Green Hell is a fantastic survival experience with an exemplary sense of place and peril. Creepy Jar have really nailed the feeling of loneliness and despair that true isolation would lead to and married this to some well balanced challenges and a refreshingly user friendly approach. The range of ways to play are really welcome and should ensure that even those players who may be turned off by the rigours of hunger and thirst mechanics can enjoy the immersive jungle experience. This may not be a welcoming jungle, but there's plenty of fun and games to be had.

Green Hell is one of the most suitable survival experiences for the most experienced players of the genre. This title focuses its mechanics on realism, making it as immersive as possible. Without having invented anything new, the truth is that the varied history mode gives that unique touch in the genre. Despite some of its technical problems, this title is a remarkable game to add to our collection.

Green Hell is the best survival game I've played since The Long Dark. It respects your time, doesn't treat you like an idiot, and expects you to learn from your mistakes.

Aside from the plot, I’d say most of what held my attention about Green Hell was how dazzlingly beautiful and technically impressive it was, but the more traditional survival elements are all solid enough that I look forward to playing more.

I’ll be playing Green Hell for a long time to come. With multiple modes, including multiplayer options and different difficulty settings, there’s a lot of fun to be had here. Its world is beautiful, albeit a bit rough around the edges. But I can’t imagine it’ll be long before we see things fixed up. It’s not like the bar has been set very high, but for what it’s worth, Green Hell is the best survival game I’ve ever played.

A different kind of survival sandbox, Green Hell's anchoring in a contemporary place together with its narrative help to separate it from its more aimless seeming brethren. Though some additional polish is required, Green Hell nonetheless is still one of the better survival sandbox experiences to come along in a good while.

If games like The Forest were up your alley, I do recommend giving Green Hell a shot. However, if you’re easily frustrated by obscure deaths vs trial and error, I’d recommend starting out at the easier difficulty so you can enjoy what it has to offer without needing to wrestle in frustration.

Green Hell is a wild and spectacular indie survival because there is so much to do and a lot to risk at every step. It has intriguing mechanics, solid gameplay and extreme realism that blend well with the deadly Amazonian context, forcing the player to engage himself to not dying every 15 minutes. Some minor bugs and technical issues cannot ruin one of the most exciting experiences on the survival scene.

‎Green Hell is a hardcore maximum survival game and its difficulty is very high for newbies. That's why I really think this isn't a game created for all types of gamers. But, if you want to enter the world of survival through the big door or you are a diehard fan of this modality this can be your game, since its difficulty will make us feel like real survivors.‎

Overall, I thought Green Hell was a good game, but is definitely not for everyone. The survival mechanics can be tough and frustrating just on normal mode. One of the best things the developers did was include so many options for me to play the game how I wanted to. If it wasn’t for that, I’m not sure if I would’ve enjoyed myself.

Green Hell is a brutally tough, deep and satisfying open-world survival sim. It suffers from the same inherent repetition and often infuriating difficulty as most other examples of its genre, but these are problems offset here by satisfying crafting and construction systems, clever smartwatch and body inspection elements and a story mode that easily trumps the vast majority of offerings we've come across in a survival sim. If you can make peace with the Switch's graphical downgrade, missing multiplayer aspect and some minor control issues, what's here is sure to satiate any cravings you may have for some seriously tough survival sim shenanigans.

One of the best survival game experiences since The Forest. Beautiful, immersive and scary, Green Hell is a little masterpiece. The Amazonian jungle is impeccably transcribed, and the game, hard, beautiful, scary and punishing is a real breath of fresh air in the survival genre.

Green Hell is off the charts; possibly the best survival simulator ever made, with the best marriage of an incredible story and game play style.

Despite this port missing the mark with optimization, Green Hell still stands tall among its contemporaries as one of the better recent games of its sort while also pulling off a compelling story.

‎Green Hell is a good survival game that poses a challenge to our ingenuity, in which we will have to make use of our intuition to survive in an Amazon accessible to all types of players, with a solid gameplay, a correct graphic section and some other visual and performance failure that does not affect the entire set.‎

If you are in your element when facing impossible odds, Green Hell is right up your alley. The abuse on players is relentless and creates an almost Stockholm syndrome-like experience. All the survival enthusiasts will keep coming back for more and more punishment.

Featuring great technical resources and a proposal directly based on extreme situations, Green Hell is a game that will test players' limits with a challenging degree of difficulty. Despite having an interesting proposal, the lack of a more objective gameplay structure hinders the fun of the game with an excess of survival elements that affect how the title can be enjoyed.
