I wanted to start a topic where we could discuss some of the amazeballs coverage coming out around Evolve. Below is a list of my favorite quotes from some of today’s coverage (along with some pictures, because our game is pretty). Please feel free to respond below with thoughts, comments, or things you read that got you excited about the game!
“Evolve instantly feels fresh – way more interesting, lively, and exciting than many of its rivals currently clogging up consoles and PCs.”
“Sporting a fedora decorated by a row of fearsome teeth, [Griffin] certainly looks the part – a mix of Robert Muldoon, Crocodile Dundee, and a Victorian explorer (he already has a decent claim for the most impressive moustache of 2014).”
“The monster is tough, and brutal, yet elegant.”
“Big critters can also be useful as foils against those humans dim enough to get lost in swamps and river beds. Carnivorous plants await the unwary.”
“You’ll want to stick together, communicate, and really pay attention to all the visual clues to track the monster down.”
“If next-gen multiplayer games want to entice new players with this sort of asymmetrical design and smart cooperative gameplay, sign me up.”
“The monster can snatch victory from the jaws of his teeth really quickly or the team can get a victory at the last second, there’s a lot of moving parts that make it interesting. Also, I think it’s just a fun shooter in general”
“As I started moving, I couldn’t shake a feeling of fear as I was being stalked even though I was a very powerful creature. That sense of dread is something you don’t feel in a lot of video games, and it’s even worse because you know that those chasing after you are smart.”
“Any preview that leaves me wanting to play more is a pretty good foot forward…it’s a fun game with a killer premise and they’ve executed perfectly on the central idea.
