Well, this is the first time I’ve played a broken game this year, with that game being Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising.

The game launches and plays just fine, up until I get into the actual gameplay. Once in control, the fps stutters and makes the game unplayable for me, hovering around 2-5fps, sometimes shooting up to 15. It also constantly freezes whenever I move the cursor. I tried downgrading my graphics drivers (I use beta drivers), but that didn’t solve anything. I even updated my BIOS, as that had solved an fps issue in MW3 back in the day. I see that others are able to play, but I’m just not able to and cannot pinpoint the cause.

The game’s concept is nice, although the graphics are dated, but its a port of an old game, so that should be expected. This also applies to the animation and character models, which are actually quite amusing.
