Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that you shouldn't miss this one -- even if you don't see the movie! By guiding Nemo and Marlin, kids explore two spectacular underwater worlds and view clips from the movie.
What's it about?
FINDING NEMO, which tracks the storyline of the Disney/Pixar movie, is in a league of its own. Players follow Nemo, a young clownfish, and his father, Marlin, when they become separated in the Great Barrier Reef. Nemo is captured by a scuba diver and ends up in an aquarium in a dentist's office.
Players switch between two parallel storylines: one under the ocean with Marlin, and the other inside the fish tank with Nemo. Under the ocean, Marlin desperately tries to find Nemo by swimming into unfamiliar waters rife with predators. Inside the dentist office's aquarium, Nemo and his fellow fish scheme to escape. Players collect items, solve problems, and play a series of arcade games that help Nemo and Marlin find each other.
Is it any good?
This software is a terrific way to enhance the movie experience. By guiding Nemo and Marlin, kids explore two spectacular underwater worlds and view clips from the movie. Players interact with a host of hilarious characters including Bruce, the great white shark, who has sworn off eating fish and joined Fish-A-Holics. Don't miss this one!
