Excerpt: I had high hopes for Endless Ocean Blue World. There were some real high points in the original Endless Ocean video game on the Wii. There were also some areas that needed to be addressed. Endless Ocean Blue World tries to make an adventure out of this video game.
Summary: In a day and age where most gamers tend to be shocked and appalled at seeing a fifty or sixty dollar price tag on a game that is essentially garbage, Endless Ocean: Blue World is a refreshing breath of air.
Scuba diving sequel adds danger and an engaging story.

Summary: Parents need to know that Endless Ocean: Blue World is a scuba diving simulation game with a story that provides you reasons to dive in the oceans of the world. Unlike the first game in this series where you couldn't get hurt as you swam, in this game you will encounter sharks and other menaces that...
Conclusion: Endless Ocean: Blue World is another enjoyable adventure in the unexplored vastness of the Earth's oceans. As long as you can deal with the action-lite gameplay and lackluster storytelling, there is a lot to like.
Excerpt: Four hours into Endless Ocean: Blue World , around the time you’re drawing obscene stick figures in luminescent, underwater ink to attract poisonous lionfish away from a sunken throne room, you might start wondering who this game was made for.
Excerpt: Call it Nintendo Wii ’s second scuba-diving simulator, but we think Endless Ocean: Blue World is much, much more than that. It’s a sea -life-spotting adventure that’s set in spectacular – not to mention WET – locations around the world – all easily explored using your Wii Remote !

Cons: slow pace, Story is thin and uninteresting, Sharks are

Excerpt: The ocean is both beautiful and inconvenient. It's beautiful because, well... just look at it. Swelling waves, a deep blue expanse with no true borders in sight, schools of fish and the mesmerizing sight of shafts of sunlight could keep an artist busy for all eternity.
Summary: Endless Ocean: Blue World offers an intriguing premise that doesn't live up to its potential. Poor writing, painful music, and several design choices constantly interrupt the core gameplay; however, scavenging for treasure in the deep and observing its sea life remains curiously compelling.
Pros: Lots of fascinating marine life, Inviting environments, Constant reward system keeps things moving
Cons: Horribly talky, Terrible presentation, Pulls the player out the experience too much
