Early feelings of frustrations aside, Surviving Mars offers numerous challenges and satisfying feelings of success with each play through. Definitely not a one and done kind of game, the replay value is quite high. Surviving Mars is well worth the investment if you fancy city builders, and both Paradox Interactive and Haemimont Games have experience on their side.
Ideally, players should try to experience Surviving Mars on the PC, but the Xbox One version is a fine substitute. In any case, they are treated to a very impressive simulator that rewards expert resource-management. The emphasis on automated drones helps to streamline all of the menial tasks, leaving players plenty of time to focus on constructing the perfect colony.
The nicely rendered and geographically accurate game world throws enough at you to keep you almost permanently on your toes, and the few moments of peace and efficiency are so rare that they immediately instill a false sense of security that inevitably leads to panic when Mars does what Mars does. But once you manage to get to grips with the many mechanics and, possibly, find a kind of harmony between the gathering, building, and keeping people alive, Surviving Mars reveals a solid, rewarding sim.
