PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds review

Original Review:
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-

i enjoy to walk for 30 min and then die in 3 seconds from a sniper shot
To each his own. Tactical shooter or survival game? Neither. Every map I wandered through gave me a bunch of positive emotions. Above all, it was interesting. What's worth the map «Dobro Mesto», which looks like an Eastern European city with its surroundings. Of course, everyone will find something different, but for me, first of all, it is an exploration!

PUBG. If I were to describe this game, it would be a slow paced Dayz shooter vibe game, or well, those were my first opinions on the game. Honestly, if you wanna just go on ahead and buy the game then do it, there is nothing wrong with it. I mean it’s really hard to describe battle royal games since well, they really just depend on whether your good at the game, and whether you feel like it’s the right choice. The only thing I can talk about is that the game actually runs smoothly with good graphics.But... DO NOT GET THE XBOX VERSION I REPEAT DO NOT GET THE XBOX VERSION. I have played the Xbox version and trust me when I say this, you are better off getting the mobile version than the Xbox version. The Xbox version is just complete shit, with buggy textures, crappy servers, and crappy shaders. Literally whenever you spawn, sometimes you can’t even see the buildings properly, or see them at all. I don’t know how well it runs on the Xbox One X version tho.

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.
Never realy liked multiplayer or competitive games, but this one is perfect for me. The progression, the adrenaline rush of a a top5 situation, the learining curve of the gunplay and each and every game/circle/situation is a different, epic story. Paying mostly duos with my friend, but sometimes solo and 3-man-squad and each mode is wastly different.

Servus, have now played a bit OF PUBG AND feel compelled to say something about this Game. This is my Perspective, don't feel attacked and if you want to make constructive Criticisms, or have the Urge to discuss with me and possibly others, then don't be shy and do it! (As long as it remains factual and informative, insulation/incitement will be deleted!) In the Beginning, I present the positive and negative Aspects of the Game for me, followed by a (hopefully) brief conclusion and, at the End, personal Wishes for future Updates. + Weapons: Wide Range of Weapons, all of which can be very strong based on different Scenarios. + Map: Nice big, many Cities with Loot and possible City battles (smaller Map even on the way as I heard, GJ!) + School: Action. Action. Action. + Duo/Squad: Revive possible, not like in H1Z1. (If the Opponents do not finise an equal) + 2Seat Motorcycle: Just horny the Part-fast, agile, small. < 3-Vehicle physics: Touch a Stone easily and your Car makes four Flips and it explodes. Touch another moving Vehicle and both explode almost immediately. -Community: If you have activated the Voice Chat (why ever), then you meet 3 types of people: 1. Vollidiotes Spamming through just any shit (Music, funny Noises, Sayings, etc.) 2. Toxic Kids who start the Mothers of other Players in each one At every death To abuse their conceivable Position. 3. "Normalos," who, in the event of an "Exciting" exchange of gunfire (whether Victory or Defeat), blow out a short GG WP AND then fragrance. (These are unfortunately very very rare, most Players are more likely to belong to the 1st and 2nd Variety)-Loot Distribution: I already understand why the Loot is randomly distributed. But the Distribution is for the most Part unfortunately for ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ An AKM etc. comes by and executes one. (Or if you have to run to the Zone and you can't find a single Car along the Way, while in another Area 10 Vehicles are parted side by side ... Feelsgoodman). -The Zone: I HASSE THE current Zone structure. The first Zones usually don't matter relatively. You hardly have any Problems getting in there in time (isn't that bad anyway if you spend the first 2 Zones, just drink Energy and go through it, the Damage is not too high yet). In the Midgame You can actually ignore them by playing well ... But in The Lategame .. Boah. It's very easy: Either the Zone is for one or against one. For the Most Part, the zone decides on Victory or Defeat in the End. I've already caught the worst Zones-Zone on the opposing Team, my Squad has to run over Open Field while the Containers had as Cover. No Chance if the Opponents are not complete AimkCriples. Or: Prison 1vs1, the Zone right on the Slope, one Player is up, the other Player is standing down and the Zone is narrowing down on one of the Two, so the Other has no Chance of getting there. Why not just take the Position Of all players from Top20 And calculate the Center so that the Zone pops up there? Maybe even from The top 10, but something has to be done! The Game has even more RNG than Hearthstone! +/-Bugs/Crashes: I understand that it is an Early Access Game and therefore usually will not be Bug-free. That is why I would like to look at this Point in a neutral way. The Game has some Bugs-Soundbug while diving, Pumping through unbroken Windows, Hanging With Parachute (so you're on the Ground a few Seconds later, Which could decide victory or Defeat in more active Dropareas), Random Crashes in The Loadscreen and Failure of the Reconnection due to any Error. I just hope that before the Game is released from Early Access and officially released, these Errors (and possibly others I forgot) will be fixed. Conclusion: Everything in one I am split two-The Game is already Fun (especially with Colleagues), but currently has too many Problems to give the Game a Thumbs up. BUT PUBG is definitely the best KotK Game and I am already looking forward to further Development. What I want: Improved physics, less RNG-improved Zone, better Optimization, more Weapons (Flamethrowers, Traps, Stumbling Wire etc., Bug Fixes, more Maps. I Am Sorry for the slightly longer text. Thanks for reading through and maybe you'll see yourself on the Battlefield soon!
Very good game

This game has its ups and downs as do all video games, however if you can get over the issues at hand and appreciate the game for what it really is, you will find yourself having a blast, especially if your playing with your homies. Overall I'd say this game is worth your money if you have it to spare. GLHF all and I'll see you in the battlegrounds!!!
