User reviews

  • I love this game, but there is just not enough replay value to be worth it.
  • This game is kinda like the city-builder version of Dark Souls.
  • The music and ambient sounds are also very well done.
  • There is a healthy variety of crops and buildings, and there is also Workshop/mod support.
  • While building can be repetitive, mod support offers tons of new options for buildings and game features.
  • Banished is a city builder in its purest form.
  • Random map generator which is nice to see. 3 different map sizes, plus a choice of valleys or mountains.
  • At such a large scale Banished resembles a little clockwork machine with hundreds of tiny parts.
  • It gets a veteran’s seal of approval as there is zero hand holding and nothing but hard love.
  • Banished is what many city/village building games wish they could be when they grow up.
  • But for someone like me that just adds to its appeal of truly open ended sandbox game.
  • There are no tech trees, the goal is not to be the next big megacorporate empire or prosperous city, and also no combat.
  • The game is deceptively simple, you start with a few settlers and minimal supplies and you build a thriving settlement.
  • Management without excess of micro management.
  • Keeping track of population growth and seeing your village expand into a small town is great and very scenic.
  • The game is real solid and the balance is very well built.
