Liam Lambert, GIZORAMA - "ARK: Survival Evolved is a hot mess, but a damn hot one at that. In an attempt to buck the ever-exhausting trends and clichés of the “first-person survival game with crafting elements” genre, which has become so prominent since Minecraft and DayZ sold gangbusters, ARK adds dinosaurs to the mix. Although its two most important gameplay mechanics are completely at odds with each other – trying to regulate your temperature, eat food etc. versus riding stegosauruses like it’s nobody’s business – ARK does offer up some truly awe inspiring moments. I just wish the path to these moments wasn’t lined with so many trees to punch."
