    Reviewing this game was a ton of fun. I enjoyed every minute I have put into it. With so much more to be discovered, I can’t wait until the next time I have a chance to play it again. Forager is easily one of my favorite games. Players who enjoy crafting, farming, and exploration should definitely check this game out.

    Every now and then, a game comes along that captures our hearts and reminds us why we love the medium in the first place. Forager is the latest in a line of stellar independent games to grace the Switch, featuring wonderfully designed crafting mechanics, addictive progression systems and more charm than you can possibly handle. It has very minor drawbacks, and its longevity will ultimately depend on how comprehensive its upcoming DLC will prove to be. Nonetheless, there's enough good stuff present here for us to confidently declare that Forager is a game all Switch owners should look into adding to their collection.

    I am addicted, my sons are addicted and we have to share a Switch. Frankly, its hell. Once Forager gets its long claws into you, you're in trouble. Its so moreish, its a lot of fun and there is always something to be doing, some new items to find or build. Just go and buy this game now its great fun. Its definitely one of my favorite games of the year so far.

    Despite some unevenness, Forager is absolutely worth a look. If anyone ever asks me for a relaxing game that they can throw themselves into and become obsessed with for a week, this is my pick.

    I had a ton of fun with Forager for the first 10 hours or so but once I got to the point when the pacing becomes tedious, that fun quickly came to a halt. Nevertheless, I would still recommend Forager to fans of similar games.

    Forager brings forth a good open-world simulation game that successfully transmits to the player a rewarding feeling of growth and involvement, along with simple and fun mechanics. Watching the growth from a simple plot of land to a large empire is very satisfactory, even if the game's performance seems to deteriorate as the player's fiefdom expands.
  7. 65
    Ultimately, Forager has potential, but a little more scavenging is needed to take it from an appetizer to a main course.

Placing things like buildings or landfill is just impossible sometimes but the game itself plays very smooth now that the updates have arrived. It´s not a GREAT game but it´s also not a bad game. You can definitely play the **** out of this game because of how simple and fun it is so..... buy it and help me stop my parents from fighting. My Discord Tag is EvanTube#2108 :( Expand

They’ve said the port has changed hands 3 or 4 times now and there’s been ZERO progress. What’s included in the switch version is FINE, but compared to the PC release it’s night and day. They are basically two different games. Expand
