Stranded Deep Review
Posted: 3 months ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.
As you gain more materials you can settle on an island and build a shelter and raft to explore the ocean. You harvest resources and combine them to invent equipment. These resources and your ability to carry them are very limited, so need to be managed and prioritized.
You also need to look after your general health, hunger, thirst, and sleep. The different elements and weather you face will affect this. Thirst is particularly important, and hydration sources are scarce so you need to learn the skills to craft water collectors. Hunger is also important, so you must catch fish and hunt.
Rated PEGI 16+ for moderate violence toward animals. Most of the violence seen is non-realistic looking, however when trying to kill a wild boar using a bow, the animal squeals every time it is struck by an arrow, and there are some blood effects. When the boar eventually falls to the ground, after being hit numerous times, it continues to squeal and shake its legs before dying. The player can kill one Boar or as many as deemed necessary.
ESRB TEEN for Blood, Crude Humor, Mild Violence.
