Amazon.com also now has the PC version of Evolution at $30 to match Best Buy's price.
As long as it has multiplayer the lifespan of the game will be infinite. The play mechanics are nice, a combination of martial arts, racing, and more.
That's an optimistic view of things. I like your enthusiasm.
But history has shown, with many games, that Multiplayer doesn't last. Look at Tron 2.0. It has the Tron environment, game modes just as unique as Evolution's, tons of additional maps (some of them very good) and mods . . . and hardly anyone plays.
As for Evolution, I agree with Traahn's sentiment somewhat. I watched the entire Giant Bomb preview. For Single Player . . .
The Good: Environment (graphics), Light Tanks
The Bad: Everything else, including Light Cycles
Only Multiplayer and the potential for maps/mods has me looking forward to Evolution.
EDIT: Forgot to mention something.
Now that I think of it, has anyone heard if Steam is going to offer it?
Nope, it doesn't look like Evolution will be sold on Steam. Sadly. I expect it to show up on Microsoft's upcoming Games on Demand web site instead.
