This Is Not A Review: Astroneer

Welcome to This is Not a Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Astroneer, developed and published by System Era Softworks, and available in early access on both PC and Xbox One.

HIGH Any of the overwhelming boss fights against huge foes.

LOW A glitch that left me unable to drop the person I was carrying.

WTF No, I’m the idiot for not realizing I was supposed to make a battleaxe at the loom.
