Summary: This is a fantastic game, unlike anything else. It's gorgeous and haunting, relaxing and fun. It takes a good amount of patience as the side objectives can take awhile and the story itself is long. However, I loved that aspect of the game and found it to be a plus instead of a negative.
Summary: Don't buy this for grade school aged kids. It's for patient people who can sit and read subtitles. Also, there's no major goals that are set here and the pace is very slow. It's not Super Mario, that's for sure. It's beautiful though. Really lovely ocean scenes and somewhat educational.
Great for all ages, a little disappointed in religious elements.

Summary: What I love about: The graphics and music are great! It's also a great educational tool--my 8-year-old is already remembering a lot more names and facts about various sea life. It also teaches being responsible for nature (don't throw trash in the ocean).
Summary: The characters and educational content of Endless Ocean Blue World have become a real part of who we are. My teen had no interest in ocean creatures before this game. Now she can name every of the 350 species.. Lovely music by Celtic Woman.
Summary: My daughter received this as a Christmas gift when she was 5 or 6 and it continues to be her favorite game! It does have some reading that she needed help with at first, but now it is no problem. Even her younger brother loves it and he is now 6!
Seriously fun game - much better than the original

Summary: After playing and enjoying the original Endless Ocean game for the wii I bought this one expecting it to be much the same as the first. There are obvious similarities (same type of game, many of the same fish, etc.) but this one is by far a lot better.
