I don’t hate Green Hell, but I do lament what it could have been. I went into the game with an open mind and a willingness to try things out. Sadly, the lack of coherent direction and awkward controls made the game overly difficult. While I’m not adverse to challenge, it is a nitpick of mine to get lost due to sloppy design. I honestly hope Creepy Jar takes my notes constructively and uses them to make their next game a masterpiece. Sadly, this particular entry is quite hard to recommend.

To play any game that is both daunting and frustrating, yet encouraging and achieving is mind-boggling to me. I didn’t think I’d enjoy Green Hell, and to tell you the truth, I hate and love it. Hours and hours of gameplay in and I feel a rollercoaster of emotions. Allow me to explain.

The Spirits of Amazonia update grants a lot of new and interesting features for Green Hell, and adds in an engaging storyline as well that is exciting for newcomers and veterans of the game alike.

Green Hell is one of the more difficult survival games I’ve played, but I enjoyed the learning experience with each death and the story mode is fantastic. It did get frustrating being so realistic with the sheer number of ways you can injure yourself or get violently ill. It was a bit like playing through Groundhog Day whilst learning the gameplay loop and learning crafting recipes, but it’s worth persisting and building regular save points to allow you to explore more and open up more of the story.

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.

If you’re a fan of survival games, no matter if hardcore or casual, then Green Hell will surely provide you with a gaming experience like no other. Despite a few minor complaints, Green Hell is tense, gorgeous, immersive, and even terrifying at times. This game ticks all the right boxes for me, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of survival games. I absolutely loved playing through the story mode and unravelling its mystery, and I can’t wait for the Spirits of Amazonia expansion to be fully released, so that I can dive into that.

Green Hell tries to be a hardcore survival experience and it achieves its goal but the story needed to be more focused on the exploitation of Amazon and its natives by governments and corporations alike to actually mean anything.

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.

Green Hell is generally a good game. The fight could be better realized, as could physics. However, the game has to offer an interesting storyline, well-dedicated jungle atmosphere, successful music and decent graphics. There were bugs, and the gameplay could be more extensive.

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.

Green Hell is a good story-driven survival game, even if with some problems with the controls and the initial difficulty. The co-op play option is also excellent, allowing players to distribute tasks making the whole experience more enjoyable.

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 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.‎

Green Hell is a surprisingly great game which has exceptional depth in its mechanics, an immaculately detailed and immersive world to explore (and die in), with a story that has absolutely no right to be as fantastic and deep as it is. With a wealth of options in modes and difficulty settings, wannabe survivalists will be hard pressed to find a deeper, more rewarding experience. Despite some minor technical flaws and a punishing opening, Green Hell is a game fully deserving of your time and investment.

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.

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.

‎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.‎
