As far as games go, it was so-so. It was one of those where you are only the gunner, basically, the game plays through a movie and you shoot at the baddies. It was a great story though. An aquadic alien race traversing the galaxy in search of a planet with water finds earth with its 75% Oceans and takes up residence. While no immediate impact is seen, the oceans start to rise as the aliens are manufacturing water with a plan to engulf the entire planet. To combat the invaders and their superior underwater craft, the Earth Ocean Alliance turns to the experimental Hydra, a hightech sub fighter. There are some pretty intense moment. It is a good once through play.
