Early Access Review
As of update 21:
Welcome to Breasts of Play! Or rather walking simulator 2015. or rather "how to ---- up your game developers" simulator 2015.
Yes ALL of those titles would be better title for this game then Beasts of Prey, why do I say that? Because there are no "beasts" in this game.
Let me elaborate for you... describing my latest experience in BoP. I log on the day of update 21, I find a nice US public server, I log on, start collecting rocks (you pick them up now) and gathering wood. The server I’m playing on crashes and all my data is erased.
I dip my head in a bowl of cold water, wait two days and play again when the official pve server is on . I log onto the official pve server. Start the usual rock/wood gathering elements. Sees no dinosaurs but a few packs of compy and some cannibles. Walks and gathers, walks and gathers, walks and gathers.
Night time now.
Walks and gathers, walks and gathers, walks and gathers. Suddenly I get caught behind a mountain (which makes your screen pitch black due ot there being no moonlight). I see two cannibals run in front of me and attack me. I take damage and run like holy hell! I run, I run, I run, I run and finally I run out of stamina and dodge and weave striking my attacker with my knife, finally I succumbed to my attackers and to my sanity and log off. I log back on and respawn in some random area of the island with no marker to point me to my stuff that I lost. I log off, this time for good.
I don't even bother going to the PVP server for a few reasons:
1. People hack and abuse glitches to kill others.
2. People will kill you and steal your items for no reason.
3. Everyone who plays on it hasn't hit puberty yet.
4. Pvp is a cheap stunt pulled by developers to get you to play their game, a good game will have good PVE too.
I want to take a moment to say something people, I do not hate this game, I do not hate the developers, I want to see this game be a great game.
But yah see the problem with BoP, really isn't BoP.... it's the developers who CONSISTANTLY add new content into the game with ignoring key elements of the game and without fixing any previous glitches/problems with the game, as well as seem to block out any good and sane advice given to them by those who post on their forums.
And it took them two months to do this?
Sure the island is new and the graphics are a bit clearer with a few new crafting items to toy around with but all in all it's the same stuff that the developers have been trying to sell since I FIRST did this post back in Alpha 16.
My suggestion is to avoid this game like a sickness and wait to buy ARK:Survival Evolved.
2/10 - don't buy this game, don't even look at it, it's a walking/gathering simulator and nothing more.
