Surviving Mars is very easy to play with a controller, as the game implements variety of ease of life features for the controller. With handy shortcuts and game helping in selecting near by object by cycling through them. The DS4’s touchpad could be used as mouse emulation but that opportunity goes a miss in this game.

There is a lot of lore in the game which are provided via mysteries. These mysteries involve finding key artifacts scattered around the planet. These mysteries may help or hinder the progress of the colony. Again, a refreshing take at this old genre.
