Empress of the Deep 2: Song of the Blue Whale
Most relaxing entertainment
If you desire an HOG that is filled with eye candy graphics, wonderful music and sound effects, with enough challenge to be interesting while not overly taxing your brain buy it apropos you will have something like a good movie to just relax and enjoy. This is it. Great story that pulls you into the game. I enjoyed playing with my daughter. It has a sound reminiscent of the titanic sinking. You hear it once and you do not forget it. My daughter knows when this game is being played even if she does not see it. Unique!

What a Fabulous Game - If Only It Were Real
I can't say enough good things about this game. It was beautifully done - from the excellent user interface, superb graphics, lovely sound and music to great characters and an ending that I wish could be real. The puzzles were not too demanding, and the HOS were well done with beautiful graphics. The voice of the blue whale was perfect - reminded me of Dumbledore in Harry Potter. I play many games and don't mind those with an element of horror. However, this game was a welcome relief from those and leaves the gamer with an upbeat feeling. Truly enjoyable!

MY NEW FAVORITE
This is now my favorite game. It doesn't tax your brain, but is just a relaxing, fun game without all the dark atmosphere of a lot of games.
The graphics are excellent, the storyline interesting and logical, and the navigation through the game relatively straightforward. I particularly like the fact that you are told when you are finished with a given area, so there is no question about whether you need to come back for something else. The Hint button worked both in and out of the HOS and was very informative with specific instructions.
There is no choice of difficulty level and the mini games were not that challenging. The HOS were fairly easy except for maybe one item here or there. I only had to refer to the walkthrough (which I did not find on the Big Fish Games web site) once. It could have been longer, which is related to the fact that it is a very enjoyable game. Now I will go back and play the first installment of this series.

This is my first review. I was compelled to write this after playing this game. It goes on my top 5 game list. Its not what I normally go for but got it as a DD. I was impressed by the graphics, VO, HO's, puzzles, story, everything. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will replay often. Now I'm spoiled as new games seem inferior and frankly boring after playing this game. I'm getting part 1.
BF please take notice. This is a model of a quality game gamers are looking for.

Best HOG Ive played
This is by far THE best game I have played. Graphics are superior. Challenge level perfect for me, Story line is classic, save somthing/someone. but the graphics make it exciting. I played the trial and now I will buy. Thanks Bigfish for The trial plays, Helps me sort what I want from what I don;t want.HOG lovers get this one.

So happy to see that there still are some game developers that care about true quality. This game is one of those rare games that actually makes you feel something. Even the HOG scenes didn't irritate me. If you want to "escape" for awhile into a feel-good, strange and beautiful world, this is the game.
