I enjoyed getting in to this at the beginning, although I quickly felt overwhelmed by the systems. It's a Mars survival game, and you have to manage manage crafting, power, oxygen, temperature, time, materials, weight, bag space, research, infection spread rate, hunger, thirst, fatigue, stamina, health statuses and a few more. I persevered for a bit but felt like I was fighting against the UI. Every time I wanted to do something I had to Google it as the in-game commands and help systems don't explain much. Probably good for someone in the right mood with patience, but I just got turned off by it, which is a shame because it looks like the depth is well done.
