It's a grate game but not realistic...

I've ben with this game awile now and was hoping for a more realistic interaction with the bair and wolf. for one the bow u can't even use in stelth witch makes u need a gun that is loud and needs ammo. and if u think u can't use a bow in stelth, play farcry primal. I'm going to pitch an idea ur way, sears or a walking stick to keep wolves from jumping on u all the time. u could carve a speer from the birch or maple branches. because wolves and bairs r not smarter or meaner than mankind.

Great Game

A pure survival game. It's pretty simple, survive. But it has good, challenging gameplay. You should've got it while it was $20, because that's a pretty good deal. But I've had many memories of this game, one including getting mauled by a bear.

Finally A Worth While Update

So let me start off with the great potential this game has. It truly has a unique and beautiful enviroment that is incredibly easy to get lost in. However, the biggest gripe is the length of time it takes for an update. Thankfully it looks like Story Mode is coming in August, which has been much anticipated. Although they took their time bringing Story Mode, I am truly excited to give it a try, and so should you!

Fascinating survival game

I originally played this game on the PC. And I must say just like on the console version this game is absolutely breathtaking with it's art style and ambient atmosphere and locations. This game really nails down it's survival mechanics well. While it could use some tweaking overall it's pretty much playable. "Think, don't act too rash" is the idea that you want to go with while playing this game. And with story mode coming soon. It will be interesting to see what stories are told in this game. I would like to say my only minor gripes is the lack of ambient music. And that's pretty much it.

All I have to tell you is that this game is amazing so far, beautiful world, challenging difficulty, and immersive game play. That being said, i've been waiting for months on the announcement of a story mode, and its FINALLY COMING in August! Look up the "Wintermute" trailer!

Well Worth the Money

If you love survival you'll love this game. Even without story it's incredibly addictive. Tons of space to explore and beautiful watercolor graphics. Updates & expansions do come, you just have to wait because Hinterland focuses on quality.. almost 0 bugs ever. Bottom line, most worthwhile money I've ever spent on any game. If you miss the sale, don't worry, still well worth regular price as is.
