    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.

    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 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
