    "Pretty addicting if you ask me, the intriguing story plus the amazing game mechanics will add this game to my personal list of "unfinished games due to sidequesting". NGL, I feel sorry for the character's son, being stuck in that underground lab while his dad goes and deforests the entire island LMAO"

    "Cannibals on a deserted island usually spell "gorefest" for me, not a horror game with creepy-ass tribesmen. And if you think you've gotten used to it, prepare thine self for the sewn-together bodies of people, walking around like a muh'ffin spider and making noises that would keep you awake at night. Overall, this game is PERFECTLY executed, despite what the other guy below me says."

    "This is an interesting game that has you defending against zombie as well as watching out for attacks from other players. The dread that you will have until you hear that terrifying and piercing scream every 30 minutes is worth it."

    "Very atmospheric and tense. I'm not very into horror games... Playing alone is fine when I'm in the mood, but while playing co-op makes things a little lighter, it was really fun navigating through the game's dark environment, especially with a friend. Solo and multiplayer are both fine, but I definitely had the most fun playing multiplayer."

    "This is not gore or ''ZOMBIE'' horror game, most people who have commented here havent play the game in serious way or understanded what it really is about. Without giving away spoilers im just gonna say its an awesome game, medium sized open world and great storyline that you have to figure out by urself or with ur friends. Its worth 14.95 trust me!"

    "This game looks good. I am huge fan of survival horror games, including the classic Resident Evil series. This game reminds me a lot of the movie The Descent. The scene where you traverse the caves and light up a flare revealing the mutants around you is certainly a scary surprise. "

    "The scary part comes in when you realize that your fear of being alone is triggered. I personally have that phobia and perhaps it gets triggered knowing the fact that the game makes me the only survivor of a plane crash and the scary part comes in when cannibal creatures would that would attempt to deceive you that they are harmless would suddenly attack you randomly during the day!! This is a survival game so develop your skills very well!"

    "The Forest is a hugely popular game that allows players to experience the game through the eyes of a lone survivor of a plane crash, and must work to survive against the creatures of the forest. It offers both single player and multiplayer experiences, and offers tons of hours of entertainment. I really enjoyed this game when it released."

    "The graphics are far better than what Minecraft currently has to offer. I also feel that there is more survival in this game than in Minecraft. The creativity seems limited, however, in that I don't feel there are likely to be as many "building blocks""

    "It looks rather simplistic at first but it's really a fun game of survival in a place where you're the intruder. I especially liked that you didn't necessarily know what's around the corner so it kept me in suspense wondering what I would be encountering next. Recommended."

The game is only getting more and more features added in to make it even better than before. CYou can play with friends which is a good thing because it's too scary to play alone!"

    "'The Forest' is still in development with fixes or upgrades to apply a couple of times a month. Some are quite extensive which left me wanting to start over. It has amazing graphics and is quite dark. Those who like this genre will surely find this intriguing and worth being in at the start of what may become a viral series. Personally, the living dead aren't 'my thing' and I'm suspecting I will lose interest sooner rather than later."

    "I understand this game was made by only 4 people but they seriously should have done more testing to make sure their minimum system requirements were based in reality. I bought this game because it was supposed to dark and intense, not laggy and blurry and I was closer to the recommended requirements. "

    "As the survivor of a plane crash on an uncharted peninsula, you must use nature and the tools you scavenge to build bases and defenses against the native cannibals while looking for the missing passengers and your son. Open world with single player or online two player. Players must maintain hunger, thirst, warmth and optionally sanity."
