I have played over 40 hours and so far I had a nice ride.
Here´s my review:
good graphics and setup. the character design and customization is neat, although I played zoomed out most of the time anyways.
nice ideas and gameplay when it comes to base building and crafting. pretty good production chains. very nice concepts in this game.
I love the post-apocalyptic-style of world design. atmoshpere-wise this really stand out.
BUT... and there´s always a but it seems:
( i know it´s early access , I get it. I never expected a finished game. it´s not that I bught it without having experience with other EA titles.)
1. core mechanics not working or not working consistently enough
this one is my main concern. workers forget their jobs, which means you end up a lot of micromanaging individual group members.
also pathfinding and collision is a mess sometimes. even the workaround (which are offered, that´s a plus) don´t work consistently
2. slow development cycles.
the game is in development, which is nice. but so far I have experienced only one real update. the devs are in contact with the playersm which is nice. but I wonder how this game will ever pick up some momentum and gain some ground.
basically from my standpoint, i couldn´t care less about great char graphics and player customization... thats all icing on the cake once its baked and finished to eat. but pathing, collision and AI behaviour is so essential for this kind of game that it needs to get taken care of asap.
and when Í read on the forums that some core game bugs are dependent on the actual game engine chosen for the game, I am prone to believe that maybe the have chosen the wrong engine....
its been a good expense/reward scenario for me. I don´t mind spending the money as the time I played was great. but there´s no poin fo rme in keeping playing right now, because of the points mentioned before.
keep in mind: it´s early access. so if you want to support the game and idea behind it (like I wanted to):
buy it. its a good investment as the game itself will be sweet once it´s far more advanced. whenever that might be though...
