The Forest Review
Like the misbegotten love child of Silent Hill and Minecraft, The Forest is a surprising and altogether fascinating hybrid of survival horror and crafting, set in an open world that is full of potential. Like the semi-human cannibals that stalk the player, The Forest is another example of mutant game DNA that splices some now very familiar genres together into a sum that is better than its parts.
Conan Exiles Review
With dozens of open world survival/crafting games crowding the market, any new entry needs a strong hook and distinct identity.

The title suggests a Frank Frazetta painting come to life in all its hyper-masculine, brutal glory.
