Roblox Lumber Tycoon 2
When you think of an old game that is still popular and regularly updated on ROBLOX, Lumber Tycoon 2 is probably one of the first games that come to mind. It was created back in 2009 and has been frequently updated ever since. Since then, the game has gathered 130M+ visits, 903K+ favourites and 428K+ likes. Lumber Tycoon is almost always at the front page of the most popular games list.
The concept of the game is quite self-explanatory, you are a lumberjack and your job is to cut down wood and take it to the lumber mill/factory that will then reward you with money. It’s quite simple and isn’t very hard to be good at, in fact, anyone should be able to play and enjoy it with quite some ease.
You start off with low quality axes and equipment however, as you level up and gain more money, you can cut larger and bigger trees as well as being able to afford, better equipment.
Using the money, you gain from delivering wood, you will then be able to buy cars, houses and more. The game is basically just a diverse tycoon which involves more effort than just waiting around, printing currencies. As you level up and gain more money there will be bigger and fancier houses to buy such as mansions, as well as better vehicles.
Despite it’s very simple concept the game is highly popular in its community and is one of the biggest ROBLOX games, of all time. The creator Defaultio has since went on to make very successful games and a lot of ROBUX.
Although Lumber Tycoon 2 is a sequel, it is so much more successful than its prequel, Lumber Tycoon, the original, that you wouldn’t believe it. Whilst Lumber Tycoon has a measly 7M+ visits, (which is still impressive), the newer edition has over 120M+ more visits.
Overall, I’d rate the game as 6.5/10 because as popular as it is, I just simply don’t enjoy it. I’d rate it lower personally but due to how beloved it is within its community, I’ll keep it at 6.5/10. Sorry fans of this game, please don’t hate me for rating it this low but I genuinely don’t understand how anyone could enjoy this game past about 30 minutes.
I’d rate it 4.5/10 in playability because honestly, after playing it for about 30 minutes to an hour, it can get boring due to the repetitive content, although saying that, the game is updated frequently. If you are someone that enjoys this gameplay though, it might become very addictive.
To be quite honest, as you can tell, I’m not a very big fan of the game however I am friends with a few players that do like it very much. Although some of my reviews may seem like it, I don’t like every game on ROBLOX and this game is no exception. I appreciate it for the work that the developers put into it but I personally do not enjoy playing it and I do not think very many kids will enjoy it either. The content is just simply too repetitive and not very diverse. It’s very much like a tycoon, fun for a while when you play it first time but you’ll probably never return after completing it once.
Anyway, despite some of the negativity in this review, I hope you enjoyed it and I’d highly advise checking this game out. It’s clearly doing something right and a lot of people seem to disagree with me so you should check it out for yourself before making a conclusion from my response.
