About This Game

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.

A very relaxing game where you are given various "missions" in each of the deep water areas of the world.

Upgrades are available and, if you perform well on the missions (or catch enough fish or find treasure) then you can afford new things like longer spools for your spear, more accuracy, longer diving times, etc.

The diversity of the things you can do (from photographing reefs and specific fish to a "catch as many as you can" timed mission) the game keeps you stocked with things to do as you listen to relaxing music and explore the ocean's depths.

Definitely recommend, especially if you're looking for a relaxing game.

Pretty diving game without long-term motivation

First I tried to play this game in German, but there are sooooo many translation mistakes - partly hilarious, but I switched to English. As I said the graphics are pretty. The controls are "okay". You can try to play this game with your controller, but this is hard. The assignment of keys is unintuitive. You pick up things with the same key, which you use to take photos or shoot your harpoon. The length of the story is 3-4 hours. I got nearly all achievements within 3 hours, but all Trading cards dropped after 4,3 hours.

Overall this game is way too easy. There is no challenge. I want a game which is more like the diving sessions in Assassins Creed IV (+ hunting fish). This would be a great diving Simulator. I will NOT spend my time to collect 500 coins or 100 treasures, hidden somewhere on each map in this game. Same with my 2 remaining achievements: "Spend 24 hours under water" WHAT THE F*CK! "Swim underwater for 100km" NOPE!

This is an entertaining Diving Simulator (for 3 hours!) Don't try to get all achievements. This is frustrating.
Buy it in a bundle, or while it's cheap.

6/10

Depth Hunter 2 is a relaxing game where you explore the fishy depths. Its like a walking simulator only for diving. Instead of just swimming around, there is treasure to find, or take pictures, and catching fish is fun too. The world feels very alive, the way the fish move seems very well done. Taking pictures is very rewarding there is an excellent feature of being able to make them your desktop as well. There are multiple places to visit for diving that have many attractions under water from ships, to planes, all kinds of things that make exploring fun.

I rate this 9/10. But to be realistic, the game's price is about 8,99$/eur

This is a very pleasing game. As casual as can be...nothing really attacks you or anything (except for those ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ crabs, but whatevr, lol). Basically, you swim around catching fish, finding treasure, and taking pictures. You can automatically turn those pictures into screen savers if you like, which is a nice feature. You can upgrade your various gear as you gain cash via all the aforementioned activities. There are also quests which are basically catch x amount of this type of fish, find this many treasure in an area, etc...

Essentially, the game just gives you a nice relaxing experience with soothing music and beautiful visuals, with some stuff to do to ehance the experience. You can unlock free roam via completing areas, which then gives you total freedom to just check stuff out.

At this point, I have finished all the area quests, and probably will get the 95% accuracy achievemnt in my next playthrough. That said, I'll probably keep this one downloaded for those times where I really dont know what I want to play or just want to unwind a bit.

Very much recommended. Probably 8 speared fishies out of 10 with a photo of a blue whale mixed in.

I am not sure whether this game is underrated or misunderstood and misrepresented. If you think of it as a game it is probably 7/10 due mainly to its great graphics. If you think of it as a casual diving simulator it is, in my opinion at least a 9/10. The gameplay sends you on quests that you must finish to unlock other diving areas. The quests include spearfishing, photography, and treasure hunting in open ocean and caves. You also gather coins from the ocean floor as well as from the quest rewards in order to upgrade your speargun, camera, fins etc. In my opinion the neatest part of the game is the photography. It is fun swimming around trying to get a great pic of a beautiful fish with a background of a wreck or coral reef. Then later you can go through your album and make them your pc background.

One of the main cons I see to this game is working towards a perfect game. Three of the achieves are going to be a grind now that I have run out of quests and new dive spots to unlock. Though living as far from the ocean as I am I will probably never go scuba diving. So for 15 bucks this was a very fun experience for me.

The graphics are lovely. The music is a bit repetitive but peaceful and pleasant. It is a great option for those who do not want their children playing shoot em ups and don't mind if they spear fish. It is not gruesome. The sharks don't bite. So if you are looking for a fun dive experience I would give it a try.
