I really enjoy this game a lot. It was kinda cool how I stumbled across this game actually. I'm an avid camper and I love being outdoors. I had surgery 6 months back and I couldn't leave my house, drive, paddle a canoe, hike, camp etc etc ... I came across this game and fell in love. It's the perfect game, simple controls, minimal hud. Don't let that fool you though, the attention to detail is AMAZING. All the way down to going close to a rock face to reduce the amount of cold air blowing at you. I never encountered any bugs which is crazy for a game " still in the works " ... Overall this is one of the best experiences I've had gaming. The graphics are super awesome as well, obviously it's not crazy realistic like some games but I actually really enjoy how this game looks and feels. Nice work everyone over at Hinterland! Thanks for a great gaming experience and for allowing me to " get out of my house " while I wasn't able to leave my room!

The first couple hours had me on the edge of my seat clutching. Its still challenging and after 4 hours I discovered 10%. During that time I was going through caves, worried about getting eaten by a Bear and Ive been chased by a wolf and lost in the middle of blizzards at night. I would do it all over again. 5* Worth the price and barely a beta.

From the gorgeous art style, to the unforgiving game play. This is the most harsh, unsettling and anxious survival game I have played. Once a blizzard hit one morning and lasted what seemed for days. Started to run low on supplys, thinking "Yeah, I can hold out just a little longer". Only to find out i'm out of food.... . With the blizzard showing no signs of dying down I had no choice but to head out into the cold. A great mistake i had made when I realized i've ventured too far from my cabin... only to fade into... The Long Dark.

Truly astonishing, the art style is beautiful, the voice acting incredible, the environment is harsh and keeps players ready for whatever is thrown at them. A must own game for players who like Survival games. Definitely the best survival game I've ever played.

Absolutely spectacular game, definitely my style of gameplay. So glad it came to console, since my computer could never run it. Keep up the great work!

Amazing game

I love the graphics and game play. It has a bright future if they keep it up. It is an amazing game for being in early access so I cant hate anything about for it is still being developed. I wish more games were like this. I cant stop playing.

Honestly one of the best wilderness survival games out there, but taking waaaaay to long to be a finished product

This game is by far the most realistic survival game ive ever played. Most survival games just tell u to monitor ur food & drink but this game tells u to monitor everything from food & drink level to callorie intake to body temp & body condition & food & equipment condition. I love the great artstyle & graphics for what it is. Could be more 3D type of models instead of paper looking models but i still like it. also love the gameplay. alot of effort went into this game & theres alot to do. the difficulty could be tuned a bit as even on medium difficulty those wolves are unforgiving. also please add gamma brightness adjust in the options settings. during night or in dark places u cant see ANYTHING without a lantern or some form of light. i understand its realistic since in real life u cant see in the dark without a light source either but with very little light sources its hard to do anything in the dark. or at least put a realism mode to let u toggle real effects like darkness on or off

This game is the best pure survival game there is. The art style is amazing and so beautiful, its atmospheric to no end. If you play with a gaming headset, you actually get cold while playing. I went to Hinterland studios website and left them recommendations on what they could improve and the next update fixed everything i mentioned. The men and women working on this game really know how to please their gamers and make a great game. I would recommend this game to anyone wanting a great survival experience and a good time.

Most beautiful game there is on Xbox

I've been playing this game since it first came out on xbox and to see the changes of graphics and gameplay really makes me believe that this game and the developers at hinter land studio should deserve more credit and others souldn't pester them to make what ever they want.
