No doubt, Don't Starve will split opinion squarely down the middle, but for those willing to put the man hours in it there's undoubtedly a proverbial treasure throve of depth at hand. Either way, Klei Entertainment's offering is a refreshingly robust and intriguing title which sets the wheels of Sony's PS4 indie proclamation firmly in motion.

We like

  • An unparalleled amount of depth.

  • Grinding can initially be tedious.
  • Difficulty spikes can be disheartening.
