A delightful and mellow game that has you wander and swim at your leisure, but it probably won't appeal to everyone. The fish are vibrant and full of color, and lots of fascinating info about them is hidden away for you to earn, but the transitions are roughly drawn (low graphic rate) and pretty boring. This game is great as long as you are dealing with the ocean, but not so great when above water; the parts it does well are done extremely well, the parts that are poor are miserable. Fortunately the game is mostly underwater and plays to its strengths. All in all, a game unlike just about any other you'll play (which is to its credit) and there are many simple pleasures to be unwrapped in its play. Recommended to those who seek something different or are tired of the over-competitive game experience.
best sea-life game ever!!!!!!
This game is very good for people who like nature and sea life. I don't play often cause it gets me dizzy from clicking on the animals and the screen goes all over the place following the animal and it's like your spining in circles.... But, graphics are great!!! Feels like your there, sounds of the animals sound real, music is calming, you find ship wrecks, underwater ruins, and discover new amimals Oh! Oh! and the caves that you go in are so real and beautiful like the Mermaid's Tunnal that cave WOW! It's sooo cool and beautiful it makes you want to cry! The mamals are like actual size like the whales are HUGE! I highly recomend getting this before you get the second one Endless Ocean: Blue World, so you know what its like I don't have it but I've heard it's REALLY NICE too!!
Not as "Endless" as you would think
I got this game for Christmas one year and enjoyed it very much. The story line was a bit lacking but was fun.All though this game is not as "Endless" is it is supposed to be, you can still dive in quite a few places.The ocean creatures look extremely real and makes me feel like i am really diving.The music is very peaceful but if you like hardcore rock music while diving for some reason you can always upload music onto it from an MP3 player.
What are you people talking about!
I got this game when it first came out and it was endless boredom. This was the worst game i every played. Please don't waste your money and buy it, just rent it and you'll see what I'm saying.
very good game!
This has to be one of my favorite games for the wii. My favorite part of all this has to be how endless this really is! ive had this game for over a year now and i still haven't found all the animals! The only real problem with this game is the graphics i mean don't get me wrong they are excellent bu there were some glitches in the game maybe it was just my game or maybe it was all the games. idk. now lets talk about the sounds. they are very good you can here the person breathe very clearly. i do wish that when you are talking to the girl on the boat she could actually talk. But thats just my opinion. this game is very real like. It is real cause of all the fish in the game if you look one up even the weirdest ones they are all real! so over all this game is probably my favorite. I have not gotten blue world yet that may be even better!!!!!!!
So peaceful and expensive
this game is great if you have anger problems because it has great peaceful music. also it looks incredibly real.WOW....it feels like your really in the game.i got this game becasue i LOVE nature and everything like that. But i should not have wasted money on this, limited area. I like designing things so this was not the right game for me. i would recommend this game to people that like learning things about sea life and maybe older folks. The game takes forever to load. you need to have like an hour if you really want to start the game and make some progress. Also you get cool dolphins to train but that is hard. There are penguins here to, i think you can train them to. you need to have patience with this game or you will think it is a complete waste of time and money. I like this game because of the animals but man is it not worth the price
Must Get Wii Game
Endless Ocean is the best wii game out there. There easy to learn controls so u don't have to keep flipping through that manual just how to move forward. Another upside is that there is no storyline to this game so, you can do as much or as little as you want. Sometimes you get client requests to show them around a little. If you do a good job you get a reward. For example, the first client I delt with, I succeeded so they gave me a ballpoint pen so you can write messages underwater! The only bad thing about the pen is that u use a lot of ink in your messages so you have to keep erasing. As you get farther into the game you get more privileges like getting to pilot the boat and move it wherever you want, and getting to use the Nintendo Wi-Fi to dive with your friends. Overall this is a must have wii game for all new owners to the wii and people who aren't new to the wii system. I'm actually playing it now because it's so addicting.
This is a great game for the relaxed player. I am the ocean enthusiast and dolphin lover. In this game your partner is the dolphin that swims with you on every dive if you choose. I love the fact that every inch of this game map is full of ocean life. My children learn as I play with it. I also put this on my HDTV and it looks wonderful. (If you don't have HDTV you really are missing out in great graphics.) The missions are good because it keeps you interested and your Wii remote lets you know when you are nearby a rare item or really small fish. I also like the aquarium feature where you can go to the aquarium and set it up the way you want. The best is when you go into the white cave and meet the black dolphin. I been trying to get this dolphin to be my partner for the longest but that's okay. Beware of the guided tours though. If you don't know your fish you will lose funding and unhappy investors. The model girl is very picky so make sure you get her to the fish she requests right away. Overall this is a wonderful game to play especially around children. I just wish they would have promoted this on Earth Day.
Relaxation at its finest
This game rocks! Well actually it gently rolls like a lazy tide. If you are looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, this is it. Laid back, relaxing, no killing, just exploring, making friends with sea creatures and on our 55" HDTV it totally immerses you in a relaxing undersea world. The controls are easy to master, the "story" isn't terrific, but it moves along and it becomes a friendly place to go to unwind and relax. I would recommend this game for all ages, its games like this that set this system apart! It is a wonderful combination of guided play along with generous free play. No worries of monsters or dying or aliens. If I had to find ANY fault with this game (and I'm not even sure this is a fault) but I think some of the fish names are fictional. I think they could have added an excellent educational quality without hurting the fun of the game at all, by using actual fish species throughout the game. I am no marine life expert, but some of the fish names are well...fishy. If all the species are authentic then KUDOS to the makers on a flawless game! if not..wise up..and put out endless ocean 2 and use actual species with actual stats. They could even include an "exam" feature to get marine biology credentials in game to further the educational value. Overall....AWESOME..try it!
finally something diferent.
this game is great. it is a great concept. it makes good of wii controls. very simple yet immersive controls. it is unrealistic in the sense that sharks cannot eat or hurt you, and you can go to the abys without a sub. there are some missions, but that is not the point of the game. also the graphix are great. i recomend this to anyone. unfortunately, there is no multiplayer, but you can go online and play with your friends. i also forgot to say that the ocean is not endless, but huge. there are many different kinds of species, to find, and this girl on your boat asks you to do things throughout the game. also there is an aquarium where you can put the species that you have unlocked. you can also have dolphin partners, ride on whale, and explore caves and shipwrecks.
