If you hate the water, you’re gonna LOVE this game!
My wife is actually terrified of games with underwater components and won’t lay a finger on this game, which is a shame because otherwise I think she’d enjoy it. I haven’t given this game enough of a shot to give it a heartfelt yay or neigh, but I think I (personally) will tip over into the YAY category because, in my sporadic game play, I never really encountered any actual NEIGH worthy stuff.
The ocean is gorgeous, the creatures are varied & interesting, the building & exploration smooth and intuitive. Pick it up- worst case scenario is that something terrifying eats you under the water.
I’m just not much of an underwater guy I guess.
