Subnautica (Xbox One)

Postby VideoGameCritic » August 18th, 2019, 8:34 pm

I picked this up at Best Buy thinking it would be a fun summer adventure. Instead it turned out to be a crafting nightmare. So you find yourself in an escape pod floating on the ocean on some distant planet. From there you need to dive down to the ocean floor and collect objects and minerals to craft various tools, like the "repair tool".

I can't make any progress and I'm losing patience. You can only search the sea floor for a few seconds before you need to resurface. And you swim SO SLOWLY. I managed to gather a few items but not enough to make any substantial progress. I'm thinking about letting some friends have a go. This is not my cup of tea.

Unless I can get some traction I will not attempt to review this. Maybe I'll save it for next summer. But I would definitely not recommend this to the casual gamer. Anybody else heard about this??

I've heard of it and it seems like it has good reviews but I was never personally interested for the reasons you outlined.
