This week’s 5-Minute-Review game is the early-access game, Fortnite, by Epic Games. This mission-based co-op survival third-person shooter is the latest addition to the Epic Games lineup. Currently in early access, the game has a lot to offer and is well optimized. The gameplay features missions in open world maps where players collect resources and complete objectives to build a base and protect themselves (and usually a target) from monster attacks. The gameplay is pretty fun and varied amongst the different hero classes, however, the missions feel pretty repetetive in the early game. The loot crate system present in the game can hold some players back behind a paywall (or extremely heavy grind) that is somewhat disheartening.
