Hyper Scape was a free-to-play battle royale FPS game developed and published by Ubisoft.


Servers for the game was shutdown for good on April 28th, 2022, rendering the game unplayable permanently.

Why It Sucks

  1. First of all, the game was released in the middle of the hype of many famous battle royale games such as Call of Duty: Warzone, Apex Legends, and Fortnite, making this game automatically sells not that damn well.
  2. The gunplay is incredibly unbalanced, some weapons are way too weak while others are for some stupid reason overpowered. The worst example is the Minigun, it is way too powerful, that you can pretty much kill anyone without even trying. Ubisoft tried to nerf some weapons, but for the most part, some of them still feel unbalanced.
  3. Poorly done and wasted game mechanics, for example, while parkour might be a good addition to Battle Royale, it is so poorly done, to the point where it makes the game either too easy or impossible, Easy to dodge and impossible to kill depending if you're using it, or you're trying to kill an enemy. Even when it tried to innovate the Battle Royale genre as a whole, the game doesn’t do a proper job at all, as it’s mechanics are a wasted potential.
  4. When the game launched, it was incredibly broken, for example it was suffering from lots of crashing, when trying to launch the game, it simply refused.
  5. Bad controls in the console version, especially if you have them on default.
  6. The "Crown Rush" mechanic is extremely broken, you have to hold the crown when it comes to win, however with the abilities it makes, it's getting too unfair.
  7. The game doesn’t have a proper tutorial mode, instead when you start playing you get a practice range to test out weapons, there are no instructions given to anything, and when starting a new game you’ll easily be confused.
  8. The aim assist is broken, as it is way too strong, and it makes you feel like you’re using an aim bot, it would also make the matches completely unfair, to the point where it can feel like cheating.
  9. While not bad, the old map felt too small, which would make it impossible for certain mechanics, considering the game’s fast paced gameplay and as well as it’s reliance on the parkour system.
  10. The match-making is horrible and it's not skill based at all, no matter how high or low you're rank is, you will end up with players that are either rookies or veterans, and it will make the matches really impossible and unfair, some of the players that can appear in the server probably haven't played the game yet, and are just getting used to it, it's still makes it really unfair.
  11. Despite having a cross-play feature, it's only available and between the PlayStation and Xbox versions, and it's not available for the PC version at all. They probably did this to achieve the success and a bigger player base on the console, but it's still an unfair treatment. It should be noted most other battle royale games already had cross play and available on all platforms, also it can make the lobbies in the PC version very small compared to the console versions.

Good Qualities

  1. Decent graphics.
  2. The reload animations are great, and enjoyable to watch.
  3. The game is known for it's Twitch integration, where players can vote the next powerup that will appear, similar to "Chaos Mods" for certain games such as Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2005) and Grand Theft Auto V.

Reception

The game received mixed reviews from critics with the praise directed at it's graphics and map design but criticism towards it's gunplay and mechanics. On Metacritic the PC version holds a 68/100 the PS4 version a 62/100 and the Xbox one version a 60/100. The player score however was much more negative with the Xbox One version having a 5.0/10 The PS4 version 4.9/10 and the PC version a 4.1/10. Angry Joe listed the game as number 9 on his list of the top 10 worst games of 2020.
