Hunt: Showdown Detailed

Crytek has been through a lot since announcing HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age three years ago, and apparently so has the concept for the game, which has been retitled Hunt: Showdown. The original plan sounded like a steampunk Left 4 Dead, but PC Gamer describes significant changes that made this their favorite game of E3 (thanks [H]ardOCP). They say, "Gone is the Left 4 Dead inspiration, instead Hunt: Showdown is like if Evolve, Stalker, and Resident Evil 7 had a big, demonic baby." They point to the game's E3 spotlight on Twitch and offer detailed impressions from seeing the game at the show. Word is:

Trust us, Hunt: Showdown promises to be one survival game actually worth caring about. Itís bold, original, and uncompromising in its vision for an asymmetrical PvPvE shooter where five teams of two stalk through swamps and moors trying hunt demons while avoiding one another.

It is but after reading some reviews on here and around the web, I decided to skip it. Perhaps it's been polished up a bit since it launched. Thanks for reminding me, I may take a look again at it.

Been looking for something to scratch my L4D itch. Looks like this won't be it.

I didn't play it, but wasn't Vermintide a rip-off of L4D? I've heard some good things about it.

Vermintide is very good. IMO much better than L4D but, and this could potentially be a major turn off, there is no PvP. The Coop is fun, but it gets old very soon. Or at least it got old for me. I always enjoyed the competitive Versus modes much more in L4D, and hopefully something like that makes it into Vermintide at some point.

Sounds kind of cool, so better be extra careful that it isn't shit.
