    Factorio is really about continuously improving your factory, and each improvements makes it a bit easier for yourself. Instead of using a god-perspective, the player is personified creating a more tense gaming experience. As technology progresses, hard tasks become trivial, but planning is getting more and more important.

    This is a jewel. An unbelievably clever, thought-out, detailed, balanced, fun, brilliantly designed masterpiece that really doesn’t have any drawbacks at all. If you like to build and optimize, you simply have to play Factorio.

    If you enjoy crafting and management, Factorio is unbelievably addictive. It’s also bursting at the seams with content, offers an editor, and a multiplayer, so whether you’re looking for a game to get you through a pandemic lockdown, or a title to spend years with on a desert island, Factorio is one of the best ideas.

    Factorio is dauntingly complex, but offers almost endlessly enjoyable depth for optimizers and survival fans if you take the time to learn its systems.

    I added Factorio on my Steam wish list a few years ago. Typically I'll wait until games go on sale and almost never pay full price. About aI added Factorio on my Steam wish list a few years ago. Typically I'll wait until games go on sale and almost never pay full price. About a year ago, a coworker of mine convinced me I needed to go ahead and buy the game at full price even in early access and give it a try. Let me tell you, that was a great decision.

    A couple dozen hours in, I was hooked. 300+ hours in, I'm breath taken. This is a game I will be able to pick up over and over again over the years and re-play. There are always different ways to build, and different mods to try.

    This is my first written review on Metacritic. I did it just for Factorio. Looking back, this game has been worth hundreds of dollars of enjoyment to me. The least I could do is give them a good review since they have now entered full release. Give this game a try, and enough time to learn the mechanics, and you will quickly learn why the factory must grow.

    I have only played 8 hours, which is nothing compared to most people in this game, but I am enjoying it so far. Very engaging in how youI have only played 8 hours, which is nothing compared to most people in this game, but I am enjoying it so far. Very engaging in how you automate everything and how you're always thinking of how to make it more efficient. Would recommend to anyone to try. Also, it's only 3 gigs. Expand

    Best game. fastest 200h in my life. Best gameplay with good perfomance. Mod is good too, some of them can't change 80% gameplay.

I thought it might be some boring building game when I looked at the trailer and the previews. However when I played the demo I realized what I might've missed if I did not download the demo.

    Great system and design. The alien setting is important as it pushes you to find an optimal-ish solution with some kind of time limit, saving the game from a dull, endless building exercise.

    I haven't left my room in about 3, maybe 4 years... I keep seeing all these memes about 2020 being a bad year but I don't see why. FactorioI haven't left my room in about 3, maybe 4 years...

So if you've got a year to spare, you should definitely try it! Expand

I always enjoy this game like no other. I never could reach the end, cause I'm unable to play more than four days... However, it's a really great game and one of my favorites... I love every aspect of the game; from the OST, that creeps me, to the art, that makes you realize you're industrilizing everything, It's perfect the way the game executes the contamination system, or the alien attacks. If you love logistic and automatizing, you will love Factorio. Expand
