The Sheer Joy of Subnautica

I finished the original Subnautica last year. I've tried Below Zero earlier, but haven't tried the recent versions.

What I do remember strongly from originally playing Subnautica was the sheer joy of those first dives into the watery world. I don't think they can give the true feeling of physically diving, but the bright environment, glowing even at night, was a joy to swim through.

I don't remember getting the same feel from Below Zero. Setting up in a subsurface drop pod also detracts from this too. I'd also encountered the irritants of Below Zero, those damn beasties that steal your tools and I found impossible to follow to get them back.

I'll have to try Below Zero soon again.
The 'e' is silent. BRING BACK "Great job not dying." !!!

    The Safe Shallows were probably my favorite zone in the original game. I totally agree with you on that feeling of wonder when you first get in the water.

    I also agree with you about Below Zero lacking that feeling when I first tried it, but the intro to the game has changed a /lot/ since then. Now I get a heart-pounding thrill of fear/excitement from it. Very different, but I am really digging it. Also getting into the water for the first time feels much better since the new start sequence.
