This is a lovely game. If you love the ocean as much as I do or at least are fascinated by it, if you enjoyed Subnautica, Abzu, etc. I am sure you will enjoy Beyond Blue just as much. It is more of an informational game to be fair and has a very simple story (following a whale pod around) but that does not make it any less interesting. Swimming around in the under water areas is so fascinating, the variety of maps and animals. I loved playing the game and will definitely spend more hours on it in the future. With achievement hunting and scanning everything in the game, it only took me slightly over 4 hours to complete it, even less when not counting the handful of videos included in the game. Maybe get it on sale :)

Relaxing casual game focusing on exploration (Scan all the fishies!) and education (includes a documentary, delivered via byte-sized video clips that unlock as the game progresses). It's rather short with ~5 hours needed to see everything and reach 100% completion. You also get to spend some time on your sub between dives, though there isn't much to do besides listening to your music playlist, looking at all the sea creatures you've unlocked so far and eventually making a few calls to colleagues / family. I thought Mirai's banter with her science peers was done well enough, but the family stuff felt a bit tacked on and unfinished. Apart from that, everything is delivered with superb voice acting - if you don't look at the cast, you might even get flashbacks to a certain space station. i didn't encounter any bugs while playing besides Mirai clipping into her seat on the sub at one time. Played with Proton 7.x (GE-Version) on LInux, no performance issues or video playback problems.

Solid choice if you want to relax after hardwork day

Very calm, relaxing game to play. Today many games, especially multiplayer games, have very high pace, with lots of tryharding, minmaxing. This one is totally different. I really enjoy playing this game for 2-3h after work with a glass of wine. The story is also compeling. Save the oceans and all life that lives in it.

If you like the idea of swimming underwater indefinitely and seeing the plethora of animals, without the drawback of the dangers then look no further. With a storyline to give you a reason to go places rather than just exploring for the sake of it, makes the game more than just a relaxing time sink. My only criticism is that for the sake of interactivity, you have to manually scan to discover rather than just look at the animals interest

Enjoyable and educational

A gentle underwater game, no taxing puzzles or control complications to get used to - with an educational approach, learning about underwater science and its biology.

Very pretty to look at all the marine life. Story feels simple and just kind of there, but the animals are all well animated and very nice to look at, which is what I wanted the game for.
