The Last War Will Be Fought Beneath the Waves

The undersea world of the 27th century is a dangerous, unfriendly place where mercenaries like `Emerald' Dead Eye Flint ply their deadly trade among the warring forces of man and nature. You'll assume Flint's persona taking command of a loosely aligned force of fellow mercenaries hiring themselves out to the powerful leaders of this inhospitable world. You'll battle other mercenaries, military forces and hideous sea monsters. You'll develop alliances and you will be betrayed.

Reviews:

IGN PC by Ivan Sulic

"Few know Aquanox is actually a sequel to 1997's lesser known, unceremoniously dubbed "WingCommander clone" submersible actioner by the name of Archimidean Dynasty. Never heard of it? It was more commonly known as "Schleichfahrt" in its homeland of Deutschland (now you know why it was lesser known). That game's story, as well as its child for which you are here to read about, follow the lives of humankind as they exist beneath the dead matter encased seas of a post apocalyptic, surface ravaged Earth.

"Taking on the roll of mercenary extraordinaire Emerald Flint, Archimidean Dynasty thrust players headlong into a struggle to save the planet from a mysterious aggressor known only as the Bionts. A race of mysterious robots with rudimentary neural brains controlled by a hive like structure, the Bionts are kind of like toasters, only smart, submersible, heavily armed, and mean -- so then, more like them fangled new microwaves.

"Aquanox takes this story, and like all good sequels, expands upon it. The Bionts are all but gone, and once again you find yourself in the sopping wet boots of Emerald Flint watching as a new, more ominous threat awakes due to seismic disturbances caused by an orbiting satellite -- not exactly your first choice for a good morning."
