Title
A classic example of a game with good concepts that is held back by the developer's ability to release it unfinished with the "Early Access" label.
It's been a year since launch and the game is far from complete, often feeling empty or lacking in content; only made up for by it's overreliance on the mostly enjoyable, if not shallow, content that is there.

There is not much attempt to majorly separate it from 'The Forest' aside from overhauling already existing systems, so the cultural impact that game had on the 'Survival Crafting' genre is likely non-existent for Sons of The Forest.

I don't believe Endnight truly know what they want to do with this game; making it Early Access as a way to sidestep this issue and excuse baffling decisions on where to allocate resources. Electricity was one major update that serves no purpose, with almost no function, and having no impact on the gameplay loop. This describes many of the updates.
Meanwhile functionality of the major antagonists: Cannibals and Mutants, is near identical to launch; a force that is mostly used as a nuisance in the overworld, and in story caves can be completely ignored.

Just play a more fleshed out survival crafting game instead.

Title
Same thing as The Forest, gets boring after like 10 hours. Annoying antagonist. Atrocious inventory system and janky as fuck combat. But the graphics are stunning.

    I think I just need to wait until it's out of early access to fully enjoy it. I finished the game way too quickly.

    theres just not enough stuff in the game yet and the building system is kinda wack. like it feels strangely enough a lot more limiting than the first game despite being literally lego

      but god the environmental design is absolutely stunning its a blast to just fcking walk around. Insane improvement over the first game it's worth a lot of praise for just that even

    It's just not as focused as its predecessor. Everything looks better and everything is bigger, but its just feels like its lacking a lot of justification for there being long stretches of just nothing. I don't think "early access" is an excuse since originally this was slated for a full release but they backpedaled into early access as a safety net.

    Seems like they didn’t understand what made the original good. Didn’t seem like a concept that needed further iteration either. What a wash.
