Although the game degenerates into quite a grind after the completion of the first series of missions, the procedurally generated worlds and the friendly community provide enough variety for long enough.
Deep Rock Galactic feels like a crossover between Left 4 Dead and Minecraft… and it’s great. If you’re looking for something new but familiar at the same time to play with friends, this can be your game.
Ooh, aah, that’s how it always starts, then later there’s running and screaming. Deep Rock Galactic can be deceptively easy going at times, right up until the swarms of bugs come crawling out of the inky darkness to besiege you and your friends. Who knew space dwarf mining could be so fun?
Deep Rock Galactic offers some enticing exploration, as discovering randomly generated caves can be a thrill each time, and the unique abilities of each class are fun to combine. But things quickly begin to grow stale, like the air this far down into the earth, with repetitive missions and little reason to grind out your experience levels.
It's a good game, it just gets old fast for me. It's more for relaxed, laid back gaming with your IRL friends or friends you've known for a long time and just want to talk while not doing too much work.
There are different kind of missions and decent variety in classes and weapons, but the bosses aren't that memorable and the main mechanics are usually just mining stuff, escorting a payload and extracting.
The maps are randomly generated and the voxel system works very well, you can mine in any direction seemingly infinitely and you will frequently find people just cutting through walls, floors and ceilings.
Game is pretty fun to play especially if you got a group of buddies that like to mine deep in the caves and get sweaty together. There aren't that many maps, objectives or enemy varieties but as far as I can tell they keep adding new events and types every season. Only issue I have is that the terrain collision is sometimes really crappy and that there is no fail safe implanted in the game once the main hosts disconnects (which can result in losing 30+ minutes of progress and that happening a few times is really annoying). They should work on the server/host issue but overall a pretty fun although repetitive game.
I don't know, somehow I found this game to be too laborious and not enjoyable.
You are always in a black cave and always run out of light flares. Would love for the beginner players to have an option to keep the lights on.
Then, to always guess whether you are moving in the right direction...
Maybe the game is just not for me.
Would advise you to give it a try on Steam, where you can request a refund within 2 playing hours if you didn't like it.
