    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.

Ни разу не пожалел. Игра довольно проработанная и глубокая,а если вам этой "глубины" не хватит, это дело решается модами, которые значительно ее расширяют. Но изюминка игры - это история, как правило, она трагичная. Игра генерит просто тонны душещипательных историй, описывать их занятие бесполезное, в это просто нужно поиграть. Равнодушным она вас не оставит. Просто 10 из 10 белок людоедов. Expand

    After 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 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. Congrats to Tynan (the main dev) and the rest at Ludeon! Expand

    It seems almost impossible to describe the true brilliance of this game. The best phrasing I can imagine is that it's kind of like TF2. ItIt seems almost impossible to describe the true brilliance of this game. The best phrasing I can imagine is that it's kind of like TF2. It doesn't really do anything new, it follows its genre's tropes and expectations but also improves upon it with its own unique twist mechanics. Take for instance the mood of your colonists. Morale is nothing new in city building/simulation games, however Rimworld handles it by using a new and incredibly numerically specific method to make it easy to understand,. and gives the player a clear idea of what they need to do. The best words I can use to bring the true quality of this game into perspective is that it is a Landmark on the base building/survival/simulation genre. It is a damn near master piece that will be looked back upon for generations and will serve as a past example of greatness for many future game developers. Or at least... it should be. It's not exactly popular amongst the simulation community, even if it is ranked as one of the highest rating simulation games on steam. I don't hear much discussion of it and I know this is a monumental long shot but it wasn't even a nominee for any awards in the game awards. And it could easily fit into many of the different possible awards, such as independent game, fresh indie game, strategy game, and community support (the games modding community is incredible, but that's a whole other 10 page long essay). But it makes sense because that's the scale this game is on. Its so good it rivals many of the big shot triple A strategy games being made present day, and that's when the game is at its worst. At its best the game is untouchable and is absolutely unrivaled to anything that has ever come and will ever come. Ok that may be a bit of an exaggeration but you get the idea. The games good. Go get it. Its fun and interesting and it contains hundreds of hours of entertainment. Expand

This game has been in development, alpha and beta versions for so long it's unbelievable, and even the early versions were quite fun. It's a huge game and a gigantic open world but while it feels intimidating at first, it's actually very intuitive and enjoyable. It's an excellent example of how you can have a great game even without fancy graphics. Also it's addicting as hell. Expand
