Excerpt: To put it mildly, Ecco Jr. lacks the challenge and purpose found in the previous Ecco the Dolphin games. Rather than fix the aimless mazes or collision problems people experienced in the first two games, the developers instead chose to strip away the hazards and breath meter entirely, gearing the third game toward the littlest of little ones. Ecco Jr. is a 2D underwater adventure that puts players in control of a young bottlenose dolphin or an Orca whale.
Pros: Young players will appreciate the simple gameplay, Swimming around and splashing out of the water is fun
Cons: Ecco can't be hurt, so there's no challenge, Collecting goals are easy and repetitive, 27 short levels means a rapid play-through
