Even the Ocean is a puzzle platformer with Ikaruga-esque gameplay. The puzzles become more demanding as the campaign progresses, but you don't despair of them. Thus the frustration factor is relatively low. The bouncing itself is a lot of fun and you quickly get into a good flow. The soundrack is rather melancholic and atmospheric. The dialogues in the game are very special and pick up topics that are neglected in many other games. That's why one or the other might not like the part so much. All in all a beautiful game and really worthwhile.
