Summary

The initial impression of bullet battle evolution is a positive one. It looks good straight away and feels like it could be a solid cover-based shooter. In fact, it has slight rainbow six slash Cs go vibes. When I finally got into a game that didn’t result in a disconnect or error I found it to be very laggy and all over the place. Regardless of the time of day, I struggled to ever get a stable connection. From what I could work out, grenades have an area of effect the size of the UK and is instant death. Players have played more than you and unlocked much better guns. Levels look good and the animations are good but so much more negative points than positive. You get 3 classes but medic has to be bought and costs a lot of time and in-game money. Each class levels up individually which is fine but again you unlock guns so you know instantly this unbalances the game. Earning exp is slow unless you are a killing machine, you have no control over the game mode you are joining at any time, I probably haven’t seen half the modes! I can see the game could have potential with a bit of tweaking, improving the online connections and maybe adding a proper training area or the ability to play against Ai. As it stands bullet battle evolution is a cool idea that is let down by unbalanced, constant server crashing issues.
