Game Reviews

Overview

Two years ago Sega rocked the video game world with the release of Ecco the Dolphin, the first video game to give players the experience of exploring the undersea world as a bottlenose dolphin. Ecco's quest to defeat the Vortex was big, bold, and out of this world. Now his adventures continue with a game that's even bigger. Even better. It's loaded with the features that made Ecco so much fun, plus new 3-D scenes, time travel, new suspended water tubes, and the ability to morph into different animals. The difficulty is also better balanced than in the original. With more than 40 levels and a password save, this is an undersea adventure you'll never forget.

The Return Of the King Of the Sea

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Go Back In The Water...

Ecco returns from the Vortex system a transformed dolphin, able to live beneath the sea without coming up for air. But evil has followed him from the planet Vortex. The Vortex Queen has destroyed the magical Asterite. If it grows strong, the Vortex will strip the Earth seas of all life. To recover the globes of the Asterite and restore tranquillity to the seas, Ecco must travel across distance and time, battling undersea enemies, racing through teleport rings, and singing to friends from the past and future.

Ecco: The Tides ofTimehas tons of surprises for Ecco fans both old and new. The intrepid dolphin can now travel through the air with singers of the future, in tubes of water, and in the form of a seagull. And he can morph into other sea creatures as well. Each of the 40-plus levels are bigger and more fun than ever, and they're filled with puzzles, treacherous twists and turns, old and new friends, and many new enemies.

Ecco's mission to restore the Asterite will take you far into the future ...and into new, uncharted universes of gaming fun and challenge. This time, the Vortex Queen knows you're coming. This time she is prepared. And if she defeats you, the Queen will be ready to feed. Stay tuned to Sega Visions for an upcoming special strategy section on Ecco: The Tides of Time.

Hot Hints

Hints:

  1. In the Hungry Ones level, don't touch every single metasphere you find.
  2. When you're in shark form, the only way you can get oxygen is by swimming back and forth, taking in oxygen from the water itself.
  3. Look for a pulsar in each level. Sonar it to add a four-way sonar attack to your abilities. Press Button A twice to use the attack.
  4. If you sonar teleport rings in the 3-D levels, they disappear.
