If you like animals, get this game! I am really into animals and nature and this game is very realistic! You actually get to experience what it's like to be a dolphin. There is a storyline where you have to help other marine animals, collect objects, etc. but to be honest I spend most of my time just swimming and doing flips! The story line can be a bit difficult at times so maybe that's why I didn't really finish the game. The first couple of levels are realitively simple, though. The graphics are superb, the sound also excellent. I think I could probably fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. I think you can get it for around $20, which makes it a fairly good value. I used to play the old Ecco games for Sega, this one is much better! I think it is a little underappreciated, though, for some unknown reason. It is NOT just a kids game - as I am in my 20s and I still love it. I think you have to like open ended play to some extent though (which I do). So if you are like me and love marine animals - get this game! You won't regret it.
