I’ll keep this short and sweet but hope it will illicit some discussion.
Having read a mixture of reviews for the BETA version of EVOLVE, I’ve noticed the following trend:
those who tended to the negative have experienced more public game play; stating issues like boredom, repetitiveness and lack of cohesion as their gripes.
While those with more positive tended to have had more game play in groups of friends when hunting, stating thrill of the chase, tactical decisions and stratagizing as all things they’ve particularly enjoyed.
Now guys, I hate to tell you this but these view points are not mutually exclusive; both hold some merit and having experienced a lot of one end of the spectrum and not the other does not make the opposing view point invalid.
I believe that the Users experience of the game is greatly affected by the company they keep and most of the gripes (and praise in some cases) is actually down to the team you play with.
TRS have given us a playground full of toys to play with. Who we chose to play with and use these toys is down to us as players.
