Having read some of the negative reviews it seems people say they can't get into the game, that is because it has a long grey loading screen on startup and any mouseclicks will crash it, be patient and you will be rewarded. Once into the game you start at a pre-built base which is fine while you get started but the Devs have provided a completely bare island (Sliceland) just waiting for you to move into once you are ready. There is no guide as yet so you won't have your hand held as you learn the game but there is an active community and any questions/problems you have are usually answered very quickly. If you love exploring, crafting, creating, saving animals and killing mutants then this could be the game for you, considering it is EA there is a huge world already in existance with much, much more promised. From the African Savannah to snow covered mountains and arid Deserts to lush forests there is so much to explore that even after playing for 200+ hours I am still finding new places I missed on earlier visits. The Devs are very active and responsive, serious bugs are fixed in extremely quickly (in a matter of hours sometimes) less serious bugs/player requests are incorporated into regular and frequent up-dates. Loading screens between the various areas can take a while and the game can be a bit choppy when you first arrive but it soon smoothes out, just make sure your PC meets the minimum requirements (8GB of RAM is a 'must have') Overall this game is awesome and only promises to get better.
