I have dismissed this product as merely cardboard.
It's a rubbish game. Don't waste your money. If there are any issues with the Switch port of the game, you can be sure the developers will never bother to fix them.
I hate to say it, but this review is spot on. I used to love Rust and have spent hundreds of hours on it, but if you don't dedicate every waking moment to grinding and fortifying your base, a clan of unemployed Eastern Europeans will raid you within the first couple of days and destroy everything you own that's not worth stealing. To me, the insane amount of effort required for any kind of reward in this game makes it unplayable now.
@graffitiheart: Hmmm. Guess you've just got a learning difficulty then.
@graffitiheart: Go ahead and try it then. I don't care if you blow your pocket money on a mediocre game.
By the way, the game is only well regarded by the people that like it, which is a minority of people that have played and reviewed it. It went viral because streamers started promoting it heavily in exchange for favours from the devs. That doesn't mean it's a good game.
@graffitiheart: I'm not surprised. You must feel really daft now.
@graffitiheart: I didn't tell people not to try it. I just said they're not missing out on much if they don't play it, which is true. Who hasn't played an online FPS game before? It's a standard arena shooter stuck in last man standing mode. And if you listen to people who have actually played it, it's not particularly well liked.
I bet you haven't even played it!
@graffitiheart: Millions more don't love the game. What's your point? It's a pretty average shooter marketed well. You've just bought into the unjustified hype. Early access is no excuse for banning players because streamers want them gone either. They only do that because streamers are marketing the game for them.
Like I pointed out to the other person, in 2013 over 8 million people were playing Farmville each day. According to people like you, that must mean Farmville is an amazing game!
@Mogan: In 2013, 8 million people were playing Farmville each day. Does that mean Farmville was an amazing game that nobody should miss out on?
@graffitiheart: How do you figure that? The Internet is littered with complaints about the bad servers, dodgy physics, bugs, and the corrupt moderating that means if you irritate one of the streamers they're relying on to promote the game by killing them, you get banned. 53% of recent Steam reviews are now mixed or negative.
Lots of concurrent players doesn't mean that there aren't lots of people who think the game is average. I played it for several hours with friends and none of us thought it was anything special. I last played it in July and don't feel inclined to play it again any time soon.
