Survival to the Max: A Dinosaur Survival Experience
Ark Survival Evolved is a unique survival game involving PVP, technology, and dinosaurs. While there are many popular survival games that exist, ARK definitely seems to stand out. Its dinosaur taming system and technology system gives the player a reason to want to advance in the game, and also makes ARK very different from most survival games. After all, most survival games don't allow you to tame a Giganotosaurus and ride it into a war with a giant rock monster!
While ARK is fun-filled, it is also very challenging. Any new player should definitely start learning to play the game on their own single player world, or a PVE server with their friends. If a new player starts on a PVP server, they should do it with friends and make sure to join a good tribe that will help them thrive in the game!
When first entering the game, you start half-naked and empty handed. You are starting in a mysterious and challenging world with literally nothing. You look around, and all you see is endless jungle, forest, or desert.
While getting started may be a little difficult, a new player's first step is to make themselves some tools. Punching a tree to get some thatch and wood, and collecting a few stones, is definitely the way to go when first entering the game.
After making yourself a good number of tools, it is important to get started with building a house and taming a few animals. This takes us to the taming system. ARK Survival Evolved has a very unique and fun taming system. Each and every dinosaur/animal is unique. While some animals can be tamed by simply knocking them out and feeding them, others have much harder taming techniques.
Overall, in my personal opinion, I think that ARK is definitely a game worth buying. Whether or not you want to purchase it is up to you and your game spending budget. While the game is fun-filled, here is a list of pros and cons that may help in any potential buyer's decision for buying the game:
