Submerged: Hidden Depths
is the sequel to the game Submerged. I have never played the first Submerged game so I cannot tell you if the sequel picks up from the first game. Therefore, this review is solo going to focus on the second game in the series.
The game starts off with a sister and brother in a world covered in water. The Mass as they refer to it has taken over towns and recreated the people who it sadly killed. The sister is also touched by the Mass, but instead
of it killing her, it makes her in a sense the chosen one. She and her brother are trying to wrap their heads around why she wasn't killed like the others, but the sister believes the Mass wants her help to restore everything back to the way it once was.
The game is graphically stunning. I was really drawn into the world of submerged. When I did play it did have some performance issues where it would skip for a moment, but after that, it ended
up playing very well and I didn't see any more issues with skipping on my end and this was the game at its ultra settings. I imagine that if I tweaked the game's video settings, I would not have gotten any skipping.
The gameplay itself is rather good. You go around from former town to former town and help the mass out, by returning its seed to another point. This seems to be the just of the gameplay. You get to see what each town did
to the Mass' seed, which probably bought the wrath of the Mass down on them. There are some collectibles in the game for each time you set foot in one of the towns, that you can collect as well.
When it comes to the controls for the game; you can play with a controller or keyboard and mouse. I chose to play the game with the controller as it was easier for me. The controls handle pretty well, I was a little confused on controls for the boat,
but once you figure it out it becomes simple.
Overall, I thought the story and the game were done very well and I do recommend Submerged: Hidden Depths if you are someone
who enjoys story-driven games.
