Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Fun and intuitive crafting system allows the player to explore tons of combinations of items
The crafting system can be used to easily and intuitively make hundreds of items. Combine two sheets of metal to make a saw, combine two sticks and a nail to make an arrow. Basically you can play around and test what kind of combination make what items, which is fun in and of itself.
Pro Selection of weapons allows anyone to find something they enjoy using
The game includes a number of guns and melee weapons, giving the player plenty of choice as to how they would like to attack.
Pro PvP winds up being very tense as the resources in the game are very limited
Scarce resources lead players to compete ruthlessly. This creates a scenario where it is all of nothing, show no weakness, give no benefit.
Pro Fair F2P model where no single person has a false advantage over anyone else
The game’s free-to-play model allows anyone to play free of charge; those who are willing to spend $5 get access to a separate server that grants double experience. So while it is not pay-to-win, spending some money will increase how quickly you can advance in the game.
Pro Plenty of things to do in-game, including combat, crafting, and exploring
The game includes combat, a crafting system, a housing system, lots of items, and varied landscapes to explore. Taken together, there’s plenty to keep you busy.
Pro Works great on low-end hardware
The game runs well on older hardware because it does not have very advanced graphics. This makes it compatible with many low spec systems.
Pro Active developer who listens to their community
Unturned is developed by Nelson Sexton. He is very active and always listens to feedback from the player community. He is constantly updating the beta; check the community hub for more info.
Pro Easily mod or add custom maps through Steam Workshop
With Steam Workshop support players can create your own custom maps and mods as well as use others, thus giving the player never ending amounts of extras for the game.
Pro Well made maps where each is designed with purpose
Unturned is slightly different from other open world survival games, because it doesn't use randomly generated worlds. This actually is a pro, because the existing maps are very well made, well thought out, and overall having better design choices for worlds than say, Minecraft, Terraria, or 7 Days to Die.
Con Childish community
Many of the community-run servers are managed by immature administrators who can make the game unbearable.
Con In early access
The game is not yet officially completed, which means that it may still contain bugs, and that features may change or be removed before final publishing.
