4Gamers heeft een review met screenshots van Hostile Waters van Rage Software, en ze zijn behoorlijk enthousiast:
So to finish things off we can expect to see a game with more depth than the pacific ocean and more fun than dancing naked in a Chinese restaurant. Some of the stunning graphical effects your likely to witness are, volumetric fogging, bump mapping, EAX and A3D Sound support, real shadows that cast onto objects properly, day and night cycles and of course weather effects (Rain, Snow and sun etc.). This being Rage you can expect a game as graphically stunning as can exist for this time period with full support for all old and modern as well as future 3D Cards and sound cards. Rage have really pulled out all the stops for this one and it's basically a sum up of all they have done so far but with knobs, more knobs and a pile of whistles that is going to make your ears explode into fits of perpetual amazement. Get ready for Autumn when jaws will be dropping like apes trying to fly.
