I’ll be the first to admit that a virtual fish tank sounds like a terrible idea for a game. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised when I booted up My Aquarium for the first time. It’s actually not a bad little app, but that’s all it is an app, it certainly isn’t what we would traditionally class as a game.
My Aquarium successfully transforms your Wii into a virtual fish tank; it includes all the beauty of owning an aquarium without having to actually look after a living fish (certainly a plus for those of us who aren’t quite responsible enough to be a pet owner). There are almost 50 different fish you can put into your aquarium and a range of different items, including coral and coloured lights, to spice up the place.
My Aquarium is not a game, it’s an aquarium application for your Wii. For 500 Nintendo Points there’s some enjoyment to be had here, if it’s your thing, just don’t expect too much in terms of gameplay.
