Review: Under the Waves is an emotional adventure with some rough edges

Under the Waves is an emotional adventure that handles distressing subject matter in a touching way. There are some issues with the execution, but the overall experience is a memorable one.

  • Beautifully atmospheric environments
  • The soundtrack is an ambient joy
  • A hard-hitting plot that will stick with you
  • Gives players the freedom to find solutions themselves
  • Suffers from numerous gameplay and audio bugs
  • Stan's constant dramatic dialogue pauses are distracting
4 / 5
