Informazioni sul gioco

Le acque si sono agitate.

Il mondo sottomarino ha subito una trasformazione; dall'ambiente tranquillo che era, è divenuto sede di violenze ineffabili, omicidi impressionati e tremendi pericoli. Ci troviamo attualmente nel XXVII secolo e mercenari come "Emerald" Dead Eye Flint esercitano i loro scambi mortali tra le forze in guerra dell'uomo e della natura. Il giocatore assumerà il ruolo di Flint, prendendo il comando di una forza di compagni mercenari, parzialmente allineati, che prestano servizio per i potenti leader di questo mondo inospitale. Combatterai brutali battaglie contro mercenari impazziti, potenti forze militari e orribili mostri marini. Il ritmo frenetico non si placa mai in Aquanox: pura azione adrenalinica per i giocatori di oggi.



Key feature:

  • Azione fondata su missioni, con battaglie dalla violenza sbalorditiva, in singolo oppure in team
  • Grafica 3D real-time superbamente modellata. Un mondo sottomarino ricco di dettagli, tra ripide catene montuose, caverne intricate, correnti mortali e luccicanti città subacquee
  • 34 pericolose missioni, garantiscono ore di giocabilità action
  • Opzioni multiplayer LAN e Internet, per avvincenti battaglie di squadra e deathmatch
  • Oltre 40 incredibili nemici e mostri pericolosi da affrontare fino alla fine
  • Colonna sonora 3D d'atmosfera

AquaNox
Underwater Flight Simulator, Shooter
a spoiler-free review

Release Date: 30 November, 2001
Rating: Recommended

It’s the 27th century on the planet Aqua, formerly known as Earth. Nuclear war and radiation fallout have rendered the surface uninhabitable, though there isn’t really much of a surface left after the polar ice caps melted and flooded the planet. Humans still survive and even thrive in underwater stations and cities, but no one has seen the surface in centuries.

- Gameplay -
AquaNox plays like a flight simulator combined with a shooter in an underwater setting. Gameplay is comprised of several linear missions with set objectives that give Credits to you, the mercenary protagonist Emerald “Deadeye” Flint. These credits can be used to purchase torpedoes, guns, shielding units and repair units for your ship. You can even buy new, improved ships.

- Visuals -
The game was published in 2001 and shows it, although it was praised for its cutting-edge look back when it was released. The water’s light refraction patterns are fascinating to watch on the sea floor. The HUD is rather confusing, with many unlabeled progress or health bars (I’m not sure even after playing the game). The enemies are rather stiff for living beings (those that are alive, anyway).

- Sound/Music -
Sound effect quality is better than contemporaries such as Half-Life, but the music is completely comprised of early 2000s electronic/industrial (probably not the exact genre, but gives you an idea). Deadeye Flint’s voice acting is normal; the rest, not so much. This game probably has the worst voice acting in any game I’ve ever experienced. From perpetually drunk/high-sounding actors to “women” who are obviously painfully high falsetto male voices, be thankful the dialogue is skippable.

- My Thoughts -
I really liked this game after I got used to thinking in three dimensions. Unlike flight simulators, this game has swim up and down buttons, which got a lot of use from me. I also really liked the game physics and attention to detail, like if you press back twice your engine shuts off. The missions were varied enough to provide a challenge and keep things interesting. Enemy variety wasn’t fabulous, but not boring either. There are no checkpoints in the missions, so each time you fail you have to play the whole thing over again. It’s a short game, less than eight hours for me – it will take longer if you up the difficulty.

- Conclusion -
Buy this game. It’s a short, good oldie from the turn of the millennium that’s only $5 regular price. If it goes on sale for $0.49, there’s no reason not to pick it up. Just don’t expect flawless voice acting. Despite how terrible they are, it’s actually quite funny at times. Light! (standard Aquarian greeting/goodbye)

Una sorpresa per quanto mi riguarda. Se dovessi riassumerlo mi verrebbe da dire un Fallout sott'acqua esclusivamente in modalità fps, senza free roam e menate varie, pure vecchiotto (2001) e con dei problemi di compatibilità (l'accelerometro dei mouse moderni rende l'esperienza ingiocabile) e con dei personaggi WTF buttati in una storia a volte spensierata e altre drammatica. Non dura così tanto, sono io che sono lento, ma comunque quella quindicina di ore la ruba e in generale lo stile particolare (specialmente per la soundtrack) me l'ha fatto rimanere impresso

Beautiful game, even though the graphics are getting dated.
Lots of fun. Terrible voice acting. Okay plot.

Plays mostly like a space shooter, under water.

World of Aqua. Full of pirate scum, bionts, crawles and squids. Good targets for mercenary Emerald "Dead Eye" Flint. Fights are fast and funny. Nice stylization in green color and obviously completely awesome looking undersea environment. Attempt for new conversation system did not fare best but it's still remarkable. One Tsunami Booster please. 79/100

A good way to describe this game, would be a Post-Apocalyptic-Underwater-Minisub-Shooter-Noire. The length of this description is appropriate given the ceaseless exposition and shoe-horning of story and game world terms into the script.

The game is not without charm though.

I would suggest it is a good reference for the would be game writer. The problem presented is that the player's interaction with the world is almost entirely made up of flying a combat mini-submarine and shooting at things. The experience itself tells little story without all the radio chatter and docking bay dialog around it.

As a result, many of the characters between missions will have highly convoluted political opinions or possess absurdly esoteric knowledge. Your point of view in the story is the role of Flint, who himself seems to have some very developed opinions. This makes it quite challenging to relate to the character effectively.

An attempt to make the game relatable seems to have been made in the form of a stylistic choice in the script. The game is strewn with metaphors and similes and delivered in a film-noire-esque monotone meter. Ultimately, the game asks too much of that stylistic choice to fix its over-riding problems.

It's a shame, since if you dig into the script, you can tell a lot of effort has been made to flesh the game world out, but it's just too esoteric. Players can handle detail, but they have to have been along for the ride that tangentially cobbles together that detail.

As for the game mechanics themselves - well your first problem on a modern system will be attempting to get the controls to work. If your optical mouse has a high polling rate which you cannot lower, you're going to have a bad time and I would suggest trying to use a pad.

There are some attempts at underwater physics in the form of currents and water resistance seems to effect the motion of the turret control (although, this could just be the modern peripheral issues). There is a ballistics system which is nice as you have to lead your target and you would expect water to have some effect on projectile velocity. The lack of speed boosting (at least up to the point I have played) is disappointing - speed as a limited resource makes for an exciting mechanic in this type of game.

On all fronts, Aquanox is a reference game that has a lot to teach the would be game-maker about the mis-use of talent. It is rough around the edges and perhaps ruined somewhat by modern computer equipment. But if you pick it up for cheap or in a bundle, I think it's worth a look.

My highlight of the game, has to be the drum & bass music with a 1950s bbc radio announcer accent layered over the top.
