Professional Review


The Forest is a first-person horror survival. It starts from the moment you come to your senses after the crash, and begin exploring the island. At first sight, it is uninhabited: there are no roads, just one impenetrable thicket, mountains, and ocean. There is nothing to eat. First of all, you need to go to the remains of the airliner and take from there all that is necessary - food and tools. Over time, the provision will end and you will have to procure food yourself.

Graphics — 5/5

The graphics component of the game The Forest is an excellent job of developers who tried to convey the atmosphere of the wild. Rains, and the coming storms, the wind, the regular distribution of day and night and other delights of the climate.

Qualitatively traced elements in The Forest and actions, several types of Aborigines, human guts and other delights of the action are really amazing.

Gameplay — 4.5/5

In the game, days follow nights. In the daytime, you gather supplies and rebuild a shelter, at night you warm yourself by the fire and hide from enemies. If the shelter is sturdy enough, you may even be able to sleep, just waiting for the night. If the fortress is not yet completed or the enemies have dealt damage to the walls, they will have to fight or hide in the night dusk.

Collecting items, building a base and fighting with opponents is the basis of balance in the game. At the same time, the author is going to keep the atmosphere of horror, and this makes him go to experiment with the interface.

Despite the impressive set of functions, The Forest practically lacks the traditional elements of the UI. So, let's say, there is no inventory, you see all the things you can carry yourself. Most of the actions are contextual. If you connect a long stick and a sharp stone, you sharpen the tip, creating a primitive spear. If you compare a short stick, a stone, and a rope, you will get a kind of similarity to an ax.

The game implements a complex ecosystem that dynamically reacts to your actions. So, if you cut down all the trees in some area, take out all the berries and edible plants, you just drain it. This problem is solved simply - it is necessary only to know the measure. Competent interference in the environment is one of the leading elements of the gameplay.

Controls — 4.5/5

Management is simple and sophisticated - this allows you to quickly get used to the game world of The Forest and take full advantage of the character's capabilities. Just use your mouse and the keyboard.  After you get to grips with the controls and learn how to create simple fire or shelters, you will be able to build advanced structures such as tree houses or log cabins.

Replay Value — 5/5

Elements of survival in The Forest are made in the standard style: these are searching for resources, building bonfires, building shelter and fighting with the aborigines. However, the main difference between the game and other survivors is that all this is served as a horror, and for each new game you can write a separate script for the movie. The gameplay is tied on the stealth, so any clash of foreheads with cannibals can end for the hero unpredictably. The game captures and tickles your nerves.

Conclusion

The Forest is the game definitely worth playing. You’ll have a remarkable experience after installing it and immersing into gameplay entirely. It captures you from the very first minutes and keeps you in suspense until the end. The visuals and sound will blow you away, the crafting system is in-depth, and the gameplay is immersive. New features appear constantly, and this fact keeps the community up-to-date.

Conclusion

The Forest is a great mix of the excellent visuals, gloomy music, and captivating crafting system. You’ll get a pure adrenaline rush while fighting with the terrifying cannibals hunting you down. You won’t regret joining this game.
