Critic Reviews for Farworld Pioneers

Farworld Pioneers had a promising premise, mashing together ideas from other sci-fi survival favorites, but it simply doesn't fulfill that promise in any way. Unintuitive controls, poor AI, and a lack of show-and-tell for the game's various systems are likely to frustrate, rather than entertain you.

Farworld Pioneers has a long way to go to set itself apart from its predecessors. So many moving systems make the cracks from pretty early on in this Starbound, Terraria-like.

Farworld Pioneers takes elements of Terraria and RimWorld and turns it into a fun game. However, be warned, it will not hold your hand for very long and push you off a cliff before you're ready.

After you have put some hours into the game, Farworld Pioneers really comes to life. Buildings and elements get bigger and weapons get more extreme. You build almost entire castles that look futuristic. Your colony grows and enemies build up more, whether or not you have to work together more. However, for me this was already over fast because of the critical points of the game which really ruin it. On the PC the game was already a slightly problematic game, on the console it is literally chaos. The controls and gameplay are very bad, the graphics are cluttered and with hanging screens every now and then you are often afraid that the game will crash. Farworld Pioneers is therefore a game that you have to bite through and takes a lot of time to get to the good core of the concept.
