    But even if you are looking for a nice game and not a fan of see diving that game will not disappoint, since it's not only a game about fish hunting, but also about treasure hunting.
    The game may be not your best gaming experience of your life, but will be quite cool and unique.

Water can be quite impressive when rendered correctly and seeing how new games handle it always seems to interest me; something that began ever since I first laid eyes on the 'Nintendo 64' version of 'Wave Race'. Then I came to realize that the 'Depth Hunter' series were originally mobile games with micro-transactions up the wazoo and I was immediately turned off. Surprisingly enough however, this game is actually quite enjoyable if you're in the mood for a serene experience with a minimal challenge, and don't worry, none of those pesky micro-transactions made their way into the PC version, either.

    The atmospheres in 'Depth Hunter 2' are gorgeous, the music is relaxing, the game works with a gamepad, and the controls and character animations are quite realistic in feel. There are five areas to hunt within and challenges range from snapping photographs of creatures and shipwreck, to hunting fish and collecting treasure at the bottom of the ocean. An XP system is in place as well, although I'm not quite sure what it does, but it's always nice to see a character leveling up. Purchases can also be made to upgrade equipment, such as a larger USB stick to hold more pictures, a longer spear, bigger oxygen tank, etc. So there is some depth to the game, although minimal, no pun intended.

    The two downsides to this game are the fact that the campaign is short and can be beaten in a few hours, and the lack of any story whatsoever. Personally, the lack of story didn't bother me at all though, as I don't really see how the game would benefit from one. In conclusion, I can definitely see why people don't like this game, but for me, sometimes it's fun to just turn on a game and admire the atmosphere. So if you're looking for something with some action or a challenge, look elsewhere. The price-tag is a bit high, so I would wait until this game goes on sale to pick it up, but other than that 'Depth Hunter 2' is quite enjoyable after a long day with a nice cold beer.

    Mellow game, pretty much point and click with leveling. I mean it's a spear fishing game for crying out loud, so you get what you get.Mellow game, pretty much point and click with leveling. I mean it's a spear fishing game for crying out loud, so you get what you get.

    BUT...very nice break from the hectic FPS and RPG games. Nice music, casual pace, lots of challenges and decent graphics.

    I wouldn't pay more than $5 - $7 dollars for this, but if you find it for that price and you're a gamer like me who likes a little down-time game now and then, well worth it.
