I love the character design, there is not a single faut pas in the whole hunter / monster line-up.
I love the design of the menues and the gritty, Terminator-2-inspired atmosphere of the game.
I love the genuine joy And anticipation I feel before a match, because every session is unique and every combination of hunters/monster sets the stage.
I love the fact that I want to play this game because it is FUN, not because it offers a thousand rewards and makes noob players feel empowered. It offers nothing but fun for those who are 100% invested in the idea of playing one specific and complementary role, and one role only.
When I was playing L4D2 I knew Turtlerock got it figured out, making intelligent games with high quality writing to each character. Storytelling focusng on setting and delivery of stories via oral tradition.
Evolve is a consequent next step in the right direction.
