OMG look at this, Everblue 2 on PS2.



Same music and visuals, but a draw distance of 2 metres.

^ The PS2 only had about 1/3 the RAM that Wii has, so it's not surprising the draw distance wouldn't be as far.

But... it's like 1 metre.

The draw distance is one frigging metre! No wonder people tell me playing it is claustrophobic and scary.

Is there anyone on his right mind or not on drugs who could argue otherwise?

No, but that does still leave 90% of the gaming community who would.

Endless Ocean 2 review "The sequel retains it's realistic credentials, but expands things to include a adventure experience, multiple locations and more varied interactions." EditDelete

Endless Ocean 2 is serenity perfected. But unlike the meandering first game, this Nintendo Wii sequel is a often tense and directed experience.

I have a soft spot for Endless Ocean. It's one of the few games that my other half really got into. I even came home from work one day to find her furtively playing it, much to the kid's delight. But more than that, it's a game like Flower on the PS3, that walks its own path.

Endless Ocean 2 takes the serene underwater elements of the first game, and punctuates them with action, surprise and puzzles. Within the first hour I had literally jumped at the encounter with a Tiger Shark, been awe struck by an underwater city and solves some platform game 'locked-door' type puzzles.

The main story, if you pursue it with intent, soon becomes a well paced experience. In the first Endless Ocean you had to really push at the game to discover what was going on. A clue here, a hint there and eventually you were allowed to piece things together. The sequel though is almost the reverse.

I was back into the almost heavenly experience of spending my time identify fish, collecting coins and mapping out the various dives.

It took me a while to remember I could kick back and take things easy. Once I did I was back into the almost heavenly experience of spending my time identify fish, collecting coins and mapping out the various dives.

As before, Endless Ocean 2, offers similar equipment upgrades for recovery of found items, but now there are a host of new tools at your disposal. There is a stun gun that can be used to incapacitate aggressive fish - this is also slightly strangely used to heal hurt fish, but there you go. There is an underwater scanner to look for salvageable items. There are also some new feeding and petting interactions for the fish. But largely this is the same as before.

The big addition though is that you can now explore a range of worldwide dive sites. Each of these also offers the chance to discover wildlife both underwater and on the shoreline with the new go a shore option. Along with the day-evening-night cycles this creates some beautiful settings and palettes in which to while away your time.

This is a truly grown up experience as well.

Endless Ocean 2 is a strong follow up to the first game. It expands the experience, offers a more directive main story and expands the experience around the edges. The genius for a family is that this now genuinely engages with a range of ages. Those young will be awe struck by the simple mind expanding nature of underwater diving - although those more sensitive may find the drama of some aggressive fish encounters a little scary. Others will be fascinated by the various creatures and fact they encounter - such as a Whale pup feeding from it's mother like other mammals. Then there are the action encounters to keep older siblings happy.

For me though, it's become a great way to while away the small hours of the evening. Taking to the sees, with a glass of Highland Park in hand, is both relaxing and edifying. As my tipple would imply, this is a truly grown up experience as well. This all the more so by taking pictures that could then decorate my real world desktop or mantle piece.

Endless Ocean was as much an diving simulator as it was a video game. The sequel retains it's realistic credentials, but expands things to include a adventure experience, multiple locations and more varied interactions.

Endless Ocean 2 footage and impressions Out in 8 days OMG

We go for a dive into the latest Endless Ocean title, and it’s looking good and wet.

Endless Ocean 2 is still a month away from release for the rest of the world outside Japan, and we will reserve our final judgement closer to release, but for now we’ll give you a quick run of what we’ve played so far and provide some video from the game. When a Endless Ocean sequel was announced, I was truly surprised, not because it wasn’t a decent enough game, but because we didn’t think it sold too well. Unperturbed, Nintendo and Arika have again teamed up for another dip in the Endless Ocean.

The first thing you’ll notice about Endless Ocean 2 over its predecessor is that it’s a much more polished affair this time around. Not only have the graphics been taken up a notch but the interface and story presentation are much better this time around. The graphical presentation of the game during the underwater dive sequences is amazing, with most of the on-land graphics looking a bit awkward. Underwater, there are plenty of ’wow’ moments that are great not only for how they look but for the scale of the game.


The first time you see a giant whale swim across, you will say ’wow’. Endless Ocean 2 offers more plenty more places to dive with places ranging from the tropics, a murky South American river and even the Antarctic and the Arctic.

The control scheme for Endless Ocean 2 largely remains the same as the original, however Arika have added in Classic Controller support this time around as well. While it does work for the most part, it doesn’t work the way most other games work, and instead remaps the Wii Remote’s controls to the Classic Controller, with the left stick simply becoming the equivalent of the Wii Remote’s pointer. The game’s music is better, too, with original music and licenced music providing the atmosphere, and the lack of a custom soundtrack option this time around matters not as the music in the game works better this time around.



So far, we’re about 7 hours into the game and the story line is so far entertaining and driving the purpose of the game pretty well. There is no voice acting again and the character models look a little dead, but the game is all about the action under the water and that’s where it shines.

Endless Ocean 2 has a ton of things on the side to do as well, which continue well beyond the game’s story mode. There is plenty to collect and see in this game and collecting it all will no doubt take players a while.

The game also returns with Wi-Fi Connection play with friends but there is also Wii Speak support which makes the whole diving-with-a-friend mode actually worth it.

The game is not one of action, so don’t expect a fast-paced underwater game. It’s a slow game and it is a relaxing and beautiful experience. Look for our full review of the game before the game’s release next month on the 25th of February.

But I'm looking forward to it GG.



And for once I like the us box better. Fonts could be a little smaller and low key though.




With that adventures of the deep tag and in script it makes me think of something like

this

or this

So close....


I can't get it right away. I have to finish the first one at least.  I am presently also working on silent hill, fatal frame and call of duty. Nevermind the stuff I want to get back to. Plus another 50 or so hours on RE:UC. (just kidding - as an aside  I don't get why people say the second one is better though. The only thing better to me are the graphics. Upgrading is simplified, the camera movement screws up my shots, there are no secret levels and boss damage meters are useless)

I don't like the first one at all because the diver is too low and the text is too big and terribly placed.

I can't argue with you there.
I think the japanese box text is the nicest everything is balanced better to me, north american one next even though the text is too big and generic and to me the pal sub-title font is an ugly script and its just crammed in there - and is overpowered by that ugly green sticker.
The original game's box is still the best to me. And better than the everblue boxes.
