A look at 10 great games that are basically one never-ending underwater level, from the iconic BioShock to some indie gems.
I've hated water levels since the Sega Master System and the NES. Hate them all and in every genre of games. I even hate swimming and diving in open world games. Always my least favourite shit to do.
As long as its just not forced and you arent terribly slow, it works well for optional exploration though. I think the last game ive played with diving was kh3 and oh boy did I hate it even though it was quick and easy. Needed to do it to get good items. Man did I hate it in uncharted 4 and last of us too.
The problem with water levels is always the controls and the camera. They never feel right, and it just gets frustrating.
Haven't played that yet. Is it good?
It's a decent game. Exploration and puzzle solving loneliness. If you like exploring and solving puzzles then you may enjoy it. Nothing spectacular though.
Misleading as both Subnautica games have important plot that requires you to go on land
Detest water levels. Absolutely detest them. Almost as much as sewer levels. Even good ones like Super Mario Bros 3 or Super Mario 64 ones make me sigh...
haha yeah Sewer levels too. LOL
At least with mario 64 you get that nice music though right? Being in water did feel really restrictive compared to all the jumps and moves you can usually pull off on land.
The water level in Tomb Raider 2 was my worst enemy back in the day. My heartrate increased just thinking about it ✋😂
