Steel Diver :: Nintendo 3DS Game Review

Steel Diver :: Nintendo 3DS Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Apr 13, 2011

Steer your submarine through treacherous routes in this first party game! Will Steel Diver make big waves or sink? Read our review to find out!

Steel Diver is one of the 3DS launch games from the Big N itself. It is a driving simulation of sorts that lets your steer a submarine from a sidescrolling viewpoint. Included in the game are various modes, such as the turn based strategy game and first person periscope mini-game, that will let you try out lots of different things with the 3DS.

Steel Diver? More Like Slow Driver

In the main mode for Steel Diver, you must guide your submarine from a start point to an end point using the various controls on the touch screen. You can control the horizontal direction and speed and also guide the sub up and down. The subs generally move slowly and your directions are carried out gradually, which means you will need to look ahead and plan your moves carefully. At first, the game may seem slow and boring, but it quickly gets harder and more addicting.

There are three different subs to use with different abilities in movement and firepower. You will need to avoid obstacles like water mines and homing missiles and take out rocks in your way with torpedoes across seven missions.


This Diver is Gold

Seven missions isn't that much and you'll wish that the game had more levels and more bosses for you to defeat. Luckily, there are extra modes that you can enjoy, such as the Advance Wars-like tactical mode, where you can play against other people, and periscope mode, where you use your 3DS like a periscope and spin around to find enemies and destroy them.

As usual, the 3D effects for the 3DS isn't super impressive or necessary with Steel Diver. Torpedos may shoot towards you, but it isn't as exciting as it sounds. Still, even with 3D mode turned off, Steel Diver is a fun, but short, game.
