The Ship is, for the most part, a good game. It's fun with friends and offers an interesting dynamic where you never know who your being hunted by or who you can trust. The game is especially fun with friends. The game has interesting weapons, some compelling mechanics such as disguises and surveillance officers. The game runs on the premise that everyone is a hunter and everyone is being hunted. You have only so long to kill your quarry after the first murderer on the server kills theirs. You can then steal some items off their corpse and even off innocent people you may have killed along the way. The art style is somewhat appealing, and has an almost TF2 look about it. Most of the maps are fun and gratifying to explore and some of the weapons like the poison in a syringe is just damn fun to use. The needs system is for the most part unique and interesting and gives killing your quarry an extra layer of difficulty.
The game has a fair amount of flaws that make it unenjoyable in some spots. The game has a strict "Kill Quarry Only" policy that makes it hard to just screw around and have fun with friends, since, if you kill too many innocent people, you are (indefinitely in some cases) banned from the server. Some of the maps are way too damn big, or are just straight up horrible to play on. The needs, while there for the soul purpose of making your life difficult, are ridiculous sometimes. For instance, why in the hell, when I'm about to kill my quarry, should my character stop everything he's doing and go, "Nope. No way am I killing this guy, until I've read me some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Shakespeare." The Single Player and Tutorial versions that are treated like entirely separate games, are essentially pointless because the game just isn't fun without friends. And don't worry. The game has made it a priority to make it as frustrating and unnecessarily difficult as possible for you to connect with your friends and play the game properly. The in-game server list does not work. You MUST use the one accessed through the Options menu or you can't play with friends.
All in all I do recommend this game, but only if you have friends to play it with.
