    The enormity of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' success will have surprised even its developers. This is a shooter that didn't invent the Battle Royale genre in gaming, but which certainly perfected it to the point that it found a massive, massive audience. With more than 30 million copies sold, PUBG is a bona fide phenomenon with an influence that will be felt in the industry for years to come.

    PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the most immersive, intense, adrenaline-pumping, winner-take-all shooter of its time. Ushering forth a new era of Battle Royale gameplay, its technical qualms are the only thing standing in the way of the path to near perfection in its gunplay and survival-first gameplay.

    PUBG lives up to its monstrously large reputation. [Issue#197, p.74]

    PUBG has managed to create experiences you can't find anywhere else (or at least, you couldn't). It needs to improve some aspects and polish some things to become a legend, but the foundations are already very, very good.

    For the time being, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds won - pun intended - the battle royale of battle royales. This new "gold rush" spawned a good number of decent titles, but the one created by Brendan Greene if by far the best and funniest to play (even if there's still room for improvement).

    Whether you play solo or in a group, successfully executing adaptive tactics to win intense, high-stakes firefights makes for an incredibly rewarding experience. Every player has unique stories of their most memorable matches, and even after hundreds of hours, PUBG continues to inspire rousing tales of victory and defeat.

    I have faith that with such a large following (and cash flow) the PUBG team will eventually get things squared away, but for now, this game still feels like it's in early access. However, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is an absolute blast to play and has a broad appeal that few other games can match. As long as you temper your expectations (and make sure you have a decent PC), then this is one of the top games of 2017 to check out.

    Best multiplay shooting game ever!
    Although this game still have bad optimization and server lag issues, It's getting better at every patch
    Best multiplay shooting game ever!
    Although this game still have bad optimization and server lag issues, It's getting better at every patch and even some bugs make my gameplay experience so fun.
    New desert map with parkour system on the test server is also amazing. Fancy graphic, better optimization, better game design.
    This game was great example of early access. And from today, this game is great example of new age multiplay shooting game.

    No, this game isn't buggy anymore, but there is some cheating still going on.... go figure... Lots of camping in solo, body armor teir 2 andNo, this game isn't buggy anymore, but there is some cheating still going on.... go figure... Lots of camping in solo, body armor teir 2 and up doesn't even slow bullet damage at all, There is so much server lag it infuriates me, wished I never purchased the game. Its not worth its 30$ price tag. Getting a weapon on Miramar to doing anything half the time is a joke. If you even get spotted for a second your dead. You can't really tell where the foot step sounds are coming from. Can't tell the direction your getting hit from. Time the second wave comes, over half the 100 people are down to 50 or less. Only way to do decently in this game is to play duo's or squads or else you not gonna make it very far. PUBG mobile for phone is the the better version of this game with better support and better servers. If you can stand how the graphics look they have a tencent gaming buddy emulator that lets you play it on pc. Its a lot more fun, You can actually get competitive it. Best thing about the mobile one its free!!!! Expand

    Well, the game concept is interesting and fresh. Optimization is poor and terrible! Developers are greedy and tricky. Hype is monstrous. IWell, the game concept is interesting and fresh. Optimization is poor and terrible! Developers are greedy and tricky. Hype is monstrous. I think this game deserves 6-6.5 in it's current state. But I want to balance pre-payed "official" reviews with zero and to slow down a hype-train. Maybe Ill change my mind later if the game become better optimized and polished. Expand
