Ratings and Reviews
And just when we were getting the hang of surviving the wilderness, too… Now we’re crafting boats, exploring tropical islands, and battling through the night. Klei and CAPY are a match made in heaven, and we can’t believe we get to witness their Burton-esque nightmare.
A bit worse than a typical survival game
To be honest, I have a hard time getting in to the Don't Starve series because there is no story, objective, and the game is generic in its design. After playing many survival games, I noticed that this game uses the same formula as the thousands of survival games that came out in recent memory. Just like every other survival game out there, you collect wood and stone to make tools and gather one ore; gold to get science kits. These science kits are basically a crafting table where you can create more tools and armor. I have seen thousands of games with the same sense of progression as this game. This game in particular irks me because:
1. When you go to generate a world, it takes a very long time to generate even a small (default) world. It takes over 15 minutes to generate it which is long time considering that it regenerates the map every time you die.
2. There are hardly any customization options in this game, unlike its predecessor. In the original Don't Starve game, you could build a farm, a house, and explore caverns with wicked flora and fauna within. In this game, it is just the boring open sea where there is hardly anything to create or explore.
3. Just like the original Don't Starve, the controls are finicky.
Great game, difficult to control. No Wigfrid.
In short, if you like the original Don’t Starve game, you’ll like this one too.
The only thing that keeps this game from getting 5 stars is that the controls are a bit finicky... it’s fine when you’re just walking around the world, gathering and building things, but it’s a nightmare when you’re fighting an enemy, especially when there’s a lot of trees in the way. Your character will just stand still, making some comment about the tree you just clicked on, while some monster chomps away at him! It’s especially bad since a lot of the fighting requires you to hit the enemy a couple times before running a small distance away to dodge their attack. You need to make sure you’re in a wide open space to fight anything effectively.
Also, you can’t play as Wigfrid (my favorite character), so you can’t just tank the enemy attacks.
