    Without a doubt, Beyond Blue sets out to blend immersion of the deep blue seas and real, high-quality documentary material to provide an unforgettable experience. It may be short, but it should not be missed. While it is also available on mobile devices, it is certainly best experienced on a PC or console with a nice, large screen and some headphones.

    Beyond Blue does exactly what it set out to do. It isn't trying to compete with action oriented games but instead focuses on a part of our world so often overlooked to create an incredible sense of place, beauty, and conservation out of the people playing it.

    Beyond Blue is a short game. Very short, actually. Its central narrative can be overcome in just over three hours, and the additional content doesn't add much more. But it is worth playing it as an experience. it succeeds in delighting and amazing players by putting the ocean world right in the center of the stage. It makes us think about our actions and responsibilities as humans in relation to this unknown kingdom, sunk in the deep ocean.

    Beyond Blue struggles as a narrative adventure game but shines as an educational tool that brings awareness and reveals some of the ocean's secrets.

    Though it never really rises above its simple premise, the gorgeously immersive Beyond Blue may just be as close to deep-sea diving as you can get without a wetsuit (or the stress).

    The main problem of Beyond Blue is that, in the end, it doesn't do enough to fulfill its main task: to inspire curiosity about the beautiful Blue world of the ocean and make you want to watch all the documentaries of the same name.

    If you want to learn more about the ocean, this would be a great experience for you. If you want a beautiful, relaxed experience about fish, Beyond Blue just about misses the mark on that, unfortunately.

But that's good since it's relaxing and if you're ever having a bad day or feeling low, you NEED to play this. I firmly believe that games like this can be a great aid for mental health; it's certainly done that for me since I still suffer from depression occasionally. Those giving this game low scores are doing themselves a disservice. Expand
