Evolve Review: Monster Madness, Multiplayer Masterpiece

Full review available here.

Every once in a while, a game will come along where the pricing, marketing and pre-release news surrounding it will overshadow the quality of the game itself. Despite the best intentions of Turtle Rock Studios (the developer of the Left 4 Dead games), Evolve is destined to remain controversial for all the wrong reasons. Your ability to enjoy this game will depend on whether you’re willing to put up with the reviled shenanigans of it’s publisher. Buried underneath the mess of pre-order bonuses and day-one DLC, Evolve is a masterfully crafted online experience.

Evolve Beta Impressions

In a previous article about the Evolve Alpha, I said that this game was worth playing. After playing 7 hours of the Evolve Beta, I can safely say that I will be buying this game when it releases.

Evolve Big Alpha Impressions

After playing the Evolve Alpha for ten hours the word I keep coming back to is different. Yes, Evolveis a shooter, but it’s a different kind of shooter. It’s not just a multiplayer game, it’s a different kind of multiplayer game; an asymetrical online-only 4 vs 1 class-based shooter to be exact. Different can mean many things and the split between a game being unique and a game being weird is measured by quality. I can safely say that Evolve is a unique game.
