Subnautica was very well-received upon release. It received a 9.1/10 rating from IGN,[2] where reviewer TJ Hafer praised the game's tension as provided by some of the monsters underwater, which he believed separated it from other open-world explore/craft games like Minecraft. On Steam,[3] the game has a user score of "overwhelmingly positive" aggregated from over 40,000 users.
