3079 is a FPS set in some kind of Minecraft-like world, with the addition of futuristic weapons and gadgets. There is not much to tell about the story, you were dropped on this planet to investigate life, and wound up left there to fight for your life.
I strongly recommend you go through a guide first because the game doesn't explain much at the start, nor throughout the game.
There are two 'races' in this game called the Humoids and Neanders, you start friendly with Humoids, but can become an ally with the Neander race if you start killing Humoids. There is also a third race aka the Demons, which are enemies to both races and can only be beaten using a demon smiters, which can be obtained by doing quests for leaders (they have stars on their body). So at the start of the game you might wanna avoid those guys, because you will die...a lot.
Enemies drop loot which you can sell for money (to merchants, they have $ sign on them) and buy better weapons for yourself. Best features of this game are a grappling hook, which is used the same way as in Just Cause, and an Antigrav pack, which lets you float around so you can avoid terrain obstacles. But both of those have weight limits and cannot be used after you pass the said limit.
Weapons are plentiful and everyone will find something they will stick to, from quick blasters, to shotguns and rocket launchers. There are also mini fighters in the game that you will use to bring down the big ships, but I found them a bit too slow for my taste.
As you fight you level up and increase your stats: Strength - carrying more items, Stamina - health, Firearms - weapon damage and Energy - used up for shooting, represents ammo capacity in the game). Skills you can develop include: Mining - getting gems to sell, Charisma - more likely for NPC's to follow you around, Engineering - efficiency of upgrading armor or waepons, Stealing - pretty obvious).
And one thing that annoyed me a lot is that every time you die you lose 1 random item from your inventory (so you can lose that awesome gun you just bought in a split second)
So to sum it all up:
+ satisfying shooting
+ grappling hook and antigrav pack
+ lots of fun
- takes a while to get familiar with the game mechanics
- losing an item when dying is annoying (you will die a lot)
- repetitive quests
All things said, I still had fun with the game, but certain aspects stop it from being a really good game. 7 / 10
