Don't Starve

IGN
13 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Like most roguelikes, progress in Don't Starve oftentimes feels like a Sisyphean task. Time spent battling shadow creatures, building a farm, and ultimately, an inevitable death are rewarding once they get going, but failure to recognize success robs them of meaning.
  • Pros: Beautiful presentation, Robust crafting system, Interesting story bits
  • Cons: Little sense of reward or accomplishment, Menial tasks quickly become tedious

Softpedia
12 August 2013

  • Pros: + Survival experience, + Exploration mechanics
  • Cons: - Somewhat repetitive, - Limited story

  • Excerpt: If gaming could be said to have a counter culture, it would be fair to say the survival game is one of the darlings of said culture. In the case of Don’t Starve there are no brain munching fiends in evidence, instead there is a focus on the basics of survival; fire to stay safe at night, and food to...

Don't Starve (PS4) Review: Rinse and repeat

GameZone
10 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I never played Klei Entertainment's Don't Starve when it was available on PC. I was interested, but it wasn't until it came to the PlayStation 4 that I first attempted survival in this unforgiving, gothic-inspired world reminiscent of something from the mind of Tim Burton.

  • Summary: I sat across the fire from my longtime companion, Philip the pigman, in complete silence. Philip and I had been through a lot together, hunting down terrifying creatures of the night, felling mighty trees, and scoffing all the food we could find. He was both my best friend, and my only friend.

  • Excerpt: It is no secret that the franchise behind Minecraft has blown up, like to the point where elementary level kids are playing it! However, among those people that don't play Minecraft (and let me tell you, they do exist), they usually have a common complaint: they can not get over the block-ish...

  • Excerpt: Crazy-haired, Tim Burton-esque Wilson has but one mission in life: not starving. While the premise appears to be simple, you will find that you must do everything from following a herd of beefalo to collect their dung to cultivating a hive of bees around your campfire to not starve.
  • Pros: Quirky sandbox survival simulation, amazing art direction, high replayability, permadeath
  • Cons: Difficult to succeed without using outside guides
