Fortnite is an addicting co-op survival simulator for up to four players, released in the 2017th. You can play with a smaller number of people or even in splendid isolation, but in this case, it becomes significantly more difficult to perform combat missions. The game is available on such platforms, as Windows, Android, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, IOS, and MacOS.
Looks cartoonish 4/5
Fortnite looks rather pleasant, bright, and cartoonish. Epic Games artists could please us with unique graphics and stunning details. How many objects, funny things, and all sorts of different gizmos can be found! In addition to it, textures of all objects are well-designed. Of course, if you're a fan of realism, then you won't like views in the game. But we can say that graphics here have become a unique feature of the project.
Collect, construct and kill 4/5
The gameplay is conventionally divided into three stages. The first stage is to collect resources, rescue survivors, and complete various side quests. For this, players at the end of the mission receive awards and medals of honor, which affect the value of the chests with awards given at the end of the mission.
The second stage is the construction of a defensive fort, which is being built around some important research equipment, a crashed drone with valuable information, a launching rocket with a satellite onboard, or something else. This does not change the essence of the matter. It is important to do everything possible to protect an object from the methodically advancing Husks.
Well, the third stage, as you probably already guessed, is a battle with the living dead, trying to break through your defenses. The player must withstand the siege for some time and several waves of zombies, after which the mission ends and the rewarding begins.
Sometimes too realistic 4/5
The character moves much more slowly when he runs to the side or to the side, which is generally realistic and logical. It is impossible to get used to it immediately. Again, there is nothing wrong with this, just do not spit right away, play a couple of fights, and learn to control the personage. After 5-6 battles, you will be able to interact normally with a team, partner, or independently fight for leadership in a battle.
Again and again
Fortnite is the project in which you can get stuck for long hours. If you don't like campaigns, then you can take part in a royal battle. And vice versa. It's possible to play alone or with friends, against AI or against real people. There are many Easter eggs that you can find here and there. So, we can say that you won't get bored in Fortnite 'cause there are many things to do.
Summarizing everything that is written above, we get a glorious shooter with convenient, but atypical controls, and the possibility of cross-platform play. Yes, it's not perfect because there appear bugs, and you may meet cheaters. Anyway, these problems can be found in nearly any project. We recommend running this game and enjoy an unusual world with nice competitions. Feel free to invite your friends and play together. There is enough content, entertainment, and dynamics.
