Hydrophobia Walkthrough

The world of Hydrophobia is fraught with peril, and we’re here to help you survive it. Taking control of systems engineer Kate Wilson, players will attempt to navigate the massive Queen of the World, a luxury ocean liner the size of a small city. When the ship is sabotaged by terrorists, water pours in from all sides, making escape all but impossible.

Designer Dark Energy Digital is justifiably proud of their game engine, which showcases water-rendering technology that goes above and beyond anything heretofore offered in gaming. Depending on how you manipulate your environment, the torrents of H2O will be either your all or your enemy.

Survival horror games (like Hydrophobia) are notoriously tricky and unforgiving, so there’s no shame in consulting a walkthrough for those particularly frustrating passages of play. Check back on release day for a comprehensive, step-by-step walkthrough.

I think the game is glitching out on me. It will not let me open the A door for the Access Maintenance Corridors part. Very annoying.

This game was very good it ended on a cliff hanger so i hope there is going to be a sequel

I bought the game yesterday and I just finished it . . . :(
Anyway, this game is very awesome and there is so much action than I thought, the graphics are amazing and I don’t understand why gamers didn’t gave a good grade.

I highly recommend this game to anybody !

I accidentally restarted the game on Easy level, and lost my checkpoint near the end of Act 3. Is there a way to get back to my original checkpoint, or do i have to do Act 3 all over again?

why does my PS3 version take out the saving scoot part and why does it end when she uses the antivirus?

Quite possibly one of the worst games i have played. Good ideas, and the water effects are well done, but the controls, voice acting, story etc all amount to a really poor game. And to top it all off, someone has submitted what could well be the worst walkthrough guide to a game ever too. Not sure if this changed between x-box, PC and PSN versions, but parts of this walkthrough have absolutely no relation to the game im currently playing.
