Takes its inspiration from many games
SCUM mostly resembles Fallout New Vegas in terms of character customization, except that customization is far deeper and more complex. For example, strength attributes do more than determine your carry weight and gun-size ability. It is an open world survival with many things in common with State Of Decay Year One. Most notably the fact that you can hold up in a location, but you will have to go out and search for food and goods if you wish to continue surviving. The graphics are detailed and many of the visuals are lush and conducive to each area, but most people will have to turn the graphics quality down in order for their computer to accommodate the game’s demands on their core processors. SCUM also resembles 7 Days to Die and DayZ.
A very well conceived game
SCUM has a level of depth and control that few other survival games have, which is why it is a shame it is so easy to die within the game. Imagine spending hours tinkering with your character so that he is the peak of everything you need to match your game play style, only to walk around for a while and be slain very easily. The game sets a new standard in survival gaming both in terms of game depth and graphics, but it seems to stumble from one issue to the next. Prior to buying, you need to check up on which bug is annoying people the most at your time of purchase because it occasionally generates game-breaking bugs and there is no guarantee when the developers will fix them since their updates generate new bugs as they remove older ones.
