Its a Newman Hall style, eat every 5 minutes, bash your buddies skull with a rock, while wondering while your so dam tired game that everyone loves. Now with the added grief of pokeymen.. i mean dinosaurs. This one takes it one step farther and adds skill/leveling system that allows direction increases of skills. Additionally players are awarded points to unlock blueprints for crafting. While death robs you of all your loot you still keep your experience and blueprints. Did i mention dinosaurs? Yes it has dinosaurs and by some chance if you manage to knock one out you can force feed it in an effort to tame it. Now not only do you have to worry about your self but now your big pet that will surely attract attention to your camp site. Hold up kids, not everything is lollipops and gumdrops. Every BrokenAccess™ game is riddled with bugs and/or other issues. This one is no exception, not only does it have even more performance issues than day z did when it was first released as a mod, but its also a major resource hog. So don't even bother purchasing unless your willing to risk a 14GB slide show. I'm using a Radeon 7850 2GB on a FX-8350 and have no issues, however your mileage may vary and i do turn off motion blue and set shadows to low.
Not having even told anyone there is already a small population of human predators on the server that i have no clue as to their origin. But, i'm sure if you play on it at some point you will get killed and loose all your stuff. Most likely by another player, bug, npc or all of the above.

I found the best method of actually getting into a hosted server is to load the game then open the server list in steam, right click on the server and choose "Connect to Server".
For an even easier experience, add the server to your favorites so you don't have to filter out the right one.
As always, Life guards are not on duty and swim at your own risk. Broken Access Servers are full of bugs are you should expect there to be problems.
