Ecco Jr.'s definitely for little kids - heck, the manual is part coloring book. But that's great because the original Ecco games were way too tough for younger players. Now even the youngest Ecco fans can go fish.

Ecco Jr. é, sem dúvida, um jogo para crianças - basta olhar o manual no formato de livros para colorir. Mas chega em boa hora para quem não conseguia passar das primeiras fases do original.

Apesar de fácil, continua, como toda a série Ecco, divertido.

Just like what should be expected, it is basically a simplified version of Ecco the Dolphin. I can't complain much though, because it was intended for children. Giving this game a score is quite difficult. The graphics, music, and controls are great. The storyline, gameplay, difficulty, and some other features have been sacrificed to make the game kid-friendly. As an adult, there isn't much replay value, so you'll get about forty minutes of play time out of this one. But, if you have a young kid in the house, definitely consider Ecco Jr. as a good choice. It set out to be a kid's game, and accomplishes that goal very well. I had some fun with it, and you might too. If you can find it cheap, why not pick it up and give it a try?
The Video Game Critic (Sep 12, 2015)
The graphics are certainly up to Ecco standards and with coral formations that appear photo-realistic. The controls are responsive and it's always exhilarating to leap high out of the water. The Ecco series is known for its music, but the soundtrack here is uneven. Some tunes exude an otherworldly quality while others sound like nursery rhymes. The three-character password is handy but there are only about 24 short missions. Seasoned Ecco fans will finish the game in one sitting, but youngsters can probably bump up the grade by a letter.
