Professional Review


Subnautica: Below Zero is a survival adventure game with an open world in which you are free to explore the boundless ocean of an unexplored alien planet. Below Zero is the expansion for the original story, but it is sold separately and doesn’t require you to install the original Subnautica. Now you can experience underwater survival in more extreme polar conditions. You can download Subnautica: Below Zero for PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One.

Graphics – 4.5/5

Subnautica: Below Zero game is designed on the Unity graphics engine. This new chapter doesn’t differ from the original. Subnautica: Below Zero system requirements allows you to set max settings on an average 3 years-old PC and get 60FPS in 1080p resolution. Though it’s not a forward visual experience, you will be satisfied by the quality of light, shaders, textures, and by the realistic depth of the ocean.

Gameplay – 5/5

Subnautica: Below Zero gameplay includes 4 modes. In survival mode, you have to track your consumption of oxygen, water, and food supplies as well as take care of your health. Death is a very nasty thing in the game as you lose all collected items. Fortunately, you can find the place of death after revival and fight your goods back. You can also save your current progress on seabases to protect your stuff. If you just want to explore the world without any dangers, then try the Freedom mode.

In Hardcore mode, you have to behave similarly to survival, but you don’t have the right for a revival. Single death returns the character to the very beginning of the game. Finally, in the Creative mode, you have full freedom to build without blueprints and resources, ride vehicles without energy, and explore without dangers. Surprisingly, while playing the game for this Subnautica: Below Zero review, I found out that it’s possible to complete the campaign in the creative mode. Though, developers claimed that it’s impossible!

You can ride three types of underwater and on-snow vehicles, scan everything with a craftable scanner, and craft new stuff using materials, fragments, and blueprints. Subnautica: Below Zero latest version is still in beta, so new things continue to appear every month.

Controls – 5/5

You can play this game like any traditional 1st person shooter, though there are no guns to shoot, except the stasis rifle that simply freezes objects to win you some time. If you play on PC, use standard WASD for moving and a mouse for navigation and tools. Everything is smooth and unbuggy.

Replay Value – 5/5

This game includes 4 modes that provide different levels of difficulty. You can choose to follow the story or explore the ocean in your way. No matter what you choose, it’s fascinating to look at this world under various angles.

The Bottom Line

Subnautica: Below Zero is a one of a kind survival adventure game. It allows you to discover the diverse underwater world of the new planet with new creatures and objects. Unlike the vast majority of other survivals, it looks gorgeous and doesn’t become boring in a couple of hours.

Conclusion

Download Subnautica: Below Zero to experience, the brand new Subnautica and explore the freezing cold ocean full of dangers and wonders.
