Hydrophobia is Dark Energy Digital’s newest shooter and it comes with everything. This game is adventure, arcade, puzzler, all in one. It’s actually hard to define this game. Perhaps more is better, but that can result in something so confusing, you won’t really know what you’re doing and the game can become chaotic at best. 

The gameplay is somewhat different to what you may be used to. There are so many puzzles to unravel, so many adventures to complete, and so many battles to fight, you will find that with so many choices you can get lost in the spin. It’s so easy to lose ones direction when a game is too big and ill defined. 

You play as Kate Wilson, a tough girl scout who kicks ass all the way. She is fast and furious with her gun and kills so many badass guys she makes the terminator look like a pussycat. Fortunately, the gun only shoots water and not much damage is done, except of course when your victim falls onto an electric fence.

The combat might be exciting and you will definitely love doing that. Unfortunately, the camera angle will always be at a point where you can’t see what you are doing. It seems the developers deliberately angled the game camera so that you are disadvantaged and your enemies can pick you off like a sitting duck. For most of the game, you’ll be blinded and hoping for hitting your targets rather than using some skill of the controls. Similar games in the genre have marvelous camera angles and magnificent views to ensure your gaming experience is entertaining and fulfilling. But alas, Hydrophobia has none of these.

You’ll wonder what the graphics is trying to portray. Everything is simple like in the days of playstation 2s. The storyline is mostly political extremists who paint their ideas on rock walls like in the days of Noah. The narrator is Irish with an accent you will hate. The whole concept of playing a shooting game under a city immersed by water may sound ludicrous, and indeed it is. 

Perhaps the game was designed for toddlers, but then you wouldn’t want your siblings that young to get corrupted by learning how to kill. There is plenty of killing and mayhem, and you can do all sorts of actions playing the role of Kate Wilson. You can jump, crawl, hide, kneel and so forth. The controls are a bit sticky. It will remind you of your playstation 1.

This game was designed for the Xbox 360 and there are plenty of games that are so remarkable for that platform, you will wonder why you bought this one. Of course, the game can be downloaded, if you don’t find it in the bargain bin at gamecenter.  

Dark Energy Digital has released plenty of games that were remarkably good and every gamer knows they have a fairly solid reputation. But the release of this game makes one wonder what they were thinking when they released it. The game’s vast array of weapons, adventure levels and other antics are unlikely to make it a gem and will soon be forgotten and buried under that pile of junk games.
