PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is battle-royale shooter made only for the multiplayer experience. Players should do their best to become the last one alive. Matches are held on 3 main maps of a large size (Erangel, Miramar, and Sanhok). Each match has 100 participants fighting for themselves. The battle begins with players making the leap out of the plane to spread out across the map and to gather all possible equipment required for survival. Then, after a while, game intelligence randomly sets a circle shape safe zone, which gamers must reach to stay alive, and marks it on the map. Gear and resources are scattered throughout the map, so players can grab everything they need while running to the zone. Therefore, the main action comes out of the players’ collision on their ways to the circle. You can join the fight either alone or in a team (up to 4 people). Due to the customization system, lots of clothing items and weapon skins could be both bought on the marketplace and found in crates. However, in-app purchases don’t actually affect the gameplay.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds reviews and comments
All in all, PUBG is a good game, but not one I would throw my money on. I only bought it because my friends bought it, I’m not a big fan of battle Royale genre.
I loved the idea of this game and the more tactical sense to a BR mode, but this game has to be the game I’ve gotten the most mad at in the last 5 years. I have never been an angry gamer. I don’t blame lag, I don’t get upset. I’m usually very good and when I lose it doesn’t frustrate me too much. This game made me lose my cool many times. I played it right at console launch and it did not feel very good. The movement and shooting always felt slidy to me. This was frustrating. I’ve played a few rounds since and it’s much much better now but too little too late. Also, this game was the worst for looting and running around for 20 minutes and then getting killed by someone I didn’t see. If that happens enough you start to get angry. The other problem was when I had a good game it was an absolute blast. So I kept trying to have that type of game again but they were too few and far between. Even though I’ve mostly mentioned negative things I kept playing this game so I obviously had fun and saw the potential it had. I just honestly wished I was better when it came out.
Series X Replay:
It is smoother. I can actually shoot this time around. That’s nicer. But I still think this game suffers from too large a map. There isn’t enough conflict. I want to use these tactical guns there just isn’t enough opportunity.
I decided to switch it up and play squads instead of solo. Very first game I got 9 kills and we came second. My most enjoyable game by a mile. Second game I got 7 kills... this is way more fun. Third game I WON with 5 kills and it was just me and one other guy. I can’t believe how much better I’ve been in squads. FOURTH GAME I ALSO WON! 4 kills, I played with the same guy as the previous round. Squads is so much better. Night and day difference. Fifth game I died early. Damn. Had a few more rounds then I won again with 8 kills 4 assists. Three wins on the first night of giving squads a go.
The next day I won 6/8 games... and one of the games I lost my own teammate killed me for no reason. There are clearly too many bots.
It has been fun getting a ton of kills and wins but honestly it feels way too full of bots. I’m now expecting to win every game. I’m switching to ranked. There’s no bots in ranked.
This game is supposed to be this tactical military shooter and in some regards it is but also it’s a legitimate strategy to drive 4 people around in a sedan shooting out the windows.
Fuck me the people in ranked are so much better. Everyone is a level 400 or 500. It’s back to the classic loot for 10 or 15 and get smoked. I wish social had less bots so I could still enjoy playing in a less serious game mode.
Had like 5 games in a row where after looting and having a great set up I die because teammates love driving around and we get shot up and never even get the opportunity to return fire. Frustrating.
I find myself not having fun with ranked. It takes a lot of patience and honestly it’s too much camping once again. People get score based on survival time so there is so much camping. I switched back to normal solos because I find there are less bots and it was a bit better but I’m remembering why I kind of hate this game. It is frustrating.
I think I actually prefer casual squads because of the bots... and I hate that I do but I just have more fun. You get a couple human firefights but then just get practice aiming these weird fucking guns. The wins aren’t that satisfying but the game is more enjoyable. I spent all morning in ranked and hated it.
I’ve found my favourite mode. It’s 1 man squad in normal. There are still too many bots but you can tell when it’s a real squad by how they move. I single handedly killed 3 real people. The last guy fled on a bike and I sniped him. It was pretty cool. I won the game later also.
If I was to rescore this game it would be a B+. I’m leaving it where it’s at because when it came out it was an A- due to the lack of other better BRs. Which is weird because it actually does play better now than before.
Yup normal 1 man squad is the best. Just had my best game ever. 15 kills but at least 10 were real people. I single handedly took out a squad of 4. I killed a squad of 2 with back to back sniper headshots. I got a Molotov kill on a real person. It was such a good game. I was king of the scrubs and that’s what I like. I’m not wasting anymore time with ranked. It’s not worth it. I don’t have fun and I don’t plan to play this much longer so I don’t care about climbing the ranks.
Squad hunter. That’s how I treat 1 man squads. I have a handful of bots encounters to keep the round more engaging and when I hear sustained fire or see a group of 2 or more people I know that they are real and the hunt is on. It’s hard getting wins at the end since I pretty much always need to take out at least one squad so there is more excitement than when I have teammates, it’s also less frustrating.
Final Score: A-
