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.

Green Hell delivers a unique experience in the survival genre and adds a strong storyline on top. The impressive sound design immerses players in the rainforest through soft sounds and terrifying predators.

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.

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 the best survival game I played in 2019 and one of the best ever. After the tutorial the game leaves you alone in a massive, beautifull and dangerous forest fighting for your life harder and harder as you progress in the game. This forest is really "green hell"

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.

The beautiful jungle of Green Hell tries to be very realistic, which results in it being a bit too deadly. Recommended only for the hardcore fans of the genre due to the extreme difficulty.

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 challenging survival game that pits you against the elements, the Amazonian rainforest, and your own mind.

Unique survival game with some amusing elements, just with too small Amazonian rainforest and low replayability.

Bottom line, Green Hell still comes across as a refreshing survival game. The difficulty level of the game will have many players screaming "bloody green hell". Initially, patience is key and learning as you go. If you do decide to stick with it you'll be treated to a rewarding experience.

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.

Though full of frustrating elements, like snakes and leeches, Green Hell has some incredibly memorable elements that tie well together with the lush forest and oppressive weather effects. Though the UI aspect of crafting is a bit off-putting, the organizational aspects are interesting, engaging, and immersive and lend well to the overall experience that Green Hell provides you with. While veteran survival players may only spend a dozen or so hours in the game, Green Hell’s approachability, storytelling, and immersively gorgeous graphical fidelity make it one of the most accessible and forgiving survival titles of today.

Green Hell is a very well packaged product. It offers new ideas for the survival genre, reinventing mechanics already seen and introducing new ones: the nutritional classification of food or the diagnosis. Despite the indie mold it shows the muscles from a technical point of view.

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.
