  1. If you want an undersea simulation or oceanic real-time strategy, then forget it; but if what you desire is arcade action in a novel and challenging context, then it fits the bill.
  2. An entirely enjoyable experience. It's not ultra-weighty gaming, and that's a good thing. It's easy to get into, easy to control, and easy to enjoy.

    If you closed your eyes and managed to drown out the superfluous and oft aggravating German techno you wouldn't for a second know that the game took place underwater. It features none of the ambience, deep bass, and whooshing water associated with the setting.
  4. A bit of a bimbo, pretty but mindless.
  5. It should by no means be considered to be a submarine simulation, but rather a simple arcade shoot-em-up, used only for time wasting when you have nothing the least bit intelligent to play.
  6. Sadly, in addition to the crap voice acting, the game’s phat/phunky Euro-trash techno beats will have you either tapping your toes or (like me) turning off the music altogether. [Feb 2002, p.80]

    The graphics and sound are incredible, and it's obvious that this game has a lot of potential, if only the developers would utilize that potential.

    The very first game of my very first pc. Even though back then i played several video games on that time, i absolutely stunned by the setting, visuals and gameplay. After all these years, considering that i am now writing this review in 2013, i still can't forget how unique and amazing game it was. Bioshock 1 was the spiritual successor to Aqua for me and the two is in my all time top 5 ever! Expand

    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 Expand

    Not bad, I dug the story and the visuals were good for their time but there is a pretty big catch for me.
    This is a sequel to a game called
    Archimedean Dynasty, and it was in every way but graphics a far superior game. I suggest playing that one first, you'll understand. Expand

    One of those old looking PC games with the traditional bad voice acting so beware. Its a fun enough action shooter and even though its about underwater combat you be happily zipping around like a Star Wars Tie fighter. Is it still fun enough to game on today, yeah I suppose and it is a game that is fairly cheap both on retail and digital platforms. Expand
