Summary: Hydrophobia is a really interesting game… For a game that’s based, for the majority of its run, in and around water you would expect it to be a little dull and repetitive; however the water looks phenomenal!
Summary: Mind blowing gameplay. This is a fantastic game and you should get it now. You're in for a lot of "whoa!" moments! There are plenty cool mechanics in the first half an hour and I strongly believe it's impossible to play Hydrophobia and not be pleasantly surprised.
Summary: Not one of the better action games I have played recently. It may have been my computer, but the graphics were fuzzy to the point that I couldn't see the written directions. It was hard to switch between weapons, and the weapons were meager at best.
Summary: Nope. This game has myriad premise and fails to deliver in every single field. Water physics do nothing but get in the way. Objectives are simple find-the-button busywork. Platforming is shallow. Protagonist controls poorly. Combat is awful cover shooting against pathetic AI.
Summary: I thought Hydrophobia was going to be real cool, anybody would fall for being able to manipulate water right? Well it turns out to be quite disappointing. First, you only get to use your water ability at the very end.
Summary: When I first saw this game, I saw a woman manipulating water, and it looked like fun. That's a cool concept right? Especially with Havok-powered physics? Well, after the first act, it seemed to be the case that I wasn't actually getting any cool water powers at all.
Summary: Hydrophobia is a strange case. I would want to like this game, but all the technical problems in the game just make me not to. This game is more like a short tech demo about the cool water effects the developers has been able to create. Only problem is that the game engine is half-done and broken.
Summary: Despite the criticism I have seen, it's not a bad little game, especially for the price. It's nothing too special... pretty linear, some platforming and cover-based shooting elements, and very pretty fire and water effects.
