So, after months of training and preparation the big day finally arrived . . .

It has to be said The Great North Run lived up to its reputation, and some; 2 days later and I’m still buzzing! Although I have been running for fun for nearly 2 years now this was the first event I have participated in and it certainly won’t be the last.

I picked the North Run as it has a big reputation and being a half marathon is about on the limit of what I can enjoyably run. However, when the number arrived in the post a few months back I suddenly realised that this wouldn’t be quite the same as my usual jogs round Cardiff – it’s not like you can change the route mid-run depending on how you’re feeling and then there’s the fact you’re running alongside others; I’m not overly vain but i’m not sure how motivating it is when people are whizzing past you!

Although the premise is very simple, name your diver, dive in and start exploring, there is real depth and design to the pacing of this game. I genuinely feel relaxed whilst playing and although the gameplay can get monotonous, the game rewards persistance with a string of breathtaking set pieces.

Every time you go underwater the experience is different, the devlopers have done a fantastic job of creating a realistic environment for you to investigate.
