i bought this game because my friend ask me to, i dislike horror game actually, cause i'm to afraid to play it, but when you play it with friends, it's not that scary, hahahaa

gameplay is good i guess, crafting items and building from a simple home to a fortress in forest, raw material is abundant, combat is... so so... story is quite good actually, big island to survive and there's no digital map, an item as a map and a compass (if you can find it)

explore, hunt and collect raw material, build your defense and try to survive at night, really well played with friends, play alone at you own risk

Only few games can give me the heebie-jeebies. That would Silent Hill, Forbidden Siren, and this bad boy. The Forest is one of the scariest games out there and I am sure you'll love it. Perhaps it is because the game is something that could happen in real life. Plane crash, stranded on an unknown island, starving and afraid and stalked by the deadly mutants on the island. It's possible. Well, except for the deadly mutants.

If you have a weak heart, do not play this game alone. All in all, if you wanna test your bravery, then knock yourself out with this game.

It's one of the best survival games I've played in recent memory. Whether I was creeping my way through the woods alone at night or playing with friends during the day and showing the local residents who the true masters of their domain are, I haven't played anything like this that's been so fun and terrifying all-in-one in a long, long time.

For those who want co-op delights, a multiplayer mode exists. The mode more or less breaks the game, putting the odds overwhelmingly in your favor when it comes to squaring off against adversaries. But that doesn’t mean it’s not fun, as you and your pal can get up to a number of dark-yet-wacky shenanigans as you romp around. Just don’t expect to be scared nearly as much.

It’s I Am Legend told in the depths of the hinterlands, with a meaningful story progression that doesn’t overstay its welcome. Disregard the warnings on the walls and hidden between the trees at your own peril – and if you want a unique and memorable survival horror experience, then you should absolutely dare to do so.
