Ecco The Dolphin

Why is a game about dolphins so difficult?

It looks so great, though! Fast dolphin swimming, foreboding Genesis synth soundtrack, jumps and sonar blasting... this game is very unique and pretty badass. It's probably technically more of a puzzle game than an action game, so lots of folks were fooled into picking this up thinking they could just cruise around the ocean and blast sharks with sonar or whatever but really you had to solve tough and non-intuitive puzzles to find crystals, rescue other dolphins, and... travel to the future or space to fight aliens or something? This thing is wild.

Oh, I get it! It's because dolphins are so smart, so the game makers think players are some kind of super geniuses! Hint: They aren't.
