Subnautica is a fantastic survival game, and we could only ask for some minor technical issues to be polished on the console versions. It’s a game that could and should run better on Xbox One, particularly on the X, but the great core experience remains untouched.
A fascinating survival adventure in a wonderfully weird underwater world.
It’s rare for a game to provide such an amazing and deeply rewarding sense of discovery, yet Subnautica does it successfully. It’s a joy to look at its lush and colourful visuals, explore its cryptic environ and utilize the extensive range of tools to do so.
Despite the performance issues, Subnautica is definitely a title that you shouldn't sleep on. The open world exploration and survival mechanics are on point, and the world is massive, deep, and rich in detail; it's just a shame that it's being held back a little bit by problems with how it runs.
