    The Storm came without warning and wiped out 98 percent of the world's population in a flash. Poof. Adios. Sayonara. 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, weve 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.

    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.

    Regardless of its flaws, Fortnite is a seriously fun co-op experience that most will want to spend hours playing. There’s plenty of content, the gunplay is satisfying, and it runs well on the hardware as long as you’re comfortable playing at 30 FPS. I would love to see models added to the first-person viewpoint in the future, but even without that you’re still left with an impressive and expansive game comparable to the Horde mode from Gears of War that I’ve always loved. Based on this alone, I’d say Fortnite is well worth your time.

    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.

    A funny and entertaining mix of different genres, spanning from third person action-shooter to RPG to crafting/building mechanics. It's already got lots of contents even if in early access, but it's a bit too heavy in the farming/grinding side, with players that often ignore the action for tens of minutes to go harvesting materials.

    If you have friends to play with and want to devote a good chunk of time into it, Fortnite can showcase a lot of entertaining times with some great teamwork and cooperative builds. As it stands right now though, I think gamers should wait a little while and see what gets added, changed and tweaked. Maybe by then there will be some more variety added to spruce up the tired repetitive gameplay and it will be more of a game that will make a more positive impression on those who play it.

This allows for "Fortnite" to have a very competitive scene and a very casual one. The in game mechanics are simple and easy to use. The building mechanic is the interesting one. It's simple to use and great for getting out of sticky situations, it also allows for some pretty epic build battles. The fast pace game-play and unique concept makes "Fortnite" one of the best games out. That's why I give "Fortnite" a perfect 10/10 score. Expand

Takes a little getting used to if you aren't used to playing 3rd person shooters but that is an easy adjustment. The game can get repetitive especially if you are playing solo. The ability to pair up with friends is what makes the game more fun. Biggest complaint that I had was about the building structures not showing up as what I had selected but that was fixed in the recent patches that were released. Which is actually another issue that is going on, there have been patches and updates at least once a week, with the servers going down relatively often as well. Once the game is more stable and out longer I'm sure the servers will get stronger and make the game play flow much smoother, based upon your internet connection as well. Expand

    There´s a reason why Fortnite still has that many active players. It´s a funny game, only the art style is a bit childish.

Controls layout is awful for a console game, game is filled with mictrotransactions, helped pushed out the mediocre battle royale craze, etc. The only good thing this game has done is help create Epic Store (thereby ending Steam's monopoly), emote dances and memes.

    I went off this game after season 7. If you are looking for a battle royal then get call of duty warzone. It is FREE and is a much better game.

You spend 25 minutes gather garbage weapons and materials, then some loser who doesn't do anything with their lives, snipes you from across the level and you're dead. Good idea, bad execution.
    Oh and great job Epic games for teaching little children that killing and violence is a good thing. Not kid friendly.

    Avoid, much better FPS available. I've also seen some offensive ID's, doesn't seem like devs are doing much about that either.
