The stupidity inherent in Divekick's design is only matched by the joy you feel when you dominate an opponent five to nothing. At Sony's event, the developers showed off their custom Divekick arcade pad, which honestly felt more like two great big breasts you could tap to make your crudely drawn avatar... jump and kick.

Seriously, that's all there is to the game. What more can I say? Who is this for?!
