Jump into the deep blue ocean and swim with the fishes in this incredible new game for the Nintendo Wii. Heres our review.

Nintendo's new Endless Ocean game has arrived for the Nintendo Wii and it's... weird. More of a simulation than a game, it frees you to explore the ocean and all the cool stuff in it, from schools of fish to sunken ships, reefs, whales and more. But what are you supposef to do? How do you win? Get all the info on this cool new game with Gary's game review!

Exploring the Endless Ocean

No bad guys, no health points, no weapons - just you, the ocean, a lot of fish and an awesome soundtrack. Endless Ocean is all about letting you play around in the open waters, completing missions if you want, but with no real pressure to get anything done. It's basically a SCUBA diving simulation with lots of cool extra features - like a pet dolphin and online multiplayer.

Fun Fish and Awesome Adventure

If you've ever wanted to try SCUBA diving but couldn't, or if you're looking for a stress-free game that lets you explore a beautiful blue world without aliens trying to eat you, Endless Ocean is the game for you. Not only can you train a dolphin friend to do tricks, you can plug your own mp3s into the soundtrack, get facts on the fish you find and even hook up with a friend online and dive together.


It's not really a game. Seriously. If you're looking for action, or a way to win, you better bring a blanket because it's going to be naptime. The controls are a bit awkward too, but at least you aren't dodging monsters as you fumble with them.

Worth the Plunge?

With an entire world to explore, Endless Ocean is an amazing game. It's not something you can win, but it's a great way to chill and spend hours exploring and learning about the ocean and the different creatures that live in it. Check it out or you'll be missing something special.

Thumbs Up:
