Average User Score: 8.3Apr 29, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Don't starve gives no tutorial, it punishes every mistake and hardly rewards you when you do good.
In other words, it is a rouge like. A survival-adventure rouge like.
No, a BRILLIANT survival-adventure rouge like with a spiffing art style and sounds.
Everything can kill you, nothing is easy and the world keeps throwing horrifying monsters and other dangers at you; Yet it never feels unfair, you can kill the monsters, you can get out of the traps, you can survive.
And that's not all, there are five other characters to unlock who all have their own set of powers, stats and personality's.
And I must say, the characters are so well made that they feel like real people.
But that's just survival mode.
There's a door hidden somewhere in the world, a doorway to adventure.
What lies beyond is a set of five extremely difficult levels that does everything in its power to stop you from reaching the next level.
It may sound hard, impossible, even, but it's the only way to get to unlock the last two characters and to find Maxwell and find out the secret of the world you are stuck in...
And as the game is still receiving regular content patches everything above will improve in every way.
TL;DR: Don't starve is hard but fair with tons of content and I highly recommend it to all fans of the survival genre.… Expand
