Sam Leitch: The game requires a lot of time for seemingly little pay off. I can however appreciate how some gamers could become fully immersed in the game world and EO2 is a nice game to wind down to. It's a pity that there is no custom soundtrack this time as I feel the game is best enjoyed with some progressive trace playing in the background. Not everyone will appreciate this game, but you have to give the developers props for doing something different, and I think it would also be a great game for younger gamers too. I certainly wouldn't feel guilty letting kids kill a few hours underwater.
At the end of the day, you have to ask: could the cash you lay down for this game perhaps be better used towards a vacation?
