I really enjoyed the game, it was a fun change from most games, you don't need to collect jewels to level up etc, you get to be a diver and for the most part just chill, look and some fish learn about them and just have fun. I found it very relaxing, would definatly recommend this game to anyone, no matter your age.
I have played a plethora of games for the Wii. Most of them you walk (or fly, float, race, run, ride) around and shoot people or objects. Others are semi-entertaining half excercise, half finesse objective based games.
This one breaks the mold. There are no other games that allow you to discover, at will, the ocean and it's great mysteries. Finding species that you have never seen or heard of before, this game takes you on an odyssey. It also teaches you a lot about each animal encountered.
My nephew was very hesitant about trying this game due to the lack of "killing and explosions". I put a bunch of his favorite songs on an SD card and walked him through the beginning and that was it. I have never seen him get so involved in a game (especially after three weeks of daily play) and so excited to find and discover new items. He is nine years old, plays all the first person shooter games and enjoys this game more than those and maybe more than I do.
Very impressive. There are some quirks but nothing you can't overlook.
The second one, "Blue World" has more challenges and the animals you encounter are more realistic (i.e. sharks attack you, barbs on Lionfish actually hurt and you have limited air supply) but this one is more relaxed and low key. Still a great game. I have both games, play each one depending on my mood.
