AquaNox 2: Revelation - PC - Preview
E3 2003 - First Look
AquaNox 2: Revelation follows William Drake, a young man whose mother was murdered and his family has disappeared. He embarks on a quest to find his family and uncover the mystery of their disappearance and his mother’s death. Oh yeah, and all of this happens underwater. Got that? You pilot around in a little submarine armed with some missiles and plasma guns and move with 360 degrees of freedom, a lot like Descent (if anyone remembers that game).
The original AquaNox was notable primarily for its great graphics, and Revelation is no different. The game has some excellent graphics with remarkable attention to detail. For example, sunshine reflected upon the surface of the water and looked really cool from underneath, and homing missiles would go wide and then zigzag into their target instead of just heading straight to your enemy.
AquaNox 2: Revelation looks to address its predecessor’s shortcomings with an engaging storyline, great action and excellent graphics. It releases this fall.
