In Green Hell on Nintendo Switch, you are thrown deep into the emerald and impenetrable Amazonian rain forest. The green hell. Your goal is to survive in the depths of a nightmarish environment using truly intuitive means to escape. Having only a radio at your disposal you will follow the familiar voice of a loved one through this endless and inhospitable jungle, unveiling bit by bit how you got there in the first place. What you discover will be worse than what you fought so hard to survive.
You are left alone in the jungle without any food or equipment, trying to survive and find your way out. Clinging to life, the player is set on a journey of durability as the effects of solitude wear heavy not only on the body but also the mind. How long can you survive against the dangers of the unknown?
Green Hell Nintendo Switch Review
On this journey, you won’t get any help from the outside world. Equipped only with your bare hands you’ll have to learn actual survival techniques to build shelters, make tools, and craft weapons in order to hunt and defend yourself. Constantly threatened by the jungle you’ll fight with both wild animals and tropical sicknesses. Players will also have to face the traps set by your own mind and fears that crawl in the darkness of the endless jungle.
This is an amazing survival game but I feel it lacks depth. The visuals are splendid and leave you almost wanting to be stranded in that jungle. There isn’t a huge variety of animals, and as such feel a little repetitive.
The requirement to feed drink etc was happening too frequently for me. It takes away from the gameplay enjoyment. The damage you take from venous spiders/snakes is overkill and can get a little annoying at times. The building system was very clunky. This was down to issues with placement being very limited.
The biggest failure for me was the lack of exploring to do in the game. There isn’t a vast amount of trinkets and treasures to try and find. So You aren’t encouraged to explore, which I think would keep people playing for longer.
Overall, Green Hell on Nintendo Switch is visually engaging but lacks the depth ingame. Finally, check out our site for other reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
