Difficulty & Complexity


It's available on import only so I recommend you wait to see if they'll be releasing it in the UK, maybe they will, but I doubt it somehow! Ok, should you go for the Japanese version then you're mad as You'll have to speak fluent Japanese to the fish, and you'll have to understand what they say too. Go for the USA version, but be warned, you're going to have to brush up on you're American accent because these fish are from over the pond!

The idea is to talk to some virtual fish with rather wierd looking fish bodies and human faces. They talk back to you and actually respond to what you say - this is the first console voice recognition game ever made, but you will have to practice to get anywhere! By talking to the fish you'll be able to understand why this was Japan's best selling DC game, shifting 550,000 units. It's a very clever game indeed.

If you're rude to the fish, then they'll be sad, rude back and won't grow! they are so lifelike in personality, but it's more like breeding a set of cats - not fish! They always want attention, and when they ask for food they don't bother eating it!

A very interesting and original game that requires the Dreamcast microphone. It may well be the case that the PC version is released in the UK and the DC not. Oh well, these japanese - I don't know!

Great graphics and sound, slightly wierd, very inventive and so 4stars is what this gets because they don't always understand u!

    A bit of a dramcast fan I see, jester! I have been thinking of getting a new console for a while now, and I think you might just have persuaded me to go for a sega if the games are as good as you say! :-)
