"Massive has set a new bar of measurable aesthetic luster in the PC market" - 7/10, IGN
The water is no longer calm.
The undersea world has undergone a transformation from tranquil environment to a place of unspeakable violence, graphic murder and horrific danger. It is now the 27th century and mercenaries such as 'Emerald' Dead Eye Flint ply their deadly trade among the warring forces of man and nature. Gamers take the role of Flint, taking command of a loosely aligned force of fellow mercenaries who hire themselves out to the powerful leaders of this inhospitable world. Players fight vicious battles against crazed mercenaries, mighty military forces and hideous sea monsters. The frantic pace never lets up in Aquanox: True adrenaline-rush action for today's gamers.

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.
