Depth Hunter offers 25 exciting missions in which players will hunt different fish species and face the difficulties of breath-holding spearfishing, an ancient fishing method. Players will also have to fight predators, can find treasures and get the possibility to take underwater photos to capture the beauty of the simulated, detailed and lively underwater worlds they’re exploring also in a free mode. The game supports motion controllers. Spearfishing and Underwater Hunting are ancient fishing and hunting methods, used to catch fish and shellfish by using a mechanical harpoon. Today, spearfishing is a sports activity in many countries around the world, especially in the UK, around the Mediterranean Sea and in South America. Spearfishers hunt while diving apnoea, holding their breath, so have to coordinate their energy carefully while monitoring their prey, especially in tactically challenging hunting situations.
- 25 different tasks

A Relaxing GameEars14U | Aug. 27, 2013 | See all Ears14U's reviews »
If you are looking for a really big action game, then you will be disappointed with this title. Underwater action? Then purchase "AquaNox, or AquaNox 2:Revelation". Those two titles will be more in what you're looking for. This game is a more "serene" type. The graphics, music, and detail is pretty well done. This is a game that is one I call an "unwind" title. There is a need for this genre game. Hard workday, and you just want to relax? This title will do it for you with it's total underwater environment. The fish you're trying to capture realistically put up a fight for sure. Nobody can truly criticize this game since it is very "unique" and not duplicated anywhere I've seen. That's why I empathized at the start of this review that this title is a relaxing change from your action/adventure type, but still is enough to provide challenging situations.

This is a game where you need to dive and hunt wild animals, find treasures or even explore with freedom and thanks to the awesome graphics and sound effects, it is a very inmersive experience, the fish look very natural and sometimes even they seem alive.
If you can run this game with maximum settings and you have the option to actiave the 3D mode, you will have a glorious visual reward for your eyes.

A unique "game", if you're into relaxing stuff with exploration etc. Don't get too excited though.
One good thing for sure is the graphics, really beautiful, seems like a great engine came out of nowhere, at least for me. You will enjoy wandering around, even if areas could use some more details.
Sadly, gameplay isn't that exciting. Tasks are simple enough to understand what you have to do and where, but there are times where you will be more frustrated than you would expect. Trying to find a specific species that keeps vanishing around, for example.
If you don't expect much gameplaywise and simply want to see some beautiful underwater world and explore a bit, then you might enjoy it. If you expect a "normal" game with a lot of action, explosions, puzzle solving etc :P, then look elsewhere.
