      One of the best multiplayer titles available today

      Evolve has been on my radar since it was bought up by 2K after THQ went bankrupt. 2K paid big money for the game and it's dev, Turtle Rock Studios, and that money was well spent. Evolve proves to be one of the best and most balanced multiplayer games I've ever played. The basic game mode is four hunters chasing and trying to kill one monster before it can evolve enough to kill them. This creates a fantastic game of cat and mouse that we haven't seen in a game before. There are four classes and each one feels increibly unique and useful. Each of these four classes has three hunters you can unlock inside of it, so there's plenty to play toward. The one things this game lacks is a wide variety of things to do (which is why I didn't give it a five star rating). Hunt is the basic gamemode, and the other two just feel tacked on. their all good, but lack anything to make themselves feel different. On the brightside, every match of Evolve feels unique. the dynamic from pairing together various monsters and hunters on each map keeps things feeling fresh every round. Bottom line: If you're looking for a great multiplayer game to play with your firends, Evolve is for you. It's incredibly balanced, very compettive, and a ton of fun.

      Co-op gaming evolved!

      If you have played the Left 4 Dead series before, then I would highly recommend getting this game. Evolve is from the same developers as the Left 4 Dead series, and they have achieved the next level in co-op gaming. Actually, this game really feels like two separate games. One side is being part of a team of hunters and achieving the satisfaction of tracking down the monster and killing it. The other side is playing as the monster, which can really get your heart pounding if you have a good team of hunters going after you. One downside I will say is at the beginning you will probably loose most of your matches while playing online. So that can be discouraging. Especially if you play as a hunter and other members of your team don't know how to play their roles. It's easier to win early on as the monster because you only have to depend on your own skill. But if you keep at it, you can have one of the best gaming experiences out there regardless of being a hunter or monster. It's hard trying to describe in words how great this game CAN be. So if you're on the fence, look up some gameplay videos.

      Great Game play... Lots of micro transactions.

      So this game is honestly a blast to play. However there is very little free in game progression. Most everything in this game is unlocked via promo codes or through in game package purchases. these packages aren't really cheap though, they are typically around >$10 depending on what you are looking to unlock. There are a lot of unique characters and roles to fill within the game but most of them are locked behind the wall of micro transactions... It's really a fun game to play though, It's immersive and a great team cooperative if you have a crew who can work well together.

      I'm enjoying Evolve quite a bit. Fans of Left 4 Dead will love it, and feel almost right at home. It's a lot like the last map of a L4D game, just in a much, much bigger setting. The game feels pretty streamlined; quick to get into matches, and little downtime between them, so you can pick it up and play for 15 minutes, or hours if you choose to. I do feel like $60 is a bit high, though, considering it's really just a multiplayer game (the solo/single player game is just the multiplayer game with bots.)

      Great Concept, but still not a great game

      Evolve promises to be the new left for dead, but it lacks an enjoyable implementation. I played it for some time before uninstalling it. The FPS and fighting engine just seems too over baring and while a lot great graphics went into the game it still. Doesn't deliver an enjoyable level of playability.The pay to upgrade after I've already payed for the game just is not appealing. I would not recommend the game, however I do like the concept,

      The game is graphically beautiful and pleasing. The hunters must work as a team to bring down the solo player monster. Its refreshing to have a game centered and value placed on teamwork and communication. People are complaining about large amount of "dlc" however, about 80% of it are cosmetic skins for weapons and monsters. Which has it in line with all the other games that feature micro transactions. I give it a 9 out of 10!

      I was not expecting the game to be linked to STEAM, a gamer's support site. I have never had any good experiences with STEAM and do not like that i had to load 4 disks onto my computer only to be redirected to that site to play it. I still haven't played it due to not being able to navigate the sites requirements to activate it. I liked it better when you could load a game and go. that's it.

      A Bit Over-hyped

      I was really excited for this game, but once a few friends and I started playing, we realized it didn't offer anything too unique or revolutionary. The gameplay itself is still and entertaining, but the promo material that lead up to it's release would've had you thinking the game would somehow change your gaming life (hint: probably not). Ultimately, the game is still a good time, just maybe not for it's current full retail price.
