    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.

    Exciting construction and management sim with great gameplay flow. It does require a lot of imagination and thought. Caution: addictive!

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

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

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A masterpiece and a genre-defining (simulation & management) sandbox game; its defining power compares to SimCity. Every aspect is well knitted together and couldn't be better. Many other games can only achieve part of what Factorio does. Factorio has every object computed all the time, offering maximum customization and reality, realizes this in an addiction-inducing way, and does this with minimal PC requirements. The mod community is active and features many tweaks and some great overhauls. But Factorio does not please the player with numbers and beautiful animations, but asks the player to surpass herself, forever. The game itself offers hundreds of hours of gameplay, and with mods one can play thousands of hours. I'm happy to see if there'll be a game better than this one in the coming decade. Expand

    It felt quite boring and unrewarding in my opinion.
