GameFront: "Don’t Starve is good, but not fantastic. It has all the necessary starting elements for a good survival game – hunting and gathering, base-building, and even a final objective – but it lacks the end-game intricacies and interests of similar titles. It is, in essence, half-finished. Fortunately, the developers have committed to updating the game every month on the dot, which means that purchasing it will guarantee plenty of future updates. If you can stand the lack of purpose and simplified mechanics, you’ll enjoy Don’t Starve immensely. If you want something meatier and more absorbing, you’re best going somewhere else."
