Wii FANS CAN NOW GET ADVENTUROUS!
Something’s not right with the newest video game to hit the Wii.
In fact, besides strapping on an air tank and exploring a tranquil sea of aqua hues and brightly colored fish, there’s very little to do at all.
And that’s what makesÂ Endless Ocean a perfect escape. It’s an undersea exploration simulator without rules, challenges or even a point. It’s pure, pressure-free enjoyment.
The controls are simple (point the cursor, press the button and swim), the sea life friendly (pet a fish enough and it will tell you its species) and the water beautiful (this is a sea painted with bright colors and realistic-looking plants). Explore the waters at your own pace. Accept the suggested tasks, or don’t. It’s up to you.
It’s the complete antithesis to everything that’s popular right now. It’s fresh and original and the perfect way to relax. Lazily spending time on (and under) a boat in the middle of a tropical diving paradise? Now this is an experience.
Endless Ocean’s only knock is the lack of high-resolution graphics, something we hope will be remedied on the next generation of Wiis.
