Endless Ocean: Blue World builds on the ocean experience first introduced with Endless Ocean™.While the last game emphasized relaxation, this one is designed with more adventure in mind. Divers might find themselves escaping from or calming down attacking sharks, exploring shipwrecks or finding treasure. Endless Ocean: Blue World also has more creatures and improved graphics designed to fully immerse players in an ocean environment that they can freely explore at their own pace.

They have completely outdone themselves on this one. So much to see, so much to do! Quests and salvage missions, stark, new glacial landscapes, murky jungle river waters, and even sunken castles and ruins where you can get trapped if you're not careful!
There's a private reef you can design to your own tastes, an aquarium you must keep stocked with a varied and ever changing display of creatures to hold your visitors' interests - there's money to be earned so you can buy gear and supplies, and a wider selection of diving partners to help and guide you through your journeys.
I'd love to say more, but I have to get back - apparently, there's a skeleton to be found somewhere...
The Blue World awaits...dive in!
Dive & Relax. Leave the world behind you and become on with the underwater realm.
The locales are beautifully designed, the fish, whales, dolphins and the rest of the marine life move in a very realistic fashion. The missions are pretty simple and most have an educational parameter but it is mostly about exploring at your own pace. Well, you do have to mind the oxygen level...
The underwater sounds are very well made and placed whereas the background music is a soothing companion. All in all ENDLESS OCEAN: BLUE WORLD is an excellently designed and produced diving-simulation game.
This is a game that will bring you home early, it will put a smile in your face and it will relax you like no other game.
I cannot emphasize this enough: this game is DIGITAL MASSAGE. It soothes your nerves, relaxes your body and puts you in a very easygoing mindset.
I am flabbergasted by the educational merit of this program. In the short hours that I've played this game (ok not so short, I'm up to 24 hours since the release) - I've learned, without effort, all the water life this program has to offer. With each fish, mammal, bird, even lizard!! - there is a small fact file with easily remembered names, facts, and figures. I'm thrilled when watching shows with marine life - and I'm able to identify many of the lifeforms, as well as put facts to each one. I REALLY hope that more educational programs come from this franchise, as it's a perfect teaching tool - with the right amount of education, fun, and curiosity-breeding features.
There are not only facts on each life form's files, but more:
- Cutscenes (short videos)
- Quests that reveal more information on life forms
- Experiments and Jobs
- You also have to know things about certain life forms in order to not get hurt in the game. Hurt does not mean what it means in most games, this is a far more laid-back kinda feature. Love that so much!
Cons to the educational aspect are that certain "green movement" agendas are shown here, only slightly. This might be a plus for some, or a negative for others. I would also say that any hard core marine biologist might find this somewhat lacking in information, but for laypersons - great!
More information can be obtained from many of the life forms by interacting with them, unlocking more facts. Very nice feature.
This program also touches on diving skills, equipment, and dangers. Also good.Read more ›
Overall, the three of us give this game 5 stars. There is a lot of reading though as the other characters in the game don't speak out loud and the quests are all explained by them. This is a plus, rather than a minus, since our guy is keen to learn and takes pride in his ability to read what is being explained to him. If not.... it is a fun adventure to sit alongside your child and read to them.
We started with Blue World but have already ordered the more relaxing Endless Ocean 1 and look forward to a THIRD if they ever make it. The graphics are very nice and if you toggle to first person (rather than viewing your diver from slightly behind) you can almost fool yourself into believing you are truly exploring beautiful endless waters.
Finally, here is a game that is made more for pure enjoyment than attaining the next level. There is basically zero frustration involved. Highly recommended.
Hope you enjoy as much as we do. Cheers!
