Some hard-to-ignore faults hold it back a bit, but the game does just about enough to make up for them, and in the end it should be commended for its uniqueness, and for capturing the element of survival like few other games have in the past. In fact, I’d go as far as to rank this among the best of them comfortably. It may not be a game for everybody, but the concept alone ensures that it should at least be given a try because it’s most probably unlike anything you’ve experienced before. This is a true survival game, and overall it’s really a great effort."
