9.1 / 10.0

Subnautica is a template for what open-world survival games should strive to be. It's fantastical, fresh, and frightening from surface to seabed, with a story that kept on surprising me and a cast of sea monsters that quite literally haunted my dreams. Even with more than 50 hours sunk, I have yet to discover all of its secrets. It's a testament to how enticing those secrets are that I'm willing to face my fears and plunge my submersible into the darkest corners of its unforgiving ocean again and again.
