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.
Overall if you are hankering for some pretend survival whilst we are all doing it for real with COVID 19 I would definitely recommend this game. Even if you just sit and enjoy the atmosphere I feel it is well worth the money.
Green Hell is a wild and spectacular indie survival because there is so much to do and a lot to risk at every step. It has intriguing mechanics, solid gameplay and extreme realism that blend well with the deadly Amazonian context, forcing the player to engage himself to not dying every 15 minutes. Some minor bugs and technical issues cannot ruin one of the most exciting experiences on the survival scene.
If you look at it and can overlook the rather clumsy story and the weak fighting system, Green Hell is suitable for genre novices with strong nerves as well as for veterans interested in a new challenge.
Green Hell is a hardcore survival that will give you the atmosphere of wandering and surviving harsh Amazon jungle, all while posing an intriguing story to lead you onwards. Even though it does not possess multiplayer and suffers by being an average survival game in many regards, it will provide you with a few hours of quality fun, especially at this price range.
If games like The Forest were up your alley, I do recommend giving Green Hell a shot. However, if you’re easily frustrated by obscure deaths vs trial and error, I’d recommend starting out at the easier difficulty so you can enjoy what it has to offer without needing to wrestle in frustration.
Green Hell is a survival game set in the Amazon jungle where I played as a man lost trying to figure out what was going on while searching for his lost wife and making sure I didn’t die of dehydration along the way. At the normal settings, the survival aspects of Green Hell were harsh enough to make me wonder whether I would actually finish the story. However, after some tweaking, I was able to enjoy most of the game. Though, in the end, I was left wondering whether the experience was worth it in the end.
I find this game extremely hard on normal difficulty. But it was quite fun to play it on easy mode with friend. You get lost in areas & do your best to navigate by map and fail miserably.
In conclusion I would rate it as neutral
The survival mechanics are revealed in bits and pieces, so it looks pretty challenging, but it's simplified by the lack of threats in the jungle. The main threats are small animals that you shouldn't step on and menacing large beasts that you need to kill. The art of dealing with these is not difficult and from then on the jungle becomes boring and a wayfinding game for the story. Still, the initial struggle to survive is quite enjoyable.
The natives are human, but they lack intelligence and aggression. Moreover, they are weak and boring. Their tribes and scouting groups should be more numerous, more belligerent, better at setting traps, and better at dragging animals around to harass Jake. The second half of the game would have been much more tense and interesting with more natives trying to destroy the scouts and the main character's dwelling.
The story is decent, but the resolution of the good ending is a bit too cheesy. This needs to be tightened up.
Overall pretty complex and unforgiving. Realism is good but this game over did it. Crafting is not intuitive and menus are sloppy. The world and mechanics are pretty boring. You can't see anything well because of the many trees.
Anyone giving this game over 6 can't be real. The only thing you have to look out for is different kind of food, or you are dead. Green hell is nothing else but looking for food, eating, building, and dying. If you meet a snake - he bites you - 100% chance of getting poisoned which will kill you if you don't find necessary flowers for cure(and you won't). When you manage to stock a lot of items and food, you will find out there is not much to explore. Had a few issues with playing co-op but fixed them. Graphics are 7/10. Was thinking that it would beat The Forest, but it does not.
SummaryGreen Hell is a sweltering struggle for survival in the Amazonian rainforest. Clinging to life, the player is set on a journey of durability as the effects of solitude wear heavy not only on the body but also the mind. How long can you survive against the dangers of the unknown?
