In combining an open world monster-rush format with PUBG-esque PvP, Crytek has crafted a stealth survival game like few others.

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

An inspired mix of survival horror and battle royale that also manages to blend competitive and co-operative gameplay into a terrifyingly entertaining whole.

I'll admit I wasn't keen on Hunt: Showdown to start with, but after the first few matches I realised there's something special here. This is an unusual entry in a genre ruled by far snappier shooters, and it takes time to get your head around Crytek's clever twist on the formula. Stick with it and you'll be rewarded with a uniquely engrossing multiplayer experience.

Hunt Showdown is a tactical shooter like no other you´ve ever played before. It delivers a great balance between fights, horror elements, stealth... set in 19th century Louisina. On the downside there is no single player mode and we encountered some problems with matchmaking.

An almost perfect mix of survival horror and multiplayer that can be grat for fans of western and supernatural but that can bore to lovers of the most unbridled action. Hunt: Showdown has great ideas, but is lacking in game modes.

Perhaps the greatest achievement of Hunt is that it has taken the unknowable, unexpected possibility space of something like Day-Z, and boiled it down to something you can, and must, play in under an hour.

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.

An incredibly tense survival horror multiplayer FPS, where you are just as likely to die at the hands of a monster as you are another player. Listening out for enemy activity is crucial, and once you learn how all of its systems work Hunt: Showdown is a an extremely satisfying game.

I came away from Hunt: Showdown a little let down. The premise is good, the setting is something new, and many of the gameplay loop elements are unique. Better still, the combination of PvPvE sets the stage for something amazing, but that stage is just too damned small. With too deep a grind, and too few maps, Hunt: Showdown has just too little content (currently) to match its ambition. But hey...at least the hunting is cool!
