With the constant disappointment I’ve had with games recently I can see why people have become bitter and cynical. I did the same with Sniper Elite 3 thinking it was going to be a boring, generic shooter with nothing but sniping. I mean fair does it was, but it was fun to play because I’d drastically lowered my expectations. Right now it’s far better for me to dread the upcoming release of a game and love it, than it is to be hyped and be disappointed. What sets Evolve apart from the games I’ve been disappointed like Ryse, Knack, Thief, Killzone, ESO, CoD: Ghosts, Battlefield 4 just to name a few? As far as I’m concerned, nothing. I’m not going to let the disappointment crush me like it did with those other titles. I want to like Evolve and sure I look forward to it, but I’m not leaping on the lovewagon and I’m not going to praise this game based on things I don’t entirely know.
But those who hate the game should ought to look at some more gameplay. Chances are most have only seen 3 videos at max including a trailer. If they read the forums, get involved with the dev discussions and whatnot, they might come to like it a lot more than they initially thought. I did, and I don’t regret coming here to see what others think of it.
