    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.

    A truly new gameplaying experience that is worth checking out.

    If anything, this will attract non-gamers, and that is a very good thing.

    Far from perfect, but as a virtual pet simulation, it's the best of it's kind.

    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.
