May 3, 2020Stranded Deep represents a survival videogame in one of the purest forms: desert island life. It is certainly not a difficult concept to conceive, but Stranded Deep is an excellent example of a notion done countless times in other media.

The start of the game plays out similar to the Movie Castaway, You're alone on a private jet that meets some catastrophe and crashes in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. You come to and find the plane sinking, and as you swim from the husk you find a lifeboat, then BOOM, and you're unconscious again. When you wake up, you find you've drifted to a small island. With nothing but your Life Raft, and the few rations aboard you must survive long enough to escape this watery prison before it becomes your grave. There are several small islands around the one you land on, each with items you can use to survive. There are several ways of escaping the islands, from repairing a plane to finding a radio and calling for help. The Ocean is a dangerous place, full of Sharks and other deadly creatures, and the islands aren't much safer with Crown of Thorns Starfish in the shallows and snakes hiding in the grass. Fish, Hunt, Explore It's a sandbox game, so how you go about living in this tropical paradise is up to you. Don't want to be rescued? Then don't be, live your days on the islands and enjoy the blazing sunsets. The graphics are beautiful! With some of the most dynamic water that I've ever seen. Look carefully, and you might find Wollie, Wilson's cousin. Easily one of the best sandbox survival games I've played!… Full Review »

I love how open the game is, and how each time you play it feels like a different story. It isn't easy, but that makes a change from most games. My biggest problem is that the controls seem extremely clunky. Unless I am doing something wrong, it takes me over 10 button presses to pick a coconut and drink it. I can't be bothered to craft lots and use the game to the full potential because picking up and using items is just so difficult. Id love to see this on psvr2 one day - maybe that would also make picking items up easier.… Full Review »
