It was the first departure from the original sharp 90's texture look into a smooth 'soapy' shadering, but still holds well technically.
This is inevitable of the biggest engine ever made. Remember, when they show to us this absolutely amazing physics, and that was a big revolution back then! Yeah, it's becoming old, and Source2 is coming, however, I think, Source 2 will never completely replace THE Source engine.
And again, it's lightning system or his cubemap system is pretty bad, now that we have real time lightning and cubemaps... But it gives it his little charm.
When I download a game, I have low expectations, especially when it's still in early access, but to my surprise, in the few months I had this, the game kept surprising me from time to time. From the first time I got my first, tiny house built, to now, when I am playing with a couple of friends and we made our own little fortress and even got ourselves a couple of Brontos and Big T's. The game overall caught me by surprise as I expected very little from it like always but now I enjoy playing it with friends.
It's a fun game on desktop and even more fun in VR. Once you get the Kitty Cannon you can really start with the destruction. It's still early access, so right now there are only two levels, but the replayability of those levels is pretty high so I'd say it's worth the investment. Also, it's pretty bug free for an early access game as far as I can tell so that's a positive. There are all sorts of little easter eggs in the game as well, which makes you want to try to find them all. Overall it's a very entertaining game.
While this isnt a terrible game and i dont think it deserves a 0/10 its not my review that matters, but the overall rating
--- and it is not worthy of 8+, the game was much less than promised by the developers and dumbed down AF in so many ways, the story especially, i enjoyed the game but do not reccomend it, the developers need to learn to make better games.
