Review by Tom Allen
2½ Stars out of 4

Deep Fighter is Colony Wars underwater with a dash of Wing Commander's live-action actors debriefing you between missions.

This two-disc saga features 36 highly varied missions in six (6) aquatic environments. Examples of missions include collecting volcanic material and navigating a minefield.

I like the Turok-style controls, with the four right-hand buttons used for forward, back, left, and right movement.

As with any game of this type, it's hard to get a feel for the space of your vehicle, but you should adjust with time.

My complaints lie mostly with the game's visuals. The graphics are not detailed. The transition from underwater to above water is amateurish. Textures and animation could have been improved. This game is an embarrassment when compared with Ecco the Dolphin.

I also could not stand the actors. The commander's British-ish prickliness is not convincing, and his method of changing subjects naturally, or engaging the gamer with a straight-on look, is about as transparent as slate. (The best part of writing this review must be the invention of the word 'British-ish.')

Still, despite the faults, the game play is fairly interesting for fans of the genre. This game won't convert any Colony Wars haters, but it doesn't need to.
