7.5 / 10.0

Don't Starve is a beautiful take on Minecraft's formula that ultimately left me feeling a bit too empty.

An interesting stew of ideas and great presentation can't make up for a game that goes out of its way to frustrate and discourage its players.

This brutal survival and crafting adventure delivers fun and punishment in equal measure.

We expected big things from the studio behind Mark of the Ninja and Shank, and in Don't Starve, we got them. It's a wonderfully dark survival-craft game with great scope for emergent, unique experiences, even if it will make you rage occasionally. The UI betrays the PC roots and can be a little hard to use on a smaller TV, and there are those who will find Don't Starve just too mean-spirited to fully appreciate, but as an intentionally unforgiving survival sim with a sinister twist, it absolutely excels.
