Divers might find themselves escaping from or calming down attacking sharks, exploring shipwrecks or finding treasure. Endless Ocean: Blue World also has more creatures and improved graphics designed to fully immerse players in an ocean environment that they can freely explore at their own pace. [Nintendo] Expand

    Blue World is a great sequel: There's lots more to see and do, with refinements all around, from graphics to gameplay.

    Arika has taken the core of the first Endless Ocean and developed the idea for Adventures of the Deep so considerably that it has easily become one of the exemplar products on Wii, full stop.
  3. If you never got into the first game, then you'll probably skip this Ocean in favor of faster-moving waters. However, if you don't mind playing something with a laid-back pace, a gorgeous presentation, a strong co-op multiplayer component and lots of discovery, strap on the diving gear and enjoy this brand new world.

    A significant step up from its predecessor. [Mar 2010, p.89]
  5. Succeeds in offering something genuinely different, but it's still snooze-inducing.

    I appreciate what the game does and how well the game does it, but the overarching concept just never resonated with me with the same impact it had on other reviewers.

I am enjoying every moment of this great title and I am glad publishers encourage NEW and DIFFERENT games. There is a public for it. The first one was a million seller. Try it out, it's worth it.

    I know this game isn't for everybody, but it's a guilty pleasure for me. It's weird that I like it so much since it's barely even a game. It'sI know this game isn't for everybody, but it's a guilty pleasure for me. It's weird that I like it so much since it's barely even a game. It's missing two key game components: a challenge and a way to lose. It's just a fun and relaxing experience that captures the wonder of scuba diving without the tension of "I'm gonna die down here!" I'd say I don't recommend it if you're a hardcore gamer, but then again I consider myself to be a hardcore gamer. It's strange how many hardcore gamers like this game. So I'll say this. What's your favorite part of Skyrim? If you'd say the exploration like I would, this game is for you. Expand

No sea snakes, Colossal Squid, Bull Sharks or Beaked Whales?) EO2 is probably among the best games in the whole world. Adding a story, more areas, more species, "legendary" creatures, and treasure are all welcome additions to flesh out the original game's concept, not to mention beautiful background tracks from Celtic Woman. I think that was part of the main highlight in terms of its story - each song fits perfectly with the scene and atmosphere of the area it's played in. The enchanting "Nella Fantasia" fits in well with the mysterious, storybooklike Valka Castle, and the festive, tribal-sounding "Dulaman" is perfect for a South American river. And the solemn, lamenting "The Last Rose of Summer" makes traversing the eerie, lonely blackness of the Zahhab depths both frightening and entrancing at the same time. The overall experience is soothing and absorbing - it's the perfect escape. My only complaint is that you can't import MP3s via SD card as you could with the first title. Now, Celtic Woman is a FANTASTIC choice of music to swim to, but what if I want to swim to more of their songs? Or Hayley Westenra's "Prayer" from the first game? I'm really big about the emotional feel and mood of art, and what I loved about the first game was that the emotional experience was different with each track you played while diving. With the limited music choice in the jukebox, not much leeway is given in that respect, save for amusing juxtapositions like swimming in the dark, eerie, Zahhab depths to the upbeat, festive melody of "Dulaman". But in spite of that one minor setback, this is an engrossing, beautiful, gentle game with lots to do and no pressure or negativity. It's great for casual gamers. But if you're used to the constant thunder of assault rifle fire, shell explosions and your own loud cussing, you'd probably call this game "lame", "gay", "boring", "prissy", or similarly hateful words. This is not the game for people who like the feeling of adrenaline or testosterone. It is for calm, mild-mannered people who appreciate nature and fine art. Expand

I don't mind saying I bought it more for the free Wii Speak than for the game. That said, I've always had an interest in wildlife, and was looking forward to playing such a unique title. I never expected it to be as fun as it was. The environments and animals are gorgeous. It's hard to describe swimming with a blue whale as anything but awesome. But this game offers more than just nice scenery. I was amazed at how addicting and rewarding the exploration was. Just when I thought I had been everywhere I found new caves, treasures, and fish. The reason for my 2 point deduction stems not from the main gameplay but from the sidequests. There are many, MANY sidequests to go on. They vary from meeting mysterious new creatures to finding legendary treasures to just plain old exploration, and can be very satisfying and rewarding. My problem is not with the sidequests themselves but with their implementation. They are extremely separate from the main story, so you have to choose one or the other. It would have been nice to intertwine them at least a little, but I often found myself choosing whether to continue the story (which was better than I had been expecting) or go complete the latest addition to my quests. You can continue playing after beating the story, and its even recommended by the game, but to me that feels a little hollow.

    Overall this is a very absorbing game,and I would recommend it to anyone, especially people who enjoy marine life or general exploration. My qualms are purely my own. This is a great game.
