This is the game that dragged me kicking and screaming into the survival genre!

It is absolutely beautiful, and while the open world is daunting to begin with (partly to simulate the confusion of crash-landing on an alien planet), there is a surprisingly detailed storyline that keeps progressing through radio updates. This means that while you can just float around building your best underwater house, there is always a pointer to keep things moving along.

Best game I've played in a long time, and the detail and depth of the ecosystem that has been built is outstanding. You won't be disappointed :)

If you're purchasing one or the other separately on Switch we'd still plump for the original game, as Below Zero's fleshed out narrative and on-foot sections dilute the overall experience ever so slightly, but, regardless of which you choose, you're in for a mighty good time here with two of the very best survival games currently available on any platform.

Subnautica is a survival and narrative experience that stands as a benchmark for the genre. The Switch version itself certainly has its drawbacks, but not enough to weigh down the experience too much. Some of them do admittedly affect gameplay mildly, but the strength of Subnautica still pushes through.
