    A really really dull game. I wanted to like this, it looked like StarFox but with sea monsters and well I swam around for a bit, then ate some fish and attacked other monsters. Doesn't sound too bad but its just done in a really mundane way. You collect fossils and then you turn the DS off and wish for those moments of your life back.

    Best DSI game in ages, though it is pretty boring.

    Yeah pretty much but I like to go into a game hoping for the best. D3 publish a load of crap over here and then came the goodness of Puzzle Quest!

    I agree, I would love to see some cryptozoologic mode -or something similar- in Endless Ocean [​IMG]

    Fucking DSI. Some of their games have vaguely interesting concepts, but the execution is without exception so terrible you wonder why they even bothered.

    Everytime someone argues that piracy kills developers, I point at DSI! [​IMG]

    When I saw the name of this game, the "Snes EVO - Search for Eden" came to my mind... anyone who have played Sea Monsters could tell if is an EVO like?

    Thanks! [​IMG]
