Aquanox: Deep Descent

Aquanox Deep Descent is a first person underwater vehicle shooter, in which players control a variety of customizable ships to engage in fierce battles in the dystopian deep sea world of Aqua. In the near future the Earth's surface has become uninhabitable. What remains of humankind lives in former mining and research stations, deep below the surface of the sea. Born and raised in the only world we know, the loose network of underwater settlements, torn by the war for resources and dominance between various factions. Take control of a team of highly trained fighter pilots and experience an epic story in the dark world of Aquanox. Send your enemies down to Davy Jones' Locker with well-aimed torpedoes, shrapnel blasts, mines and more in a journey that takes you across the world's oceans and into the deepest trenches of our Earth.

My game first game, first mission was literally bugged. Spoiler alert, I guess. But seriously, first time playing, wake up, follow ishmael, get to one of the little green light gates. Ish stays there. Gate stays closed. Ish swims around in circles. nothing happens. Wait for a little bit, like wtf. Finally reload autosave, get to gate, it opens right up and some rock falling event is triggered. That's the fastest I've ever seen a "you shall not pass" style bug show up in a game ever. Well done Digital Arrow! 10/10.

It's OK...
I really like the Aquanox series and for me it was enough to blast through basic enemies with a variety of weapons. The story is halfwhat decent and the voice acting is solid. The environments are nice to look at! Although all of them are a bit too evenly lit. I hardly had to use my headlights at all which I would have liked.
The different Vessels look cool and are customizable. That's nice! All in all I would say "it's not quite there yet" especially when compared to the atmospheric density of the originals. But that could just be my nostalgia talking.
I would only recommend this to diehard Aquanox and/or Achemedian Dynasty Fans.

I don't think the Steam user rating does the game justice, as it's not a bad game and has the core mechanics of the previous Aquanox parts, while bringing the visuals to a new level. It's also correct that visually it's not triple A, and the amount of "epxloration" you can do in the mission is limited, but that was kind of to be expected.
What is sad however is that the game missed many opportunities to polish the details to make it "feel" more like an Aquanox. For example, the dialogue is much to clean and often not immersive, the side missions are loose-ended, the main four characters not very much explored, the ending sequence is wrapping up things too quickly etc. Stations should have been made more unique (station visuals, sounds, maybe names for the bar as in previous titles), and more lore could have been added. I preferred the geographically motivated names of the original much over the ones chosen here ("CU Main Station?! seriously...)
I didn't quite like the way of the connection to the original series, but I can somehow understand the reasons for doing so. Still, some Aquanox is better than none ;-)

Review from Steam

As a relative old timer (having played and enjoyed a lot Aquanox 1 & 2) I was really surprised when I saw Aquanox Deep Descent appearing on my radar.
The story itself is quite good and I enjoyed it, graphics are more than decent.
Small improvements would have been needed, like generally all the docking experience which has not received that much love.
Overall a good money spend, but especially if you played the first Aquanox games.

This game is great fun. i remember playing the first two Aquanox games and really enjoyed them. this is like that warm felling of a game you know but completely rehauled for modern gamers.
