At first I thought it was a common survival game with differential happening on the ocean floor. I was surprised. The graphics are elegant. The mechanics of vehicles in water is pure sci-fi. Developers opted to not display a map or gps, this made exploration difficult and exciting. But there are flaws. The Cyclop submarine is very giant and has poor energy efficiency, which makes it an uninteresting experience. Hunger and constant thirst is very annoying, and they turn you off from the narrative
It's a gorgeous game, also speaks to the fear of the unknown, specifically the ocean which is terrifying... even though this isn't technically a horror game. I'm not much for survival generally because having to eat every 5 minutes ruins a game for me, but this is fairly forgiving, and there are different modes (one in which you don't have to worry about that). Big open-world to explore, lots of intrigue, pretty cool story.
Minecraft underwater. Lots of crafting, amazing graphics and lots of exploring to be done. The survival element is easily manageable once you know how everything works. Replayability may be an issue for some because it's a fixed world with the items you need to progress being essentially in the same spots from game to game. However if like me you have a rotten memory and a terrible sense of direction replayability is much less of an issue! Cool story too.
I like to play this on Freedom without hunger and thirst, but even then the travel times are kind of brutal. Desperately needs a fast travel system. The game is hard enough without the bugs too. When I reloaded a save I respawned in a fire and died.
it doesn't really deviate from the explore, collect and improve-formula other genre entries offer, but there's yet something special about it. is it the colourful, beautiful, immersive underwater world? is it the awesome sound-design? is it the array of pretty cool tools and gadgets? or the way you're introduced into the world by just the right balance of freedom and plot? ok, yes, that's it. all of it. it's great.
