THE LADDER JEFF THE F'ING LADDER!!! NEXT TO THE GUY BEHIND THE GLASS!!!

Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a donkey!
... I don't know. I'm sorry.
 
Oh, geez, come on guys, there's a ladder right there... Congratulations, your excellent pathfinding got you into a secret room that even I would never have found even if I wanted to. The ladder was right there! In the little cutscene even! Oh well...

Yeah the demo for this game sucked. Only thing it has going for it is the water, which was very impressive. Now if only it was like that in all games, and not just a gimmick in a mediocre game...

I just saved some dollars by watching this. Thanks Giant Bomb!

I really wish these QL's wouldn't cover parts featured in the demo :/. I know. Such a bitchy complaint to make, but if you're gonna purchase the entire game to QL, might as well be for an exceptional part? idk. 
 
Also, looked like someone played some BioShock/2 :). Hydroshock indeed.

What the hell? I'm dead. :(

Great, now I have a phobia of Hydrophobia. The climbing animations of the first Tomb Raider looked more natural.

Hacking!

Posted by Olivaw

To be completely fair to this mediocre looking game, you guys did not pay very good attention to the things that characters told you to do. 
 
But that's nothing new!

Posted by Reizarvg

What the hell is wrong with people? Why do they feel the need to fuck with the basic conventions for control layouts? Jump is Y. Why the fuck would you do that when every other game ever uses A? Idiots.

Pulling Brads like a pro, Jeff! :P

Jesus, who recorded the actors and thought "Yep, this is fine"? Also, this game suffers from Swery flash light syndrome. Also, this game is bad.

Posted by BrainMeats

You guys are going to get such an angry phone call now.

Posted by Dustpan

I'm thirsty, time to play Hydrophobia.

Posted by Kermity

This actually looks like a game I would enjoy....except for the abuse of the Wilhelm scream.  Such a major turn off for me.
Posted by wonderhare

Dear God this was awful.

Posted by Mowgers

The accents are so atrocious...

Posted by BRINKTheMovieMyFavoriteMovie

Having played through all of Hydrophobia myself, I think this QL is going to be hiiiiiiiiiii-larious

Cool water effects but the gameplay seems lacking.

Posted by ShadowVirus

Deadly Premonition style flash light!

Posted by kelbear

Watching GB try to figure out how to play games makes me squirm. I just want to yell at the screen to tell them about the obvious things they're missing.

I think the problem is the ladder was in the cut scene and was the first thing you saw when you come back from the cut scene. No way the game could be that easy.
 
This game reminds me of computer games from a decade ago when the high end computers were getting good enough to have good water and lighting effects but the game designers didn't bother to make the actual game good.

come on jeff, there was a ladder right there!

Lol at them not seeing the ladder next to the trapped guy.

This stuff posts automatically at a certain time.  I believe it is 8am CST but havent had to check in awhile/.  After a couple endurance runs you figure it out.

That first phone called sounded like 

Posted by adoggz

i like how the game explicitly shows Jeff the ladder he needs to climb and he goes everywhere but the ladder.

Yeah, but Vinny was online!
Posted by Nentisys

Atrocious voice acting. Water looks cool though...

Posted by dtaken

I think we have a new contender for an endurance run. Wonky controls, cheesy accents, magical flashlight, awkward combat (based on what I've seen from other videos) and the mystery of the A button.

Edited by Napalm

Kate Wilson doesn't know where she was born, or where her parents were born. Therefore, she goes for the Aussie-British American accent.
 
Just a few positive notes... this game has awesome cover art, really, really cool set design and interesting music.

Posted by Ratinho

Spent a good hour trying to play this demo the other day before eventually deciding to play good games instead. I have never looked back.

Posted by Connelo

The voice acting is so bad. Where is she trying to be from? And the Scottish guy is not Scottish , just awful.

Posted by Jeffk38uk

Apart from the water effects, everything else doesnt grab me. I like the concept of a city ship tho, but man those accents.

Posted by JohnDudebro

THAT IS A FANTASTIC RHYME 
 
PROMOTE THE MAN WHO WROTE IT THIS SECOND

Haha. The ladder was right there.
