Fun, Addicting, EntertainingThe game is fun and addicting. There is a ton of crafting and mining that is involved in the game. The drawback is that there are items you don't know what to do with without looking them up online. IE: the birds nest that you get, you have to click (x on it PS4 version) and it will give you a prize of some sort. I had to look it up when my wife asked me what do you do with the nests. Otherwise, the game is great. We have 2 copies as my wife and I both play on different consoles.

Good potential, poorly realized gameplayThis was a game that at first glance I thought I would love. I'm a huge fan of Stardew Valley and Havest Moon type of games. The problem with this game is, for one, it has very long load times between screens, it has draw-in issues such as things popping up or disappearing for no reason, and the game update that Playstation downloaded for it, only made these problems worse. Also, it the game, you are required to take commissions to build things for money. Well, good luck. The game gives no hint what to do to make that happen, and early on, the blueprints for commissions require skills you don't have or don't know how to make happen. The game gives no help on how to achieve the results you need, so right away, it's quite frustrating and unfulfilling to play. For example, once you manage to make a few basic tools, you're required to rebuild a bridge as one of your first commissions. The bridge requires copper tubing. Well, you can find copper ore, you can smelt it into bars. How to make it into tubing is never explained. You need a "civil cutter" for the lumber. What the @#$# is that? It's not listed anywhere and none of the shops in town sell such a thing. So, frankly, after two days of play I was completely turned of and disinterested. A game that feels more like frustration, work and failure, is not much of a game as far as I'm concerned. Some might find the game fun and interesting, to me it just isn't the kind of game I would like to spend my time playing.
