Perhaps I am on the wrong track but it seems to me, that someone played MineCraft Multiplayer PvP and thought, "let's do it with nice graphics and better".
And then he tried and failed.
There is no need, even no sense to go deep mining from the beginning, because you can mine for hours without finding ore, but if you just run around you will on the surface little hills which are pure oil, coal, titanium or whatever.
In survival you need to eat. Nice. You hunt, you kill some animals. These animals shall give me meat. Sometimes they do.
But these are really interesting animals, very often they do not consist of meat, but they carry guns, blueprints and ore. Sure. Very funny. I am in need for something to eat, I kill 10 animals and get 4 pieces of food which is not enough to create the thingy you will really eat? Very funny.
The whole game seems to be about: join with some guys, gather blueprints and ore from the surface, create weapons and vehicles, kill.
This game is NOT about mining and construction. These are things which are possible, which are even fun, but they are not supported in a meaningful way.
So, if you are looking for a MineCraft clone, nope. Wrong game.
If you are looking for a shooter, nope, wrong game too, because it just not really a good shooter.
It is just the try to create a MineCraft PVP clone which failed.
It is a shame.
Many parts of the game are really fun. But it is as if there was no project lead which just steps back, looks at the whole picture and tells the guys where they have to change/add/remove something, so that the whole picture makes sense.
Sorry, but I say: do not buy
