Subnautica: Below Zero is a tricky game to review. The original game was really driven by its strong exploration and sense of discovery. The sequel/spin-off is very much the same. However, if you played the first game, the sense of discovery you'll get from Below Zero will be greatly diminished. Many things have been carried over from the first game: flora, fauna, structures, equipment, resources, consumables, vehicles, etc. That's not to say there isn't any new content. There's plenty. It's just that it all feels very familiar. The first game surprised me in a lot of ways but Below Zero did not and without that sense of discovery, the overall experience felt less memorable.

Ultimately, your enjoyment of Below Zero will vary based on whether or not you played the first game. Even if you have, Below Zero is still an enjoyable game. It will just be less exciting when you're already familiar with so much of the series' content and structure. I guess that's one of the downfalls of making a sequel to a game that relied so heavily on discovery.
