This game is a odd one, you start out the game by crashing on a island filled with these strange creatures called buddys.
The story of the game is somewhat hard to follow, but without trying to give out spoilers here, you must help these mechanical "gods" re-create the world with your engineering and creative powers. There are four seasons in the game, and it took me about eight hours to finish the game, and thats with me messing around a bit. After you finish the story mode there are little to no reasons to do it again. The only thing for replay ability is sandbox mode, where you play around on the island with many (but limited) tools, making any vehicle your heart desires.
Throughout the game there is a little bar at the bottom of the screen that tells you what to do next, but I would of rather seen a check list menu or really anything other than this. It doesnt grab your attention easily, and I offen times would find my self forgeting about it and wondering what to do next. Other times when I did see it, what it said didnt make sence, one example that tool me awile to figure out was, near the end of the game it told me to "Find a large object" and it tool me almost fifteen minutes to figure out what I was suppost to do.
Now the big thing in the game, making your own vehicle, is somthing this game does fairly well, you startout with a base of your vehicle and build from there. So, say you want to build a car, start with a car base, add a few connectors, add wheels to the connectors. and you are all set! However, its not all good. The game gives you blueprints that you can find, these are pre-made vehicles that
A. get the job done
B. Are faster to make
C. Look cooler than anything I could make.
By the end of the second season I found myself going to these rather than building anything myself. Also the gravity and physics in this game dont feel right. Planes and helicopters feel like they're made from paper, the cars are too drifty, and the boats feel like your anchor is alwase down.
All in all this game is a quirky, fun, just plain weird building game that lets you be creative in a world full of weird things. But the story isnt there, the gameplay is diffferent and it really feels like its incomplete. But if you have six plus hours to burn, this isnt the worst of all choices. (Just dont get it for full price) :)
