    When Unknown Worlds announced they were bringing this one to Switch we were hugely excited, this is one of our all-time favourite games after all, but it was excitement tempered with a degree of scepticism as to how on earth they'd manage to cram the entire experience onto Switch in a properly playable manner. As it turns out, we needn't have worried as this is a super solid port that - besides a few loading stutters here and there and some scenery pop-in that's present in every other version of the game - successfully delivers one of the very best survival experiences on any platform to Nintendo's hybrid console.

    While the spin-off “Below Zero” feels more modern, this survival adventure classic is still fascinating - and is mostly well executed on Switch.

    Subnautica is a survival and narrative experience that stands as a benchmark for the genre. The Switch version itself certainly has its drawbacks, but not enough to weigh down the experience too much. Some of them do admittedly affect gameplay mildly, but the strength of Subnautica still pushes through.

    I can’t believe how much fun this is to play on the Switch (I am playing 90% docked). Great Port of a fantastic game!

    This is what you call a port. Yeah a graphically downgrade but that's not why you play games on the switch. My scored is based on handheld mode

The optimization is just careless and the constant bugs, crashes and low fps make playing this game not that enjoyable. The graphs aren't great but still better than most switch games. Expand
