“We’ve all fallen hopelessly in love with ruined wastelands before, but this really is exceptional.”

“It's twitchy, but as shooters go it has a tactical, methodical pace. As it evolves, the team plans to expand on that formula to include cooperative, and perhaps even single player modes.”

“The short, sharp combat is a thrill to experience, the atmosphere is thick with violence and the world looks beautiful. This isn’t just combat – it’s about hunting down humans and surviving in a brutalist landscape.”

+ They finally added Anti-Cheat

--- Everything they've changed since the big UI overhaul patch has ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off greatly, the last straw was them removing match loot and replacing it with a pay to participate lottery called the treasure hunt.

I used to love this game and now it's like a shitnami has swept all over it.

The game looks fun however after waiting 30 minutes with all locations checked and finding no server I can't really say anything.

However have a bug where I can't see my head. After reading some other reviews they too had the same bug, along with unable to see the other players. That makes this game kinda hard to play when you've got graphical bugs making it impossible to play. I don't really know whats up with the 30 minute wait times, if it was just me or if something else happened.

Let me start by saying, I wan't to like this game. It looks good, the gameplay isn't bad (especially for a F2P) and the weapons are interesting and varried.

What's really killing this (beta) game right now is the bots. If you want to sit back with a Mosin and pick off bots following the same path, go for it. If you decide that gets boring and you want to get up close and personal, the bots can hit you with SMG's from insane distances while firing yours has you looking straight at the sky almost immediately. The bots also will track people (or other bots) through walls and engage them as soon as they have a clear shot. The bots are really ruining this game.

put £1.30 into lottery win £30 gun for a level i cant use because of lack of gear, put 1£.46 into lottery win another gun which i cannot use which is worth £15, this game is addicting first person arena shooter, it does not deserve the tag survival, however still a great game, the hacker problem has been thinned not wiped out, the smurf problem (which im apart of) has not been dealt with, however i dont see a clear way of preventing that and cant wait until final release when it becomes open world until then its a buggy addicting ♥♥♥♥ fps arena shooter WITH AMASING VISUALS and cool maps, do i recommend?, hmm if you are very good at fps's yes however if your the average csgo scrup you wont last pas rank 3, so install play until rank 5, and save up your money lol.

So im changing my review this time, im sorry but I have to admit it, this game sucks ♥♥♥, after playing some multiplayer matches I have to say that this game is just wrong, I gave it a positive review before but that is because I wasn’t playing a broken unbalanced game then.

Now I have more than one reason as to why this game is just a failure, let me go over with them.
Survarium has some decent points and there are some good things about it, but honestly this game is actually just a fail.


- Interesting factions
- Nice detailed weapons
- Awesome armour models.
- Very nice graphics
- Detailed interesting maps

The factions are really neat, it’s a shame that it had to be wasted on a multiplayer PvP game, great job Developers.

The weapons are great, nice textures, nice weapon models, it looks fantastic, but yet again, shame that it had to be wasted.

The one thing that I love in this game are the armour models, the armour models are superbly well detailed and fit the post-apocalyptic setting of game very well, you have Hazmat Suits with Russian gas masks, you have firefighter suits, you have skull masks and all of that amazing stuff out there for you to see, but yet again, you won’t be able to use it since it is actually impossible to level up and get the gear, and because there is a ton of grinding to do, you be better off ripping the armours and putting them into Fallout 3, New Vegas or 4 to be perfectly honest.

And now the cons, and oh boy there is a ton of them, so let’s get started shall we?


- Unbalanced weapons
- Unbalanced teams
- Players who pay more are apparently better
- No singleplayer
- A ton of grinding
- Developers don’t listen to the community
- Broken bot AI

1 - This game has such horribly unbalanced weapons, apparently a AK-47 is less powerful than a SMG, apparently shotguns are the new sniper rifles, apparently a supressed sniper rifle which is meant to reduce damage will kill you from full health with a shot to the knee, yea no thanks, tell me how is a shotgun which is meant to be a close quarter’s weapon is able to kill you in two shots from 20 meters? I have no clue, and the Developers are not giving a crap about this, a suppressor on a Sniper rifle is meant to reduce your damage somehow I am shot in the foot and I go from full health to zero, and about SMG’s, they are meant to be close quarter automatic weapons yet I am shot with one and killed in seconds from a distance of 30 meters, broken as ♥♥♥♥.

2 - The teams in this game are also horribly balanced, tell me how this is fair? I a level tier 3 character, and my entire team is also tier 1 to 3, but the enemy team is somehow magically tier ♥♥♥♥ing 7 to 10, yea totally fair, put a bunch of new players with crappy weapons against a team who has access to weapons like the AK12, Scar-H and a AS Val, super well balanced. (Not)

3 - This game has a feature that if anyone who pays more is instantly the best player in the Developers eyes, yea because someone who payed £5 or £8 should have an advantage over new players who have not played this game, also this brings me back to point 2.

