Summary: The gameplay looks great, if you can get that far, without frustration. I understand that if the game didn't have a story line, and a point, it would become boring, pretty fast, but I wish there were an option to by pass all this training, and unlocking. I'm not interested in training, etc. I've been playing for 3 days, and it's a nice, laid back game, but I'm frustrated, and plan to trade the game in. I'm too impatient for this type of game.
Summary: The Good: Amazing graphics, wonderful music, custom soundtrack, you can learn about sea life The Bad: Almost no game play involved, pointless multiplayer, paper-thin customization, the ocean isn't so endless as the title suggests I checked out EO because of its concept: Underwater scuba diving and interacting with animals. Well this wasn't really executed as well as it could have been.
Summary: My kids love the ocean and this game helps them to keep in touch with it. At the beginning it was a little difficult for one of the to handle the control but with a little practice and instructions they started to explore and have fun. They can't read yet so I have to help them but it is ok. Nowadays it is important to spent more time with the family doing good activities with them.
Summary: This game is not for intense gamers. It's a calm gaming experience with beautiful scenery. You jump off the boat and dive through the deep blue see to find various sea creatures. The best part is the online experience. I can play online with friends. We can dive together so it's kind of cool. I'll admit, after a while it does get a bit monotonous so I put it aside for a month or so, then came back to it. It was a nice experience again.
A great game w/ a few flaws...not for completionists!

Summary: Since there are a lot of reviews on Endless Ocean, I'll give just a brief overview of the game, but instead focus most of my review on the things I didn't like about the game. There are a few low ratings, so maybe some people have hit on these negatives, but if not here it is. Endless Ocean is an exclusive Wii game that allows the player to become a scuba diver. So that's pretty much the gist of the game.
Summary: My 9 year old daughter is a great reader and fascinated by ocean life, but there just wasn't enough action in this game. Beautiful and informative, but boring for kids, and even for adults with longer attention spans.
