  • Remapped controls feel much more natural; hydrokinetic powers in the third act add some much needed variety; boss encounter ends the game better than a cliffhanger
  • Water physics are highly impressive, Big improvements in the controls and presentation

Editors Didn't Like

  • Hydrophobia's structure remains as boring as before; firefights lack variety; short length prevents hydrokinectic powers from being fully utilized; better produced story is still uninteresting; minor performance issues
  • Combat can be frustrating, Story is cliched and ends poorly
