Saurian reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Early Access Review It's certainly far too early to make a real Judgement here. Most depends heavily on how the Game develops, because, and this cannot be stressed often enough (!), it is a Pre-Alpha! Currently, the Dakotaraptor, one of a total of 6 Dinosaurs later, Is playable (Dakotaraptor, T Rex, Triceratops, Pachycephalosaurus, Anzu and Ankylosaurus). One starts as a newly hatched Hatchling and tries to survive via Juvenile and Subadult to the adult Animal. Not An easy Undertaking at the moment, as the Game world is not yet populated with a lot of Animals. Various Abilities, such as Sniffing small Prey, jumping on And Keystroke at the Prey, are helpful for finally getting through. Everything in the Game is modeled and modeled according to the current State of Science. The Devs are in Contact with a large Number of well-known Scientists, who provide all the Information and bless the Final Results. Specialists for The Fauna and Flora of the time, even for the Weather and the Catastrophes of The Time, guarantee An ultimately believable gaming experience, even if this fits only into our Image shaped by Jusassic Park and Action Monsters. For example, the feathered Rex without braised teeth is a very unusual Sight. But the World will have to get used to it. Weeds, alas, is only peculiar to man, of course, that doesn't go without modesty and Meettle, and equips people who are desperately clinging to their Hollywood monsters. What we would be with when it comes to The Technical Of the Game! Graphically, the Game is even more modest. Unfortunately, the lack of Grass at that time underlines this even more. The Environment looks far from bad, just to see that something else needs to be turned on the optical Quality Screw here, and will certainly be! The Same applies to the AI of the NPC dinos, because it can only be described as underground at the moment. I have always Believed that a Game like Saurian will stand and fall with his AI, so one can only hope that especially here will be greatly improved in the Course of Development. Certainly, however, the current AI is meant only as a rudimentary EA AI in order to offer the Player at least some of the necessary Life in the World. The Controls, too, present themselves somewhat sponging, which makes hunting and Fighting a little a bit of a Gamble. Here, too, there is certainly a rework being carried on. However, the partly imensen Spikes every few Seconds prove to be particularly disturbing. Presumably when Reloading the Game world. This, I have to say, is definitely a Factor that clouds the fun of The Game very much. Here I would recommend improvements as quickly as possible! On the Whole, with everything to see and do in the Game at the Moment, however, I would like to say that for Dino Lovers here after the 2 planned years of development, a Dream Game is sure to come out. Especially since Very interesting Features are to come. Weather, Disasters, Multiplayer, End-time mode and customize the Appearance of your own Favorite, are probably the Main Points that should be mentioned. I give the Game an absolute Buy recommendation here. I don't think you should go here after what's going on or not going at this Moment. You should think a lot more if you want to have a great Dinosaur game or not. If so, you must always have in Mind that every single Purchase does its Part, that Saurian best can be developed with great Features. To tear up The Game now and not to buy it in order to press the Sales Figures, then end up standing as a great Guy and saying, "Did I say!" Shows at most remarkable Short-sightedness, not great expertise. This is especially said in the Direction of ' The Isle ' players! With almost 1000 Hours Of playing time I have seen a Lot of ' The Isle ' and thus know from experience that even in the Game not everything was Gold, and still is not! In addition, it shows extreme Ignorance to compare this two Game now, where Saurian grade has only gone into EA and Has gone through 2 Years of Development since then. In Forums and especially in Reviews ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ to give the Place deer for The Isle Just because the Competition does not suit you is more than just inappropriate, if not pure-cool!! All the more so because the two Games alone belong to two completely different Genres. I also like to play The Isle and a lot, but stay fair and give both a Chance, I do anyway. At The Earliest, when both Games are ready, you may be able to start discussing.
