Spotlight on Endless Ocean

I recently found out about this game through Game Informer, a video game magazine. The review was not very detailed, but the words intrigued me. The game is about sea exploration, and finding new underwater species. A few days ago I found out there was online play as well, and that further got me excited about its upcoming release on January 22nd in the US.

There is just something very magical about exploring the ocean. A calm tranquility that takes you away from the noise and stress in this world. I have watched many videos of this game, and I am in awe of the graphics and music. Hopefully I will be able to play with someone online… it just might be the sleeper hit of the year.

Here is some product information about the game:

Explore an undersea world in Endless Ocean. Swim through coral reefs, explore ancient shipwrecks, meet local wildlife and search for sunken treasure on your own team with no time limits and no pressure.

Features:

* Dive in exotic locales: from tide pools to the wrecks of World War II bombers

* No set time limits and no way to fail, you’re free to relax and explore however you see fit

* Find, identify, and catalog hundreds of different types of marine life such as penguins, clownfish, dolphins, sharks and the blue whale

* Go online with Nintendo WFC and meet friends and family for an underwater sightseeing tour. Once you exchange friend codes, you and a friend can dive together on the same screen. While the two of you are exploring the ocean, you can communicate using a series of pre-set messages.

* Exploring is easy just point the Remote in the direction you want to go and hold the B Button and to examine objects, just point at them and press the A Button

Take a look at the beautiful trailer:

This game is only a suggested $29.99, so its definitely worthy of a purchase, or at least a rental.

What are your thoughts on Endless Ocean?

If you would like to play sometime with me, send me your Wii friend code and I will add you to my friend’s list.
