Top Critic Average
There's plenty that's familiar about Ubisoft's belated entry into a bloated genre, but there's plenty that's quietly impressive too.
Hyper Scape is the epitome of an average submission to the battle-royale genre – a lukewarm outing that's likely to be forgotten fast
Hyper Scape has some great ideas for changing key features and mechanics in a battle royale game, but so far it doesn't come together into something satisfying.
genuinely enjoy when a game can innovate meaningfully in this evermore cramped space. Hyper Scape brings a lot of concepts to the table that, in theory, I thought were interesting, but the execution… this ain’t it.
The new Hyper Scape from Ubisoft is a decent battle royale that offers some good ideas, but has to deal with too many problems.

Hyper Scape has enormous promise and some cool gimmicks, but its core gameplay pales in comparison to its more popular cousins. If Ubisoft can address some of its issues, they might be able to craft a game worthy of your time.
Whilst Hyper Scape has some interesting ideas that make for fun and thrilling gameplay scenarios, the game does very little to stand out amongst its competitors. Although it is lacking in personality and lore, future updates could allow Hyper Scape to carve out an identity of its own. However, currently, it will do little to pull you away from your preferred battle royale game, and if you're not a fan of the genre, it won't make you a believer.
Hyper Scape is a polished and pretty battle royale, but it is also bland and generic from start to finish. In a market already saturated by free to play shooters to try, Hyper Scape should be an afterthought. It doesn't have the confidence or the personality of its competitors, and it's come onto the scene far too late. There's a lot to like about Hyper Scape, but you probably won't find yourself playing it for long.
Hyper Scape has promise, but it's just so infuriating to play due to poor aiming controls. Some don't seem to have a problem with it, as I see other PS4 players racking up kills all the time. Still, it's better to wait and play something else until this gets fixed.
Comparing with other battle-royale games, Hyper Scape is really fast. But at the end of the day, it doesn't unique and fun enough to impress me.
