    It does what every great game should -- keeps you guessing as to what might happen next.

    If you're a stickler for time, or actually want to keep your REAL pets alive, then Seaman may find himself flushed down the toilet.
  3. A truly new gameplaying experience that is worth checking out.

    If anything, this will attract non-gamers, and that is a very good thing.
  5. Far from perfect, but as a virtual pet simulation, it's the best of it's kind.
  6. This is not a title I would recommend to the average gamer, but it is a unique experience and I found it well worth the time, just for the weirdness factor.
  7. After hours of useless conversation, wasted time, and unrewarding returns, chances are that Seaman will start to remind you of your ex-girlfriends.

    It's a novel idea......It's good idea really ,but i can't get over the slowness and the repetiveness of this game.
