Like Tate24 said, my first impression was a game like NyxQuest. But then I got disappointed when I saw the images. Don't know about this.

I love playing diving games and nitpicking all the stuff they got wrong.. although to be fair this game never claims to be a diving simulation.. so they'll get away with it...
