Critic Reviews for Submerged: Hidden Depths

Submerged is a wonderful, melancholic exploration game, that builds a more defined and evocative world than many AAA games do.

Submerged: Hidden Depths is not only beautiful to look at, it offers a nice change of pace from the open world RPG titles out there.

Submerged: Hidden Depths is the perfect game to play when needing a break from the more stressful or narrative intense experiences. Featuring a powerful orchestral score, relaxing exploration and puzzle solving, and a subtle yet interesting story about the bonds of family and the power of hope, Submerged surprised me and provided me with one of my favorite experiences of the year.

Relaxing and lovely, Submerged: Hidden Depth doesn't have much in the way of gameplay, but it's still a nice experience for anyone who wants to explore its sunken world.

There's no mechanics, really, to speak of. There's no combat for us to discuss. You can't even jump on command — only at specific places. Submerged is a chillout experience about exploration with a slight story and basically nothing else, and honestly, we're okay with that. Not everything has to be explosions or sad-times-my-kid-died-and-now-I've-grown-a-beard depressing drama. Pop on Submberged as a palette cleanser between more involved titles or as an escape from the horror of reality and you'll be fine. This is fine.

Submerged: Hidden Depths exists on its own chill plane – an exploration game that is truly about exploration and little else. Though some may feel that Submerged is lacking in mechanics, those that get onboard with its subdued vibe will find a lot of beauty in the experience. This is a gorgeous game, and exploring its mysteries is a reward in itself.

‎Submerged: Hidden Depths is a quiet, puzzled, simple game where the exploration of a city literally submerged in water is encouraged. Even with its flaws, it is a unique experience that we can spend in one or two afternoons -everything depends on the hours you play in each one-, seeing how both brothers are gradually forging an unbreakable relationship. A remarkable artistic and sound section, but too simple in the playable, which may be what is sought by its creators; but it could have been exploited more without being overwhelming for the player and maintaining that constant search for relaxation.‎

Despite not expanding on its gameplay ideas enough to avoid tedium, the ambience, atmosphere, and ease of play do make Submerged Hidden Depths a competent addition to its genre.
