I bought this game after renting the first Endless Ocean. I loved it so much that I assumed that I would like this game. However, there are not words to describe how great this game is. We have not played a single other video game since buying this one. It is so addictive. It is better than the first one, if you liked the first Endless Ocean but thought it lacked action, then this is the game for you. I don't want to spoil anything about the game, but there is some action, better graphics, and the toys are cooler. Also, if like me you had trouble getting some of the fish in the first game to identify themselves, the creators of this game have fixed that issue. So if you liked the first game, you will love this one. Like I said for the last three days we have played it almost non-stop it is so addicting. If you did not try the first Endless Ocean, I recommend that you start with this one, it is so much cooler. However, I do not recommend this version for small children, let them stick to the first Endless Ocean. (Oh and the Aquarium is way better too)
I wasn't sure if I would like the game, but wanted to give it a try. The first day playing it, I liked it, but wasn't sure how much. After giving it a 2nd try, I began to love it and quickly became addicted to playing. The storyline is awesome to follow along with, but when you just want to relax and explore at your own pace, the jobs in treasure salvaging, working as a diving guide, and befriending & training dolphins, are a lot of fun! My personal favorite job in the game is the photography requests. I find it a lot of fun to locate certain fish & creatures, and set up the best photographs I can take, hoping my works will make the magazine covers. Photography is one of my passions, so naturally this part of the game was especially appealing & fun to me. I love that I can explore, and dig up treasure, work on photo requests, train dolphins and have dolphin shows any time I want to take a break from following the main storyline. That money earned comes in handy near the end of the game!
I recommended Endless Ocean: Blue World to my daughter who lives in Germany right now, so she and I could use the internet feature together. We both added the Wii Speak to it so we can enjoy chatting, while we dive together. A lot of fun exploring and a lot of laughs via Wii Speak & the internet. Amazing feature for us!!
I love this game and it didn't take long at all to decide to keep this rental (for only $14.99!!). I finished to the end of the storyline and I am STILL going, trying to complete my treasure finds, and the last of the underwater creatures for my encyclopedia on the Nine Ball Island table. There are still many tasks and quests for me to do before I have explored every last bit of this game. After that, I see myself starting over from the beginning!! Excellent game. Amazing graphics. Very relaxing, yet still challenging, as you explore the beautiful underwater world. A must have, in my opinion. I hope there is a 3rd version in the near future!
