Open Country Review

Jun 10, 2021

FUN Labs, who’s mostly known for their work with the Cabela’s franchise, have branched out with a new kind of outdoors game with Open Country. Approached as an arcade-style game, it retains all the systems and realism one would expect out of the survival genre. Now, this is a modestly priced indie game that has high ambitions, but fails to live up to all of them. It feels like a checklist of things a game like this should have, but implemented in mundane and uninteresting ways, and it just comes across feeling janky. Even with its price point in mind, Open Country is just too rough around the edges.
