Dead in the Water
ist sicher kein Überspiel, aber ein sehr spaßiger (weil erfrischend anderer) Zeitvertreib für Action-Fans mit Faible für Marine oder nasse Schlachten. Und das auch, obwohl es technisch nicht perfekt ist.
Overall, Dead in the Water is a good vehicular combat game. It doesn't quite rank up there with Twisted Metal 2 or Vigilante 8 on the combat side, mostly because of the sluggish turning that comes naturally with boats. But when you factor in the race mode, Dead in the Water has more longevity than either game, and it's solid in just about all aspects. Fans of vehicular combat games should definitely give Dead in the Water a try.
One thing's for sure – the PlayStation isn't being skimped in the racing genre. So it'll take a very special game to grab your attention, since there's so many of them out there. Player One tried – you can tell that this wasn't intended as a B-grade title, with the game engine and stylized front-end graphics. It's just that, with all the elements put into place, the game just doesn't click as a "great" game. It's only "averagely good," at best.
Das größte Problem
von Dead in the Water ist
ohne Frage die höllische
Geschwindigkeit. Zum einen weil sie die CPU oftmals in die Knie zwingt und dies zu groben Berechnungsfehlern führt, zum anderen weit die Boote mit einem irren Tempo an euch vorbeizischen, während ihr mit der schwammigen Steuerung zu kämpfen habt. Deshalb gibt es in diesen Bereichen einen fetten Punktabzug, denn dadurch wird das Spiel fast unspielbar.
Unresponsive controls and poor track design make navigation difficult to say the least. The weapons don't do nearly enough damage, so the battles just go on forever. That sissy machine gun isn't even worth messing with, and neither is this game. Despite a boatload of options and features, Dead In The Water is a disaster of titanic proportions.
