Has anyone here played the Evolve beta yet? What were your impressions of the game?!

Tried a couple of rounds and I got bored fairly quickly.

I don't know, seems like Titanfall where it could be very fun for a while but can get boring fast.

Its in Alpha, not beta.

I think the matches need a bit more structure, you just run around and look for the monster and then shoot at it. Fighting the monster can be fun if the person playing it know what he is doing but its too simplistic. There needs to be more objectives or some kind of progression through the level where the monster has to stop the players.

mission objectives while needing to take down the monster would be nice.

Fucking amazing. Obviously I have a couple of gripes(there should be a system to switch classes with a friend, there's a stuttering issue) but they're minor.

I absolutely love this game and I think they're going to do extremely well with it.

Seems like a game that will get old pretty quickly.

it is. gets old after about 10 hours of playtime.

once you realize it is literally the exact same match every time you play.... the "wow" wears off. hunters spend the entire match chasing, monster spends the entire match running away. briefly broken up by the hunters catching the monster in an arena and the monster frantically trying to avoid damage. that is literally every match. the only time it gets interesting at all is once the monster hits lvl 3 and can actually fight back. before then the monster is so weak that if it gets caught it is pretty much dead.

Out of curiosity, the people that have played it and say it gets boring quickly......did you get bored of L4D quickly as well?

I put about 400 hours into L4D2 (mostly versus) so that would be a no.

Maybe it'll be like L4D where the first game is a bit lean and then the sequel takes better advantage of the concept.

Makes me wish they did a new AvP where it's an asymmetrical match of marines versus aliens and predators. Now that would be cool. Not a huge fan of the concept of Evolve.

I didn't think it got that boring. But maybe because I was playing with friends and we were constantly trying to change things up, one up each other, work tactically, etc.

I can only imagine how much more exciting it's going to be when I can play as the Kraken and the other hunters. I do love the Goliath, though.
