Even with its children’s-level-complexity, it is a respectable creation and if you still have doubts whether to try the game or not, just check out its trailers and videos. Most or even all of what’s the game is like and its story is in there. No plot twists.
There are aspects of The Suicide of Rachel Foster that exceed expectations; the quality of it’s narrative and audio design, voice-acting performances… It’s truly at the highest level. However, when you compare this to the rest of the game you’re reminded that there are a few aspects of it that are painfully average.
If you’re a fan of the previous Aquanox games or if you enjoy underwater sub-simulators, then yeah, you’ll probably have a good time and I would suggest picking it up. If you prefer your games more action-packed and fast-paced like I do, then I would probably suggest you play something else.
The life of an unpaid intern is pretty gruesome already. Add hordes of goblins you have to defeat, a nagging project manager, coworkers with clashing personalities, and a very odd Amazon-esque parent company. In Going Under, there is a lot to do, and a lot to smash. Overall, the game has it’s problems as well as plenty of strengths that make you want to come back over and over again. For just $20, there is enough to do to make it worthwhile.
