Some of the Steam reviews (positive):
If you like, Conan, if you like Ark, if you like Rust, if you like Atlas, this is the game for you, this combines the best of all those games, and it feels polished, no real bugs, and great fun in pve or pvp. It’s quite unique in how everything works and there is a ton of things to learn and take in and do.
Best survival game launch I’ve been through and I’ve been through them all… Rust, Ark, Atlas, Conan Exiles,Last Oasis… this games is light years ahead in terms of quality of a good launch for an indie game versus those other big titles.
And some bad ones:
I wanted to like this game. The graphics are nice, although everything is usually drab (weather?) There is surely a good game in the making here, but I think I’d wait to buy it. At the moment, the game is an unprecedented grind hell. The menus and dialogue/text are jumbled and confusing. On top of that, its a Chinese game with terrible translations. There is a lot of rubber-banding like old-style MMORGPs from days gone by.
The main problem is the combat and movement speed. Running, even riding a horse, you move at a crawl, its extremely tedious. Combat is incredibly clunky, blows that should be a clean hit inexplicably miss, arrows are anemic and inaccurate.
The last one is rather funny:
I joined a guild, because you cant get to a pvp server to battle until GUILD LEVEL 2 so I gathered all my belongings and made a long journey during which my horse died and had to abandon precious materials Id spent hours gathering, because of weight. I got there, my new home allies surrounded me and were following me and messaging me … lol So long story short they tricked me, killed me took everything and kicked me out of the guild so i didnt have access to my belongings.
Have you played it? worth buying?
