I loved playing Ecco when I was a kid! :D I would play it all the time and then beaten the game over and over. It's one of the hardest games I played though.

I loved it too, but thanks to a looping bug got stuck on a level which I kept passing and returning to the beginning :saddummy:

How your game have a looping bug? My game never had any bugs. The only thing that is unusual is when I was trying to get Ecco over the beach for some reason in "Pearls of Coral reef" and then suddenly got Ecco stuck in the wall above water and can't get out. Half of his body is outside of the level.

I dunno, but it did happen :/ Plus, there was a whole level through a tunnel I somehow passed through outside the tunnel, in the middle of a blue nowhere x) I think that one game in particular wasn't in such a great shape ^^;

Myabe. Does it have any scratches or smudges on the back of the disk?  If it is, then that might be the problem.

Yep. The game isn't originally mine anyways, so who knows what it's been through ^^;

That what happens when you get a used game. You don't know what it went through. ^^; I have a PS1 game that I had for years and it got really messed up when the ply station fell onto the floor. The audio doesn't work in some places, it gets into endless loops in a few places, and spots where the game freezes. Be glad that your game has only one issue instead of many.

Astounding! Are you sure you didn't kick the playstation because the games, you know... THE HARDEST EVER! I beat that game and I was elated! I need to beat it again!

Ditto to that! I have a friend who tells a story about reserving a copy at her local game store months in advance of the release date... and collecting quite a few strange looks because of it. She didn't care, and neither would I. The game is beautifully made, and just knowing how much conceptual research went into it... ugh, it's a dolphin-loving nerd's dream!

I ran into the game completely by chance at a friend's house, and loved it just for the cover lol xD
And once I tried it, love at first sight. I couldn't finish it, though, and that still bothers me a great deal ;_;

Found my copy by chance at a game exchange, looking for a DreamCast for my roommate (she had a game, but no platform). Same here, love at first sight! Hope you can finish the game; it's a pretty good ending.

Heh. I remember when I first got DOTF. I've always loved Dolphins (Seriously, when I was 5 I wanted to be a Marine Biologist. Still do of course!) forever! One day I was running amuck with my Dad in the game isle, back when the game was brand new, and saw the cover of Ecco! When I saw a game with a Dolphin I just had to have it! I begged my Dad for it and he bought it for me. I was 6 or 7ish, so I had no idea what I was getting myself into! Took the game home, popped it in my PS2 and started playing.... Aquamarine Bay was nice, yet when I reached Perils of The Coral Reef I was to terrified to fight the Great White. But I watched the Demos after the Title screen sat for a while and saw Hanging Waters! Still to cowardice to get past level 2! Dismayed, I left the game for 9 years... Then, when I was 16, I had newfound determination and courage! I set out to beat the game, and after a rather long time, I did! I was elated! Giddy with joy! I still have Ecco! Never will give him up! It's my favourite game ever - even though it is the hardest ever too... and someday I will beat it again! And again....

I love Ecco!
