    Addictive and accessible, PUBG is a great game for PS4.

    PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds manages to differentiate itself from its battle royale progeny with its more tactical spin on the formula, even with its obvious lack of presentational prowess. While its grounded approach can be brutal at first, if you take the time to immerse yourself in its stress inducing battles, you’ll find yourself involved in epic engagements that will have you sharing your successes – and failures – with anyone willing to listen. It may not be the king anymore, but PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds still more than deserves a place at the top table.

    In the face of quicker, louder rivals, PUBG offers a slow and meditative experience. It’s not, I would imagine, unlike sitting in a deer blind waiting for an unlucky whitetail to pass below. While PUBG’s technical issues are ever-present, they rarely spoil this core experience. This is a buggy game, but they aren’t game breaking bugs.

    Though ironically beaten to the punch by the likes of H1Z1 and Call of Duty, and tarnished by a handful of shortcomings, PUBG nonetheless remains a commendably inventive and expansive shooter that deftly embodies the Battle Royale genre.

    PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on the PlayStation 4 is a port of a bad version of a great concept.

    While PUBG delivers the core gameplay of the battle royale genre, it doesn't manage to do it with the sophistication of competing battle royale games on the PS4. It looks and plays like an alpha build of a game that's focusing on getting the basics worked out without worrying about optimization or graphical polish. It's also a threadbare offering, giving you a single game mode while games like Black Ops 4 and Battlefield V give you a whole lot more game modes beyond their battle royale modes. PUBG may have come first to the genre on other platforms, but its PS4 debut feels like a game that the world has long ago passed by.
  7. 50
    At its core, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds relies on the unpredictability of players to help provide the variety, and that is not a bad way to go. Still, I would really like to see the technical issues smoothed out and more variety in the form of maps added to help make PUBG's a better overall experience.

Technical and slow-paced, it takes time to get used to your survival mechanics. But after the first victory you can't stop playing. Technically fulfilled but not the best. Its gameplay is a recycling of several market shooter. What makes the game really special is the feeling of the cat and the mouse in the games which makes it the best Battle royale on the market.

You have to come to it realizing that graphics are not top notch, and yes there are some interesting bugs. However, in my opinion, this does not affect the overall experience. I have played first person shooters for years and more recently got into fortnight (about a year of playing). I decided to give PUBG a try. There is a steep learning curve. A few matches before I managed to get my first kill and somewhere between 50-70 to get my first solo win. That first win left me literally shaking from the adrenaline rush that came with it. This is exactly what I am looking for in a game. I don't want one that I can master in a matter of hours and lose interest in within 2-6 months. The game is definitely slower paced overall, but when you engage in the few gun battles that you have in any given match it is action packed and and a huge adrenaline rush. The amount of actual thought and calculation that you have to put into your every move is what makes this a great game. It isn't for everyone, but for those that enjoy a very technically challenging game, PUBG is it. Expand

Купил диск просто докинув до кучи, основательно затариваясь в магазине. Дамы и Господа, это ТАКАЯ помойка, что не описать. Графен умер, картинка такой мезозой, что за неё было бы стыдно даже ps2, дальность прорисовки и спрайтовые деревья это конечно да... Текстуры... Ну, они есть) Физики, естественно, тоже не завезли. ФПС скачет от "удовлетворительно" до "бабушкин диафильм". Одним словом этот лагадром переехал теперь и на ps4. Особенно мерзко игра выглядит после Затмения в БО4. Expand
