REVIEW: Unturned on Xbox One

Review by Jon Donnis
In Unturned you take upon the role of a survivor who has been dropped into a post-apocalyptic world full of Zombies, your job is simple, to survive. You need to seek out food, clothes and weapons, as well as collect wood and metal to create defences. As you progress through the game you will be able to upgrade your character to give you the very best chance of survival.

Unturned has been out a few years on PC but has finally made its way to the consoles.

The game includes huge maps, 8 in total. And although it has what I would call a pretty basic single player offline mode, this is a game to be played online and even better with friends.

The graphics are erm.... simple, reminiscent of some of the Lego games or Minecraft, with characters having square heads. Despite the cutesy looks of the game, I imagine this game is aimed firmly at the 30-50 year old male. So not for young kids.

The Good
The maps are huge, large areas to explore, and if open world sandbox games are you thing, then this game will keep you busy for a long, long time.

The Bad
The graphics just didn't impress me, I understand they are made to look like that on purpose, the whole Minecraft/Roblox world of crappy graphics being the in thing at the moment, but for me they didn't quite work.

Overall
You may have picked up that I didn't enjoy this game, and you would be right. A few hours of wondering about bored me senseless. But then I am not a fan of this type of game, I simply do not have 8 hours a night to sit and play such slow games. With that said, this game is insanely popular on PC, and has hundreds of thousands of positive reviews. So, there is clearly a market for this type of game out there. Will it cut it on console? I am not sure, console gamers tend to be a bit different to PC gamers.

Check out the video below, it is from a gamer who plays the game for the first time and gives his opinions, and if you like these types of games then give it a shot, but if you are more of a typical console gamer like me then perhaps this game is not for you.
