Angry Joe is a very well known video game critic. He has some of the most brutally honest reviews that his particular is not known for. This post is to clear a few things up that he could not have possibly reviewed properly.
Firstly, the running around the map aimlessly is the part of the game that is controlled by the hunters. Sure if the monster is bad, you will surely catch it quickly. However, if the monster is good, he will juke you to the ends of the earth if you let him. The skill of the hunters determine the length of any given chase, as well as the success or failure of the chase.
Secondly, Joe’s complaints about the gameplay of evolve follow the general outlook of everyone who isn’t particularly good at this game. The amount of time it would take to become strategically good at this game is quite a bit of time. It’s most definitely longer than I would like to admit. That being said, he’s still not wrong about the repetition in the matches. This is still a skill problem in terms of the hunters.
Now for the dlc. This one is very simple. If you want it, buy it. It provides no strategic or tactical advantage whatsoever. Though the monster skins can be used as a sort of camo, none of it is necessary to enjoy the game to its fullest extent. If you don’t want it, don’t buy it. It’s just that simple.
As for the campaign, sure they could have put one in I think. But riddle me this, when would it ever be enough? You want all the personal stories of the characters and the monsters. They can not be summed up in a single mission. It would take an entire campaign to write these elaborate character’s stories. So as it stands it would take 12 to 15 campaigns to get everyone up to speed. It is not practical to do this because that would be way to costly and waste to much man hours to achieve effectively.
In summary, Angry Joe is 100% correct with his review from his pov. But perspective is relative to the skill of hunters and monster alike. I would not dare call this game noon friendly. The community will shun you faster than you can call in an orbital. Looking at you new hank players. You can agree with Joe because he is right. The game lacks content, drive, and story. But what he’s wrong about is that it’s your average game. This game will give you as much as you give it. With time, your experiences will get better if you’re willing to learn and practice.
Good day and happy hunting.
