This game has one of the freshest concepts for years. You can ride tinos, explore caves, and create massive tribes. But, that is the concept. Here is what the real game is like:
-First half hour is just you scavaging for dinos for exp and materials so that you can craft things
-caves are impossible to navigate
-you are lucky if you see 5 dinos in half an hour of gameplay
- nametags are not displayed, making recognition impossible
-The worst ai's of any game. If you stand still, dinos usually cannot even hurt you, although it has improved a bit
-have fun walking the perimeter of the island for 20 minutes as you look for dinos or caves
-want to start a village with your freind? Gotta find him first!
-horrible communication from the develepor
-a horrible chat function. To type, press T, than enter. You have an extremely limited amout of text you can send
-Each server has its own warlord who was alone in the server for hours and got a teepee, a cage, a campfire, and all possible weapons, and has tamed a caro, who goes around kidnapping players and trapping them in a cage forever, forcing you to quit
-a tiny playerbase
-devs like to sweep things under the rug. Trust me, this review will be deleted in a week.
Before the update, it was a little better. If you found a couple people who you wanted to start a tribe with, you could have a totem, a teepee, a campfire within a couple minutes. Now it is a disasdter. Trust me, do not get this game. If the day should every come that this leaves early access or the dev hires some more people so that it is improbed, than you can consider getting this. But not yet. Trust me, I was excited as hell to get this game, so excited that i ignore all the negative reviews for this game, but i regret it. do yourself a favor and go spend $25 elsewhere.
