To celebrate the fact that XBLA watery adventure, Hydrophobia is the Deal of the Week selling at a reduced price of 400 MS Points, Microsoft are entering anyone who buys the game into a sweepstakes to win a water themed vacation for two. Not bad huh? Five runners up will receive 4000 MS Points each as a consolation prize which is a pretty damn good consolation! But what about the game you’re buying? Hydrophobia has varied reviews but its dynamic water system and effects have received much praise among critics and because of the ever changing environment, each confrontation is unique.
The official press release states: “Hydrophobia is a third person survival adventure set in a floating city, where terrorists take control and heroine Kate has to overcome her haunting childhood memories and fight back using all her skills and expertise as a systems engineer. Hydrophobia offers fast-paced action and breathtaking visuals; engage in mind blowing “flow combat” where emergent gameplay results in a never-the-same-experience. Unleash floating oil fires, electricity and the power of the water itself to wipe out your enemy as you discover the terrifying truth of the Malthusian agenda; Save the World, Kill Yourself.”
Sound like your kind of thing? If so now’s the best time to buy it!
