- I found crafting to be extremely fun. They have done a great job of making crafting certain things feel different from other game’s that offer crafting experiences.
- The controls in the game feel absolutely great. Both the gunplay and movement feel super responsive and that remained the case throughout.
- The cartoon art style looks great. Everything about the game visually is packed full of detail and it fits the gameplay to perfection.
- If you like loot then Fortnite has you covered big time. The variation of loot the game offers you definitely keeps you coming back for more.
- The campaign offers a decent amount of variety and they manage to make each individual mission feel fresh and fun, which is great.
- I had some minor issues with the servers from time to time. My main problem is that when I was in some missions I did suffer with a great deal of lag.
- You have to invest in Micro-transactions to get the best rewards. If you don’t spend real money then you will find that the rewards you get are not very good.
All in all I was interested to see how Fortnite would play in its early development stages, and thankfully it plays pretty well. It already has quite a decent amount of polish and as each day passes I can see this game getting better and better, which is great. One of the most enjoyable aspects of the game is definitely the crafting. They have somehow managed to make the crafting elements feel unique, and the fun factor is very high when building. The controls are also a big plus in the game. They have managed to make the controls feel responsive throughout, and this is especially the case when it comes to the gunplay. Another thing the game boasts is that the replay value is quite high, and this is mainly down to the loot the game offers you. The game has a huge amount of loot for you to sink your teeth into, and each different piece of loot is very different from the other, which is great. Unfortunately the only problem is that in order to get the best rewards/loot then you will have to pay for it with real money. Micro-transactions are used quite a lot, so if you’re not a fan of this then it will frustrate you a great deal. The presentation side of the game holds up pretty well. The cartoon visuals look fresh and colourful and overall they do a great job of enhancing the gameplay. At the end of the day Fortnite is definitely of to a good start, and I can’t wait to see what improvements the game offers over time. Right now the game has a few niggling problems, but that doesn’t stop it from being fun. It’s a game that is definitely best enjoyed with friends, so I recommend you to wait until your friends purchase it until you purchase it. I’m really excited to see where my adventure goes with Fortnite.
I rate Fortnite 8/10.
