  1. One of the better-looking WiiWare games, with gameplay to match. Gets difficult though.
  2. There are a few minor gameplay glitches along the way, but they do little to take away from what is an otherwise engaging and enjoyable underwater diving experience and one well worth the 1000 Wii Point asking price.
  3. Despite its initially playful and "relaxing" charm, where you mainly focus on conserving your air, about four levels in Dive decides that the gloves are off and proceeds to slap you around like a cat toying with a barely-alive mouse.

    Dive: The Medes Islands Secret let's you swim around in the most beautiful oceans. The game doesn't cost much and that is the only reason why the lack of variety isn't as annoying as it normally should be.
  5. 75
    It's a slower paced, exploration game where every misstep kills you, yet somehow comes off as a casual, play-it-every-so-often kind of game.
  6. At their second try on WiiWare, the guys at Cosmonaut Games have succeeded in realizing a solid product. Dive: The Medes Islands Secret is an engaging exploration title, with some platform elements which help in providing something different. Maybe it will not be remembered, but yet it represents a good and rewarding experience.

    A game that looks and sounds good but whose premise only holds up for so long.

    These graphics are cool. The diver glides through the water so slow and smooth man it makes the game a mellow affair. And its challenging. You have to use your skills but it;s still chill and smooth. This game instills the zen. Chill out and play it to relax. But you will die horribly regardless. Alone and in an underwater cave. Perhaps your air will run out and you will die flailing. Or maybe a peaceful fishy will suddenly bite you to death leaving your corpse to be lost forever in your underwater tomb. Expand

    Dive: The Medes Island Secret does a great job of creating a certain mood and aesthetic while playing it. The game also has a great soundtrack and art style. Unfortunately the game suffers greatly from repetition and lack of story. Expand
