There are some great ideas in Darwin Project, but it's far too shallow to keep them interesting in the long term.
Darwin Project isn’t an also-ran, it’s a trendsetter, and anyone still interesting in dropping in hot should take notice.
Darwin Project is a fun and bold twist on the battle royale genre which doesn't take itself too seriously. Grab your bow, your axe and getting out there swinging.
The Darwin Project is a fun experiment with some solid ideas, but doesn't quite feel fleshed out or feature-rich enough to entirely recommend without caveat.
Darwin Project takes the battle royale formula and turns it on its ear with simple survival mechanics and visceral axe combat.
While Darwin Project seems to lack the staying power of other franchises, it’s certainly worth a few tries before the inevitable decline in players that was seen with the release of the PC version come to pass.
There are times where its hard to understand and figure out, but that’s OK. It’s a really good game to get you into the genre.
Darwin Project is a breath of fresh air in the battle royale space and has a lot of good ideas. It's still missing key elements such a battle pass and different gameplay modes.
The Darwin Project is an alright battle royale title, it does some unique things while having a fairly streamlined crafting system that feeds into minimal elements of survival.
