So, I give this game a pretty decently high score. And it's for a lot of factors. Let's say a 4 out of 5 stars.

Low cost, - IT's 10$ bucks. I don't normally expect a big complex game for 10 dollars. And this meets the basic criteria for that much money. About 20+ hours of fun/relax time.

Mood setter type: Relax, problem solving, time killer. If this is what you're looking for, Great. I can give some suggestions of ther games to try if you're looking for something more complex. Like, SubNautica, another underwater, builder/survivor. A LOT MORE complex though.

Graphics. : Pleasant. It's not TOO taxing on the system, and it's challenging enough to be fun.
Just remember, you get what you pay for. Don't expect a large game, and you'll enjoy the crap out of it. It even has a challenge mode ever after you finish the main story line. You can buy stuff for the sand box mode using the chest of coins you find at the bottom of the ocean.

Content: I only saw three level/biomes (that I remember)(which don't have to be the same thing, but are in this case.) However, there was a large variety in mobs/food. You can garden, hunt, craft, build, mine, etc. The game balance is fantastic, imo. Challenging yet attainable without pulling your hair out. I Legitamately had a GREAT time playing this game. Usually when I'm stressed out and just need a freaking break. So I docked it one star for variety of biomes, but give it 4 stars for the delicate balance between challenge and enjoyment. BRAVO! No really, that's hard to do guys. <3 Well done.

Frankly, I'd be interested in buying DLC extra content for it, but I don't think it recieves any support anymore, I'm not sure.
Anyways, It's not amazing omgballz, and it's not a pathetic pos either. Keep your expectations in check, and you'll throughgly enjoy this game. I know I did. <3

Basically if you want to play and just build a sweet underwater fortress its not bad. Its just lacking in actual story/gameplay if you're looking for something more in depth.
This game has cool crafting and survival aspects and its underwater so thats pretty fun.
It's not a bad game, just a little lacking in content

I guess its "ok". The Graphics are very basic, and feel stylized and makeshift. (Esp if you know Saubnautica). Weird is that you sink to the ground and have 5 "leaps", instead of swimming, so the game feels more like low gravity than underwater... you feel could easily reskin in for, say the moon.


Still, an ok game for 2-3 hours. Then you have the Adventuring mode though, and the "one life" mode is the same.

A knock-off of Minecraft combined with Subnautica. Wow is it terrible. Do not waste your money here, folks. This game is difficult at best, looks nowhere near as good as subnautica, and is nowhere near as fun and forgiving a survival experience as most classics like Minecraft. Don't buy it, especially when subnautica is only 10 bucks more and serves as an infinitely superior underwater survival experience.

Its not that great. Subnautica is better, but still this game will have about 1 hour until you give up and spend money on subnautica. Just get subnautica first and dont spend 30 fricken bucks in one day.

Great game. Loads of fun on it;however, the devs seem to have give up on it. Lots of potential put to waste. I thought it was early access until i saw otherwise. Its about 3-4 hours of fun max until you see how empty and limited the game is. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS (unless it starts to be updated again). If this game is on sale for 2-3 USD, its a good find, if not, its a waste.

I wish I could give this games a glowing review, I realy do, however I can't.

It has at best 4 hours of acttual gameplay in it. I feel it could be a great game if they would just add more to the game; however for what it is I would say wait till it goes on sale.

I can only recommend it under heavy discount (I myself bought it along with a bunch of other games on bundlestars(dot)com) and, with that price, it's a fair purchase - it is a small survival experience with fairly intuitive UI, compressed in 2-3 hours worth of content that I really enjoyed (then there's basically nothing else to do, except for hunting for more materials you already have and expanding the base that you don't really have to do).

The only thing that stops me from just buying Subnautica is its "Early Access" state, but even at the moment for just 10 bucks more it will provide you significantly much more content, more polished graphics, compared to FarSky, so keep that in mind.

Simply amazing for 1 night, then you will never play it again.

Its way too shallow on content with mostly useless items and very few reasons to craft things twice.

Play on hard to add fear and slow you down. Or better yet, buy something else.

This could have been a great series but has already been abandoned.

One of the best games I dont recommend, if that makes sense.

This game was great in the beginning, however, content is limited because the dev's quit on the game during early access. It's virtually an underwater version of minecraft, with rebuilding your sub as endgame. No sandbox mode, just 3 slightly different versions of a survival mode. I rarely see anyone with more than 10 hours of gameplay because really there's only about 5 in this before you have nothing left to do, with no real wish for a replay.

Personally, I suggest Subnautica for those interested in this, as it has regular updates and dev's that care.

I really want to recommend this game.

It has a really cool premise and it is pretty well realised.

The problem is that it is short as all hell. Unlike other "Minecraft-like" games out there this really does have a hard end point to it. Your objective is to collect all the pieces of your sub so that you can get back to the surface(which doesn't ,make sense but whatever VIDEO GAMES!) and once you have them all that is pretty much it.

You do unlock a sandbox mode but in playing the main game you will see everything the game has to offer. With the lack of mods and the Developer stating that they will not be adding any more content it is kinda hard to recommend.

It also has one of the worse save functions around. To save you have to quit out of your game completely. That would only be mildly annoying if the game didn't have a nasty habit of crashing to desktop. I stopped playing the game for a week after the game crashed as soon as I found the final piece of the sub. Losing me near to an hour of gameplay.

So in summation
+Cool Premise
+Nice Graphics
+Nice Atmosphere
-Very Short
-No future support
-terrible save function
-Crashes alot

Great fun for the first 2 hours...then you run out of stuff to do.

If your looking for an alternative that actually has some content and regular updates check out Subnautica.

I do not believe there's been any updates since it's release date. It's awesome for what it is but by this point it's insanely out of date.

I would recommand Subanautica instead.

The the Developers of this game would add modding support or additional content, I'd gladly reconsider my review evaluation, give it more hours of my life exploring and/or Developing. I do Senior level .NET Development for my day job, Java isn't that difficult to code in either.

Thank you,
