Sponsored by "Body Glove" brand of bodysuit, Bluewater Hunter is an interesting underwater hunting game that immerses you in the dangerous world of freediving. Your goal is to hunt the world's largest trophy gamefish in 6 dive locations, using realistic equipment and taking into account the laws of physics.

The game does a good job of modelling underwater environments in 3D. The adrenaline rush of seeing a giant gamefish emerge from the murky waters is palpable, and it's quite exciting to see a menacing shark coming out of the blue, looking for blood. As far as I can tell, game physics is reasonably realistic. For example, you have to always watch your oxygen level while underwater, and deal with the perennial balance between weight and usability while you choose equipment. Dangerous predators make the game more challenging, and you can toggle the difficulty level if you find the game too hard or too easy (there are 3 skill levels in total). Dozens of equipment, 14 species of gamefish, and solid gameplay makes this one of the more interesting fishing games on the market. It is repetitive in places, but it should not deter fans of the sport who take the adage "patience is a virtue" to heart. Recommended!
