    A very graphically friendly version of Ark.

    There are many, many issues in PixART, but it is also accessible and deep. A good crafting game for younger players.

    What little merit PixARK has is thoroughly overshadowed by how blatantly unfinished it is. It’s astonishing that a Minecraft knock-off would be listed on the eShop at a higher price than Minecraft, but it’s truly mind-boggling that the actual game is in such a sorry state. Do not play PixARK.

    I’m sure that the game will receive updates over time, and it could possibly be a good game eventually. That will require a lot of work however, and the fact that the game released in the state that it did is mortifying. The game costs almost double of Minecraft and doesn’t contain half the fun. I’m not sure why the game exists outside of the idea that maybe some fans of Ark: Survival Evolved may also enjoy this for some reason. When the Switch gets almost 30 games every week, it’s easy to recommend that you open up the Recent tab on the eShop, pick a number between 1 and 10, and chance are you’ll find something better than PixARK.

    In its current state, PixARK on the Switch is a poorly optimized, unenjoyable, and otherwise weak approximation of the Minecraft experience that in no way delivers value equivalent to the money you’re paying for it. Considering it comes with a $40 price tag at the time of writing, this unfinished and unpolished game is borderline robbing you of your hard-earned money and time that could be so much better spent on just about anything else you can think of. We would strongly urge you to take a hard pass on PixARK, as it offers a lacklustre survival experience that’s not even worth the memory it’ll take up on your SD Card; life’s much too short to be wasted on poorly made games such as this.

    What a fantastic game this is! It's bright, vibrant, and nearly as good as the game Minecraft, which it draws its influence from. I enjoyedWhat a fantastic game this is!

I enjoyed building brown bricks with this game, and plan on making a scale model of the Starship Enterprise next! Expand

    Il est toujours compliqué de noter un titre Sandbox comme Pixark. Soit vous accrochez au concept et vous en prenez pour des mois et des annéesIl est toujours compliqué de noter un titre Sandbox comme Pixark. Soit vous accrochez au concept et vous en prenez pour des mois et des années de jeu avec vos amis ou en solo, ou bien vous n’accrochez pas au jeu et la cartouche prendra la poussière car vous n’aurez ni le courage ni le temps de vous y investir.

    En comparaison de Minecraft, Pixark a des arguments à faire valoir avec des graphismes plus fins et plus colorés, un système de combat plus complet que celui de Minecraft, et un écosystème préhistorique unique. Les architectures d’intérieurs ont également été poussées pour démarquer Pixark de la concurrence.

    L’idéal serait que vous puissiez tester le jeu avant de l’acheter pour vous faire vous même votre idée, et savoir si Pixark correspond à vos attentes. Mais attention, si vous êtes débutant dans le monde des Sandbox, prenez votre courage à deux mains et accrochez vous car l’apprentissage est long et exigeant. Apprenez par vous même et essayez toute sorte de choses différentes car tel un prédateur, le jeu met beaucoup de temps à se laisser apprivoiser.

    It's fun. I do hate unfinished mechanics and getting teleported into the very bottom of the world with all my loot and getting stuck though.It's fun.

    I'd rather tear out my eyeballs and submerge them in hydrochloric acid than play this game.
