Though Raft may lack content once you’ve reached its closing moments, the lead-up to that point is a surprisingly delightful and novel experience. The basic gameplay loop of collecting and crafting keeps you busy, whilst a set of on-foot areas to explore keeps the gameplay ever-evolving and gleefully varied. An absolute solid co-operative choice, there’s an ocean of content to be found on this humble raft.
Fun game, allows mods, had several updates, manages to be a crazy time sink (588 hours so far - I do leave it running in the background a lot but I know I still put a LOT of active hours into it). Build, destroy and re-build your raft, hunts bears, sharks and more, dive deep into creepy abandoned underwater cities, follow a vague storyline that doesn't really matter but does give you scope for imagination if you want some story behind it... for a world covered in water with nothing to do but float from teeny tiny island to island, this game gives you plenty to do!
Raft is simply one of the most charming survival games I’ve played. Simply standing on my raft as it floats over the waves through an endless body of water is truly relaxing. There’s also a great sense of pride and achievement that comes with seeing what I’ve built every time I load into the game. It’s an easy recommendation for survival fans that may have been holding off on jumping into early access, as well as those just learning about the game for the first time.
SummaryRaft throws you and your friends into an epic oceanic adventure! Alone or together, players battle to survive a perilous voyage across a vast sea! Gather debris, scavenge reefs and build your own floating home, but be wary of the man-eating sharks!
