    This thread is dedicated to the awesome game (IMO) that is coming out of Nintendo for launch. While the rest of the launch games are former IPs, we have a newbie here. Previously this game was a tech demo for the original DS, but no game developed from it. The demo was really fun in my opinion. Anyone else really excited for this game?

    It really just looks like a demo to me.

    No substance.
    I don't know why you think it's awesome.

    Agreed with the above two posts. I might give it a shot if I could pirate it.

    This is the kind of game I'd need to try before I bought it. Even if it does get good reviews.

    on the screenshot where it says "move the depth slider" I thought of the 3D-depth slider on the console [​IMG]

    I think it might be fun, sure screenshots may look plain, but so does many rpgs do as well.

    I'll probably try the demo, won't buy the game. Subs just don't interest me.

    this is obviously the worst game being released thus far
    why pay $40 for this when you can get better games

    Hey book cover, there's some people here who want to judge based on you.

    Seriously, instead of everyone jumping on the LOLTHISGAMESUCKS bandwagon. How about we have an open mind about a new game instead of joygasming ourselves over a new release of a game we've all played a hundred times before?

    It's been in development for over 5 years, so you would hope that Nintendo has refined this game. Noticable differences from the demo and the version that was shown last week include waaaaay better visuals, and the addition of a periscope mode. Apparently it has been mentioned that ships are upgradable to some extent as well.

    I understand the skepticism but only time will tell whether or not the game is actually a good value, however it certainly looks fun to me.

    Seems like a primitive 2D Flash game with pain-in-the-ass controls (two independent sliders moved using stylus).
    There were some screenshots with 3D periscope view, but these might be just cutscenes.
    Should go straight to 3DSWare and cost 5$.

    I'm still in my position of "looks really boring"

    The games we've played already are better.
    That's why they get sequels.

    i guess that is true but by the looks of it
    it looks like a plotless game where you shoot boats with a sub
    if that sounds fun then thats good for u
    i just think it wouldnt be fun forr more than 3 days
    i have played many games
    once i beat story mode, most go in a dusty pile
    this sounds like one of those games to me
