I love this game, However renting it is somewhat of a difficult way to actually beat the game. They took a lot of time to make sure that the game was fun and educational but there are tons of things that must be done in order to beat the game. Renting is a great way to decide if you like it but buying is probably the obly way to beat the game unless you have plenty of time to spend on the game daily and then plan on keeping it for a month or more.

Lots of educational information about the animals and loads of fun training each animal you befriend. Takes a long time to beat it....so I recommend playing it a while and then buying it if you like this sort of thing....even my teenagers enjoy the game.

We bought it.

I was looking forward to this game since I heard about it. I thought the idea of swimming in the ocean and exploring was a great idea. I had read all the reviews and even seen short videos of the game in play.

I got it home and played for four and a half hours. The music and graphics are amazing. It's not that difficult to learn to swim and there's easy walk throughs at the start of the game.

There is actual game play involved as you have to get pictures of certain fish or places, befriend and train dolphins, and accomplish other tasks. The difference is that you don't have to if you don't want to. You are able to unlock aspects of the game by accomplishing the tasks though.

You can also play your own MP3s, but I don't plan on that as the music that's there really fits the different scenes and is really beautiful.

It's also a learning game as you interact with the fish, you learn more about them.

This game isn't for everyone. This really is a different breed of video games. If you're looking for something different, give this game a shot.

I rented this game for my fiance. However, I sat down to play it and it has become my new addiction. I absolutely love this game. I have played it for three days straight now. You get to see lots of really cool fish and other marine animals. There are task that you must do, but it is not a game that can be rushed. It truly is a relaxing game. I have never enjoyed a game so much. However, for you hard core gamers that like lots of action and violence, you better rent something else. There is no real action in this game. Something that I find a nice change in pace from other games where you are trying to beat the clock. I cannot wait to try the second installation of this series. This is a must rent, easy enough for children (as long as they can read) but enough challenge and entertainment for adults. Oh and yeah if you want a video game that talks to you, this is not it. There is a lot of reading, it is kind like playing underwater Sims.
