About the Game

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.

Great game. I still play it from time to time :) Note: Aquanox 1 works great with old-school ball mouse. Optic & Laser mouses tend to lag while in fights.

Just plain fun with a good sense of humor. Controls take a bit getting used to however the options menu does make things easier. (The bad part is that you can't change some options during gameplay)

One of those laid back games that has a blade runner feel but underwater. Yet it manages to work well atmosphere wise. Then again don't expect a great piece of story.

Anyone who enjoys oldschool space based fighter / shooters should find themselves right at home.

AquaNox is one of the best games I've played. Not a very strong story, ♥♥♥♥ty graphics for 2014, I'll give you that. But the amount of customization for the time it was released, the amount of different enemies and the freedom you had was really new for its time.

It's a masterpiece, just like Myst, just like Jak and Daxter, even if this game, AquaNox, is not so widely known. The mechanics work wonders.

Only a side note: If you have a high DPI mouse, be sure to set it on lower values, or try to get a patch for it, otherwise the game will go crazy with your mouse speed.

Great game: 7.5/10. Would buy it again (and so did I, I bought it the first time long before Steam was even a dream...)
Worth: 10 dollars.

Remember the game since childhood and really enjoyed it. I just love this dark, futuristic beneath the ocean setting. Great storyline, great gameplay. I would like to see another Archimedean Dynasty/Aquanox title these days ...
