Product Details:

Steel Diver is a new action-packed submarine combat game from Nintendo that immerses players in the 3D action with unique game controls and lush 3D environments. The player can choose from three different submarines, each with touch-screen control panels that players will have to master to guide them through treacherous undersea caverns while engaging enemy submarines, dodging depth charges and battling massive sea creatures. Steel Diver also takes advantage of the built-in gyroscope of the Nintendo 3DS system. The combination of 3D game play and one-of-a-kind controls makes for an immersive combination that must be experienced to be believed.

  • Use touch-screen controls to guide submarines through lush, undersea 3D environments.
  • Branching paths, split-second decisions and attacks from enemy ships make for a thrilling undersea adventure.
  • Multiple ways to play
    • Missions: Players manipulate control panels on the touch screen to control the sub's speed, depth and pitch, and to fire torpedoes as they make their way toward the end of each level. If the sub takes damage and starts taking on water, players can use the stylus on the touch screen to stop the leak. There is also a time attack mode that challenges the player to get through levels as quickly as possible.
    • Periscope Strike: The gyroscope for the Nintendo 3DS system allows players to control the periscope view by rotating their bodies. Players use the touch screen to fire a well-placed torpedo and take enemies out.
    • Steel Commander: In this two-player strategy mode, a local wireless connection pits player against player. The game is a top-down, turn-based "chess-like" game that puts players in command of a fleet of ships and a sub. Once players locate a ship, they enter Periscope Mode and blast it out of the water.
  • Immersive undersea graphics
    • The 3D in Steel Diver makes players feel like they are peering into an aquarium, with the action unfolding right before their eyes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good game. Beautiful Graphics for 3DS This is a good looking game for the 3DS. The 2D type game, has cool scenery behind the sub and good underwater physics as well. Though it may look great, the game has a limited amount of levels. I completed the game in a short time and didn't have too much to do after that. Its a cool game that I would still recommend to a friend. P.S. There is another Steel Diver game that came out just recently called Steel Diver Sub Wars. It is a 3D version of the original 2D version and it is ALOT more fun and you can play it for free at the Nintendo Eshop ($10 full version). You can explore 3D underwater caves and fight Online 4 vs 4 with a rank system that keeps you wanting to get higher and unlock more subs. I learned morse code FAST in this game as it is how you chat with other players. There is 18 subs plus 5 historical DLC subs in the game.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from short and pretty boring game I have had this game just lying around since I got my 3ds. Decided to give it a try to see if it was worth the game play. Well I finished it in just under 2 days. Was rather disappointed in how short of a game it was and how slow the gameplay is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cant believe only 10 bucks for pre owned i cannot believe this is only 10 dollars! I love this, it just gets really hard. When i let my friend play it he said he expected it to be 30$ for new and 25$ for used at gamestop but i told him it was 20$ for new and 10$ for used and he said he would buy that right away. There is alot of crazy combat and sidescrolling shooter which makes it get kinda hectic. the lasting appeal is fine as long as you like to replay levels. Only downside is there is only 20 levels in all modes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good work nintendo! Ok i can say that this game should have more content to it. It is a side scroller that has the controls of the submarine. Contains a adictive battleship that can be played mulitplayer or single (download play). The game also contains time trails. This game really shows off what the 3ds can do with its diverse environments. Good work nintendo!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would've been a good eShop title. Steel diver has an odd control scheme using only the touch screen to change the angle of the submarine, to go up/down, and to move forward, backwards. The game is very short, and it can get boring and sometimes very difficult. I bought this game when it first came out for $40. It definitely was not worth it, however this would have been a good eshop title for around $2. Some of the visuals are pretty, and the submarine scope mode using the gyro sensor is a blast and is actually more fun than the campaign. The somewhat "battle ship" style mini game is okay, but didn't play it for more that 30 minutes.
