The only aim in Rust is to survive. To do this you will need to overcome struggles such as hunger, thirst and cold. Build a fire.
Build a shelter. Kill animals for meat. Protect yourself from other players.
Create alliances with other players and together form a town. Whatever it takes to survive.
Rust goes where no other survival game has and provides an incredibly threatening experience that, like a car accident, is equal parts horrifying and mystifying.
Rust is a brutal game, an intense and often sadistically punishing hell with a great potential and a new look.
Rust is a malicious experience rife with betrayal, cruelty and greed. That can make it both frustrating and sublime in equal doses.
Rust is still as addictive as it was. Maybe, because of its early success, we expected more from it, and in that case it can be disappointed. It still needs to be polished and improved, but at its core, Rust is a great crafting and survival game.
For competitive players who want a mix of survival and crafting, Rust is the best there is; for everyone else, there are plenty of other games.
PvP-heavy survival game for gamers resistant to frustration, with weaknesses in construction and discovery.
Its lack of survival depth and inclination to only reward time served instead of clever play saps whatever life it might have had to give.
