With an absolutely scathing review like this and it still gets a 2, what has to happen to warrant a 1?! As in, you put in in your console and it just doesn't work. Navigate the galaxy as you blast through a space armada of fishy themed enemies, create unique attack strategies with your team, upgrade your ships, and explore the solar system to find a challenging secret ending! There's a problem loading this menu right now. Unfortunately, this new mashup of styles simply isn’t very enjoyable to play, and though it may look rather pretty, PixARK proves to be a weak and unmemorable attempt at riding on the coattails of much better games. ARK: Survival Evolved is hard to recommend on two fronts. I didn't think this could be worse than the normal version of ARK Survival, but they somehow did it. Then again, he does not care for 60fps or lack luster menus, he is happy he can ride and fly on Dino’s.
In its current state, PixARK on the Switch is a poorly optimized, unenjoyable, and otherwise weak approximation of the Minecraft experience that in no way delivers value equivalent to the money you’re paying for it. I’ve wiped my profile and don’t plan to play this thing again, unless some serious patching occurs. The framerate, which appears to be trying its best to reach 30 FPS, hovers in the 20 FPS range and oscillates wildly depending on what’s happening on screen.

Good lord! Bound to suck.
Its got to be one of the most incompetent studios in the world at the moment. Ark: Survival Evolved is getting an update for Xbox Series X, and the difference is huge. Wow, no comments yet... why not be the first? Scoring PolicyReview copy provided by Snail Games.
After a few more attempts that all ended with the same Megalodon spawn-killing us, we opted for one of the other spawn locations – something far on the other end of the map that was blessedly on land.
The original PixARK launched for the PC on Steam’s Early Access program in early 2018 and this version on the Switch feels equally like a rough framework for what could eventually become a respectable retail release.
Those poor, poor disappointed 8 year olds. Reviewed in the United States on December 30, 2019. The subtitle references the fact that: A) The game is set in a world containing dinosaurs, @Damo @HobbitGamer guys, "confused" is my line here. Hidden shops along the way allow you to customize your ship with wacky weapons; creating laugh-out-loud experiences and frenzied space battles with bosses inspired by the eeriest creatures from the ocean depths.
I LOVE a good bad review. One of the most recent offshoots of this concept is PixARK, a Minecraft-esque take on the cult survival hit Ark: Survival Evolved that eschews the pseudo-realistic dino-hunting aesthetics of the original in favour of a blockier and more colourful style that appeals to a wider audience. This is the journalistic equivalent of a toilet flushing. Those of you that don’t have enough faith in the developers to eventually make good on this potential will want to steer clear, as there’s really no way of knowing whether PixARK will ever become much more than the hastily made effort we see here. A waste of money, Reviewed in the United States on July 4, 2019, My 10 year old kiddo loved it- it does have to be downloaded, Reviewed in the United States on November 2, 2019, Reviewed in the United States on November 28, 2019. 5. Did you? I even spelled it out in another comment above - the subtitle ends up expressing (unless British English has significantly modified the verb 'let' while I wasn't looking) the wish for the subject to "go extinct". A critical talking point that we feel needs to be reiterated is how much PixARK feels like an unfinished game.
Spending said skill points down to zero does nothing to get rid of this message, it sticks around like a bad rash whether you’re in the menus or playing around in the overworld. I hope they patch the game to run at 60 fps.
That, and actual waste products don't even magically cease to exist the moment they're flushed (otherwise indoor plumbing would be a quality solution for dealing with fanship, a waste product of fiction/audience resonance), but it's beside the point here. haha wasn't interested before and now im definitely not. In the state it’s in, it is far from worth the money that’s being asked. The game is still in early access, which is interesting. Props for a bunch of detailedly objective reports on the game's issues in the article. These devs seriously have no shame whatsoever!

I usually feel more inclined to trust evaluations from people who have journalistic credentials rather than random people with Twitter accounts. Games like Assassins Creed 3 are at the upper end of the spectrum.
