Fifteen minutes in I'm finding the controls to be really cumbersome, dizzying, and disorienting. Kinda hard to tell where water ends and the surface begins. From down under you see something, swim towards it, and then it's above water! The graphics to me leave a lot to be desired, too. Trying to swim alone is work. Aiming at enemies is super-sensitive and hard. Perhaps a map inset to give you an idea where you're supposed to go would be good, but then again, it might make it too easy. As it is, I'm a bit frustrated in general trying to navigate around, though with enough practice it may get a lot easier. Seeing my shadow everywhere kinda sucks too. Looks like another diver. Gonna have to put some more time into it to see if I can get better at this, but this is what I've noticed so far.
