The GoodEcco the Dolphin (1992) is something of a cult classic video game that people tend to love or hate. The humble dolphin must explore the vast ocean where he will battle (as well as aid) sea creatures and H. R. Giger inspired space aliens, solve difficult puzzles and unlock ancient secrets. The Sega CD version features some incredible music that is probably some of the best tunes associated with a video game. This, along with the great animation, graphic, game play and storyline found in the Sega Genesis cartridge version makes this game a classic.
The BadThe Sega CD features some incredible music that has to be heard to be fully appreciated. However, the game's graphics are still done under the 64 on-screen colors (out of 512) and their are only a few other additions to the CD version. This game is very hard and will require a tremendous amount of patience, precious timing and interest in science fiction, puzzle solving and philosophy. Many games have tried to mix arcade action with more intellectual, graphic adventuring and come up short. This game succeeds where most failed, but gamers need to be aware of what they are getting themselves into.
