Depth is a multiplayer game which blends heart pounding tension and visceral action in a dark aquatic world. The periods of tension separate combat - which is visceral, chaotic, bloody, and fast-paced. Divers must explore the depths of the ocean for valuable treasure while fending off attacks from ravenous sharks. Shark players stalk and bide their time for opportune windows of attack, lunging in and ripping apart unwary divers.
Since this is the first review for this game, here is a quick overview of what it's all about:
This is a pure multiplayer game where you either take the side of the divers or the sharks. There are three modes:
A hide-and-seek game where... at the beginning there is only one shark to look for the divers who are hiding. A found and eaten diver becomes a shark himself and helps his killer. The megalodon hunt, where all divers play against each other and try to score the most points at the end of the round. The points are scored by killing the Megalodon swimming around on the map and then slipping into his role, whose task is to eat the divers and score points. If another diver kills the Megadolon player, that diver becomes the new prehistoric shark. I personally find the two mods mentioned above quite funny, but rather boring. The really exciting mode is called: Blood and Gold. There are 4 divers and 2 sharks. (If these items are not completely filled out with players, AI bots can take over their role. )
If you are a diver, you have to guide the underwater robot S. T. E. V. E. through the map and if possible not be eaten. You can find gold everywhere that you sell at S. T. E. V. E. and for which you can buy weapons (harpoons, underwater rifles etc. ) to defend yourself against the nasty predators. You win the round as a diver either by using up the 30 respawn tickets of the sharks first by shooting them 30 times, or by bringing S. T. E. V. E. back to the ship and thus completing the dive successfully. (Which logically requires that you have enough respawn tickets yourself. ) Playing as a diver is cool, but if you only had this option, I couldn't play this game for more than a few hours. Luckily you can also slip into the role of a shark. A white, hammer, mako, thresher or tiger shark is available. Although I was suspicious of the sharks at the beginning, I now enjoy them incredibly, because I find the way to play with the different sharks very innovative and original. As you can imagine, the goal of the sharks is simply to eat the divers as often as possible and use up their tickets so that they all die before they can complete their mission.
Conclusion: If you are looking for an original multiplayer game, which you can play together with some friends, this is the place to be!
