It seems that every time I am doing well, avoiding obstacles, getting the hang of things, a shark eats me (that's your punishment for going out of bounds). I found this extremely frustrating. I had no idea that shark attacks occurred so frequently. It's almost like the game is working against you, as soon as you begin to learn the ropes, the environment reaches out and holds you back. Especially when there is such a limited amount of gameplay to begin with. Bottom Line: One of the most original games on the market. Fantastic graphics, kick-ass soundtrack, extremely limited gameplay. Runs very choppy even on high end machines, unless it's in a small window or has many options turned off. Shark attacks happen more often than in 'Jaws'.
