FARCRY 1, RUST, JURASSIC PARK/TUROK.
I Love FPS games. I recently got into the survival craze, and Dinosaurs are a pretty neat plot device, aside from not knowing WHY you are in the land of the lost. but HEY, its just a game. so here's my personal breakdown.
PROS ( thus far)
-decent crafting (menu driven)
-scaleable graphics for smoother gameplay (until they streamline the graphics, I'm getting 60 fps)
-build a base
-start off with a knife! and it chops wood and rocks!
CONS (thus far)
-I felt like a weakling at ALL times. you cannot fend off the attacks of a dino, so you can only run into another pack of dinos, and you will lose everything trying to get it back.
-tried to get back my hard earned loot, and once I died, my loot bag disappeard, replaced with the new spawn stuff (a knife)
-Invincible dinos (or maybe You can only kill dinos with the better weapons, but as you can tell, I cant even get anythin. surrounded by dinos, trees and rocks looted, I am just waiting to die, luckilly if I die, I respawn back at the base, but UGH, I gotta run ALL the way back to get scarce materials. Yeah, its realistic, but dinos arent real.
I know that I may have been a little rough in the cons, I know its just a beginning, and I love where the game is going. But honestly, feel a little disenfranchised. meaning, I might play from time to time, to play and feel the cool stuff, but the bad stuff (feeling trapped, wit no recourse, to ave to start over again for the 12th time) I just dont know right now.
I love the game overall though.
-make an axe
-make a workbench
-make a land claim flag
-make a foundation
-make a house
-make a forge
-make 4 chests
Follow that order.
Play the game first before joining a server, everythign was mined all to hell where I spawned, then I was killed outright by Automatic fire from somewhere.
I will be editing this as my views change, but for now, I say BUY IT, because this game is going to be a SWAN when it gets rolling.
other tip: TURN ALL OF THE GRAPHICS SETTINGS LOW to start. Nothing wrong with them, but depending on your rig, it will affect your view of the game before you play it to its strengths. so turn it down, so you can see what the game is offering.
then turn it up.
To the Developers:
I dont know the story of the game, but I have a couple of suggestions.
The Isle is HUGE. maybe allow Vehicles.
The Isle Is HUGE. Maybe make it an Island, and shrink it just a little bit, because No server is filling up, everyone is starting their own...
great Job though. I am enjoying the game. 2 days in, and I think I have it now.
