Should you be looking for a brief distraction or simply a game with a bare input to see most of what it has to offer, Beyond Blue provides a quaint, if a touch short, detour away from the regular catalog of current-year releases. While everything around the core presentation is not exactly extravagant or worthy of anything but a passing glance, that’s not to say E-Line Media haven’t at least made the feeling of moving about bodies of water one you can easily immerse in.
Beyond Blue was a fun, if short, experience. Gameplay and exploration were far more fun and relaxing than the actual story, which felt forced at points. While the scope and the number of animals you get to see are extremely limited, the scientific accuracy is commendable. In addition, every animal you do encounter looks gorgeous. If you’re looking for a fun distraction for a couple of hours and love the ocean, Beyond Blue might just be right up your alley.
Although some of the environmental messages are lost, the act scanning Beyond Blue's creatures and exploring its realistic environments makes for a brilliant educational tool. Its chapters feel like a collection of calm, interactive lectures rather than a passionate plea for action—and that's far from being a bad thing.
