The Darwin Project is an unusual battle royale, with players acting as prisoners who participate in an experiment. Ten people are dropped off in the snowy mountains of Northern Canada. The main goal of the game, the same - to survive. That's just in Darwin Project survival is much more fun and interesting than in the same PUBG. Here there is crafting, and special skills, and pumping, and elements of survival, and much more. 

Stylistically Darwin Project is very reminiscent of Fortnite. There is no construction, but the battles between the players are very dynamic. The first thing that catches your eye is the detailed customization of the character. You can change clothes, colors, weapons skins, looks, hair, and much more. When the customization is complete, you can go into battle.

Darwin Project is kind of like The Hunger Games. At the beginning of the match, as in all "battle royale" games, players gather in the lobby. There can be a maximum of 10 participants. In order not to get bored, you can jump and fight here.

When the fight begins, the player simply teleported to a random point on the map without much foreplay. The map itself is divided into zones, and the safe area will decrease in the course of the game. After disembarking, the most interesting part begins.

The fact is that in Darwin Project you don't have to search for weapons and equipment at home. Every character has a two-handed ax and bow by default. But the arrows for the bow and equipment will have to get in the game or to craft.

Items of equipment can be obtained from the chests, which are found on the map, or create. To do this you will need skin. It can be obtained by killing deer with a bow or ripping off the leather furniture, which for some unknown reason also appeared in the snowy forest. Also, by killing deer, you can get, for example, a fur cape.

In the main menu, you can set up the so-called Kraft Wheel. In the Craft Wheel, all pre-selected crafts and abilities are available. This brings us smoothly to the main know-how.

In Darwin Project, the character has 2 parameters - health and temperature. Since the action takes place in the snowy Canadian mountains, the hero is affected by the cold. If he gets cold, he will start losing his health. To get warm, you can put the tent on and make a fire.

It is also interesting that all players leave traces in the snow. You can easily track down the other players by their footprints.

Conclusion

Overall, the game is interesting, but it reeks of some "non-seriousness". If in PUBG you have to play cautiously, take altitude, control crossings, and lay in ambushes, then the gameplay in Darwin Project is just fun chopping on axes and bows. Of course, there are detailed victory statistics in the game, but it is unlikely that among the adult audience there is someone who cares even a little bit about it. Therefore, Darwin Project is worth playing only as a fun recreational game.
