What Gamespot Users have to say about Steel Diver

    Very simplistic and pretty slim in content, but it's an enjoyable relaxing game.

    I was interested in trying Steel Diver when I saw a video review of the gameplay, and how nice it looked, even with a simple presentation, it just look like something I would like to try. I was able t...

    Give it some time, and you'll find that Steel Diver is an enjoyable, thoughtfully constructed launch title for the 3DS.

    I remember when Steel Diver was bashed by critics and audiences upon its release as a launch title, mainly because it was based on a tech demo for the original DS. It's undeserved, because not many pe...

    Steel Diver's lack of content and tedious gameplay isn't worth more than a bargain bin price

    "Tedious" is right

    Rated on March 30, 2011 by jeffreytz

    Wish there'd been reviews before I pre-ordered this game, the 3D feels like a bolt on (its just the backgrounds) and the only thing that's even mildly fun is the periscope missions, but those are real...

    Get it from the bargain bin in another month for 1/2 the price.

    It's a shame that so many people are going to overlook this underrated gem

    Rated on June 10, 2012 by dzimm

    I've read the complaints about Steel Diver: "It's too slow and tedious!" "There's not enough content!" "It's too hard!" "It's too easy!" "The controls are too fiddly!" Well, none of that is true....

    Worthwhile at a Bargain Price

    Rated on August 21, 2011 by GeekyDad

    I kind of rank Steel Diver alongside Pilot Wings Resort as being one of those 3DS games I was curious to check out though not terribly excited for. It looked decent. I'm glad I finally rented it from ...
