I came into The Survivalists with high hopes, being such a fan of The Escapists. Sadly I came away from my time with it underwhelmed. There’s certainly fun to be had, and the feel of Escapists is here is parts, but some of the elements, such as the lack of storage space when out exploring, kept bringing my experience further down the longer I played. Here’s hoping Team 17 can bring me back in with the eventual (please) Escapists 3.
Despite these issues, The Survivalists on Xbox One is a very enjoyable experience. Its gameplay feels a bit like Don’t Starve, and its monkey system a bit like Factorio. But above all else, its charm and general aesthetic is all its own.
Would I Recommend The Survivalists? It’s hard to answer the above question. In its’ current state, I wouldn’t. The premise of The Survivalists is promising, but it simply lacks depth. Unless it’s on sale, The Survivalists will set you back a little over £20. It’s a nice game to kill time, perfect for the casual gamer, but isn’t quite worth the price tag.
