Review

This is not my first dance at the rodeo. Nor is it my first sandbox experience. Having platinumed the PS Vita version of Terraria, and having tried virtually all of the other sandbox experiences out there (many of them merely watered down derivatives of the genre-leaders) I can't say I was massively enamoured with the thought of sinking more time into another. I was a little jaded, tbh.

However, I'm glad I did. Because Crea has certainly been worth my time so far. The graphics are simple but functional, the music isn't to my taste but I can turn it off without having to mute it in the volume mixer, and the game runs stable even if it could do with better optimisation.

If you, like me, you have run the gamut of sandboxes, then you'll basically know what you'll be getting into, with the pleasant exception that the devs have clearly put some thought (and work) into Crea. The lore, the levelling, the intuitive controls (using a Xbox 360 controller at least), the crafting and the overall experience.

And an actual working (and coherent) tutorial - hallelujah!

The combat is fast-paced and frantic.

The crafting is logical and varied.

The levelling is Skyrim-esque.

Would I recommend it?

Definitely, the game as it is is worthy of your time and money, and the post-release roadmap, if it can be realised, looks particularly intriguing.
Rating

7/10 (for now)
Pros:

Fun sandbox gameplay with an actual twist, RPG flavoured.
Mod support.
Controller support / Configurable controls
Frequent updates / bug-fixes.
Ongoing support / updates.
Cons:

Graphics are little more than functional.
Not a fan of the music.
Could benefit from greater optimisation (though dev has indicated that this will be forthcoming).
Time-sink (con for a new dad!).
Loading times.
