So as it stands, Soma is still as enthralling for me as I remember, even two years later. It’s burned its story and themes into my brain, ironically enough, and while I forgot little bits here and there, I was shocked at just how much the game has stayed with me all this time later. I could go on and more in depth but our other review has readers covered.
SOMA is a survival horror game that shows us a bleak future on several levels. The game is built and driven entirely by its atmosphere and characters, with the gameplay itself offering little more than terrified fetch quests and cat-and-mouse tactics. Visually the game will make you take it slow, one step at a time, and while its physics engine is fun to play with it can be bothersome to find the right angle for interaction.
SOMA offers a different kind of psychological horror experience: eschewing jump scares in favour of asking some probing questions about consciousness, identity, existentialism, and artificial intelligence. An effectively told, impressively presented, and immensely engrossing sci-fi mystery, SOMA proves that it's very much worth your time on Xbox One.
