Summary: Instead of describing this game's gameplay as plenty of other reviews have, I just want to touch on a few topics that aren't immediately apparent concerning Endless Ocean for Wii. First off, Endless Ocean for Wii is actually the third game in Arika's underwater diving simulation series.
Summary: A delightful and mellow game that has you wander and swim at your leisure, but it probably won't appeal to everyone. The fish are vibrant and full of color, and lots of fascinating info about them is hidden away for you to earn, but the transitions are roughly drawn (low graphic rate) and pretty...
Summary: This game is so different from any of the other games I've seen for the Wii. Actually, it's more of a form of relaxation and discovery since the game story itself is very relaxed. You don't really have any heavy duty "requirements", you mostly just move along at your own speed, discovering the world...
Summary: A unique and beautiful game that allows you to explore a rather well-sized piece of ocean that includes reefs, deep trenches, caves, and sunken ruins. Playing the part of a professional diver, you will have the opportunity to interact with and identify many real-world creatures.
Summary: Endless Ocean was a birthday gift for my eleven year old grand daughter. My eleven year old grandson said, "Oh Grandma, that is such a lame game." I bought it for Sami anyway and she loves it! Her three year old sister sits beside her and squeals when she sees a sea creature.
Summary: As much as I found this to be a snoozefest, I admit I didn't buy it for myself. My seven and four year olds think this is a great game. Unfortunately, my four year old can't play it without me being right by his side (lots of reading), so that means I have to sit through it all.
Summary: I bought this game for myself since I thought I would find it relaxing and educational. Since I have had it, my 14 yr old daughter plays it nonstop! She loves it. Mocking me in the beginning she thought there was no challenge to something like this.
Summary: Endless Ocean is an underwater simulator that is surprisingly good. Although this game does not feel like a game more like watching a documentary from the Discovery Channel, but does give you somewhat of a relaxing experience that is very entertaining to say the least.
This is NOT really a game, but an adventure of sorts.

Summary: Let me start by saying I bought this for my non gaming wife, just so she could have something where you can't lose, you can't die, there is no challenge, no levels to beat, and time is virtually meaningless. All of this is achieved in Endless Ocean. A non-gaming game genre!
Summary: I am no "video gamer" but got this for myself in case my kids ever let me have a crack at the "Wii". I must say as a SCUBA diver this brings back memories, and there is a little bit of adventure, but this is the kind of game you can turn down the lights and just enjoy exploring the sights and the...
