Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds pubg Review

PUBG honest review. Battlegrounds is imperfectly perfect

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, known as PUBG (pronounced pub-gee), is if nothing else conceptually effective. 100 players parachute to the island and the last man standing wins. An unoriginal idea, executed in an original manner: it is the merit of Battlegrounds.

COMPARED TO ITS PREDECESSORS, BATTLEGROUNDS IS REFRESHINGLY ACCESSIBLE:

PUBG is the culmination of the years of genre experiments by designer Brendan “Playerunknown” Greene. When contemporaries polish the technical and graphical edges of an established formula, Greene refines the very formula. The game is aesthetically mild and prone to technical hiccups, but compared to its combat predecessors-Battlegrounds is soothingly accessible.

Beginners who do not religiously monitor the tendencies of video games can understand the beginning, middle, and end of their first match. Players float to the island, raid indefinitely Eastern European cities or dusty dilapidated forts for randomized equipment and remain within the electric blue circle that slowly compresses the map from miles of open terrain to one square foot, forcing all survivors to a limited safe space.

On the way to the center of the circle, the player eliminates competition – or allows him to fight with each other. Regardless of whether the player is shooting from a cliff, scanning houses with a shotgun or just hiding in a brush, the number of survivors is inevitably marked, as the blue circle pushes them to a giant garbage compactor of conflict.

A few hours in Battlegrounds, you get a hidden sensation that all, even the smallest details, have a purpose. For example, every door closes when the match begins, so the doors exist as doors, but when they are open, they also serve as a warning that you are not the first person to come to the house. Military bases and cities contain powerful weapons, but this attracts more players and, consequently, more conflicts. For some time, high-level players began to memorize the direction in which cars will stand by default, so they could tell an untapped car from a honeypot. The more you play, the more you learn to speak on Battlegrounds.

Flaws:

PUBG is just as good as his players:  the meek do not inherit their land. Worse, some players turned to hacks or controversial non-invasive tools and methods (stream-sniping, changing the color saturation) that provide a competitive advantage. Unfortunately, some headaches are associated with odd design decisions and fixed defects. The controls of the game do not have the smoothness of modern shooters, the collection of items feels unintentional, ammunition and information about weapons are blunt, and high-quality graphics actually serve as a disadvantage: low-level graphics settings remove bushes and other greenery players can use as a disguise.

There is a case where Battlegrounds is the defining game of 2017, which is one of the best games of the year. This is a bold multiplayer shooter, installed in the open world, similar to the bestselling franchise.

Great

Awesome game 1 of the most popular multiplayer game. Great graphics, great game physics and 1 of the best battle royale games ever made. It does need some improvements with the mechanics and all but the experience is worth it.
