    ARK: Survival Evolved is a videogame with tons of possibilities where we'll fall in love with its splendorous aesthetics, its content and its particularly attractive thematic. It's sad, though, that our most important enemy in a world plagued with dinosaurs may be its disastrous optimization.

    ARK is fun, for amazing moments, but it has plenty of bugs that often spoil the fun. In its best moments this survival game is a dream for every dinosaurs fan, but it can be very repetitive and boring due to grind-based game mechanics.

    Ark: Survival Evolved has a bunch of interesting ideas. But by attempting to be a jack-of-all-trades, it doesn’t really feel like it has mastered any particular element. This doesn’t mean there isn’t fun to be had in the ARK; if you enjoy the brutal survival mechanics on offer here, then you will likely spend many dozens, if not hundreds, of hours in the quite lengthy grind as you conquer the primitive world.

    Ark: Survival Evolved is far from being complete, what with its many bugs and a feature bloat that doesn’t always hit the nail on the head. And yet, it’s still an addictive grind that proves that life can find a way.

    If you have friends, Ark: Survival Evolved is a fun survival game, with options such as PvP or PvE servers to make every player happy. If you primarily play alone, however, this game will require a heavy set of grinding and repetition, turning off any players hoping to just get a taste of some dinosaur action.

    It's incredibly ambitious, but without spending hours upon hours building a safe haven to protect you from the brutality of PvP, the single player feels a bit redundant without anyone to play with.

    Ark: Survival Evolved is a half-baked game that still isn’t worth full price.

    Las primeras horas lo odiaras porque no pararas de morir y no te enteraras de nada, pero conforme vayas aprendiendo sus mecanicas, consigasLas primeras horas lo odiaras porque no pararas de morir y no te enteraras de nada, pero conforme vayas aprendiendo sus mecanicas, consigas asentarte en un buen sitio en el que ir prosperando junto a tu tribu lo empezaras a amar hasta un punto obsesivo. No hago mas que pensar en salir del trabajo para ir a ver a mi Raptor, explorar el bello mundo de Ark, contactar con otras tribus amistosas, aplastar a todo aquel que me ataque a mi, a mi tribu o a mis animales, y un sin fin de historias mas que crearan los propios jugadores porque en Ark la historia la creas tu y la gente que puebla cada servidor al mas puro estilo rolero. Infinitamente recomendable, y para ser un early acces tiene mas contenido y es mas divertido que la inmensa mayoria del catalogo actual de juegos, eso si Ark nunca te lleva de la mano, exige paciencia, tiempo, cooperacion con otros jugadores y mirar muchas guias por internet, lo que para algunos lo hara tan especial y para jugadores mas casuales tan odioso. Compradlo sin dudar. Expand

I really dont understand all the hate... all the other comments are from when this game was in early access, so that explains all the hate. It was expected to be glitchy. It's still not perfect, but it is a huuuge game so it is to be expected. One of the funnest and most time consuming games ive ever played. This should easily be game of the year. This is as open world as you can possibly imagine; everything is interactive. Expand

    I really like this game, but in some cases developers are lazy. My rate is 8!

    If you suffer from vertigo, this game is not for you at this time. I was unable to play due to the number of graphical issues in the game,If you suffer from vertigo, this game is not for you at this time. I was unable to play due to the number of graphical issues in the game, including black/white flashes of tearing near water, extremely bright lighting, rocks and other items flashing on the screen. After a whole 3 minutes, I had to shut it off.

    At this time, the was no indication on the PS store to indicate that this was in development not that this was an introductory price, even though the dev team has said that the official release is this spring.
