Factorio reviewed by Leana Hafer on PC.

Factorio is great PC game that slipped through our review net by being in early access from 2016 (before we reviewed early access games) until 2020. Now, since we had a little time on our hands over the holidays, we sent our reviewer back in to rectify that and put a review on the books.

@Kommentator Wow! it's been early access for that long! They must have added tons of stuff! I've never played it, but it has been on my watch list for years! I just need to make time for it before I buy.

the real problem here is that for ign standards, a score of 8 is considered low ( due to the massive amount of garbage that gets 9's and 10's ).

In no way is this an 8, you played the game for about 10 hours and didn't even finish it. This is an insult to wube software. This game is nearly flawless with amazing support and hours of content. Not to mention the very large modding community with plenty of amazing mods available. From what I'm seeing, you have no clue how to actually play the game, as no large scale automation or production was created. At least do a full playthrough before you rate a game.

"futuristic super-hero" You play an alien invader murdering hundreds of sentient native creatures just defending their home. It sounds less like you're the super-hero and more like you're the super-villain.

An 8 out of 10 is insulting. Why? This game is one of the best that I (and many others) have ever played. Just look at the 98% positive rating on steam, the really great devs and community, and the ATOMIC BOMBS that you can craft in bulk later in the game. This game deserves a 10/10 hands down.

To all the people hating on this review, I agree that the game deserves a 10, not an 8, but can we at least appreciate that the reviewer at least somewhat acknowledges how intricate and well put together the game is? Also, to anyone watching the review and reading the comments who doesn't have the game: get it. Its an absolute masterpiece and is absolutely worth your time. IGN tried their best here but didn't quite hit the mark when talking about satisfying it is to play and progress

Dude, IGN reviewed the game as 8/10 == “Great”. And you don’t need to be an expert at a game to review it. You just need to play it enough to create an informed opinion. I love that there are hardcore players who are really into this game because it’s the kind of game that lets you think and grow as a person. Just realize you’re really biased because you love this game. IGN reviewed the game as “great” not “ok”. And an IGN review of “great” puts this indie game on the map in a much bigger way. It’s not all or nothing. Spread the love of the game.

Honestly I think the "trial and error" way of learning is perfect for this game, so you can develop your own personal style of factory. Even if it takes many hours, it's the point of the game to learn along the way and make the next one better . Of course you can watch tutorials and look at the wiki but it should not be your first approach! Look at the wiki just to understand the mechanics of the game, not the tutorials that say "If you do it like this it works!" because then you will loose all the fun of creating that setup.

You gave Factorio an 8/10, when it, until Hades sat at #2 in Steam reviews, yet you gave CP 2077 PC a 9/10 and it has a 78% positive not to mention that EVEN ON PC it is a broken mess. Before I get accused of being an irate fan boy, I do get it. Factorio is not for everyone. One of my biggest complaints is that the transition to mid game is brutally repetitive and tedious at times. But once you know how the systems work you can sort of fast track certain things to get personal robots for example and then the sky is the limit. I would mention you can cheat and get early bots mods, but this is about the vanilla game. I guess that is mentioning it... If you can't get through the fundamentals of this game without going to tutorials, then maybe it isn't for you. The brilliance of Factorio comes from the fact that you can get by with a fairly lazy approach. You can play that way and launch a rocket and "win" or you can learn all of the nuances, become and expert, and create a well oiled and perfectly optimized 18,000 science per minute monster. Point is, IGN has a knack for what seems to be an RNG approach to who reviews a game. This person sounds like someone who normally plays COD and maybe dabbled in some Cities Skylines.

I agree with this review. You have to go check online how the game works and it's very obtuse at times. The visuals are also too weak to give this a 10/10 like people say.

His colleague didn’t feel like playing much, it seems. Besides, I really don't understand why it's only 10/8. There is not even a similar mood game on the market. What’s more, so many quality and ever-expanding mods come with it. For me 10/11 Finally; pixel wut?
Shane Wamsley
Shane Wamsley Prije 4 dana
I really like the early game of Factorio and I think it's well balanced for new players (although you should do the tutorials first) but once you have a few thousand hours in this game you start thinking about anything before white science as early game (Actually called space science but it's white so... also technically the goal of the game is to launch a space rocket and you only get white science AFTER that). Really great game though, 10/10 and I have been playing since 0.10. Also worth pointing out how awesome the dev team are, I watched in real time this morning on reddit when a player reported a bug with a mod in the latest experimental build and it was fixed in an hour. And that's not unusual. I've also watched livestreams of multiplayer games where the devs join and troubleshoot issue with the players, and then stay to play...

Real score: 10 I do not thing the guy doing the review is on the right mood, It is like puting a person that only plays FPS to review a turn based RPG. Did the reviewer even launched a rocket? Factorio is not for everyone, it is a somewhat niche thing. This should be clear in the review.

Huh, they were actually pretty fair with the review here, that's a surprise. Then again I haven't launched my first rocket yet and haven't truly delved into all the unique stuff you can do yet so that's probably why I think the review is fair while others don't. I'm just happy he didn't rate it something dumb like a 4/10 for being too confusing for the first few hours.

To be fair, a very difficult game to review. It's like marmite. If you like it, you like it a lot. Otherwise you hate. If this is your niche (complex word building, survival...) It's a 10. Otherwise you will play 15 minutes and abandon it.

Rating is pretty accurate. This game has no tutorial or explanation for everything beyond trains and once you have finished the game you dont really feel like playing it again, unless you want to get every achievement... which were easier than I though to get. The enemies are also nothing to exciting and you get bored of them quite quickly. It is a really great game but it is definitely not a masterpiece.

The issue is that when he said 40 hours I thought it was not bad, but then I checked out my saves and my very first save has only 4 hours, compare this to my latest save at already 140 hours. The more you understand and know about the game the more you play it, so don't judge it to early and give it time, think about why you were overrun by biters and what you could have done better. I put so many hours outside of the game only thinking about designs and trying to design better blueprints. But the greatest thing about Factorio was not mentioned here, the mods and the community. Just look at the comments here and check out the forums and reddit pages. You will be welcomed.

I can understand that that these "professional" writers have a time quota and cant have the luxury or to dive deep into all publications, but this just screames LACK OF EFFORT.

You can totally do a "complete playthrough" (launch a rocket) in 30, 40 hours depending on what you focus on. But it's a sandbox, so it's like killing the dragon in Minecraft: finishing the game can be just the beggining. If you enjoyed launching the rocket, you will enjoy keep playing or starting a new factory with everything you've learned, or installing mods that completely rework the game and have more content than the original game itself
