Ecco the Dolphin, originally an innovative Dreamcast title, has made it to PlayStation2, with newly optimized graphics and design features that correct the main shortcomings of the Dreamcast version--primarily the inadequate player guidance. Ecco is a dolphin in a hyperrealistic 3-D underwater world. Players will control Ecco as he is sent back to the past and tries to reinstate the paradise of his future. How? Evil forces have conspired to destroy the planet, and if Ecco can recover the stolen and scattered dolphin power, he can restore the harmony between dolphins and humans.But first, you're going to have to learn to swim, eat, and think like a dolphin. Use different songs to communicate with other sea creatures and be prepared to defend yourself against predatory sharks. Later, go on to solve puzzles and work with others to accomplish your goals. The game features beautifully detailed seascapes, with creatures and plants that look and move realistically.
