Our Rating: 7/10
Force of Nature 2: Ghost Keeper is an action-adventure game set in a sandbox environment. There are a lot of different elements rolled into one. In essence, you play a man in his garage who is chasing a sound. You’re suddenly relocated to a strange island where you must gather resources and craft with them to stay alive.
It’s a unique single-player game in which you can customize your character in some way. There includes crafting, fighting, exploring biomes, selecting talents, and playing with friends.
Exploration and Crafting
You may wander around and investigate what you can do and discover in this game during the exploration stage. There’s a lot to see and do. The map is really large. There’s not a whole lot to do, though. There’s also a talent tree, though it’s not revolutionary. Although, of course, it’s good to be able to pick and choose which talents and skills you want.
The crafting mechanism can be a little perplexing at times. There are a lot of things to prepare and construct. Separate objects are completed on different workbenches or in different locations, so take your time getting used to it and figuring out how to do everything.
There’s also the reality that many of the recipes take a long time to prepare, requiring a great deal of grinding. Depending on the type of playstyle you’re after, this could be a little tedious.
When making something, it’s common to use numerous elements or ingredients. To get that result, you’ll need to collect several different materials and make small components. You may spend a lot of time just making anything little.
You must do all of the grindings yourself. But then again, most survival games are like that. It’s hard work; it’s putting in the time and effort to complete tasks.
Not enough inventory
The inventory is a separate issue. To say the least, inventory management is a pain. There isn’t much room for you. You have 16 inventory slots to work with, and you must always utilize macros to keep track of them because you will run out at some point.
The problem is that your inventory is limited, and you can only make baskets with a total of five goods and a stack of 50.
Combat isn’t ideal. It’s not thrilling at first, but it may improve as time goes on. All you have to do is click. There is no attack, even though it has certain RPG stats. It’s more of a “let’s see how prepared you are” situation. Fighting monsters and foes also does not provide many experiences. As a result, leveling your combat is a time-consuming process.
Another negative aspect is the soundtrack. It’s not perfect, but when it comes to independent games, we can’t expect perfection. Although music isn’t particularly an important aspect of this kind of game, it would have been nice if they put more effort into it.
If Force of Nature 2: Ghost Keeper had multiplayer, it would almost certainly be a must-have. It would be fantastic if you could enlist the help of friends. It’s almost a must-have in survival games, whether you’re playing against or with your pals. It’s always fun to split up those chores and work on the base while fighting off enemies.
Overall, we would recommend this game to anyone seeking something a little different or a crafting / grinding game. Particularly if you enjoy survival-mixed RPG sandbox games.
