Really do like this game it feels as there isnt much too it but it just seems to make
you want to play it . The graphics are just fine but who cares about graphics?

The gameplay is suprisingly fun with a big range of weapons like flar guns to walking sticks (LOL)
and with great features like sleep, hunger, thirst, hygine, social, bladder etc
it is very unique and can e a blast and makes it a hell of alot better with friends as the multiplayer isn't that active but you can always play arcade mode with awesome game modes like hunt and world leaders its very good.

The things that lack is that it can get repetetive and can make you bored after a period of time playing by yourself and can be too easy to win ever single time.

77/100

The -Mob-Ship

So this is an adventure, you appear by somehow on a ship, when suddenly a meddling that shows everyone on board is on the middle of a survival game for their lifes, you know the hunter and the hunted. (and to vary, everyone loose their ♥♥♥♥ing head by that)

The Ship can´t be more big than it is, 5 covered, and going to end with the same fate of the "Titanic"(looks like big ships can´t coexist without being sunk)

but you have an usefull map which indicates objetives in every moment so you can´t be like a missing turistic in a new country.

But this is not you average boring ship, is a completely ♥♥♥♥ing mafia from the inside, conspirancy ,hitmans, even yakuzas....
Packed with weapons in every corner, lockers, and every single room you can find (i don´t know how this ship was ongoing)

To make thing harder than it already is, your character things he is in some kind of "Sims" game, he has needs...everytime.....Oh God...a ♥♥♥♥ing kid.

10 missions to complete, to get a wtf ending

But despite the negative facts, it has a good dynamic, and good idea from base. Is a good way to go later with the multiplayer (When the fun doesn´t end neither).

Turn Clue into a first-person shooter on 1920's era luxury liners, sprinkle in bits of The Sims, and you've got The Ship. Instead of having to uncover a killer, The Ship makes you the killer. To be more specific and familiar to the gaming audience, The Ship is a very polished and creative take on the Assassin's Creed Multiplayer experience (but also keep in mind that this game came before the Assassin's Creed Multiplayer genre was released)....where the main gameplay mechanic revolves around finding your target, called your quarry, and breaking their face as stealthily as possible. To do so, there are plenty of lethal weapons and objects to wield, and even some environmental traps that you will find yourself potentially avoiding. To add flavor, everyone else on each map has a quarry as well. While pursuing your own target, you'll need to stay alert and attempt to spot the passenger readying a knife for your back. The Sims element of the game, quells upon your daily needs to survive (food, drinks, toilet, sleep, etc). The 'character's needs' element makes for a deeper gameplay experience, as your character is vulnerable to attack while you're downing a bag of chips or snoring on a bed. And it is surely funny when your friend murders you on the toilet. The Ship is one of very few games that brings a large amount of enjoyment to my friends and I. Built on Valve's Souce engine, a majority of gamers can experience a $20 title with basically 4 copies to gift away. A little too much? Ask four of your friends for $4 each, and your all set! Overall, The Ship is a very innovative, satisfying and humorous experience that a bunch of 5 friends can't pass up. "Let us set sail!."
