ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile is one of those mobile titles that you really want to spend time on. This is a game that pretty much distances previously developed titles for better and worse. The game is something that ARK fans would enjoy as long as their phones can play it, or it can be a good starting point if you want to introduce the world of ARK to new players.
At the same time though, it's definitely just another first-person survival game. Sure there are a few new ideas here, and the dino-farming and tribe-joining add a couple of interesting layers, but if you're sick of wearing animal skin and hacking down trees with bodged together pick-axes, there's nothing here that's going to bring you back into the fold.
However, it is not a perfect fit and fails to replace Crashlands as mobile survival game of choice. Ark has its merits, chief among them being the fancy 3D graphics, well-executed cooperative gameplay and an intriguing plot that involves everyone’s childhood favourite – dinosaurs. Yet, for the less persistent, even the stupendous prospect of riding a giant pterodactyl into battle, with your flamethrower primed, just isn’t going to be reward enough for the hours of slog that it entails.