4 – This was meant to be the next Stalker game, a sequel, a totally new game, instead of making this a fantastic possible singleplayer open world game, with unique factions, detailed weapons, amazing armour models, beautiful visuals, they instead wasted all of this creativity on a free to play multiplayer game which is broken as hell. Oh and the so called PvE or free play is never coming, don’t get your hopes up.

5 – Once you reach tier 3 of any factions, that is when the grinding starts, while it may not seem that bad, like only 3000 points for tier 4 man that sounds easy, yea if it actually was, because no matter how many kills you get, no matter how many objectives you capture, no matter how much points you get, you will still always earn 100 to 200 points per game, how do I earn more you ask? Here is your solution.


A ♥♥♥♥ing premium account is what you ♥♥♥♥ing need, and there is not even an option for a permeant account, no no no no sir, there is only a certain amount of time membership like this is ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s.

6 – The Developers are horrible, I heard from people and even seen it about how many people complained about certain features on the forums, guess what the Developers do? They ban those people, yop, you heard right, they ban members who complain about things like broken unbalanced weapons, long ♥♥♥ waiting time and etc:
What an amazing Developer team you know? Ban members who complain about features that need fixing but nooooo nooooo noooooo because you know premium content and overprized DLC is more important than the health of the game.

7 – With the recent update that brought bots into the game it seemed like a good idea, play against bots in case you can’t play the game online because of the certain points I listed on top, but the problem is that you don’t earn XP or points when playing, it’s the one ♥♥♥♥ing thing they could of have done when adding them, since the online is already broken as ♥♥♥♥, but nope, they didn’t.

You won’t even play a game with bots normally either though, why do I say that? Bots are bots, they are not meant to be gods, they are meant to be stupid which will grant you easy kills and will give you a fun time, just get a Sniper forget about the SMG and the shotguns or anything else, because once you get a SMG or a Shotgun they will instantly lock on to you like they are a Terminator and legit wall hack and aim bot you through the wall before you even have time to react, how is that okay? I was hoping that once they add bots into the game it would at least become something okay you know, but they can’t even do this right.

In short this game sucks donkey ♥♥♥, and I don’t see this game surviving any longer, barely any people play this anymore and within a few weeks or months this game will be dead, the free play that the developers promised us will never happen because they are ♥♥♥♥♥ and liars. That is Survarium for you.

I was realy sceptical when i was about to download this game because of all the negative reviews and after i downloaded the game and played it for a couple of hours its wasn't bad at all in fact it was a fun experience.Now fo all of those who say that there are many hackers in the game recently the game got an anticheat system and it is pretty good i played this game for 2 hours straight and i didnt find any hackers.As for the game the game is beaudiful it has gorgeus graphics and realy detailed maps.Also now you can find matches quicker instead of having to wait for 30 minutes to find a lobby.Honestly i believe this game deserves a second chance its a realy fun game and it has potential and it would be a shame if that potential got wasted so go ahead give it a try who knows you might actualy like it i cerntenly did the game had an aweful launch and so what the developers are trying to correct their mistakes and so far they do a great job.So like i said before give this gem a try you might actualy like it

I really enjoy this game. A few days ago i was very dissatisfied with this game. Character where missing heads and things like boxes wouldnt load until i got very close to it. Yesterday NVidea had an driver update which fixed this problem. There are still some graphical issues, ive noticed in some parts of certain maps, FPS drops signifigantly, some times even lower than 20 fps which is very dissapointing. Other than that, the gameplay is amazing, you shoot someone with 5 bullets and they die. They dont take it like bb pelets which is something i particularly enjoy. THe maps have a nice design but alot in it that may cause the random frame drops. The gameplay is like 2 enemy factions came across eachother in an abandon place in the woods ir something. The guns alot of recoil which gives that game alot more immersion and can be easily controlled. Oveall this is a beautiful game and i wull reccomend it to all of my other PC gamer friends

The game seems all right, but has its problems. The biggest issue I've run into is their "anti-cheat" which takes any sort of connection issue as cheating and restarts the whole damn client, then I have an issue logging in from steam when the client restarts. I find this unacceptable. Glad I didn't waste any money on this one.

I've played this game for 3 years now and I still enjoy the game it my go to game for just getting away from other games like ARMA for instence and if you can look past some bugs here and their you would enjoy this game too. It is build by some of the guys that worked on the games series STLAKER and you get that feel in this game too but its an PVP game and yes the dev team is hard at work with an PVE side as well but till then we could enjoy leveling up in PVP matches.
