  3. This game deserves 7 at most just for the amount of bugs, horrible optimization and the devs make more and more DLC instead of fixing the darn game.

  4. Wait wait wait….. How the ever-loving ark do you get something stuck so bad you have to kill it to enter the inventory? Sure, ARK had always been broken, but how does that happen? SO much wrong with that sentence. I'm voting right now. Shenanigans on that statement, lying reviewer.

  5. I love how all the top comments are all about how bad it is when the only reason they're saying it is because they've never played the game, can't afford a pc to run it, or have only played for a few hours then rage quit. The game is amazing and this review was trash, so are most of these comments.

  6. It took me about 8 months to decide whether to buy this game. When I did, boy I was missing out. This game is AMAZING. Sure, there's a grind element, but it's almost therapeutic. Besides, if you're playing on your own server you can just up the loot drops to make everything that extra bit quicker.

    There's a few bugs here and there but for the most part I've had a super clean experience. If you're in the same situation I was in, unsure whether to buy… BUY!

  7. Bad Dino AI? What do you think Dino’s do? They kill that’s all the AI is suppose to do (well carnivores anyways others just roam around it’s not perfect but hey there dinosaurs you aren’t expecting much from them
    Edit: ok so I see what you mean the Dino AI isn’t the best but I kinda like it

  8. Nice honest review, I knew the game was going to be disappointing the moment I heard guns been mentioned in a prehistoric game.

  9. For people who dont like grinding custom servers gather rate and taming the ones I go for are 100 from anything i hit not in one hit tho and 30 mins or an hour at max and its pve

  10. I cannot believe this game my son has spent over a hundred hours on this game only to have people take his stuff and have to start over again and again.and can't tame anything.worst game ever.

  11. My tribe used to be a notorious pirate gang. We would have. A fleet of 5 ships, and would often raid other tribes who set up their base on the shore. Our strategy would for two ships to launch missiles at their walls, and the other three would be landing our men to raid their bases. We would be in and out of there so fast, that other tribes wouldn't have enough time to arm themselves. But it all fell apart when our tribe decided to settle on land. Our bases were destroyed and the rest of the tribe split apart, by often going over to another tribe.

    When that happened I decided to quit the game.
