There is a good 6 of us here at the office that all play it regularly it is fun if you can find yourself with a fun little group of people. Definitely has some solid content to enjoy as an early access and at this price it can definitely provide enough enjoyment to fulfill the costs. Really relies on you finding a group to play with though as just an individual it loses some of its entertainment value

Also while it's on sale grab Scorched Earth, allows you to set it up as it's own instances you and can portal back and forth between them. Tons of fun!

I plan on setting up a private server with friends, so botters won't get to me!

I've been playing since the beginning. I love the game, and I am confident that the devs will work out the kinks. It's a fun game.

Fun game but you literally won't have a life.the devs have not fixed the issues in this game and basically ruined it by not having the servers region locked so after you wake up you will find everything you work so hard for gone and there is not a damn thing you can do about it unless you stay up to defend

I just started playing it a few days ago and it's rough at first but if you're cool most people will leave you alone if you find a decent server.. you run around punching people and trolling and they'll lock you up in a cage for half the day.

The other day some dude punched me, so I clubbed him and threw him into the river to drown.

Buy the bundle which includes scorched earth for $16.73 http://store.steampowered.com/bundle/2167/

Been playing about a month and the game is fun. Early Access WITH A PAID EXPANSION?!? WHAT? anyway, the game is worth the price, BUT you will need a decent setup to run it. I had a GTX480 which never gave me any issues with any games before. Most recently I got into 7 Days to Die and no problems. With ARK I kept getting crashes and having issues, I went and upgrade to a 6GB 1060 and it runs great.

I have to say that last week our official server we played on (and quite a few others) went down and were unavailable from Monday to Friday and the only acknowledgement was a Known server outage page on the forums where they only listed the server names. No insight as to why or if they were working it or anything. Their community team ignored twitter and forum questions and overall they just didn't seem to care about the player experience. This caused some of our stuff to deteriorate and be destroyed (lost multiple auto turrets full of ammo and some tames) because we couldn't log in for 5 days. They don't care.
Also lag on official servers can be pretty bad. there is a bit of rubber banding and lag spikes where you just can't do anything for 10-30 seconds or more. Seems to be heavier when people are transferring toons, inventory and dinos into the server from another server (which can be done by anyone through many points on an originating server).

So when you can play and if you have a rig that will play it, it is fun. I play to play with my friends and enjoy PvP (full world PvP - nothing is safe, bodies structures, dinos... nothing).

Do note that it is a persistent world and when you log off, your body falls limp where you stand. People can attack you, go through your inventory and rob you, or drag you anywhere they want... and dinos can eat you. I won't go into being raided by a big alpha from another server here.
