Ark Is Garbage, Do NOT buy it

189 posts in this topic

Don't buy this game. It is a waste of money. The game is so laggy and glitchy. I've lost my gear about 8 times due to the game not dropping my pack when I died. Eventhough I knew exactly the spot where I dided and have had Tribe mates with me standing where I died with nothing dropped. It just falls into the abyss. With how many crashes, lagg outs and glitches are in the game it should of been a free download. This game is not worth the $55 in any way shape or form. It's trash. Do Not Buy it

Yupp, apparently. I want a refund on this for sure. It's garbage. Awesome game concept but their hardware is poop. 

You'll have to give Sony a phone call or multiple emails, there's no other way to get a refund.

Sony is very reluctant to give refunds on digital purchases.

I wouldn't say the game is "garbage." I mean, for all the little issues I personally have with actual gameplay, the philosophical approach from the developers and the poor community management, the game itself is pretty good. The spirit of the game and the potential is there.

Go ahead and be angry. Take a break and wait until the next patch. Come back after the patch and if your issue isn't solved by the next patch, take another break. By the 3rd attempt, if the game is still unplayable, if you don't find the building, hunting, trapping and exploring to be entertaining and enjoyable, come back here and raise hell.

Welcome to EA

#ArkLife

Stop. The game has a full release right now on all platforms not just steam, when gamers buy a game for full retail price they expect it to work right. They dont care about EA.

Just because the game has been released on multiple platforms does not change the state of it being a game in development, nor does it mean that the game is in a fully released state. There's no magic handbook of game development that says a game being developed should be confined to one platform.

Perhaps you should have considered buying the game on a platform that offers refund in case you weren't satisfied with it?

There are criteria for refunds, and not liking it, isn't one of them...

Hell, youtube has so many videos of gameplay that you'd be able to see what you are buying, and just because you died, or lost, isn't a valid reason to be looking for a refund.

Aww boo boo you probably would have lost that stuff anyway. I couldn't tell you how many times I've lost stuff in this game. Lost my only 100% imprinted ptera when i dc'd killing an alpha. I've lagged out and fallen through the map many a time. Lost some extremely good gear too. But I took my licks and GOT BETTER. Avoided things that caused me to lag out.

 

The game is fantastic, conceptually, and I have faith that wildcard will eventually figure it all out. I'll be here until then as well. Bought the game on Xbox and pc. No regrets even though I don't even play pc

Stop your whining  OMG.. You did purchase the game at the full price knowing it's not fully released. It's still beta mode. Game dhould release in spring stated by Jat. Play it then. You'll  see it will be better. If not complain then. Mean time don't play or play. I don't care,but you people need to stop your, "Mommy I need my pacifier ." This generation has become nothing more than spoiled,and un thankful bunch of COMPLAINERS. Ark Wildcard. Keep pushing forward. Can't wait until official  release. #Ark4life

Only $55?  At least its not like most of the triple A games that release that are stripped down and they sell you the original content as DLC.  Like others are saying this is early access, says right on the title screen it may not run right, lag or crash.  It does have issues, you can lose stuff under the map, but think about how that situation pops up...  You died in a survival game,  dont say the game is bad because your bad at the game.
