By 2050, humanity has finally colonized Mars thanks to the efforts of one man, Jeff Murray. To avoid Mars’ high radiation levels and inhospitable temperature changes, he built a city underground. This city was named Mars MPO. Free of the constraints that often plagued businesses and researchers on Earth, scientists and entrepreneurs flocked to MPO.

Recently, Dr. Albert West has migrated to MPO at the personal invitation of Mr. Murray. West has been working on a cure for Alzheimer's disease in a race to save his wife, Jennifer, from dementia. His efforts are cut short; a lab accident leads to an accusation of murder and a prompt prison sentence.

We join Dr. West a little over a year into his prison sentence. It’s been a week since the guards mysteriously vanished. Dr. West is about to find out why.

Subterrain reviews and comments

Super game no question! But solo a bit desolate .. Since it's not as exciting as a deatspace on ps3, just in the look and bearer! Please ask for the co-op and what I also find a bit doff ... Who you have played it at times 1 month nich and wants to continue with his savegame ... Then you get overwhelmed! .Where do I have to go .... Where was I last ... What do I have to do .... How does the basics function work again ... And and and and ... You can clearly look in the tutorial but I don't like anything like that about complex games! That already bothered me about big games like FF, even who it is not so extreme! _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Super sounded good invigonable and super control but so play still missing is spreading partite zb fire something would be cool! But otherwise everything cool.

At the very Beginning I would have recommended the Game to everyone, but after I tormented myself through the second Place until I finally got a little Bit further, I didn't even find the Game so interesting. In theory, it is always the same, you arrive in one Place and then have to torment You through 5 floors, looking for the damn power Switch on each Floor, so that you can recognize everything more than just 10m and use the Elevator on the side. In addition, you can take all sorts of Scrap metal with you to Recycle so that you can make useful scrap from it, but this is limited by both Quantity And Weight. By the Way, you have to pay attention to Oxygen and temperature and when the Containers are empty then you have to go back to the Base, which wastes an unnecessary amount of Time. Verdict: Good for Starters, but later very repetitive

Exciting Atmosphere, complex Survival and Crafting Mechanics and a captivating root Mechanics make up the Game. I can't say much About the Story yet. Only so much that one should not skip the Snippets of information, since one often receives important Information (from which one can profit well later) in the found records. I find the Fact that time really plays a Role, Which is particularly exciting. Once you have left the first Section, you come to the central Control room, where the Energy Generator for the entire Martian Station is also located. This gradually loses Energy and from then on you have to think carefully about which Stations you supply with Energy. Although you can repair and improve the Reactor Parts, it all costs resources and Software Upgrades that you first have to find In the individual Stations. At the same time, the Disease is spreading more and more. Something can Be done about this, too. But there remains a Sense that really every Action is important and should be well considered. This Feeling Rarely conveys games-because yes, if you adjust Stupidly, it can happen that the Reactor completely goes down and you get stuck on some Station. Since there seems to be only one Storage Level, you can destroy your complete Game and you would have to start over. But only that makes the Feeling of the Game so realistic. The Sound is okay, but I don't like the Music so much. The Graphics and Controls are Also fit for purpose at best. If you can live with it, you have a really complex, lively, exciting Game here.
