    Addictive and accessible, PUBG is a great game for PS4.

    PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds manages to differentiate itself from its battle royale progeny with its more tactical spin on the formula, even with its obvious lack of presentational prowess. While its grounded approach can be brutal at first, if you take the time to immerse yourself in its stress inducing battles, you’ll find yourself involved in epic engagements that will have you sharing your successes – and failures – with anyone willing to listen. It may not be the king anymore, but PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds still more than deserves a place at the top table.

    In the face of quicker, louder rivals, PUBG offers a slow and meditative experience. It’s not, I would imagine, unlike sitting in a deer blind waiting for an unlucky whitetail to pass below. While PUBG’s technical issues are ever-present, they rarely spoil this core experience. This is a buggy game, but they aren’t game breaking bugs.

    Though ironically beaten to the punch by the likes of H1Z1 and Call of Duty, and tarnished by a handful of shortcomings, PUBG nonetheless remains a commendably inventive and expansive shooter that deftly embodies the Battle Royale genre.

    There is a whole generation of PS4 owners who are probably way too deep into Fortnite, with that game being their first exposure to the genre. While I wouldn’t count myself amongst them, I cannot imagine that any of those people would choose this $30 experience, with little promise to grow and improve, over triple-A titles that have since leapfrogged over PUBG.

    A no-thrills PlayStation 4 port that has most of what you’d want from PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds but in a much uglier, watered down package.
  7. 50
    At its core, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds relies on the unpredictability of players to help provide the variety, and that is not a bad way to go. Still, I would really like to see the technical issues smoothed out and more variety in the form of maps added to help make PUBG's a better overall experience.

Technical and slow-paced, it takes time to get used to your survival mechanics. But after the first victory you can't stop playing. Technically fulfilled but not the best. Its gameplay is a recycling of several market shooter. What makes the game really special is the feeling of the cat and the mouse in the games which makes it the best Battle royale on the market.

    Played for around a month and it still has me hooked. I play solo, duos and squads and find the game be very enjoyable. I have had no crashesPlayed for around a month and it still has me hooked. I play solo, duos and squads and find the game be very enjoyable. I have had no crashes or problems except once I did fall through the map. But I can forgive that. PUBG in my honest opinion, is the most realistic and enjoyable battle royal out. I tried Blackout on call of duty and did not find it to be anywhere near as enjoyable as this. Expand

    Giving PUBG a 6 (well, 5.5) because I knew what it was going in: unpolished, glitchy, poor graphics and texture, poor gameplay. Anyone whoGiving PUBG a 6 (well, 5.5) because I knew what it was going in: unpolished, glitchy, poor graphics and texture, poor gameplay. Anyone who picked up this game expecting different just hasn't done their research on the game or watched any gameplay on YouTube. PUBG is not supposed to be about AAA aesthetics. Yes, the game sucks. Yes, I get killed very frequently and it gets frustrating with a K/D of only 0.15. This game has made me want to throw my controller several times, the mark of a truly special game.
    But it's still fun AF and addictive. The more kills you get, the more you want to play. Dune buggies, vehicle kills, frying pans, weapon attachments, parachuting on top of other players, that's what PUBG is supposed to be about. Never before have I sucked so bad at such an ugly game, but playing more matches is all i can think about! This game is probably ideal for people with addictive personalities. Keep your expectations in check and just enjoy the game for what it is.
