Hunt : Showdown is fantastic. The pleasure is immediate and very long-lasting as long as its difficulty does not upset you. It's a visceral and immersive experience that you should absolutely not miss if you are a fan of cooperative games. After 202 hours spent on it, starting from the first days of its Early Access, the situation is clear : Hunt: Showdown is an amazing FPS and it won't be forgotten.

By a seemingly well-done combination of PvE and PvP elements, Crytek has done a great job in depicting the risky life of a bounty hunter, stuck in a post apocalypse in late 1890s. Realistic combat and the astonishing atmosphere of Hunt: Showdown provide a great opportunity for players who want to experience survival horror and battle royale together, like no other game. However, relatively clunky gunplay and somehow poor graphical optimization are two things that prevent this game from becoming a masterpiece

With its horror setting, slow-paced gameplay and unforgiving permadeath Hunt: Showdown is one of the most interesting FPS of this generation. An easy game to recommend if you like the idea of hunting big bad monsters and don't mind the random server problems.

Hunt Showdown is a good alternative for fans of competitive and hardcore online fps. It's engaging, intense and immersive to the point of nervous exhaustion. Its eccentric personality doesn't make it a game suitable for everyone, but for the same reason those who appreciate it will do it viscerally.

Hunt: Showdown is Crytek’s finest work to-date. The gameplay loop is equal parts exciting and dangerous, never feeling at ease in any given match. This is the best the CryEngine has ever looked. Hunt: Showdown is an evolved multiplayer shooter where the horror elements permeate throughout. Hunt: Showdown is an absolute gem for all the genres it plays a role in.

Hunt is not entirely free from defects: there are only two maps and only two game modes are available, not to mention matchmaking and some weapon balancing problems. Nothing irredeemable, though

Hunt: Showdown is un atypic competitive shooter. A different way to see the online FPS videogames, with great settings and PvP-PvE features.

Hunt: Showdown is a clever, hard-nosed FPS that doesn't have enough substance to be truly essential yet.

Crytek have made something that feels truly distinct with Hunt: Showdown. The tense, high stakes PvP action blends well with southern swamp-horror PvE to create a fresh and compelling multiplayer experience, though the extreme lethality of the combat and a current lack of content might leave you hunting for a sale.

Hunt: Showdown is a unique mix of battle royale and hardcore survival games. The learning curve is incredibly steep and permadeath is fairly punishing. However, the core gameplay has that spark of horror tension and the art design excels in every aspect.

Hunt: Showdown wants so desperately to be its own new thing that it didn't seem to consider that what it is... isn't particularly fun.
