    A beautiful underwater survival game

    • Pros
    • Visual graphics
    • Unique world exploration
    • Crafting
    • Cons
    • Limited combat mechanics
    • Lack of clear guidance at times

    Subnautica immerses you in a sprawling underwater realm teeming with life and mystery. You explore vast and varied environments, from the bustling ecosystems of vibrant coral reefs to the foreboding depths of eerie deep-sea trenches and scattered wreckage. You’ll constantly be diving further into the unknown looking for new discoveries and challenges, with hidden wonders and dangers lurking around every corner.

    As you explore the alien ocean, you’ll find yourself drawn into a delicate dance of survival and exploration. Gathering resources becomes a vital task, as you must scavenge materials from the rich biodiversity of the ocean floor to craft essential tools, equipment, and habitats. The seamless integration of crafting and resource management adds depth to the gameplay experience, which will challenge you to balance your exploration to collect resources with the dangers of the underwater world.

    Subnautica is very immersive and unpredictable. The alien planet is home to a vast array of creatures, each with its own behaviors, habitats, and threats. From the majestic beauty of gentle reefbacks to the terrifying menace of predatory leviathans, encounters with these creatures are both awe-inspiring and perilous. The constant sense of tension and uncertainty will keep you on your toes, you never know when you might encounter a new species or face a deadly threat.

    For those who enjoy the thrill of exploration and the challenge of survival, Subnautica offers a captivating and unforgettable experience. Its seamless blend of crafting, resource management, and underwater exploration creates a rich and immersive world that begs to be explored. Whether you’re delving into the depths in search of rare resources or uncovering the secrets of an alien civilization, there is adventure at every turn. If you’re ready to dive into an underwater world where danger and wonder await, Subnautica is an experience not to be missed.

    I highly recommend giving this game a try!

    Subnautica: Submerged treasure
    10

    If you want to plunge into an underwater adventure like no other, where exploration and survival go hand in hand, then this game is for you. Subnautica’s colorful oceanic world is teeming with life, from colorful coral reefs to mysterious deep-sea creatures, making it a breathtaking experience.

    Something I love the most about Subnautica is its sense of freedom, as a survivor of a crash-landed spaceship, you’re free to explore the vast ocean at your own pace. You can take your time exploring the great ocean, building your base and uncovering hidden wonders and secrets of the alien planet.

    But not to be all praises, there are some stuff that might put you off. For example, survival in the depths of Subnautica is a constant struggle against the elements. From managing oxygen levels to avoiding dangerous predators, every moment is a struggle. But the one thing I had most trouble is the steering of the Cyclops as sometimes it can be a bit too difficult to maneuver it through the deep caves or especially when running away from leviathans, which is a shame as it is the most important vessel in the game. Additionally, the lack of clear objectives can leave you feeling adrift at times, unsure of where to go or what to do next.

    Despite its flaws, Subnautica rewards players with a rich and immersive gameplay experience like no other game. You can build everything from basic tools to advanced underwater bases, giving you the means to survive in this hostile environment.

    Overall, Subnautica is a deep and engaging underwater adventure that offers a truly unique gaming experience. With its beautiful world filled with colors and life, and great gameplay that gives you the true sense exploration, it is a must-play for fans of the survival genre.

    One of the best games I've played
    9

    Subnautica is one of the best games I’ve played in a long time. It has hooked me from the beginning to the end, and has made me feel all kinds of emotions. It is a survival game in an alien underwater world, where you have to explore, collect, craft and survive. But it’s not just that, it also has a very interesting and well-told story, which makes you want to know more about the planet, its inhabitants and your own destiny.

    What I liked most about Subnautica is the feeling of immersion and discovery. The game leaves you a lot of freedom to explore at your own pace, and every time you dive into the water you find something new and surprising. There are a wide variety of biomes, each with its own aesthetics, fauna, flora and resources. Some are beautiful and calm, others are dark and terrifying. You never know what you’re going to find, and that makes the game very dynamic and fun.

    I also really liked the crafting and base building system. The game gives you many options to create your own equipment, vehicles and home. You can customize everything to your liking, and adapt to the surrounding conditions. Additionally, the game has a good balance between difficulty and reward. It is not an easy game, there are many dangers and challenges to overcome, but it is not frustrating either. The game rewards you for your effort and your curiosity, and makes you feel like you are progressing and improving.

    Subnautica is a game that lasted me 74 hours, and that I enjoyed to the fullest. It is a game that makes you live a unique and memorable adventure, that makes you think and makes you feel. It is a game that I recommend to everyone, especially lovers of survival, science fiction and nature. Subnautica is a game you won’t regret playing.

