Undertow is unveiled with this quite nice looking video. If you don't know Undertow (and I sure didn't) it's an underwater action game for XBLA, using the Unreal Engine 3. It explains the excellent graphics and water effects.

In the cutscene at the beginning, you can see people in the background riding hammerhead sharks. They're visible in the 3rd and 4th captures above.

That'll be awesome if the shark riders are a playable class. But I'm sure they'll at least appear as enemies or allies in the campaign. =)

pretty sure at around 20 seconds the mai ncharacter is one of those shark rider people, a second later it look like he is riding a lobster or something too.

It's nice to see something brand new on XBLA for a change.

Yeah, I hope the classics get lost and flash games should be banished forever. Original games with new concepts and good graphics are the way to go.

Looks great,

but XBLA isn't my cup of tea

I'm sure fans of XBLA games will find this interesting

I dont agree with the "Sharks or fail" thing though the inclusion of sharks is cool. The way I see it graphics, sound and gameplay/feel... makes an underwater game... As for Undertow: Keewl! Underwater action I like! Ever since I jumped into water in Duke Nukem 3d I've been facinated with aquatics in games. Also I am a fan of Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea so Undertow falls right into my alley!

although the video cut very quickly you can see the player riding a shark through some parts of it, so shark riding is there. also the graphics and action look really nice.
