    Dysmantle does everything you expect a good zombie survival game to do and more. It's a huge game filled with great ideas and is more addictive than chocolate-covered brain slices. Dysmantle is great.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time with DYSMANTLE and am looking forward to exploring even more of its expansive zombie-infested world. If you take pleasure in crafting things while smashing up everything in sight, I highly recommend grabbing your crowbar and giving it a go.

    Don't be fooled by the unassuming presentation of this indie title; Dysmantle is a monster that will have you in its grasp in no time. With an addictive destroy and craft loop, and a big open world full of intrigue and challenge, you'll be bargaining with yourself for just one last scavenger run every time. Elements such as combat, camera and graphics have obvious room for improvement, but there's no shortcoming that detract from just how involved you become with this game. Anyone looking to scratch that RPG itch with a new time sink seriously needs to consider purchasing Dysmantle soon.

Clear tutorial explains the basics without giving too much away. You start with nothing, but soon gain a tool that does minimal damage. As you progress you unlock different tools that can do more damage or dysmantle different objects. Its a perfect example of an open world game with lots of different things to do and areas that open up as you become stronger. It has drop in/out local co-op which makes it great fun for couples. Its hard to say how much there is to do in this game without spoiling the fun of discovery which is spot on.

    Pros
    Incremental exploration
    Essential couch co-op
    So much to do

    Cons
    At night it is easy to fall in water or down a hole
    Not split screen co-op so limits range of players

    We have been playing the game about 100 hours and have completed about 90% and there is still lots to dysmantle and an entire area still to unlock.

    Highly recommend to players who like lego games, minecraft and days gone.

Its almost overwhelming when you first see the map as you realize how massive it really is. There are main and side missions to follow but I think the game is at its best when you are just exploring, Finding certain items to complete a mission can at times, be frustrating. However though, I found if you just explore at your own pace you will eventually find what you need. Most things i have read say the game is about 50 hours to finish but I can see myself putting a lot more than that into this game. Game has a pretty good crafting tree and there is a lot of variety to what you can craft. Enemy's are fairly easy to take down, However there a few early on that seem to overpowered. Most of the missions are fetch quests to find a certain material although some side missions require you to defeat enemy's or to solve a puzzle. The only real survival mechanic you have to deal with is your health. There is no hunger, thirst or sanity that you have to worry about, so its not your traditional survival game. Other than that, the game is pretty fun. I could see myself easily putting 100-200 hours into it before seeing the entire map. Definitely recommend Dysmantle to anyone who likes any type of open world exploring game. Expand
