Just Adventure
There seems to be interest in the gaming community about trying to make crossover games--games that will appeal to the different genre players. The Abyss is one such effort. The Abyss is trying to appeal to the shooter crowd as well as to the adventurers. (The promotional material mentions an aim at the role-players, but the role-playing element is so insignificant as to be nonexistent.) The challenge to make a crossover game is very difficult, but I think Sound Source has a solid contender here.

Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Those who love undersea adventure and remember the movie with great fondness (like me) will find that this game is a pale imitation not just in its technological backwardness but equally in its absence of riveting excitement, mystery, and suspense.

Game Over Online
Do not get this game. I repeat DO NOT GET THIS GAME. It is total junk. If you want to see something like this, spend the four bucks and go rent the movie and pretend that it's interactive. You'll get more for your money.
