I was a little unsure of what to expect with Miscreated when I first fired it up as I have played more than my fair share of survival-based games over the last couple of years. While I would not say that this is a perfect survival style of game, I will say that this is a great deal of fun and one that is well worth checking out.
The Final War
The Final War is where it all went wrong! The world has gone to hell and now you are in a fight for survival. Everything in this world wants you dead, there are other survivors, mutants and even the elements that you have to deal with. There is not exactly a ton of story here, but you do feel like you are playing a role in this world.
Exploration Is Key
One of the things that I really like about Miscreated is the world. This is a rather large open world, but it is not too large if that makes any sense. I like how diverse this world is for example, you can explore dense green areas and then there are more urban areas, there are even caves and other dark and scary places that will fill you with dread if you head into them.
I really liked exploring this world and a great example I can give you is when I was walking around this area and it was nice and clear, then it got grey and before long I was hiding in a house as a storm raged outside. It was a very cool effect and something that made me want to play the game even more.
Fight The Mutants…. And The People
The gameplay I know I have said is a survival-based game. However, I will say that there is a ton of action in this game. The shooting mechanics are great and, in that regard, it feels like a well-made first-person shooter. You will have to fight the mutants that have spawned in this world and even other survivors who want you dead or want what you have.
Another aspect of the game is not just about fighting mutants and people, but in crafting what you need to survive. One thing I like in this regard is how the game is not too stingy with the way it dishes out the loot. I never once felt like I had to grind a whole lot in order to get enough of one material to make a specific gun or something like that. This is the same for food! You need to be careful with what you eat as some of the stuff in this world is not fit to be eating. This is one area of the “survival” aspect of the game that I feel could have been toned down. Just grow your own food and make sure your meat is cooked and you will be fine!
I think that Miscreated is a really cool game and a game that I am surprised has not gotten more recognition. It may have a few technical issues here and there, but for the most part, I had a great time playing this game. It is certainly a game I can see many people sinking a ton of hours into that is for sure.
