About

The Long Dark is a game about surviving in the unforgiving conditions of frozen North Canadian taiga. The Arctic wilderness may be breathtakingly beautiful, thanks to the game’s artful visual style, but it is also deadly. Low temperatures, hungry animals like wolves and bears, and starvation can easily kill your character. To stay alive, he will need to learn how to light a campfire, find shelter, care about his wounds, hunt for food and protect himself in an unfriendly environment. Many necessary items in the game, including some of the weapons, need to be crafted out of the junk that you can find in the woods and in abandoned buildings.
In the story mode, called Wintermute, you control a pilot, Will Mackenzie, who was hired by his ex-wife Astrid to deliver a mysterious cargo. Eventually, his plane crashed in the woods. Will is injured, and Astrid is missing, presumably lost somewhere in the wilderness. Your goal is to survive and to rescue your companion. Wintermute follows a linear plot and only allows you to explore a limited area. However, it is recommended to start with, since it serves as a sort of tutorial to the open-world sandbox mode. This is the most popular mode, in which you are not confined to the plot and can discover new areas.

The single-player mode is awful. It’s bugged, like when the game wants me to avoid the wolf but doesn’t let me do it (WTF, really) and I die and die again. It’s not the only broken section but this wolf problem pissed me off. I don’t like graphics either, there is no multitask, so you can do only one thing at a time, what is completely useless and irrational when you need to boil water and do something else at the same time. The gameplay in general is not perfect too. Two thing are done great, though: the soundtrack and the survival mode. That’s it - and it’s not enough.
Much better than other survival games now because free of stereotypes. It’s just a man against the wild, without supernatural monsters hiding in the dark. Differents level of difficulty make the game enjoyable for everyone, either you want just to craft something in the woods or go kill all the wolves around. In fact, you can choose what to fight - your own needs or outer threatens. 
Playing since Early Access, The Long Dark has become one of my favorite video game experiences of all time. Now, I have to admit that I tend to like games and films that feature great atmospherics and a sense for the beauty of nature. The Long Dark is kind of the antithesis to the power fantasy: You're just a small, black speck in a sea of blinding white or impenetrable darkness, and your chances of survival are slim. If you manage to endure, though, this game is able to offer one of the most immersive, punishing and at the same time tranquil experiences you'll ever have playing a game. The calm, when you wander through a snow-covered forest, every step softly crunching beneath your feet. The panic, when the weather suddenly turns, night falls and you realize you've been walking in circles. The relief, when you finally happen to glimpse, just barely, the contours of a hut through the blizzard, and you manage to just. Get. In. There's nothing like it.
Скучно. Вроде бы красиво, атмосферно, сурвайвл система интересная, но не цепляет.