    Subnautica is a game you need to play

    • Pros
    • Colorful & fun gameplay
    • Story telling
    • You can explore lush coral reefs, volcanoes, cave systems & more
    • The game allows you to descend into the depths of an alien underwater world filled with wonder and danger
    • You can craft equipment, pilot submarines and out-smart wildlife
    • Cons
    • My only issue is, where are the guns or weapons? You go to an alien world, but do not have deadly weapons to make sure you are not being attacked by wildlife? Ok then...

    Well, let’s start about what Subnautica is. You & many others were on a giant spaceship called Aurora that been hit by an energy weapon of unknown origin, making our ship crash land on an ocean planet. You, as one of the few crew members, save yourself in an escape pod, but your life pod taken some damage. Luckily, it’s not too bad tho because you land within sight of the smoldering wreck of the Aurora, your former mothership.

    Get ready for your survival and uncover the story as you descend into the depths of an alien underwater world filled with wonder and danger. In the game, you can craft equipment, pilot submarines and out-smart wildlife. You can also see & explore lush coral reefs, volcanoes, cave systems.

    If you like story-driven open world games with a lot of water, you will love this game!

    Subnautica is a game that can satisfy a vast spectrum of gamers. It could be a sandbox for your architectural creativity; it could be a thrilling underwater survival; it could be a discovery-type exploration adventure; it could be all of them at once. Add to that beautiful graphic and solid story… do I need to say more? 🙂

    Anyway, I saw many people on YouTube showcasing their amazing underwater home bases and that was a first thing that brought me to this game. I was impressed not only by people’s creativity, but also by tools that game gives you. Indeed, building stuff in Subnautica is easy, intuitive and overall fun. Admittedly, I was never good at expressing myself via creative content, but nevertheless I was having a good time building a transoceanic tunnel or a secret self-sufficient base in the deepest part of the ocean. However, exploration and survival elements of the game – these are two parts that I like the most. Imagine that you are trying to chart unexplored depths in your freshly build submarine, and suddenly gigantic see monsters swarm around you. It took only one moment for a peaceful journey to turn into a survival horror where Leviathan crunching on your sub while you’re trying to swim as fast away as possible. There is no food, no water and the home base is far away… Definitely fun! (And yeah, dying in the middle of the ocean from dehydration happened to me a lot XD). Next time, make sure to prepare adequately for the upcoming expedition, my future self! And you know what: gathering resources, crafting gear and upgrading your sub in preparation to go farther and deeper have its own appeal.

    Like I mentioned earlier, the game also have a decent story where our main heroine trying to untangle all threads that lead to mysterious disappearance of her sister who was doing research on this oceanic planet. Ancient civilizations, corporative greed and existential threat – all included! Have I talked yet about unique diving experience and different biomes featured in Subnautica? No? Well, you sure will like it!

    Terrifyingly Immersive (pun intended)
    9
    • Pros
    • Intuitive gameplay
    • Lots to do and see
    • Good pacing between creativity and exploration
    • Scary
    • Cons
    • The map is fixed, so each playthrough starts to feel a bit samey

    I really loved the instinctive feel of the gameplay, everything is very intuitive and you don’t need your hand held as you dive into the adventure (except that it is terrifying and having your hand held might help there). There is a very real sense of isolation and despair that creeps in, but the game helps you push through that to try to survive against all odds. One of the few survival games that can really instill that true “I could die alone” fear.

    Subnautica: Dive, Survive, Just Stay Dry!
    9
    • Pros
    • Dive into endless underwater wonders
    • Immersive exploration like no other
    • Storytelling that sinks its hooks in
    • Befriend with some creature (I said SOME)
    • Great soundtracks
    • Survival never felt so deep
    • Cons
    • Occasional technical hiccups
    • Some may find it a bit too 'waterlogged'

    I’m not usually a fan of horror games (say what you want, if you’ve lived in my childhood house, you’d quickly change your mind), but one day I got my hands on a game called Subnautica (from a black-and-white official store that’s great on prices, but that’s not our discussion here). I was intrigued – the graphics were stunning, the game’s atmosphere was immersive, and the sound effects were so perfect that you truly felt like you were in the protagonist’s shoes. You always want more; yes, you want to see more with every minute spent in the game.

    The biomes were each different from the others, each with its own set of fauna and flora, and there were even things to discover above the water (Mr. Crabs, if you’re listening…). The creatures varied in size, from the cutest to the explosive, to the Levi… um, I’ll let you discover that one on your own, because the first time I encountered it, I almost joined Valhalla.

