    We are, after all, talking about a game that catapulted the battle royale genre from total obscurity into a genre that’s astronomically more popular than any other. A game doesn’t succeed in that without merit, and PUBG has it by offering a level of storytelling and gameplay intensity that is absolutely unmatched. PUBG is admittedly a game that’s poorly designed in many ways and sometimes even non-functional. It’s also admittedly one of the best gaming experiences I’ve ever had in my entire life.

    PUBG may have been sat in Preview for many a month, but it has arrived as a full release to instantly become one of the most addictive games you can play. From start to finish it’s a thrilling and fun adventure that has more tension than you’ll find in almost any other game. Whether you’re looking for a new online experience to play solo or with a group of friends, this is one you should be playing in 2018.

    Its unique brand of tense, realistic shooting mixed with slow-paced tactical combat manages to stay fresh and exciting even after hundreds of matches.

    A huge improvement on the Game Preview version PUBG confirms itself as the best Battle Royale game around, with very satisfying gameplay dynamics especially in team. It still needs a lot of optimization and polishing, but it definitely deserves a try.

    Still struggles with technical problems, but the gameplay is tight, tense and tactical. [Dec 2018, p.80]

    Despite its innumerable technical problems and its complex control, PUBG on Xbox One continues to provide the same unpredictable PC experience, now also with all the available content.

    PUBG 1.0 might have been released a bit too early and this choice hasn’t paid off when it comes to optimization. Regardless, for what matters (content), this release has a more mature structure that the developers will be able to enrich from time to time thanks to the events and the live component.

    I like the close to reality of the game over other competitors, at least in term of look!
    It will be perfect if it adds a train/tutorial

    Let me say this, it's a good battle royal game in it's core and more of a realistic approach, but what gets in it's way is horribleLet me say this, it's a good battle royal game in it's core and more of a realistic approach, but what gets in it's way is horrible optimization for a next gen console. Even if you play this game on the Xbox One X it still looks god awful. It's so slow paced and choppy that you can barley get kills. They have the nerve to say it's the full game when it still lags and is choppy. I play the game and I like it, but all the problems I just said make the game feel unplayable. Expand

    Far away from polished and playable. Game is lacking fun, has bugs, extremely bad graphics for a 2018 port. Overall it don't really deserve to exist.

    This game is a broken **** of a game that left a bad taste in my mouth. Never in my life have i wanted $30 back so badly. Every match i haveThis game is a broken **** of a game that left a bad taste in my mouth. Never in my life have i wanted $30 back so badly. Every match i have played in this game ends in either getting killed as soon as i land, getting killed by the "Network Lag Detected" screen popping up every 5 minuets, or staying alive most of the round not seeing anyone and collecting loot only to be shot in the back. If you ever want to feels like being killed over and over from the game's numerous problems or from a player you cant see, just pick up an overpriced copy of this poor excuse of a slapped together game. Bluehole, I hope you feel happy with disappointing and neglecting your game and community just to get more cash. Expand
