    A 3rd person birds-eye view game of walking around fetching materials so you can build stuff, so you can fetch more and better materials to build better stuff to fetch more and better materials... well, you get the idea. Sometimes you gather materials from static positions, and sometimes it's from monsters' cooling corpses.

    THE GOOD: - You can play co-op with a friend. - The dialog is

    THE GOOD:
    - You can play co-op with a friend.
    - The dialog is pretty funny.
    - It was fun for a few hours!

    THE BAD:
    - This game got really tedious after a few hours. Uninstall!
    - The quests are very simple fetch quests. Get X of this or Y of that. Plant a sign there. They clearly go on forever as you receive a new quest the moment you finish the old one.
    - You have to hit monsters all day long to kill them, dodging their attacks the whole time. This is even more tedious that walking everywhere trying to find materials to harvest.
    - The boss monsters aren't more interesting to fight, they just take longer. Much longer...

    THE UGLY:
    - The quests are not always very clear.
    - E.g. you have to plant a flag in a very particular spot for it to achieve the mission objective, but when you return to the NPC they just refuse to accept that you succeeded and won't clarify what you you've done wrong.
    - E.g. you get told to go to a place but it doesn't appear on your map. You have to zoom out to be able to see the destination, but this is not obvious to a beginner.

    Crashlands has heart and soul in spades. It is capricious, engrossing, and highly addictive. It has such a pleasant mix of genres that it can be appealing to a wide variety of gamers, not just the ones who enjoy a good craft. Its flaws, like the slow start and smudgy menus, are small and easily overlooked.

    It is easy to appreciate the effort and creativity that went into this title, but it is probably one that you will want to tackle in thirty or sixty minute spurts.

    Mediocre, yet imaginative, Crashlands is a game for those with a strong stomach for repetitive gameplay and oddball humor.
