Reviews for AquaNox
An often overlooked solid game.mrmotinjo | May 22, 2013 | See all mrmotinjo's reviews »
The sequel to the old (but gold) Archimedean Dynasty, Aquanox was, at the time, the only game to use all the gimmicks of the then-new GeForce 3 video card.
Sadly, that's pretty much all people remember about it nowadays.
Interesting story, conveyed through lengthy (and slightly cheesy) inter-mission dialogues, combined with a very unique setting (underwater futuristic submarine combat) and a choice of various vessels, weapons and gadgets made for a rather solid atmosphere.
The music, while not really being everybody's cup of tea, really helped accentuate the fighting and setting the overall frantic atmosphere of the game.
Enemy AI is rather unforgiving, providing a solid challenge throughout the missions, and the missions themselves provide enough variety to keep them from becoming repetitive.
It being one of the cheapest games GMG currently has to offer, it has my recommendation for being, in my opinion, a rather solid and unique FPS.
