THE VIEW: From what we’ve seen of trailers & news Evolve’s looking pretty deserving of its four E3 awards, but will it deliver on next-gen gameplay? After seeing the hulking monsters that take centre stage, we think it will be a staple game for every PC, PS4 & Xbox One!
In Evolve XBOX One you are in a savage world of man vs nature, are you the hunter or the hunted?
The creators of Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios, bring you Evolve, the next-generation of multiplayer shooters where four hunters face-off against a single, player-controlled monster. Stalk your prey, execute your attack and prove you are the apex predator in adrenaline-pumping 4V1 matches.
4V1 – Grab three friends and hunt the monster or stalk the humans as the evolving beast. Whichever side you choose, you will have access to powerful weapons and abilities that deliver balanced, competitive gameplay.
Hunt Together or Die Alone – Choose a hunter that fits your play style. Whether you play as the Trapper, Support, Assault, or Medic, every role is vital and teamwork is key in surviving an encounter with the monster.
Beast of Prey – As the monster – the lone predator – you are the boss battle. Use savage abilities and an animalistic sense to wreak havoc, kill the humans and prove you are the dominant species.
Savage Planet - Neither flora nor fauna are friendly on planet Shear. Fall victim to natural hazards or use them strategically against your prey.
Character Customisation – Level up to unlock new upgrades, skins and perks for your favourite class: hunter or monster. Earn your infamy on the leaderboards and become the apex predator.
HUNT: Hunters are called in to eliminate a single Monster. The Monster flees, kills wildlife, and eats to gain energy and stage up. The Hunters aim to track, trap and kill the monster before it gets too big. The round ends when one team is eliminated, or the Monster evolves to Stage Three and destroys the power relay.
NEST: The Hunters have been called in to destroy Monster eggs that have been discovered in the area. The Alpha Monster must defend the eggs and can even hatch one to gain a Goliath minion to fight at its side. The round ends when one team is eliminated, or all of the eggs and minion are destroyed.
RESCUE: The Hunters are called in for a search and rescue mission. A Monster has attacked the facility and is still in the area, and groups of colonists have fled into the wilderness. Hunters need to locate, revive and lead each group of survivors to a rescue shuttle. The round ends when the majority of survivors have been either rescued or killed.
DEFEND: The transport ship is loaded with civilians and fueling up. A horde of Goliath minions led by a Stage 3 Alpha Monster attempts to destroy the fuel pad, which is protected by two reinforced walls, each powered by a generator. The hunters defend the generators and fuel pad until the ship

Personally I was expecting a lot more from this game than it delivered. I felt also a little insulted that the developers/publishers released so much Day One DLC, Seriously guys, I've bought the game, why withhold the content and charge me again?
Anyway my verdict for this is, though it is fun as the hunters/trappers if you have your mates on-line for co-op it is definitely not as fun as it sounds playing as the monster as it could have been, controls feel clumsy, game play is fairly formulaic feeling after a few play throughs and strategy unless you are playing on-line with your friends who have their mics switched on is practically non existent.
A short lived experience let down by bad controls and poorly considered DLC. Ok for Co-Op with people your on-line buddies, poor solo experience generally and not as good as the trailer wants you to believe.

Loved the alpha. I think it'll surprise a lot of folk who give it more than an hour. I think the progression, large maps, and depth of experience will hook a lot of people. It has that L4D magic, especially in the third act, level 3 monster end-game, and random alien flora & fauna encounters, but feels like a cross between Avatar and Team Fortress. The beta is all around better and more engaging than the alpha. I think Evolve will have long legs. Its super polished/optimised/solid

I have played the beta and I have reached stage 3 monster with the Goliath and I have literally gone on a rampage! It is so much fun to be a hulking Godzilla monster and to just wreck a whole team. From what I have played of this game it is really fun, challenging, adrenaline pumping and a great laugh to play with friends.
