About This Game

AQUANOX 2: REVELATION is a new story of the underwater world Aqua. In 2666 a young freighter pilot called William Drake sets out to search for the heritage of a mythical ancestor. He is looking for adventure - and finds greed, ruthlessness, merciless hatred … and also unexpected help. But very soon he has to realize that he is not the only one hunting for his ancestor's legendary treasure.

AQUANOX 2: REVELATION chases the player through high-energy action and sinister underwater cities. A gripping story, striking characters and the overwhelming architecture of the underwater world are framed by an ingenious user interface. Bonus objectives as well as hidden bonus weaponry guarantee each missions' replayability. Tactics and patience complement the fast-paced dogfights. The player becomes a member of a group of eight mercenaries crossing the oceans. The crew is crammed together in the claustrophobic atmosphere of a freighter: Always on the lookout for loot and the legendary treasure… and always afraid they themselves might become the victims of their unknown enemies.

This game is very underrated. The story, characters and dialogues are clearly adult-themed and dark. Like Aquanox 1 it shows well the madness of a post apocalyptic underwater society.

I played it a huge amount of time back in the day when it came out and now finally got it on steam.
The setting is dark, unique and twisted, the visuals aged quite well and the gameplay still is great.
Up to 4 Ships are fully customizable and differ your approach and outcome of each mission individually.
The missions vary from escorts over large-scale pirate-battles to stealthmissions, there also are some bonus-goals and free-roam after most missions.

if you like non(or less) generic shooters this might be for you

this is a nice game for its time. not something i can take the time to compleat but would make a nice time spender. now if ony there was a way to make it into windowed mode. then it would be worth my time. but if your into underwater activitys well i guess this is it for you.

i give this game a 6/10 has some nice controls mecanics are not hard to run. aiming can be a slight bit sloppy though.

Итак перед нами продолжение симулятора подводного истребителя AquaNox. В общем игра неплоха - но к сожалению она не дотягивает до уровня 2 части потому что:
1) Управляемость и маневренность лодок значительно ухудшилась
2) Броня ЗНАЧИТЕЛЬНО ухудшена - иногда миссия выигрывается чудом
3) Океан стал слишком мутным - понятно что вода имеет разные оттенки на разных глубинах - но это разработчики упустили
4) САМОЕ УЖАСТНОЕ - количество лодок - в 1 части мы видели более 10 разновидностей со своими нюансами, здесь лодок всего 4 - получаются все строго по сюжету и ничем они не отличаются кроме скорости и времени смерти (+ 0.9 сек под мощным огнём)
5) слишком много скрытых объектов в миссиях и плохая балансировка - иногда проигрываешь только потому что пропустил кого-то мелкого а тот расковырял защищаемый объект
6) слишком мало торпед с собой и плохая наводимость некоторых спец-пушек ("Гидра")
7) Мало боссов и они не к месту - не ждите эпической драки в конце эпизода
8) некоторые типы пушек крайне бесполезны для игрока но почему-то для АI они самое оно - выгребаете вы просто жутко больно
В общем если вам понравился AquaNox берите и эту часть. Игра довольно долгая - но диалоги теперь имеют титровку так что читать удобно. Лодка теперь поменялась - у нас теперь есть броня разного борта как в Privateer так что если вам почти пробили лоб - готовтесь отступать (если есть хороший рем.бот) или переигрывать миссию (если это начало). Значительно улучшили города - теперь диалоги более живые - так видно обстановку где Вильям Дрейк разговаривает.
Но боевая модель значительно пострадала - теперь бои крайне сложны из-за плохой управляемости и малой прочности + некоторые пушки по эффекту хороши - но практике косят так что смешно. Так что перед заданием Обязательно сохранитесь.

Вердикт - игра хороша но многое из хорошего 1 части было вырезано и миссии так и не поправили.

So we have continue of AquaNox's underwater sub-fighter simulator. In general - good, but it isn't so good as AquaNox 2 must be, because:
1) Maneuvering and controls of subs become very bad
2) Armor significantly REDUCED - sometimes win in mission are miracle itself
3) Ocean became very foggy - i understand that water isn't same colour in different depths - but devs ignored that
4) BADDEST THING - number of subs - in AquaNox we have more then 10 different types (and they aren't similar) - here only 4 strictly by storyline and only difference is speed of movement and death (max armored + 0.9 sec under heavy fire)
5) too many hidden objects in missions and balance of missions is bad - sometimes loose because you didn't noticed some small enemy in hard fight and it destroyed clue object
6) very few torpedos in sub and bad locking of some special guns
7) Few bosses and they aren't in good story points - so don't expect of boss at the end of episode
8) some guns are pretty useless for player - but EXTREMELY good for AI - it drops rain of fire to you nad it's really dangerous
In general if you liked AquaNox better to take AquaNox 2. The game is long - but dialogs now have subtitles so now it is easy and good to read them. Sub has been changed now we have 4 sided armor like in Privateer - so if enemy almost penetrate your front armor plating get ready to retreat (if you have good repair module) or restart mission (the beggining). Cities were updated very good - dialogues now more meeting like - cause now you see atmosphere when William Drake is talking. But combat model become awful because to control sub now is very hard and it has very low survivalibility + some guns have very good effects but they are missing to hit targets oftenly (very annoying). So before mission - SAVE.

Verdict - game is good but too much good from AquaNox were cutted and misions weren't fixed properly.

Truly an improvement over its predecessor, Aquanox 2 progresses faster, the graphics look good and introduce more colorful environments, and the dialogue is much improved. If it's ever on sale, you should pick it up. Check out my full review here:

Same graphics, same guns, same submarines. But in this sequel is everything even bigger. Sadly it's doing this game boring. Story is so predictable and so unnecessarily long. Full of strange characters with one main who successfully supplementing all stupid conversations. At least there are still some good fights. 61/100

Great game! Great story, never boring! Worth 5 euros! I'm hoping for Aquanox 3 to be announced this E3 (since there already is one screenshot of the game released by nordic games)

EDIT 04.10.2014 - Correction Aquanox Deep Descent confirmed to be released late 2015. It is supposed to be reboot of the series. Gameplay can be found on youtube (guy talks in german). After watching the video I can say it's going to be more of an Archimedean Dynasty reboot.

One of my favorite games. Epic story, memorable characters and atmospheric music. Much better than the first part. The unique game about submarines. The more I go through it - the shorter it seems to me. I hope sooner or later it will have a sequel. Or will something similar.

when it came out back on 2003 I loved it. 11 years later just buyed it now on steam and its still such an amazing game. The graphics on FullHD now are obv not the best anymore but considered that this game is 11 years old it still looks quite good. Especially the water. Totally worth playing it nowadays.

Sweet sequel to AquaNox and Archymedian Dynasty. Abuses video cards for breakfast, poor voiceover countered by sweet everything.
