Critic score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 14
  2. Negative: 1 out of 14
  1. Its combo of intense, old-school action-shooter gameplay... with entirely original elements (the sonar effect is genius) has me hooked. [Nov 2002, p.298]
  2. If you’re the type of player that enjoys naval themes or even if you just like a lot of guns-blazing, shoot-‘em-up action, the game is destined to be a bona fide sleeper hit. Don’t miss the boat.
  3. What's so great about this game is that it delivers a true sensation of underwater combat without getting all hung up on the details that would normally lead to frustration. [Nov 2002, p.190]
  4. Throw in some fun surface sequences and you've got a really well-rounded, classic shooter. [Dec 2002, p.86]
  5. May take on a little water in the graphics department, but nonetheless swims along nicely in the action genre.
  6. Moves slower than Jacque Cousteau on the toilet. [Jan 2003, p.96]
  7. Though the graphics and sound are fairly basic (aside from a few lighting touches and stylish cinematics, Sub Rebellion could be a PSone game), the gameplay packs a more detailed punch.
  8. 70
    After playing it for a while and as the game begins to get challenging, feelings of accomplishment and tension during battles start to creep in, and the game starts to evoke a decent bit of emotion.
  9. The overall solid game design barely avoids being overshadowed by unexceptional production values.
  10. Although Sub Rebellion isn't the best-looking game on the block, it is still a lot of fun to play. Huge bosses have numerous targets to destroy and the action can get intense.
  11. Its biggest fault is the fact that - underwater setting or not - it's very plodding for an action game, due in large part to some overly cumberson controls. [Nov 2002, p.54]
  12. It may grow a bit tired deeper into the game but the formula works well.
  13. 60
    If you're the type of player who enjoys naval themes or even if you just like a lot of guns-blazing, shoot-'em-up action, it's well worth sinking your money into this title.
  14. Because of this control scheme, moving your sub is a constant frustration, as positioning your sub is very hard, and precise movements are damn near impossible.
