A Week With Evolve

After spending a week with Turtle Rock’s new assymetrical multiplayer game, Evolve, I thought it might be interesting to share some quick, candid thoughts about the game rather than try to write up a review 2 weeks late.  Most of my time has been spent playing as a hunter, rather than a monster.  This is by choice as I find that side of the game to be more interesting.  Nearly all of my games have been online, I have played a mixed bag of games with and without friends, and I am playing on the PS4.  Without further ado let’s get cracking.
