If you want to experience what it’s like to be the ultimate monster-hunting bad ass, then you’ve got to play as Parnell in Turtle Rock Studios’ asymmetrical shooter, EVOLVE.
EVOLVE is a truly innovative sci-fi action video game set on a futuristic planet called Shear. Earthlings have settled here to mine the planet for its valuable minerals. Unfortunately, Shear is plagued by giant monsters that wreak havok all over this fragile human outpost. In response, the settlers of Shear have commissioned a group of intergalactic mercenaries to hunt and destroy the monsters. You can play as the monster or as one of the hunters. Enter Parnell and his supercharged arsenal of kick-ass monster-crushing weaponry.
As this video shows, Evolve delivers big on the sci-fi power fantasy. Who wouldn’t want to strap on a jet pack, don an armored suit, and track down a slavering beast with a multi-shot rocket launcher? I know I do!
Parnell brings the swagger of Carl Weathers in Predator, mixed with the intense cat-and-mouse monster hunting of Aliens. In this game, the tide can turn at any time. One minute, you’ve got the monster on the run, the next, you’re getting your face smashed in by a well-timed ambush.
The next time you fire up your PS4, XBoxOne or PC, do yourself a favor and give this one a try. You’ll be glad you did!
