Inspired by games like DayZ, Minecraft and Stalker – Rust aims to create a hostile environment in which emergent gameplay can flourish. The aim of the game is to survive. To do this the player should gather resources. Hitting a tree with a rock will give you wood, hitting a rock with a rock will give you rock and ore. You can then craft a hatchet from the wood and rock, allowing you to gather faster. You can go out and hunt a variety of wildlife such as boars, chickens, rabbits, bears, wolves and deer. Once you have killed an animal you can butcher it to gather its meat and skin. You can craft a fire using wood and cook the meat inside the fire. Then you can eat. You face two major dangers in game. Rust is a multiplayer game, so there will be other players trying to survive in the same way that you are. Unfortunately for you they can find you, kill you and take your stuff. Fortunately for you – you can kill them and take their stuff. Or maybe you can make friends and help each other survive. Rust’s world is harsh – so you might need to make friends to survive. The environment is not kind. Bears and wolves will chase and kill you. Falling from a height will kill you. Being exposed to radiation for an extended period will kill you. Starving will kill you. Being cold will kill you. Expand

    Rust goes where no other survival game has and provides an incredibly threatening experience that, like a car accident, is equal parts horrifying and mystifying.

    Rust is a brutal game, an intense and often sadistically punishing hell with a great potential and a new look.

    Rust is a malicious experience rife with betrayal, cruelty and greed. That can make it both frustrating and sublime in equal doses.

    Rust is still as addictive as it was. Maybe, because of its early success, we expected more from it, and in that case it can be disappointed. It still needs to be polished and improved, but at its core, Rust is a great crafting and survival game.

    For competitive players who want a mix of survival and crafting, Rust is the best there is; for everyone else, there are plenty of other games.

    PvP-heavy survival game for gamers resistant to frustration, with weaknesses in construction and discovery.

    Its lack of survival depth and inclination to only reward time served instead of clever play saps whatever life it might have had to give.

    Excelente ideia.
    Bom jogo de sobrevivência, com um sistema de criação casa e itens (armas) muito da hora.
    warz, mais minecraft, igual Rust.

These 16 reviews are from people that don't understand what an alpha is. The dev's are trying to see what works and what doesn't! There is a disclaimer before you buy letting you know this, so don't buy the game if you cant handle an unpolished title. For those of us that enjoy being a part of the process to making a great game, Rust is an absolute gem in the making. The crafting options and capabilities for an alpha are extensive, and the amount of different things you're able to do to improve yourself and your base are vast. I'm glad that zombies aren't a big part of the game, but I was quite surprised with just how well the radiation towns are balanced. They give you enough time to get in and out before death, but you can't stay long without pills or anti-rad clothing.

    WARNING: at this point there are plenty of exploits as IT'S AN ALPHA! Meaning, there are a lot of hackers and it can be really annoying when you are heading to an air drop and are suicide hacked, losing everything you're carrying. So be careful when going on long adventures until some of these hacks are rooted out. Aside from the hacks and the annoyance of trying to get a good thing going with lots of shoot on sight kids, this game is absolutely great. The only reason I'm not giving it a 10 right now is because I think there is lots of improving to do before the final release and I can't wait to see that product.

    I have a love/hate relationship with Rust. I've seen it change as many times as I've seen that Rusty sunset... Plenty of times and I can sayI have a love/hate relationship with Rust. I've seen it change as many times as I've seen that Rusty sunset... Plenty of times and I can say you get some real intense moments in this game. You'll spend 25 minutes, prone on the side of a hill, waiting on the footsteps quickly approaching you. You'll also rage quit for weeks end on after having your home base raided while you we're gone... Gone raiding other bases,
