Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis

What?s this? TDK is at it again with a license deal no one saw coming for an arguably dated franchise. Forget Spiderman, forget Batman, and forget any other logical choice for a comic book character, because Aquaman is set to rock the house -- a.k.a your GameCube -- whether you?re ready or not!

impressions

Like Dinotopia, Aquaman will retail for a slashed price of twenty dollars. An affordable choice, to say the least, Aquaman appears to be a pretty straightforward action title. It does appear to have some unique qualities though, because Aquaman's adventure takes place in the depths of the deep blue sea (surprise, surprise). I enjoyed the swift underwater swimming in Majora?s Mask very much, and TDK should be able to create a similar experience in Aquaman, whose main character (Aquaman!) may be able to wield a rather nifty triton throughout the game and morph his limbs into actual weapons.

word on the street

Dubbed an "action/adventure" title, Aquaman is actually more along the lines of a brawler in the spirit of Final Fight or X-Men: Reign of Apocalypse. You?ll be fighting your way across a slew of Aquaman?s arch enemies and their army of underlings, as opposed to solving your way through puzzles in a true, narrative heavy adventure game.

press release notes

Aquaman, the dynamic DC Comics super hero, stars in a spectacular underwater action / adventure brawler as he defends the deep-sea city of Atlantis against his most infamous arch-enemies Ocean Master, Black Manta and the Lava Lord of the Fire Trolls.

Aquaman fans, here's your chance to wield Aquaman's legendary super powers and cybernetic morphing hook/hand against these seemingly invincible villains and their armies. Have at it!

overall

While admittedly shallow, Aquaman is shaping up to be a briefly entertaining diversion for those who?d like to have some mindless fun for an affordable price. Also, the comic license isn?t half bad an addition. Look for Aquaman on the July 18th, and a review of our own shortly thereafter.
