    That’s one of the best things about Fortnite: It always keeps things simple.

    Fortnite is an ever-shifting entity, but strong footing has solidified it as a verified phenomenon with fast, fun gameplay and ubiquitous reach. Anyone can play it and have a great time, and although Save the World might get grindy and shotgun climb-and-dives might get a little tiresome, there’s real magic here along with the promise of more in the months and years to come.

    Fortnite has almost perfected the Battle Royale concept and added a touch of its own.

    All in all, Fortnite is a game many people can look forward to playing for the foreseeable future. Epic Games’ persistence and commitment to community feedback, latched on with low PC requirements, creative gameplay, and a Free to Play model, have made it one of the most successful games on the market today. With updates almost every week, there are always new things to try for new or returning players alike.

    As the saying goes: It's easy to learn, hard to master. Although a few shortcomings in the map design eventually surface and fatigue in looting can set in, Fortnite rarely fails at challenging you in unexpected ways, resulting in something more than just another typical last-person-standing shooter.

    After I situated myself in the controls, leveling and managing my squads, and making my way through some missions, Fortnite works. Missions are fun and engaging, rewards are plentiful, and it feels good to shoot things. Replayability is there too, as the enemies and resources are randomly placed when you load a mission. Forntnite may be slightly repetitive at times, but is overall an enjoyable experience.

    Fortnite suffocates what could be an incredible tower defense game beneath the some of the most tangential, egregious, impersonal progression systems we’ve seen.

    Sure the game costs money now (if you want to support the development) and will be F2P when released AND it has microtransactions (that is notSure the game costs money now (if you want to support the development) and will be F2P when released AND it has microtransactions (that is not mandatory to pay for, and what other online game does not have that these days?). These two things DOES NOT make it a bad game like most of the reviews claims it to be.

    Imo this game is really fun to play with friends and there's not many bugs so far and alot of action.
    I like Orcs Must Die and Dungeon Defenders and this game is like them but more open world-ish.

    You have you homebase that you need to expand and defend, you play alot of missions to claim loot, weapons and crafting materials. And it's all Co-Op and all fun.

    To cut a long story short the game could get more and could be better if the only aim of EpicGames wasn't money. Should we nerf some weapons,To cut a long story short the game could get more and could be better if the only aim of EpicGames wasn't money. Should we nerf some weapons, fix bugs and upgrade the other weapons, that were the least used? No, no, no. New skins, custom skins for weapons and vehicles, new donation packs - this is what we want.

Its impossible to play though, i cant play because everytime some dude that already wasted 2000 hours in the game just kills me every single game. Has anyone ever thought about match making? People with the same skill competing each other to make things more interesting? Nah. The worst implementation a game like this could have, and the developers only think about adding skins, since that's what makes money. A disgracefull game. Expand

After almost 2 years of plaguing the gaming community and making billions of Dollars off of Micro transactions ist still an Early -Access-Game! Speaking of Micro transactions: They are some of the worst i have ever seen outside a not EA- or Activision-Game! I know a few People that spend over 200 € and left the game a few months ago, beeing ashmed of what they have done. I cant recommend this peace of data to you! Expand

    - Repetitive Grind
    -- Toxic community full of edgelord tweens
    -- Predatory micro transactions
    --- insane hacker problems

    One of the most cancerous games ever created, take everything cancerous from Overwatch and Pubg, add in predatory micro transactions and a completlely useless anti-cheat services and you basically have Fortnite, one of the most hacked games in existence, Epic Games basically has no control over the rampant amount of hacking, people stealing accounts or even resorting to identify theft to get access to accounts.

    I've known people who don't ever play the game to have hackers brute force their way into making accounts in order to hack the game, just because they have ego's and want to ruin the game for others, my account gets at least one or two "You recently tried to log in from a new device, browser, or location." email notifications per day on hackers attempting to infiltrate my account.
