I am not cut out for open world survival games which is the reason for my low score. I do recommend this for hardcore survival gamers. There is no tutorial and the only way to learn the mechanics of the game is to read the manual at the menu. I played solo just to get a sense of the game and was unable to enter the PvP and PvE servers as they were full. Even though I spawned at an area marked as easy, my first encounter was with a Lvl 15 dino that can shoot poison. As soon as you spawn you have to always be on the move and gather materials quickly to defend yourself or die. Despite my experience the game has awesome graphics and mechanics since you can tame and ride some dinos.

fun survival game, filled with big dino. crafting and building is ok too, but since there's supernatural or alien thing involved it's not really what im looking for

Solid and definitely has an audience. There could be some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.

Ark: Survival Evolved is a good game that gets bogged down by an over-abundance of ancillary features, frustrating bugs, and a horrendous grind. It can be intimidating for new players and playing with friends online is more important than ever. But if you can get past the rough edges and dig into the prehistoric survival fun that makes Ark so special, there is an entirely unique game here that’s unlike anything else you’ll play.

A bloated, grindy mess, but so packed with options that a better game is hidden inside it.
