Review: My Aquarium Seven Oceans eShop

Depart to the conquest of the world’s biggest fishing spots and bring back with you the rarest species. Adjust your fish tanks and change the parameters of the water in order to make your fishes happy to be there. Like real fishes, they will need good care! Tropical and River fishes, mammals like dolphins and whales, many fishing spots to discover, various others fishermen to meet and a lot of objects and effects to decorate your fish tanks.

  • Directionless game flow.
  • Fishing is simple with no skill or timing really needed.
  • Pointless character interaction at world locations.
  • HUD is clunky and un user friendly.
  • DSi game so no 3D.
  • Not really a game.

In Summary, Calling this game would be your first mistake.  It’s a chilled interactive screensaver honestly. If owning fish is your thing yet don’t want the hassle of real world issues then this is for you. You will get bored of this quickly due to the menu structure and slow pace of it all.  So in short it’s fish tank porn for some yet boring mindless Finding Nemo it ain’t gameplay.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
