I've been playing this game for a bit off and on. I love it but also am critical on some things. I will give a more in depth review in the future once more content has been put out. Right now as of today I give a temporary review.
1-You can take control of rovers, landers, zero-G probes, and even control a human character.
2-The Dev's are working to put in realisticscientific data recorded from what is currently known about Mars.
3-Multiplayer is about working as a team to create a base. This isn't DayZ, Rust, StarForge or other games that people run around and kill noobies while complaining about how bad the game is, this game demands patience, teamwork, skill, and most importantly a mature and calm outlook to get into.
4-The game is simple to mod, you can create custom scenarios, and can even save games while in MP.
5-Bohemia Interactive and their amazing track record for bringing us incredible games that challenge the word "Simulation."
1-As with any early access there are bugs, right now there is a SP game breaker bug that causes you to not use rover/lands instruments that require robotic movments. This will be fixed once the Development team returns on Sep182014.
2-Multiplayer does not have survival mechanics in. This will also be fixed when the dev's return.
3-Multiplayer has very few people who actually play it. Due to the high system demand, and how intimidating/frustrating it can be to get into this game, a lot of people give up. I've spent three hours yesterday trying to teach people how to change keybinds and rotate objects. The keybinds need to be reworked, especially since most people don't know or don't even have a "Mouse4" button.
