If you're up for a quickie, this is the exploration game for you.
The vanilla adventure takes a promising 2-3 hours. The content can be extended/changed with some workshop mods that make the game significantly easier or head-bangingly more difficult; it's something to keep in mind if you're looking for a game that can fit your needs.
The main question is, how good are those 2-3 hours of content?
The lack of any map at all will certainly frustrate some, even if it's done in one comfortable sitting. Thankfully, the game is not confusing and having to remember where to go next won't/shouldn't be an issue.
It's unfortunately backed with some backtracking and some animals that will attempt to ruin your work or outright kill you. You can kill them using the environment, but it will take some effort.
The environment can trap you if you're not careful. This is in combination with auto-save, so restarts might be a possibility.
The sound and level designs are fantastic. You will feel an urge to explore them, run through the trees as you desire, looking for secrets and such, it's well deserving of exploration. There were no noticeable glitches.
There are a few, side-track things you can do to occupy your time such as hatching animals for your own benefit or killing the rowdier animals. Also, runes and deciphering.
The ending will leave your opinions going... "back and forth" I should say.Should you buy this?
If you like being thrust into worlds and having to figure out the story for yourself, then absolutely. Otherwise, if you're not much for exploration games, games with little/no text, have a phobia of birds, or don't like puzzles, this isn't for you.
Three stars out of five.
