Geometry wars meets Battlefield on a flooded earth is the best way to describe Undertow. IGN recently had the chance to get their hands on this underwater shooter from Chair Entertainment and found their expectations met: This game is fun.
The premise is simple and one most gamers will instantly recognize. The game takes place on a 2D playing field that houses several bases which act as spawning points. Each team is tasked with wiping out all of the reserves on the other team or taking control of every base thereby making it impossible for opponents to respawn after they die. Bases are captured by floating within a close proximity until they are converted, provided an enemy unit isn't also close by to block your progress.
