To Buy, Or Not To Buy, That Is The Question...
I've played the demo a long long time ago, possibly some time early last year, and decided to revisit because frankly the game didn't have much at that stage, and I wasn't overly impressed by the demo, although I did like the general concept and gameplay, just there wasn't enough there to entice me in.
Now, I'm a big survival buff. I love survival games, Unreal World being one of my favorites and a game I consider to be the best in the series of survival games. However Neoscavenger was a more modern take on it. It reminded me of Wasteland/Fallout, but with improved elements.
What I didn't like was the impression that the game world in Neo was relatively small, and the creature content extremely limited to simply bandit/dogmen, and the interaction/looting wasn't that overly impressive.
After catching up on the blog posts, I can see a lot of stuff has been added. New looting/scavenging mechanics and crafting, along with a city I believe, quests and that...
So what I want to know is, how in-depth has the gameplay gotten? Is the world of Neoscavenger big/bigger? Is there much to do? Has it become linear with the quests or is it open-ended? Has it become more pure survival or is it simply a scavenging simulator? Essentially I'm asking for an honest non-biased review of the game because the demo left a bad impression (not too bad though).
