  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. Paying 800 points for this game nets you a pretty dry experience.
  5. There's no doubting that Sea Life Safari is a relaxing and calming experience, some may say mind numbing. It's difficult to see where the claimed “unlimited replayability” enters the picture.
  6. Not a game, more a visual toy to keep your wee ones amused but without returning to the same tired old grumble about Xbox Live Arcade titles, 800 points is too high a price for the Xbox equivalent of an interactive screensaver.
  7. The most innovative feature is that different creatures may appear depending on what time you dive.

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
