    Playing as a diver or a shark is a fast, fun, and frantic experience, and each has its own feel and set of skills.

    Shark vs. human in a tense atmospheric setting. Unfortunately it lacks variety.

    It's great fun, but after 15 it looses it appeal. But that may change with mods.

    Depth delivers thrills, making you feel like a dangerous hunter or a target. It's a nice change of pace from more traditional multiplayer games. It's only a shame that there's not more content.

    Depth is a Left 4 Dead clone sunk by its sea of flaws.

    Depth is the closest I've come to experiencing the kind of fear a game about killer sharks should generate since my younger days of playing Jaws on the NES. Future updates that clean up bugs and add new content could help it breach the surface and approach greatness. Until then, however, Depth floats listlessly in the ocean current.

    Depth is certainly a game with an interesting idea but developed in a rather rough manner, leaving more than a doubt not only on the production value but also on the idea of the asymmetric gameplay, which is apparently riding the wave of enthusiasm born with Evolve.

I have wanted it for quite a while, I love the PvP concept with different species. I was blown away with how good it is. My time with it has been very well spent. This game is INTENSE! This is what I wanted from Evolve, which was disappointing. Does Depth still have some rough edges? Yes. Does it matter when you're playing? NOT ONE BIT! :D

    Playing as a diver is stressful, in a good way. They've done a great job on the atmosphere and feeling of it. Hearing your heartbeat speed up is a great indicator of the increased danger, I love it. It's never a completely one-sided battle, sharks are fast, divers have tech. Currently no difference in the divers that I can see, it's all about your load-out.

    The sharks all have different strength and weaknesses. Playing as a shark is fantastic, really gives you that "hunting" feel. Find a shark you're good at and stick with it, there are a lot of differences. I go Great White, my friend I played with goes Tiger Shark.

    I honestly enjoy both modes equally, they give such different experiences, it's almost hard to believe it's the same game.

    Developers seem to be putting good work into the game, updates are well-stocked with features and fixes.

Over 100 user reviews, general rating is "Very positive". I absolutely love it too! I think it could become one of the biggest indie hits of the year.
    Depth is in essence an asymmetrical multiplayer-only game about treasure hunting divers and sharks trying to kill them. It's polished for indie, and very well balanced. Playing the shark is absolute blast, but playing a diver is fun too, scary kind of fun.
    There are two Great White sharks (played from 3rd person) pitted against four human divers (1st person). Sharks have superior speed, vision and strength and razor sharp teeth, but divers have waterproof guns and other gadgets. The game takes place 100% underwater, in 5 different maps (free DLC maps coming later). Divers are trying to escort a safe-cracking ROV robot through waypoints, collect treasure, sticking together and trying to fight back sharks lurking in the darkness. A heartbeat sound indicates how close a shark is, but not it's direction, which creates paranoia and fear in diver players. Sharks can destroy some roofs and walls, to create new attack routes. Divers are slower than sharks, but have assault rifles, pistols, nets, harpoon, mines, flares and such. Even a small vessels, which can be used to drive around. Sharks have "Evolutions", which mean unlocking faster speed, better vision etc, but both sides start every round with nothing (Counter-Strike style) and must earn their unlocks. Divers use treasure they collected from safes (+ some extra laying around), sharks get an Evolution Point for each kill. Humans need to stick together, and getting separated from group usually means that you're going to be shark food, especially against competent shark players. Sharks work together too, for example other one creating distraction by thrashing a wall to draw attention.

    All of the maps are mostly very dark since it's deep sea, and flashlight + flares light the way. The game is very polished in both visual and gameplay sense, only thing I could nitpick about is the system to join and search for games. It has had occasional joining problems at launch, I'm sure they will fix that ASAP.
    I highly recommend this title. It has fairly unique idea, visceral and tense action, scary atmosphere (for diver team) and lot of teamwork... kind of Left 4 Dead vibes here, but different. High polish, good balance and it seems to have strong community and support from devs. Ready up your wetsuit and jump in!

    I guess if you not a big company who pays professional reviewers you wont get a good and honest review. If you take a really bad game likeI guess if you not a big company who pays professional reviewers you wont get a good and honest review. If you take a really bad game like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare you see there is a huge difference how users rated the game and critics. Im not sure how it works? Do they really get paid or is it advertisement which they wont get if the review is bad? Expand

    Screw the critics! For the price this game is awesome! Sure, there aren't that many maps and yeah, there's some content deprivation, but otherScrew the critics! For the price this game is awesome! Sure, there aren't that many maps and yeah, there's some content deprivation, but other than that, this game can get nerve wreckingly fun in an instant! xD

    Me and my buddies, after watching a couple of YouTube videos, decided to all chip in and buy the 4 pack. We pretty much went crazy from there, and we practically played this game every time we met up after class. We laughed, we cried, we conquered. Even now, we're still playing!
    Even if you don't have friends to play with, the community has tons of people (or at least in my experience), so finding someone to play with shouldn't be a problem.

    For $25, I think this game is worth it. If you're THAT cheap, just wait for the Christmas sale in a few weeks.

    Hopefully, they'll add more content like extra sharks, gear, and player models, but still, I had a blast, and I highly recommend this game to anyone and their mothers.
