Description: Subnautica is an underwater adventure game set on an alien ocean planet. A massive, open-world full of wonder and peril awaits you! You have crash-landed on an alien ocean world, and the only way to go is down. Subnautica’s oceans range from sun-drenched shallow coral reefs to treacherous deep-sea trenches, lava fields, and bio-luminescent underwater rivers. Manage your oxygen supply as you explore kelp forests, plateaus, reefs, and winding cave systems. The water teems with life: Some of it helpful, much of it harmful.

After crash landing in your Life Pod, the clock is ticking to find water, food, and to develop the equipment you need to explore. Collect resources from the ocean around you. Craft diving gear, lights, habitat modules, and submersibles. Venture deeper and further form to find rarer resources, allowing you to craft more advanced items.

Review: Subnautica is an ever-changing, ever-growing survival adventure game that gets you to build you own underwater world in a sea/ocean that is full of incredibly well-designed flora, fauna and sea creatures, it seems to have everything interesting to look at and at many times make you forget the survival aspects of the game.

But it is that survival element of the game that makes it so tough. You start with basic rations and very basic tools meaning you need to work your way to up to the point where the deeper dives will take place and the more interesting creatures can be found. But it totally works sticking with it until these dives can happen because the things you find in the deep parts of this game will blow your mind.

While it might differ to each person who downloads it I have to say I found the Oculus Rift version a little better. While essentially the same game the Steam VR version was slightly more glitchy, but like I said that could be my view of it. Overall it is still the same great game with a very immersive atmosphere and a wonderful sense of explorational wonder. I will say that this is a game best played not in VR, but still a good game to play.
