Only thing lacking is the community. It's fantastic. But I do miss the Old NS Combat, for quick games not needing a commander. I also miss the old Alien team in regards to the gorge being their own independent builders
loved the first Natural Selection (was laggy but fixed it with different graphic options and resolution/fps) but this one has much more color. I hope to play this soon and add it to my collection of human vs alien games ... I love these things... Evolve 2 died but i hope it revives so i can have an Evolve 3 to play with so this should suffice for now if there aren't anymore people on Evolve the second for awhile.
(btw i kept remembering EVOLVE as Natural Selection and instead I now remember the fun i had with the free to play prototype of NS1 :O)
The game is good and retains a relatively small but loyal following and continued dev support so it's nice to see the game lives on in 2017, despite the release of 'NS2 combat' in 2014 which i personally think was a dumb move that only served to divide the community.
It's had more polish and nice features added since i last played it such as a very good tutorial. The long loading times seem to have been fixed as well. Loading times are pretty normal now. Unfortunately there doesnt seem to be south american servers or a south american NS2 community or i wouldnt mind getting back into it. But from Chile i most servers (which im guessing are in NA) ping at about 260 which is too much.
Worth a try if you live in North America or Europe. Otherwise you need to be wary that finding a good latency game will be difficult.
