I already made a video review of Steel Diver, but to apply for another site I did a written review. Unfortunately, I came just short of getting the position, so the review didn’t go through.
With almost every Nintendo platform launch, there has been at least one title from Nintendo that is on everyone’s list to purchase. But with the Nintendo 3DS, there isn’t that one must have title. Pilot Wings Resort, while a recognizable franchise, doesn’t exactly have the heavy hitting name that many other Nintendo franchises hold. Nintendogs + Cats definitely skews a bit more toward an expanded audience. So that leaves Steel Diver. This submarine semi-simulation game takes touch screen controls to a whole new depth with a unique control scheme. And with one of the master minds from the early Star Fox titles behind it, surely nothing can go wrong… Right?
