Summary: " Steel Diver " is a mixed bag. It offers a selection of games that are all very different and entertaining in their own way, but all varied that it is hard to imagine them being appealing to anyone person.
Excerpt: As a launch game, Steel Diver intrigued me prior to release given the premise of controlling a submarine on a series of missions. The only game that I can think of that closely resembles this premise is the Seawolf series of arcade games.
Conclusion: In short, Steel Diver is an extremely underwhelming launch game. The eight missions can be knocked out in about 2 to 3 hours and the two player Steel Commander mode is buggy in addition to boring when playing against the AI.
Conclusion: Steel Diver is rather an odd little game, and one that is destined to split opinions. The challenge/reward loop will simply not click for many, with the touch-screen controls being little more than a clunky irritant attached to a slow-paced and slightly directionless game.
