Fortnite is a mix of many game genres for different games lovers. Here you can find a team of four players who save the world from zombies. And the opportunity to build a fort for the mission itself. Here you will discover fortifications, traps and other elements of the tower defense. This is a shooter and an opportunity for crafting at the same time. In Fortnite, it seems, you can do almost anything.
Graphics — 5/5
Visually, Fortnite came out very nice, with Pixar graphics, good humor and without bloodshed, so popular in cooperative games. The game appearance may seem a bit schematic, but when you start examining details, you notice a great environment like a training polygon and an island you’re situated on. They are detailed and well-drawn. You will see how the weather and time of day are changing, how the landscape is realistic with 3D, and so on.
Gameplay — 4.5/5
The plot of the game tells about the invasion of zombie-like creatures in the world of people. And it is you who need to save the survivors. You will command the headquarters of the rescue forces and coordinate all operations.
Structurally, the game is divided into two parts. The first is preparation and construction; the second is war. First, you extract resources, sorting out everything that comes by the hand of a pickaxe. In the course goes almost everything: from the car to the whole house together with the concrete footpath. Of course, rare resources fall out only from certain things, and you will have to search for some of them for a long time. In the three-dimensional menu, the game will tell you where to go for the best, but their exact location and type of production will often have to be looked for and memorized on their own.
In the second part of the game, there would often appear a necessity to use cold steel like swords, batons and other attributes of war. But the weapon wears out and can break down for a couple of missions of active use. Drawings of new weapons can be obtained for the performance of missions. Each can be improved by the corresponding boosters that can be received in missions or bought in the game store.
Controls — 4.5/5
Fortnite supports all types of control devices. You can play with a mouse or keyboard or gamepad if you have once connected.
Playing on PC gets both keyboard and mouse involved, they’re not interchangeable. You can use a mouse for camera movement and shooting, with your keyboard you can do the rest. All the needed hotkeys you can find in the Settings tab and change got your convenience as well.
Replay Value — 4.5/5
Developers from Epic Games managed to find an amazing balance between finding resources, building and shooting at the walking dead. Pleasant cartoon graphics based on the engine Unreal Engine 4 and an impressive amount of content do their best to capture the player quickly. So it would be extremely difficult to break away from it.
Fortnite is a perfect mix of shooter and builder. It captures you with its graphics and exciting gameplay. Nevertheless, it is trying to seem more complicated than it really is. Some disadvantages are also present. An overloaded and confusing interface is the thing that can distract an inexperienced player.
Fortnite connects the opposites: creative and destructive activities are both here. If you like to think through various strategies and tactics, then you must definitely try it.
