making this game a success.

    If you go and play the game solo you will soon find being bored and running around in little circle and going nuts simply because the game gets repetitive very quickly and soon you will establish this game is not one to play solo.

    As for the multiplayer aspect it adds a bit of fun but just like the solo experience the multilayer experience gets boring and repetitive very quickly as there are a limited amount of maps allowing for a minimal amount of things to do.

    Evolve at the end of the day ends up as a mediocre with a mediocre score the game simply is more of a miss than a hit and it could have done with more time in development
