Boring, not enough fish or interactions, water is too dark

Summary: I've snorkled in some beautiful oceans, admittedly not as deep as this 'experience' takes you, prior to buying it I pictured clear beautiful waters with bright colors. NOT! The water is murky and too dark, some dark would be nice, not all dark. Like others I was looking for a zen experience, this is not real life after all and if it really is that murky and dark at deep levels (which I know it isn't), couldn't you lighten up for us?
Summary: I got this game when it first came out and it was endless boredom. This was the worst game i every played. Please don't waste your money and buy it, just rent it and you'll see what I'm saying.
Summary: I read so many nice reviews of this last year searching for x-mas presents. I bought it and my kids said it was boring and then I tried to play it and whooa... boring, dull... It's not for kids who have short attention spans. There's no action, it's very passive. My kids like to learn about ocean life but I didn't find this game informative or educational. I thought it would be calming for my kids, I was hoping for a nice game without shooting.
Despite the many positive reviews here...I think it's a HUGE disappointment.

Summary: I rented this on a monthly gamepass and I would strongly recommend renting it vs. buying to try it. I read many positive reviews of this game and thought it sounded great - free-form exploration would be great for my daughter (8 years old) who loves the sea & sea creatures (as do I).
Summary: This was one of the worst games I've played in a long time and I'm not exagerating. If you are a serious gamer don't buy this game, not even for a child. They will be so bored that they probably will fall asleep after the first ten minutes. I my self could barley keep my head up. The game is basically your in some ocean looking for buried treasure and studying fish, or something alone those lines.
Summary: Sorry, I found it boring. I thought there would be something to this, but after a couple of hours I put it away. If nothing even remotely exciting happens in the first couple of hours of "playing," I have little hope that things will improve. As someone else said, if petting fish is your bag, great. I can do that at the fish market (dead fish might at least be interesting since you can eat them, too). When I play a video game, I want to have at least a little fun.
Summary: I expected this to be a zen game that I could play to unwind after a long day. I was wrong. It's like a soap opera wrapped in a video game. It is very childish and boring. It might be great for kids, but definitely not for adults.
Summary: Whoever thought of this game should be punished. I don't know what it's about, never got the hang of it. Returned it within a few days. I don't know how people rate it even one-star. It should be less than zero.
Summary: I really didnt like this game it was too boring, not saying the graphics are bad as they were mega, but it didnt do for me as I like a bit of action, probably suit somebody who is very stressed who wants to relax, and ofcourse the younger generation, but not a game for me.
