Review from Steam

Look I don't really do reviews like this but this game is ******* amazing. I payed thirty bucks for this game and my wife and I have been playing it for 3 days straight. The amount of sheer content in an UNFINISHED game is mind-blowing. The fact that I've only experienced ONE bug in the game is staggering (And it's a mild audio bug that's corrected by logging out and logging back in). I haven't clipped through the world, gotten stuck, glitched out, or otherwise experienced a single issue that isn't an intended game mechanic.
The Map is humongous and will take you between 8-10 minutes to sprint across, longer if you walk and sprinting across the map isn't really possible because of the nourishment requirements.
The enemies are a challenge. Some are annoying, some are just cute, some are a serious challenge that take real life days to prepare for and some are the stuff of nightmares that you won't ever want to mess with. (Think reaper leviathan from subnautica but they're giant insects)
The crafting is in depth, systematic, methodical, tiered, upgrade compatible and is mostly linear.
The building mechanics are simple but will let your imagination work without many boundaries.
Multiplayer - This is where the game has challenges but they're not the challenges that most multiplayer games have. I haven't experienced a single connection issue, desync, sudden disconnection, server error, or otherwise problem that keeps me and my wife from playing together. The multi-player issue is that the game requires you to have a microsoft xbox account (No subscription required) and you have to connect to friends through the xbox friend's list to play together. It's not so much of an issue as it is a mild irritation that you'll overcome if you have someone you specifically want to play with. Otherwise I'm not aware of a public search option for playing with other people. Have some friends in mind to play with before you purchase this game.
The graphics are very good, they're not amazing or mind-blowing but I have no issues playing the game with max visual settings. There's some blur that happens when trying to look at things far away but I'm almost certain the game's designed that way.
Half of the game you'll find yourself stopping and saying out loud "Whoa, what is that"?!
The other half of the game you'll find yourself twitching the camera quickly and saying quietly "What the f#@! is that"!?

game good i love to play with my dad

Review from Steam

Clearly from the amount of hours I have played this game already it is one of my absolute favorite games. My 11 yr old wanted me to get it and play it with him. When he first showed me a youtube video of it my initial thoughts were that it was a "childs game that would be completed easily". I am happy to say I was very wrong. I consider myself and nook and cranny gamer that loves strategy and puzzles, planning ahead and survival. I'm having a blast and play it with and without my sons. So no matter your age you will love it. At least this 37 year old mom of 3 boy gamers loves it!
