Workers don't actually do anything except invisibly make you money magically. The panning is one of the most aggravating mechanics I've experience this year in a game. The various glitches and bugs are a deal breaker alone. Expand

    The game Is full of bugs and glitches, the devs only give to the players poor useful updates. Zero new content since the "Frankestein DLC"The game Is full of bugs and glitches, the devs only give to the players poor useful updates. Zero new content since the "Frankestein DLC" that happen around 3 years ago. The developers fail to the fans of the game, giving them a lifeless world. Gold Rush The game is lack of multiplayer, mod support and have a terrible optimization. If your want to waste your money, put on risk your PC, so go and Buy Gold Rush The game. Expand

    I was really looking forward to this, but even on my relatively ok system (750ti and 6core) it plays terribly. Everything has to be set to lowI was really looking forward to this, but even on my relatively ok system (750ti and 6core) it plays terribly. Everything has to be set to low to even get a "playable" version. Once that's done, you'll probably realise that the game itself is very crude. From a spelling mistake in the first mission (who's Arlnold?) to the completely lifeless feel of driving it's just dross.

    I lost the will to live when trying to get to the starting claim on the first level.

    Is it a mobile game port? I don't know, but it feels like one. Steer clear. I wouldn't give it space on my hard drive if it was 500mb, let alone 12gb.

    Gold Rush is based off the Giant's Machines 2017 platform. It could and should have been a DLC for that game. The developers in their rush toGold Rush is based off the Giant's Machines 2017 platform. It could and should have been a DLC for that game. The developers in their rush to put out a cash machine used a 2015 designed game. Embedded inside Gold Rush is ALL of Giant Machines code which appears to be as buggy as when they released it. Increased system requirements due to combining old buggy code with new. Their is nothing new here that has not been done before on a lower system spec.

    The Head Mod for this game has even admitted this and has agreed that it does cause performance issues up to 20%.
    Jan. 8, 2018 from Head Mod "I have and get the same fps on both so I do t see your point as for the game using the same.code it uses less than 20% so again no issue."

    People asking for multiplayer have been denied with the reason "small dev team". The reason appears to this user that because Giant Machines was single player, that is what they used to get their product into your pocket as fast as they could. You no longer have a single player game with just Gold Rush in it. You own part of the Giant Machines game, which to this user feels like it's running in the background.

    This is another one of those companies that lines its product with future DLCs. With the amount of money obtained from kickstarter and indigo you can expect a good amount of DLCs. The question to this user is why did they need to use kickstarter and indigo when they used their own product to begin with.

    Eventually you may end up with a product that works correctly. If they stick with it. This user feels that they will only fix what needs to be fixed to keep future DLCs rolling out.
