Ecco: The Tides of Time (Sega CD)
Ecco the dolphin plunges back into action in this graphically gorgeous Adventure CD.
Dive through awe-inspiring 3-D ocean worlds, morph into creatures of the sea and sky, and save the Asterite to restore peace to the waters.
The CD version packs in everything that the Genesis includes, plus 20 minutes of dazzling new animation and a hypnotic sound track with real whale and dolphin sounds.
And if you play the game right, you'll find the original Ecco the Dolphin hidden deep within the mysterious seas.
Every year a school of dolphins drives a massive school of fish into the harbor of a remote Aftrican village. Why? Because they want to.
