Evolve is an action-packed multiplayer game that revolves around a monster and 4 hunters. It is a 4v1 game wherein you can choose to play as the monster or be a part of a team of hunters.
Graphics — 5/5
Graphics are a strong point for Evolve, just like most of the other aspects of the game. The various maps, environments, characters, animals, vehicles, landscape, and more just come to life in this game. Every action played out looks and sounds realistic from smashing trees to jumping across rock faces and more. While all the characters do look animated, the detailing in them really makes Evolve one of the best looking games online.
Gameplay — 5/5
In Evolve, you get to choose what you play as. If you choose to be a hunter, your mission is different and if you choose to be a monster, the mission varies again. There are a number of characters to choose from for both hunters and monsters so you will never face the same scenario twice.
When playing as a hunter, your goal is to track down and kill the rampaging monster along with three other hunters. You can select your weapons from a plethora of available options including tranquilizer guns, stun guns, bombs, and so much more. You have to be aware of your surroundings and watch for signs where the monster could be like trees falling or birds flying. As a monster, you can choose from a number of different creatures. Some are big and strong, while others are quick and small. You must kill and eat to evolve into something bigger and worse. Once you reach a point where you know you can beat the hunters, attack with a number of moves including melee, fire-breathing, throwing rocks, speed attack, and more. The last one standing is the winner.
Controls — 3.5/5
Evolve is quite a difficult game to master in terms of its controls. There are a lot of moves, combos, and actions to do during the game which require a good amount of skill, or at least experience, in similar games. When playing with the help of a keyboard and mouse, the controls are easily customizable to your liking. The arrow keys are usually used for moving the character while the mouse is used for direction and attacking or using items. You can also attach a compatible controller for easier gameplay.
Replay Value — 4/5
The action behind Evolve and the overall intensity the game brings to the table makes it a huge hit. The multiplayer features it offers is another major reason for its success. By getting to choose the character you play as makes it an advantage for those players looking for more than just another shooter game. Evolve is both challenging and extremely addictive which has made it increasingly popular around the world.
While there are a number of multiplayer shooter games out there, none quite come as close to being the best as does Evolve. Very rarely will you find a 4v1 multiplayer game that delivers so much action and balance to all players. It is an adrenaline pumping title that, at the very least, should be played once to truly understand what the game has to offer. Monster or hunter, you will always find yourself in the heart of the action with Evolve.
Evolve is definitely one of the best multiplayer shooter games available and it is a must-have for all action enthusiasts.
