Comparativement, la réalisation n'a rien à envier à la version Megadrive, rapidité et fluidité sont au rendez-vous.

Ecco the Dolphin har nämligen en egenskap som vi tycker att ett bra spel ska ha: det är inte särskilt lätt. Och så är det stort. Men det är en tjusning redan i att som Ecco simma runt och göra höga luftsprång; spelmekaniken fungerar perfekt. Ett av de bästa GG-spelen vi sett!

Le concept est rafraîchissant et original, et la réalisation exceptionnelle. Un grand jeu !

Thankfully the game still manages to feel like an Ecco game. You'll still be swimming around solving puzzles, collecting crystals, and pushing around loose rocks. You still need to go up for air every so often (giving the game a sense of urgency you don't normally see in a game of this type). It's still you on a quest to save the rest of your pod from ... aliens? Okay, ignore the ridiculousness of the story; this really is a worthwhile game that translates amazingly well on the Game Gear.
Ecco ist ein wunderbares, friedliches und sehr hübsch aussehendes Game Gear Spiel. Allerdings werden viele actionverwöhnte Gamer hier etwas die Abwechslung vermissen, weshalb manch ein Zocker binnen kürztester Zeit lieber wieder das Schwert umschnallen wird. Wer jedoch ausreichend Geduld und Interesse mitbringt, wird mit 24 hübschen Unterwasserwelten belohnt werden...

Despite all it's attributes and political correctness, Ecco the Dolphin is not for everyone. Gamers who like lot's of variety and intense action will be disenchanted with Ecco's slow and repetitive gameplay. What's intellectually stimulating to some players will be boring to others. For fans of Ecco, though, he's still the king of the sea.

Wer nicht unbedingt die pralle Action will und ein Spiel mit richtig guter, atmosphärischer Grafik nicht verschmäht, der sollte aber unbedingt mal "probeflippern".
