VGRevolutionThe bar for arcade games is constantly being raised. With such great titles with interesting gameplay concepts like Warp or Braid it seems that arcade games are where innovation and creativity bloom in unexpected ways.
On the other hand arcade games are becoming graphically as appealing as full retail titles. If you think back about what an “arcade game” really was just a few short years ago, I wouldn’t be surprised if the following generations have a completely different view of what an arcade game is, compared to me.

|Save & Quit An underwater third-person sci-fi shooter isn’t something you see every day. That is, unless you pick up Deep Black: Reloaded by indie developer Biart games. The year is 2047, and the world is divided into three main factions… Read Full Review||75/100|
|Midlife Gamer Deep Black: Reloaded brings familiar, almost clichéd, mechanics to an original setting and the overall result is remarkably fresh. Sporting an aesthetic similar to Dead Space as well as intense gun battles with a cover system similar to Gears of War, it would be easy to dismiss Deep Black: Reloaded as a third-person action clone, but the underwater exploration and combat is a unique focus that certainly helps it carve out its own identity.

|LoadGame Overall the game is enjoyable, it’s not going to change the genre in any way, but it’s a well made and fun romp with the added bonus of those amusing cut-scene chatters to keep you ploughing along. Read Full Review||60/100|

|The Digital Fix In a world of massive annualised blockbusters and over-hyped underdeveloped gaming Goliaths it’s good to see a game come out of nowhere and offer hope of perhaps a fresh and innovative gaming experience. That’s the excitement I felt when I was offered to review Deep Black: Reloaded and discover a potential hidden gem. Deep Black: Reloaded is a third person cover based shooter with a small twist thrown in, that it’s also an underwater third person cover based shooter. After my time with Deep Black: Reloaded I can say that it is pure in its attempt to deliver a focused gaming experience reviving some of that simplicity we used to have say ten plus years ago where games were games and not intimidating massively multiplayer, first person action role playing games with wood cutting or cake baking simulators on the side Read Full Review||60/100|

|PixelScribes Occasionally a game is created that defines a genre. We’ve seen it with Minecraft, creating it’s own building blocks type gameplay that spawned countless copy cats, and Uncharted, introducing a new generation to the wonders of action adventure. These rare gems set the standard for future generations of games to come, nesting themselves in the back of consumers minds as they link back to how the latest game compares to the greats. Unfortunately for Russian indie developer Biart, Deep Black: Reloaded isn’t one of them… Read Full Review||40/100|
|IncGamers There’s a tendency, as with films, for people to become fascinated with low-scoring releases. I’m going to urge you to resist that feeling for Deep Black: Reloaded. There’s no discernable ironic enjoyment to be gleaned from this game, and it’s certainly not fun-bad like Deadly Premonition. It’s just plain old depressing bad-bad. Like drowning.
