Then came the monsters, wave after wave, night after night. Destroying everything in their path. But it's not all doom and gloom. In an abandoned missile silo, we've found one of our first weapons against the Storm you. We're looking for a few good commanders like you to help make a difference, push back the storm and protect those among us who are unable to protect themselves. Explore the world. Rescue survivors. Make hundreds of guns, swords, and things that go boom. Make impregnable forts. Tastefully decorate with sniper perches, poison gas traps, and jump pads. Take back the world. You know, the usual. And be sure to invite your friends. Welcome to Fortnite. Expand

    Mastering Fortnite Battle Royale’s many systems is worth every second of investment. Whether you go it alone or queue up with a squad, even if you’re the first to die or you actually manage to earn the Victory Royale, Fortnite’s zany style and unique blend of shooting and building almost never offers anything less than an outstanding time. It may not be the first battle royale game, and it certainly won’t be the last, but Fortnite sets itself apart from the crowd by giving you the freedom and tools to express your own personal playstyle.

    If grinding for loot, shooting zombies, and building the coolest forts ever sounds like it’s up your alley, I can’t recommend Fortnite enough.

    Whether we're talking aesthetics or the accessibility of its gameplay, all is good for Fortnite, which provides a beautiful vision of what Battle Royale should be.

    Fortnite incorporates mechanics of survival, crafting and missions in waves. Everything is very well measured and addictive, but there are no surprises or innovation. The microtransactions come to break the balance, and you'll have to play too many hours to see your character really improve. It's better that you wait for the free-to-play version.

    The ultimate effort of the US home team is to combine the excellent experience of the third-person shooter with foundational elements of some of the most successful works of the last few years, in an effective and convincing manner, at least from the gambling point of view.

    Fortnite wants to cover more than it can. Its three pillars of action, construction and management are too independent. To make matters worse, it feels too focused on opening piñatas (chests) and pay-to-continue.

    Fortnite: Battle Royale is a fast-paced arcade alternative to PUBG, but it fails in the tension department. Its good fun when you play like you don’t only have one life, but that in and of itself makes it feel like an oddity that hasn’t quite found its identity yet.

    Ok, this game isn't perfect neither is any game during access. now from what I have seen from the game is Great, I have only played for aboutOk, this game isn't perfect neither is any game during access. now from what I have seen from the game is Great, I have only played for about 10 hours so I have not experienced the "Cash and Grab" Ideal but if you are looking for a game that is fun to play and don't care too much about getting mythic leads and legendary weapons Once in a while then buy it ! The gameplay is solid and there is always something to do you can grind resources find loot or just build a base . The base building is simple and hopefully, they fix it where I can actually defend my base other than running out and killing. Now I love the idea that when you use a schematic then it doesn't go forever perfect for grinding that legendary weapon you just got. grinding isn't horrible and at least there's an attempt at giving V-Bucks from quests that you can save to get Loot Lamas for deals that come out every day, there's no "you can only get deals during holidays " I really don't know the developers intention but I hope they fix the game to make it less a cash and grab hopefully they make it easier to pull epics on silvers and legendaries on any type of lamas . Remember this game is bought to play early so who knows what they will do next I hope it's an ESO type deal. Hope this review helps people decide if the game is worth the buy! Expand

It's fun for maybe an hour, but then gets so repetitive that I can't bring myself to play it anymore. There's not change to it. Same map, same guns, same average combat.
