IGN reviewer Hilary Goldstein gave the Xbox Live Arcade version of Sea Life Safari a savage 4.5/10 review, stating, "Sea Life Safari could have been a decent offering for children, but it falls short in far too many areas -- it's not educational, the photo analysis is inaccurate and it's not very fun."[5] Team Xbox reviewer Andy Eddy was more kind, scoring the game an 8.1/10 and praising the presentation which "[is] a good feel for what it’s like to be underwater—though not too photorealistic to make it dull and boring for the little ones".[6]

As of June 18, 2008 the title holds a 58% average review score on review aggregator website Game Rankings[3] and 55% on Metacritic.[4]
