Endless Ocean: Blue World
I LOVE THESE GAME IT IS JUST AS GOOD AS THE FIRST I LOVE IT WHEN IS SEEMS AS IS IT IS GOING TO IND BUT IT HAS ANOTHER THING TO IT I NEVER FINISHED IT BUT I LOVED IT wish i hadint sold it
I enjoy this game and just keep playing it!
For someone not quick enough to shoot all the baddies in a more action based game, this game is perfect for me. It is a good game to relax with for a couple of hours when the rest of the house is asleep. The music is good, the visuals are great, and there is enough challenges to make it appealing to the casual gamer. The game can continue well beyond the main plot, which I also appreciate. I have recommended this game to other casual gamers who wanted to play more than just the game that came with the wii, but didn't want a childrens game or an action game. I hope that an Endless Ocean 3 is in the works.
This is another RPG (Japanese) in disguise. If you are familiar with RPG's, they expect you to stop in the middle of the action, do an action, or switch to something else in order to finish it, then you go back to where you were or heading originally. Doing all this maybe annoying for those who just expect to push buttons and not miss any action whatsoever. For those who want to just dive or swim around and touch fish, you'll be dissapointed especially in the very beginning where you have to learn all the tools and tricks at your disposal,
The game is lengthy in describing its theme and there is too much narration since you have to follow a story in order to finally discover your goals step by step in the slowest manner possible, RPG style. I was fooled by the only review I found, and that's why I am writing this, so that you won't lose your patience. I bought the game used, but if you want to buy it new, just wait until it comes down in price, or just buy the first of the series or better yet, borrow it from someone to see if it's worth to you.
Anyway, the graphics are great (for the Wii which has PS2 quality graphics!), but like I said, in order to get to the next level or goal, you have to follow boring people's advice every time. At the islands where you can surface and walk, the interaction is minimal and boring. I have also not being able to take the boat or jet ski for a ride, which would have been more fun. But I have not finished the game, yet. Anyway, this is a game more or less for a "marine biologist". Sometimes this game feels more like an interactive documentary and not a game, and that's why I think this game is mediocre at best (boring) regardless of graphics. If you like to spend time clicking to narration, be constantly stopped in the middle of your discoveries, and not hear a sound when other people talk, but read everything on the screen, then, this is your kind of game. The dolphin in the beginning is also lame, since it only does one trick at the time and it takes longer for him to dive and come back out of the water, than the time it takes for the trick itself. Perhaps the dolphin interaction gets better, but I doubt it. Even my 7 yr old daughter likes to swim around and look and interact with the fish, but when it gets to do the goals, she hands me the controller because I think she also gets annoyed by the written directions on the screen.
This could have been a better game if they had left the annoying RPG elements out! Hope this helps
Better than the first
I love the Endless Ocean games and this one it definatly better than the first. You have to work in this one, unlike the first, which helps keep you busy. Wetsuits and swimsuits are mostly bought along with better tanks, battery extensions, and ink pens. Oh yeah, better tanks because unlike the first, in this one you can run out of air! The more you dive the higher the level so the longer you can dive. You can look for sunken treasure which gets you a larger chunk of money. My favorite part of the new game is that unlike the first, you can have all of the dolphin partners offered. They don't preform at the same time but they can end up doing some pretty amazing tricks that they can learn. One large change that takes time to get used to was the animals (sharks, crocs, eels) attacking you. I found it more convinent that you can upload your pictures (I posted 3 of mine here) on a SD card. All in all, it's a huge step forward than the first. If they keep this up in (if they make) the third it will only be better.
I could not get myself away from this game. I played it for exactly 201 hours. I finally pulled myself away and I went back to play it again, it was the most boring thing I ever played. If you can get yourself to play only this game, you may never stop. The graphics are amazing. The most amazing graphics for the wii ever. The music is the most annoying thing ever and you will go insane. It is still a good overall game. I would reccomend it to someone that would really dedicate themselves to playing it.
When I got this game it looked great. Interactive animals, sunken treasure, beautiful graphics, hidden secrets, and it was that way! For a while. After about an hour of gameplay it got extremely lame. I mean, yeah, graphics are nice and all and searching for coins are great, but the treasure really has no variety, and there should be more to a game than just graphics. The music is really annoying. The plot isn't particularly strong, and the characters aren't very interesting. You explore places, but it takes FOREVER and then you find the same artifact 20 times. Some people like beautiful games with no good plot, but I really don't. The most action this game has is when you have to tranquilize a shark. Yipee. I realize everyone else loves it, but I like my games to be action packed and challenging. This game is just kind of boring.
This was my first time buying a scuba simulation game. I am overjoyed with the visual quality of the game. It was well though out well scripted and better still the audio complimented the visuals to a perfect t. The music is very soothing and adds an authenticity to the tranquil dive locations. The "dangerous" species of fish and other water based enemies are appropriate in that they don't bite or attack the players in an overtly violent manner. This game is perfect for people that like an open ended experience that can last quite a while . I have dedicated over 30 hours to this game and still find myself coming back for more everytime I need to relax or want to try and add a few more species to the in game book. I have yet to complete the game in it's entirety. I would highly reccomend this game to anyone that loves the sea and the plethora of differnet creature that live there.
Endless Ocean means endless fun
Great game. The graphics make this game look absolutely beautiful. The controls are great, and the story is actually really good. This is a great game for anyone.
A lot more Endless then the first!
This game was a fantastic creation! The story is a lot better.It is even more Endless then the first! So many more sea creatures show up in this! I was amazed with how great this game was! One of my favorites. SPOILER ALERT! My only disappointment in this game was the end, which was just another white whale.
everything is a 10, Casual and hardcore gamers this is awesome, also great to play with kids. there are uncountable thing you can do - From Training whales and Dolphins - to being creator of the aquarium and diving under water in various locations. there is a main story line and sub-story lines.once the story line is done you have the option to "play around" and need people on tours to find treasure and different species is creature. this game is awesome. Must have for anyone, not high intense action but the game will have you attention for 100's game play hours.
