Hungry Shark Evolution – The Most Absorbing Game Ever?

Okay, so I recently downloaded Hungry Shark Evolution and within just a minute of the gameplay, I was hooked right in. This is the game I am going to spend time being addicted to for the next couple of weeks, so excuse me, folks!

First of all, I was worried if the game would take up too much space. I have a lot of other games on my phone and I am kind of hooked to all of them as well. But it did not. This Ubisoft game downloaded pretty quickly and installed quickly too. My initial experience was already good.

Not knowing anything about the game, I was sucked in just within a few seconds. The basic concept of the game is that you control a shark, or you are the shark, whatever! You make the shark move around the screen. All you have to do is touch the screen and drag your finger and the shark moves in that direction.

Why did everybody hate the Doom Multiplayer Beta?

It has been more than a decade since Bethesda has released the last game in the Doom franchise, and seeing how sci-fi FPS games are now one of the most popular genres played today (especially on the PC), Doom could not have a better time to re-emerge with a new and graphically/systematically upgraded game. But why did everybody hate the Doom Multiplayer Beta?

However once the multiplayer was released to the public as an open BETA, instead of a pleased and excited community the developers faced a massive mob of angry and bitter players. Some of their hate stretched to the point of absolute despise towards anyone who talked positively about the game or even showed clips of it in the background of a YouTube video and etc. So what went wrong?

Well… To start off, the angry mob comparison may have been slightly exaggerated, however the grand majority of people who played the Doom Multiplayer BETA did not claim to have had a good experience, and certain old fans of the franchise even appeared to be upset by what they witnessed as well as seriously worried about what the complete game design will be once the game is fully released.
