7 Days to Die review: Creative survival that misses the mark

During a time where Minecraft exponentially expanded, and survival-RPGs such as DayZ took the spotlight online, 7 Days to Die was a natural culmination of 2013’s two biggest hits.

7 Days to Die is a voxel-based survival game at its core, with an alterable world built from textured cubes. Unlike many games that follow this cubic structure, the game has been textured with smoother, natural terrain to hide this backbone. This serves as a platform for an extensive role-playing game, which brings together a comprehensive crafting and construction system with survival mechanics.
