Nether is an amazing combination of spectacular post-apocalyptic survival, and very well put together First Person Combat. It does update rather often, so you need to be installing new things quite a bit, but honestly, the updates only make the game that much greater, so the updates are worth the wait.
This is a strict Multiplayer only game, so if you don't have good enough internet to play online, I don't recommend getting it just yet. Multiplayer is quite amazing in this game, and really gives the player a more intense experience when exploring and surviving the world, because now you aren't just fighting mutants, you are also fighting real time players around the world. You can either team up with friends, or be a lone wolf, the choice is completely up to you.
The graphics in this game are absolutely incredible, are give the game a whole new depth to surviving. The game features a full day to night system, moving water simulation, grass and tree movement, and actual structure movement in certain objects. The games graphics can be turned down if it is too much for a weaker computer, but if you have a beast computer, I definitely recommend playing this game in all it's glory, because it truly looks amazing.
The gameplay mechanics in this game are also quite cool, such as the combat, movement, and interactions with other things. First off, the combat system is very well made, and gives players the choice of certain weapons they'd like to use. More of a close combat fighter? go with a deadly hatchet or a baseball bat. Want to snipe from atop a building? Find a sniper rifle to pick off your enemies, the combat choice is all up to you. The movement in this game is very nice and fluent, and has just the right amount of bobbing and motion blur, just enough to feel real, and not enough to annoy you, so it's very well balanced and playable. Interactions with other things is a very cool thing in this game. Finding random objects such as a sowing kit is actually important, even though it doesn't sound like it. You can find and interact with so many different items in the game, and it really gives the player a bigger survival feeling, instead of just having no hunger or thirst.
Finally, the most important thing, this game is VERY fun. Games are not just about fancy guns and graphics, which this game has, it's about the fun in it. What's a game with no fun? I found myself staying up until three in the morning, running from monsters, and exploring the vast open world. There were many jump scare moments, and awesome fights. I realize that not everyone enjoys the same game, so that's why I'm about to put a conclusion of what kind of gamer would enjoy this game.
This game is meant for the people who enjoy exploring an open world, with not any objective except for surviving. It's a First Person Shooter, which means you are seeing from the perspective of a man's eyes. This game is scary in a lot of ways, and can scare people who are not good with jump scares, or very ugly and scary monsters. This game is also violent, and has killing of mutated monsters, who spray blood when hit, and die in a pool of blood like goo, and also the killing of other humans, who will fall over when dead, but only drop their items, and not lay in a pool of blood. This game is also Multiplayer only, at the moment, and requires that you are online at all times, possibly on a server with no people, or on a server loaded with people, so you will, most likely, be playing with strangers most of the time on this game.
I've had a lot of fun playing this game, and I hope a lot of other people will help support this game to help make it even better!
