My main gripe about this game is that since it's abandonment by the devs. The devs haven't allowed modders free reign to complete what they left off. All of the mods in the workshop(as of now) are just different maps, starting scenarios, and adjusted rates.
Allowing the modding community to do what it does will make this game better. period

Very fun, but abandoned by the devs.

This game is actually really fun. If a review says anything about their people not slaughtering animals, or starving, or not prioritizing certain tasks.. it's probably because that person tried to expand their civilization way too fast and the amount of tasks to complete outweighs their current population. You have to be smart and expand slowly as your population starts to increase or you are going to be in for a rough time as your people struggle to complete all of the tasks you have set out for them.
I would give it a 7/10. If there were more animals and crops in the game or if new buildings were added I could see the rating moving up to a 8/10 or even a 8.5/10. All in all its a fun game.

As a civilization, we should have stopped at brewing beer and growing chickpeas.

This is one of my top 5 games of all times. Being a non-competitive player, I welcome the slow pace that this game affords. It's very easy-going on you and easily enjoyable after a day of work. You might feel disappointed if you're looking for action-packed, competitive gameplay, such as you see in Age of Empires or the likes (mind you, it's not even the same genre).
However, it's not to say that the game is boring. There are several aspects to the game which need you to focus, as one bad winter or one bad raid can easily cripple your settlement. This is doubly valid for hardcore mode (iron-man mode). Always have crops to last you for two years! Some of the achievements are not so easily obtainable either, so you're definitely getting your money worth of game.
Maps are not random, but each map has several starting points which adds some diversity. You can also start in nomad mode and settle a different area every time as well.
One word of warning, though, this game is not getting any more updates. In other words, this is the final form of the game, period. You can get some extra content from the Workshop, but nothing official anymore. However, for its price, you're getting a lot of game as it is.
Also noteworthy is that the game isn't very forthcoming about its more refined features. There is a task priority feature, so that you can prioritize some tasks, such as sowing/harvesting crops over others, but it's hidden under a very inconspicuous button so it's easy to miss. The game also fails to tell you that the villagers are not some sort of robots who can work 24/7, so the game gives them some time to rest during which they simply show as "Idle" and don't seem to do anything. That's directly tied to high workload and the game warns you if you go overboard with overworking your villagers.
Yes, it's not perfect, but it's also not as flawed as others might make it sound. Sometimes, it's just a matter of changing your playstyle.

I'm genuinely sad the devs abandoned this. I think it is quite fun, and could have been improved into something even better :(.
