Summary: So… have you ever wanted to be a cardboard shark hellbent on taking down “the man” and all his dirty, environment-destroying machines? Yeah it’s not something I ever really thought about either, but it sounds pretty freakin’ badass. Then again, I’m a man easily won over by creativity and style.
Summary: Derrick is a shark, and not a very happy one at that. Humans are ruining the ocean, mining for oil, storing nuclear waste and floating large flaming tyres above it. All the things that humans do. They have also kidnapped Derrick’s parents and turned them into shark soup, right in front of his eyes.
Summary: Derrick is a shark. And like many sharks, he has an appetite that's never satisfied. But while the sharks of the real world won't flop over and die if they miss a meal, Derrick's life hangs by a thread with each missed mouthful.
Excerpt: At first it seems that the basic premise of Derrick The Deathfin is to rush from the start of the level to the end and, well, that’s pretty much it, and my first moments with the game were disappointing.
Pros: Beautiful presentation and design., Cheap and cheerful., Extremely addictive.
Cons: Can be very, very frustrating., No online features., Constantly squeaking enemies are annoying.
Summary: Au final, sans être à la hauteur des jeux qui lui ont servi de modèle, Derrick the Deathfin réussit une belle performance et nous propose une aventure sympathique. Dommage que sa durée de vie ne soit pas plus importante et qu’elle puisse dissuader certains acheteurs de plonger dans son univers...
