What is with me and these Ecco games? I did the 2 difficult games which are Ecco the Dolphin & Ecco the Tides of Time, and now... I end up doing Ecco the Dolphin: Defender of the Future for the Playstation 2... what are the odds...
Ecco Defender of the Future was mainly released for the Sega Dreamcast, and then later it was re-released for the Playstation 2 with some slight changes. There's a Gallery option and there are some slight changes with completing certain levels.
This will be a 100% Playthrough, which will include me finding all the Vitalits and finishing the levels and such, the levels shown in this description if anyone bothers to read it will show what levels I go through, and the Vitalits will be shown at certain time stamps. Some require you to do a side quest to make it appear while others are simple just hidden. Each Vitalit you collect increases your Health slightly, but ONLY for the chapter that you got them in.
Please excuse the deaths if shown in this playthrough, while it may not be as difficult as the 2D Ecco Games, this one still has it fair share of difficulty, but... dying doesn't RESTART YOU BACK AT THE BEGINNING OF THE LEVEL, so that's a plus in my book, thus this is surprisingly my favorite Ecco game than the other 2.
Getting poisoned cripples you greatly by hindering your movement and delaying your charge attacks, also... your health drops overtime, eating a Poisonous Fish somehow cures the poison, but if you eat it while you are not poisoned, you take damage. You can tell if you are poisoned if the Health bar is purple.
