    Insomnia: The Ark has an exceptionally cool premise and a very complex story to tell but the game that Mono Studio built to house its vision doesn’t always do a great job. It simply moves too slowly and lacks a central narrative drive. It’s burdened by combat that is both hardcore and limited, and by lots of smaller issues that add up to a bigger overall impression of messiness and missed opportunities.

    Too buggy to currently be considered playable, INSOMNIA: The Ark could eventually be an enjoyable experience in a cool, dieselpunk-futuristic world.

    Insomnia is at the moment a mixed bag, It's got a lot of potential and playing it, it's hard not to see that there is a great game in there,Insomnia is at the moment a mixed bag, It's got a lot of potential and playing it, it's hard not to see that there is a great game in there, underneath all the bugs, mistranslations and lack of polishment. Not sure if it was a good idea to release it in such condition, it will hurt the public perception a lot, but I have no doubt that if it gets properly patched a few times over, there's a good game in there. Hopefully I'll be able to update the rate higher later.
    Right now you have a game with lots of influences from the Metro series, it the way it portraits a crude apocaliptic society and mixes supernatural elements ever so slightly. The difference is, this society is stuck in an automated space station, undergoing a 400 year journey to a new planet. Deep lore, and an interesting story, with lots of quests, main and secondary. Lots of customization options for your equipment, and a combat system that is satisfaying.
    But you also have poor objective tracking, maps that are hard to decipher, translation is a complete mess mixing russian and english all around, to the point of making it unplayable, unless you can read russian.
    Hopefully in a few months after a few patches we'll be able to enjoy it better.
