I loved this game, it was tons of fun. I remember hearing bad things about it, but to be honest, I don’t pay that much attention to the bullshit that get’s spread around the internet. So I watched some let’s play videos of Evolve and decided to give it a try. I bought the $100 monster race edition and boy, did I get my money’s worth. I was paying a monthly subscription fee for EVE Online at the time and by comparison, Evolve just delivered what I wanted. The action, the strategy, the competition, the feeling of being in control of a huge titan beast - it felt great.
But then why did the game die so fast? Didn’t anyone else think it was a great game? Why did they leave?
Surely there’s something to be learned from this. Surely the devs have learned some lessons that they can use in future games. I certainly didn’t expect the playerbase on PC to be bobbing between 60 and 300 at the beginning of May. I could be wrong here, but I think the Developers weren’t expecting this either.
