Deadly Tide: The Height of Battle, The Depth of Fear
Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios
Developer: Rainbow Studios
Release Date: Oct 31, 1996
It's been five years since the aliens broke through Earth's defenses and set up their ocean bases. Now you are the last remaining fighter left to save Earth from this alien invasion. Deadly Tide thrusts you in the role of one of Earth's elite hydrofighter pilots. As the aliens are aquatic beings, all of the action takes place in the briny depths of the world seas. You must blast your way through wave after wave of baddies if humankind is to see the dawning of another day. Wow, sounds important, eh?
Deadly Tide is a rail shooter, which means you follow a predetermined path through hordes of alien ships, shooting everything in sight. Since you cannot control where your Hydra sub travels, you basically assume the position of a gunner, with the joystick controlling the cross-hairs. This limits gameplay in a big way, and you often feel detached from the real action, as if you were just playing a gun strapped to the bottom of a submarine. The basic premise is as follows: Arrive at an alien infested area, blast as many of the little buggers as you can, and get the hell out of Dodge. Image:CloneCD IMG/CCD/SUB
