Developers are to often trying to revolutionise one particular aspect of their game, water effects particularly with this one, and completely forget about everything else.

The company who made a game about a sinking ship are now a sinking ship. Brillant.

Not the kind of reaction id want to have, after shelling out 9-10 pounds "okayish". Sounds like this was their last stab at making the company work, and they just didnt have tech know how, or game design skills, to survive in what is a hard , hard
