  1. I was surprised by the addictiveness of Sealife Safari.
  2. Yes, it doesn’t have the depth of Pokemon snap, but it has charm, and it is a lot of fun to boot. Lots of secret areas, special pictures lots of things to see make this game great.
  3. If the premise of taking photos of fish on rails sounds good to you, then you won't be disappointed — and if it doesn't, then move along because there's nothing to see here.
  4. There's so little to the game that it's hard to imagine it holding anyone's interest for long.
  5. A fun concept, but the lack of depth turns it into a snorkelling trip rather than an undersea odyssey. [Aug 2008, p.95]

    Sea Life Safari is just plain short. After 3 hours of play, I had access to all of the levels, had captured every species of fish in my log book, and had unlocked every Achievement except the one for finding all of the golden shells in the game.
  7. The most innovative feature is that different creatures may appear depending on what time you dive.

    This is a fine game for my 6 and 4 year olds and for the price that's exactly what I wanted. They were totally engrossed with the mechanics of the game and it is completely non-violent and cute little game for the tikes. Far too simple for grown-ups, which is probably why the score is a bit low. Expand
