    Drake Hollow on Xbox One is one of the hardest games to put down this year. It has a brilliant set of systems that keep you engrossed in the action and invested in your personal world. There are plenty of Drakes to meet, unique items and buildings to craft, and battles to be won.

    A charming and entertaining survival game, with some totally lovable tiny creatures and good and well balanced mechanics that will please newcomers to the genre too.

    Drake Hollow's overall gameplay and presentation make it a joy to experience, though the balancing for the endgame is in need of serious work.

    Drake Hollow is an amazing game to sink a few hours into and I enjoyed nearly every minute of it. The Drakes you collect along the way, the islands you get to visit and the exploration are many of the great highlights of Drake Hollow. As you explore more islands, you get to see more areas, collect more supplies and make a grander, better camp. Who wouldn't want that in a video game? I'm excited to explore more, collect more and see what the worlds have to offer me. Gotta go, enemies are raiding my camp!

    Odd design choices and an unsatisfying yet incredibly demanding gameplay loop mar a game that boasts the cutest plant people in video games. A crafting and survival sim with added base-building, Drake Hollow is not compelling enough to justify the demands it makes on the player or the lack of reward even when you manage to do what it asks.

So the building of the own base makes a lot of sense and also the randomly generated environment is always a journey weirds out. So we gladly collected the important resources to build, among other things, various defensive structures. Also the raising of the Dragoras was fun. However, the fighting system is good for beginners, but professionals rather don't get their money's worth. All in all, "Drake Hollow" is a decent game and will entertain you for a certain time. Furthermore the title is part of the Xbox Game Pass.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Overall a fun base building survival game but I am glad that myself and friends got it on game pass. The game wants you to build a town to support drakes that eat and drink more than my own child. Luckily we had 4 people so we were able to have someone living at the house taking care of the little babies and building while the rest of us went out exploring. For the first area this was great. Then we apparently got too many drakes as we hit our camp budget and could no longer afford to keep them fed, not thirsty and entertained. Then the raids started. We figured out as you build more raids time lowers. It doesn't give you enough time to build a base before you get attacked and lose it all. Through all of this we still enjoyed the game and for the most part did well without losing too many drakes. Then came the last level where the final boss is broken. All it said we had to do was weaken it and bring it back to camp. We did exactly that and killed it, just for it to respawn in our camp and break everything. Maybe we didnt get the health low enough we thought. Nope because we killed it with our fists doing 1 damage at a time right next to the center of our camp and still nothing. Its a shame because we really did enjoy the game and streamed it up until this point but after an hour and a half on the final"boss" we had to give up. Please rebalance the resource need and fix the boss and make this game as worth it as it deserves to be. Expand

    I downloaded this game as part of gamepass. It's a fun game and the story line is interesting enough to keep you going along. I personallyI downloaded this game as part of gamepass. It's a fun game and the story line is interesting enough to keep you going along. I personally did not experience any bugs or issues while playing either. My issue with the game is the game-play loop is demanding. This is a survival/crafting sim with some base building mechanics. The crafting requirements for some items become very redundant early on. The amount of them you will need to complete certain tasks or to get to certain parts of the map are high as well. When it all starts to add up, it became more like a task than a fun game-play loop for me. I'm actually a fan of other games of this type so this was surprising to me. The demands of the player to keep up with the resources needed for all of these items is too high in my opinion, and for this game to sustain will likely have to be adjusted. I feel even those of us who truly love to grind will find it tiring after a while. I'd recommend if you're a fan of these types of game to absolutely give this game a try and not let my opinion keep you from giving a game with a nice story and interesting graphics a go. Overall the grind was too much for me but I'll leave that up to you to decide. Expand
