Deep Black: Episode One has been in production for what feels like ages. The game was initially announced like four years ago, and back then it was known under the code name Underwater Wars (or U-Wars). Since then, though, development notes here and there slipped out, but it almost seemed like the game would never release. But, last week, it finally showed up, unannounced, as if 505 Games was slipping it under the door just to see who noticed. After going through it, I can say that it has its problems, but it also has a few intuitive additions that make it stand out from the pack. Whether that’s enough to make it worth a purchase depends on how much you can stomach the problems.
