    Stories, stories, stories. RimWorld sets you up for an ever changing game in which only your engagement remains the same, potentially for hundreds of hours. And when you’re done with the vanilla version of RimWorld, there are thousands of mods that enhance or change the game in such a way that it is all fresh again. I am in awe of RimWorld, and it deserves a Big Fat 10 out of 10.

    Rimworld is a new standard in survival/strategy sims, and has emerged from early access with grace. Now the REAL fun can begin...

    The diversity of environments significantly enriches the game and challenges experienced players in new conditions every time. It’s a hellishly good game – for me an addiction that makes me go back to it and reach for more and more. [13/2018, p.84]

    This strategy game offers survival and business simulation in one package. With the player learning from trial and error, numerous unpredictable events bring additional challenges to solve, while enriching the story at the same time.

    Successful mixture of strategy, tower defense, survival sandbox and sci-fi story generator with a guaranteed high replay value.

    A satisfying colony-building sandbox with a lot of replayability that suffers from a lack of polish in the UI. A great aesthetic and quirky sci-fi take on the genre mean there is a lot to like here, it just takes a little digging to get there.

    An imaginative management game but a weak story generator.

If you want a truly landmarkAfter 500+ hours with this during early access and the beta versions, this is about the best $30 I’ve ever spent. If you want a truly landmark game that can run on almost any computer and provides a nearly limitless amount of entertainment, you don't need me to tell you to pick this one up.

    경영과 생존의 액기스만 뽑은듯한 게임성은 분명 최고지만 더 다채로울 수 있었다는 아쉬움이 항상 남는다. 결국 멍청할 뿐인 아군 적군AI와 수많은 모드로만 채울 수 있는 컨텐츠들이 결국 명작으로서 가는 한단계가 비워져있다는 확인만 시켜준다.경영과 생존의 액기스만 뽑은듯한 게임성은 분명 최고지만 더 다채로울 수 있었다는 아쉬움이 항상 남는다. 결국 멍청할 뿐인 아군 적군AI와 수많은 모드로만 채울 수 있는 컨텐츠들이 결국 명작으로서 가는 한단계가 비워져있다는 확인만 시켜준다.