    The story was incredibly intriguing, whether told orally or through text. As you progress, the plot thickens, and you uncover plenty of new stories and places (Jules Verne would have been proud of us, believe me).

    Oh, I almost forgot the main thing: SCAN, SCAN, and SCAN everything that moves and doesn’t move. You’ll have plenty to read, to craft, and to fuel your creativity. After all, it’s a survival game, and you’ll be building bases at all water levels to avoid unnecessary back-and-forth with your submersible vehicles (yes, there are mechs, mini-subs, and big machines).

    I loved the game so much that I pre-ordered “Subnautica 2: Below Zero” almost a year before its release. I’ve probably missed a lot of things describing the game, and some are intentional, so you can discover them in your own adventure.

    If you haven’t played Subnautica, go for it, dive in, whether it’s on sale or not; it’s definitely worth immersing yourself in (nice pun, right?)

    The game that revived hydrophobia as a term
    9
    • Pros
    • Interesting story
    • Varied areas to explore that all feel unique
    • Great progression mechanics
    • Genuinely scary at times, despite not being a horror title.
    • Cons
    • Game runs pretty poorly at times, but much better than before.
    • Once you've played it through, there is not much else to do.

    Subnautica is a title that managed to create its own sub-genre. Gathering materials and using them to build a base or a vehicle was of course something that had been done before, but when you see newer titles that very specifically emulate the feeling of picking up one unit of metal from the ground with a weird scanner, then that is most likely a Subnautica-like. that Subnautica managed to spawn a sub-genre is also a very good indication of just how good it is. In Subnautica, you crash land on an alien water planet, and must figure out a way to escape. The premise is simple, but a surprisingly intricate story leads you through twists and turns that will keep you engaged and gathering random metals from the ocean floor. A warm recommendation from me.

    • Pros
    • Players are able to see the wide choice of building items, hunting sea creatures in order to build those items and make your POD beautiful
    • The view of the sea and the environment is extremely eye-catching
    • Cons
    • This game is extremely hard, depending on how you cope

    Gamers should give this game a try even if it is hard to cope at first, but it takes practice just like in real life situations.

    Subnautica: A Game Well Worth Getting.
    9
    • Pros
    • The graphics are vivid.
    • The gameplay is highly engaging.
    • The puzzle isn't easy to work through. Many clues are very subtle and easily missed.
    • Cons
    • It does seem like some of the alien creatures do not move at the speed you would expect, relative to each other. Escaping from creatures sometimes seems too easy.
    • Aliens can kill you, some instantly. However, many creatures seem to do less damage than they should.

    This is an outstanding game. Unlike many games, this one is not about points and level ups. It isn’t about killing alien life forms. It is about survival while solving a puzzle.

    Underwater Survival
    8
    • Pros
    • Story
    • Multiple Biomes
    • Large creatures
    • Music
    • Cons
    • Building limits
    • Walking (mainly just feels weird after swimming for so long)

    Subnautica is an underwater survival game, and it makes you wonder why underwater levels in so many games are bad since this one is done so right.

    You start the game by crash landing on a water planet. Your life pod is in bad shape, but this alien planet has the materials you need to repair it and craft new items, either that or 3D printers become really adept in the future.

    After getting some of the basics down you watch your old spaceship explode and go out on an adventure trying to find a way off this planet.

    The game has multiple biomes to explore the further down you go with unique enemies and materials to find.

    The deeper down you go you find more and more signs and information of a previous life form that used to live on this planet and piece together what happened. Subnautica was one of the first survival games that implemented a story into the genre that you can complete and it is a pretty interesting one at that.

    Because being so deep underwater wasn’t scary enough, there are a few really large creatures that you do not want to face outside of your submarine. Unlike most other creatures these large ones will stay a problem even in the late game since they are pretty much immortal.

    Building in this game uses a stability system where you need to reinforce some walls and need a proper foundation to build your base. For smaller buildings, this is fine but can feel kind of limiting for larger ones at times. The building itself is really simple since you mainly work with squares or bigger squares. And for the inside, there are a good amount of decorative items you can put down.

    Subnautica is not all underwater, there are a few locations where you can stretch your legs and walk around. You will mainly be doing this in your base and the large submarine. For the most part, this feels fine since it is all flat terrain. But there are a few islands in the game and I don’t know why but it feels a bit off. This might be because I am used to the mobility of being in the water. All I am saying is they created a game where you would rather wanna be underwater than on land and that is something I never thought would be possible.

    The soundtrack of Subnautica is amazing. Especially the ones used for the trailers, giving you another reason to watch it other than seeing what they released in that update.
