It's interesting how two of the biggest genres in gaming at the moment are all about survival. Where battle royales are all about being the last person standing, the truer survival genre is all about persevering, and then thriving, against the odds.

Ark: Survival Evolved certainly fits into the latter category. It's about crafting, building, foraging, and all the other Bear Grylls fantasies that the genre thrives on. It has two aces up its simple cloth sleeves though.

Summary
Ark: Survival Evolved has some nice ideas, and it works surprisingly well on mobile, but it's still shackled by the problems of the genre
RATING
