  • Summary: Here's your chance to wield the power of Aquaman, the DC Comics superhero, as he defends the deep-sea city of Atlantis against such enemies as Ocean Master, Black Manta, and the Lava Lord of the Fire Trolls. You must fight to save the lost city by using Aquaman's super powers, telepathy, and hook-hand. While the game features plenty of intense underwater battles, you can also bombard your enemies from an attack sub in first-person mode. Expand

  1. The setting for a really interesting adventure is present and the hero has a really nifty aquatic gift, but the end result is disastrous thanks to poor execution and a weak story with no real payoff.
  2. It totally lacks imagination or polish. Toss this one back. [Nov 2003, p.102]
  3. There’s just no way to make Aquaman more exciting than beached jellyfish. It’s time to let the scaly superhero sleep with the fishes already.
  4. Aquaman is to underwater action what the man of steel is to airborne antics - crappy - and on Xbox nonetheless. [Oct 2003, p.73]
  5. Even the most hard-core Aquaman devotees will likely find little use for this short, shallow, problematic ramshackle game.
  6. A pathetic example of rushed development, and no one should be forced to witness the results. Sadly enough, Aquaman’s first shot at videogame stardom would have been more appropriate on another console five years ago.
  7. The graphics blow, the control is as responsive as Anna Nicole Smith's husband, the animation is an insult to those 60's Hulk cartoons with the retarded theme song.
