    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

    The game is great, it has a lot of content and runs decently. If you like open world survivals, it is a great option.

    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.

    Es un buen juego y poder llevartelo a todos lados con tu nintendo switch no tiene precio, sin embargo pudo haber estado mejor optimizado yaEs un buen juego y poder llevartelo a todos lados con tu nintendo switch no tiene precio, sin embargo pudo haber estado mejor optimizado ya que de vez en cuando hay lagazos y caidas de fps pero son contadas las ocasiones en las que pasa por lo que no te arruina mucho la experiencia de juego pero lo que si arruina la experiencia es que despues de unas cuantas horas de juego hay veces en las que el juego se cierra por un error y esto ocurre en mayor medida mientras mas dinos o construcciones tengas lo cual es muy molesto porque si estas avanzado en el juego se cierra cada 5 minutos y se vuelve imposible de jugar. Y tambien es muy molesto ver nuevas actualizaciones y contenido en pc y que no actualizen las versiones de consolas diciendo que estan trabajando en ello.
    It is a good game and being able to take it everywhere with your nintendo switch is priceless, however it could have been better optimized since from time to time there are lags and fps drops but there are few occasions in which it happens for what does not It ruins the gaming experience a lot but what if it ruins the experience is that after a few hours of play there are times when the game closes due to an error and this happens to a greater extent the more dinosaurs or constructions you have which is very annoying because if you are advanced in the game it closes every 5 minutes and becomes impossible to play. And it is also very annoying to see new updates and content on pc and that they do not update the console versions saying that they are working on it.

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