OMG. so good.
This is probably the most fun I’ve had playing a game in a decade. There’s been a long delay between me playing the game and actually writing this post, but I still am able to adequately gush about how much I love this game.
I may have a bit of a hard time describing it. On one hand, it’s very sandboxy, and you can pretty much do whatever you want whenever you feel like it. If you feel like exploring, go explore. If you feel like building something, go build something. If you want to slice up some enemies, go right ahead. The world is yours. In that regard, it can be somewhat comparable to Minecraft, but in most respects it’s very very different.
Some might complain that the game is somewhat directionless, and I admit that to begin with I wasn’t sure what to do, but as soon as I started discovering and looking up all the amazing things I could accomplish, I couldn’t put the game down.
The game does a fantastic job of giving you incremental improvements to things like weapons and armor, decorations for your house, etc, so you always feel rewarded for the time you put into the game. And the game isn’t MMO-ish in that it feels like you have to put in your time to acquire something. You’re always about to get the next cool thing.
The bosses are tough and fun, the different terrains bring you plenty of surprises in mobs to fight, and the items that you find are exciting and interesting.
Go play this game. It’s super fun multiplayer. There’s so much to dooooo~~~~!
