To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Keep in mind the version on this card is the unpatced launch version, it will be patched in a week or so as of this review, main issues are not able to load save file and a few others. I bought to support the devs. Would have given 5 stars if was patched and not have the issues it has in its current state.
First off the game is cheaper than a full retail which is it's saving grace. I know the game had issues coming out with delays and I hate to see the state of it when it was first due out. I know what this game was going for. Inspiration from Stardew and harvest moon. It just falls flat and feels hollow. I wish I had waited before preordering this game because I don't know if it will ever be updated as Stardew is semi regularly but this game is just not there. It's glitchy the fighting portion of the game is half thought out and the farm/community portion of the game are just a slapped together. I'm sorry it didn't work out and I hate giving out bad reviews but until and unless it's patched up and made into a full game I say avoid the purchase.
This game's graphics are garbage. I understand some people enjoy this style, but it honestly gave me a headache to play it. Not even 30 minutes into play, the game glitched and forced me to restart and lose my progress. It's a 'cute' game, but actually playing it is jarring.
Game is broken beyond belief. That's bad enough--eventual patches can fix issues. But the devs released this game KNOWING THE GAME WAS A BUGGY, BROKEN MESS. They KNEW the game was unplayable, but sold it to all us suckers anyway. This is unconscionable.
Here's the big problem: THE GAME IS NOT FINISHED. That's right, these developers/publishers are selling a game that THEY THEMSELVES ADMIT is not a finished product. They plan to add "many more features" (ones that are generally basic to a farming/life sim in the future. Buy the cart, you get half a game that isn't even playable in the current state.
I buy physical media for future proofing. Games disappear from market places, and may not be available anymore unless you have the physical cart/disc/whatever. In this case though, the devs STOLE $35 from me for a product they knew wasn't even finished. WTF.
Lesson learned, will never buy a game from this dev or Merge games again.
I hate when a game needs updates as soon as it first starts. Dont sell it if its not ready. This game is not interesting to me. Very stardew valley but stardew valley was way better. A few glitches are evident right away and theres not a cuteness in the mutated plants at all. Im so sorry i bought this.
