Depth Hunter 2: Deep Dive
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Depth Hunter 2 offers 25 exciting missions in 3 huge locations around the world. Players will hunt different fish species and face the difficulties of breath-holding spearfishing, an ancient fishing method.
Players will also have to 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 exploration mode.
Spearfishing and Underwater Hunting are ancient fishing and hunting methods, used to catch fish 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 apnea, holding their breath, so have to coordinate their energy carefully while monitoring their prey, especially in tactically challenging hunting situations.

You're in the water swimming and floating around looking for fish. Then you're shooting at fish.
It's not COD, sure. And I might have been able to crack a joke if you were actually shooting at some cod fish. But with all the water in the game, I'm running dry.
The game lacks some excitement to it (unjustifiably so, for that price), and so I tried to treat it as a meditative game. That fails though, with all the shooting and chasing (and occasional avoiding). It's caught between tides, and I suppose it made me all nauseous after a while, after not being able to decipher what I'm supposed to be feeling.
It looks good, yes.
Maybe I'm not ready to appreciate games like this just yet. I leave it like this for now, with this score, before I drown...

Its a worthy game when on sale. Problem is that its repetitive and there really isn't much to do. Sure you hunt some fishes turtles etc but they aren't all that different. To be fair though it does give a decent sim of what I expect hunting to be like. graphics and sounds are good but its just not that exciting.

So I've recently played a couple hours of Deep Hunter 2 and the game itself is ok and I think it costs a reasonable amount of money in order to play it. The graphics are splendid and it really shocked me when i first played it. The gameplay is quite fun and I do recommend the game if you love fishing simulators. All in all the game is acceptable.

I got excited when i saw the description, BUT that was the trick. The max time you can play and find new content is 5 hours. Well, i'll point out that this game offers: You enter the game, look at the map and see 3 big areas [( Thailand -> South Africa reefs -> Bahamas(biggest)]. And while you're there, you will aim on Missions, which include spearfishing, taking pictures, finding specific fish and hunting for treasure. They repeat many times and the time to finish them is around 7 minutes. There are a lot of different fish : sharks, jellyfish, sea turtles and many more. Graphics are also quite fine, detailed and unique, makes you feel like a diver. Sounds are also good. The things which are bad, however, are the boring mechanics and gameplay, which is the reason why the game is so not worth it. Hitbox is broken, the game gets very repetitive and un-entertaining. You can acquire gold by killing any type of fish and use it for upgrades like your swim fins. When you upgrade everything, you become the god of the seas, killing everything instantly, also after that the gold becomes useless.
Short version - Pros: Good graphics and sounds Cons: Repetitive, boring and un-entertaining.
The game has a lot of potential, but lacks a LOT of content. I hope they will either make a sequel or focus more on this game. Hope it helped.
