Summary: I haven't played this game in ages, but the memories come flooding back to me. I had so much fun with this. Firstly, the humour. It is actually funny. And not in an American (sorry to stereotype you all!) way either. I almost got a hint (just a glimer) or python after catching little squigs (they are squigs arent they!) falling off clifs and then watching them fall to their death made me falling over backwards with laughter.
Excerpt: "Giants - Citizen Kabuto was developed by Planet Moon Studios. The first I heard of this game was from a demo some years back. It was three episodes into the main storyline and the first thing I noticed was how extensive the levels were. For as far as the fog and view range would allow you, there was either terrain or water. The game is based on a series of islands, so the water is quite common. But as you proceed through the levels, you are ...
Pros: Three Sides, Vast Maps, Three - Way Multiplayer, Humour, Base - Building
Summary: This is a very unique game, dont know quite which genre it sits in, but it works very well nonetheless. Its quite old now, but i still install it from time to time to play on it. I buy games regularly, latest titles but i find this one is timeless. The humour in the storyline will have you in pieces at various stages.
Funny ! Funny ! Action ! Funny ! Action ! Great game ! !

Summary: Well where to start,even though it's a few years old graphically it's still a very pretty game. But what really makes the game stand out is the gameplay/story, it easy's you in on your own and as you progress you save your fellow aliens ,which you then can issue orders to ( such as guard,attack etc ) BUT ! that is only part of the game (with out spoiling the plot) you then play as other characters.
Summary: This game has everything for everyone. It gives hours of gaming heaven, the amazing graphics of tropical locations add to the great gameplay. just good old fasioned mayhem as you blow your enemies into dust with a a cool selection of weapons. Also the movies add excellent humour to the game. Believe me for a fiver its the best bargain you will ever come across.
Summary: Fantastic fun and still very impressive looking graphics wise. The humour throughout the game I found genuinely hilarious although perhaps not suitable for the too delicate. The single player game is long and varied and the multiplayer option over LAN with friends is just a great laugh. Hours of entertainment now for under a fiver - nuff said!
Summary: The key to Giants' originality lies in the gameplay variety. You'll play as three distinct races through about 25 hours of total playtime: the futuristic jetpack adorned Meccs, the beautiful rogue Sea Reaper Delphi, and the game's namesake, the colossal Kabuto himself. The Meccs, Delphi, and Kabuto all offer unique gaming experience.

Pros: Different story with wonderful graphics and effects .
Cons: Maybe it hasn't a save section inside the game .
Summary: Giants:Citizen Kabuto is one of those rare games that garners crticial acclaim yet fails to sell through at retail. Every time I visit CEX in London's Tottenham Court Road, there is a stack of Giants games, unsold and unloved. I've owned a copy of the game for months, but it looked a bit weird and sat on my shelf gathering dust. I just got a new video card, a Geforce 2 Ultra, and had heard that Giants was power-hungry so it seemed like a good time to try it out.
Pros: Original, Beautiful, Varied gameplay
Cons: Quite difficult, Needs high-end PC, A bit odd!
