The plot of Blue World seems like something out of a movie and may be rather cliched, but some might find it intriguing. To start off, you can choose to be either a male or a female student. You begin your journey in the South Pacific, the Paoul Republic to be exact. You are not there completely for leisure, however, as you are actually a student studying folklore at the republic's local university. Your interest in folklore sparks some specific attention toward the legendary Song of Dragons, which is an enigmatic sound heard deep in oceans across the world.
Eventually you take a hiatus from studying at the university to join the local L&L Diving Service. The service is headed by Jean-Eric Louvier, a former world-renowned ocean explorer in the mold of the real world's Jacques Cousteau. Jean-Eric is not only driven to run his service to make a living, but also to further pursue the truth behind the Song of Dragons, as his son lost his life some 15 years ago in pursing the same information.
Joining the storyline is the aptly named Oceana Louvier, a diver for L&L who is Jean-Eric's granddaughter and also has intentions of finding the truth behind the legend that took her father's life. Along the way you will get help from some secondary characters as you join L&L in their quests, such as the flamboyant diver known as Gaston Grey, and the scientist named Hayako Sakurai, who provides valuable information to the service in regards to the underwater legends. Although it's a bit corny, the storyline does do a good job of keeping things interesting as you progress through the game.
One area of improvement in Blue World over the original release is its locations. Not only are they nicely varied, but they are more expansive, offering more in-depth opportunities for exploration, which is really what the game is all about. This time around you will find yourself venturing into waters all around the globe, with different depths and different locales to conquer.
At one point you will find yourself in the dangerous murky freshwater of Brazil. As a complete contrast, you will also dive into the frigid and lonely Arctic waters off the north coast of Canada. When in the Ciceros Strait of the Aegean Sea, you can expect to see plenty of shipwrecks that give you an eerie feeling when around them. You will also visit other locales such as the Weddell Sea in the Antarctic Ocean and the eye-catching Gatama Atoll that is filled with wildlife.
