Excerpt: Who does not like cute dogs and adorable kittens? Surely, everybody does, but in Tokyo jungle you will see them doing not-so-cute tasks. Tokyo Jungle is a different yet creative game. If I had to define it, I would say is a combat-rpg-strategy game with a little bit of platforming.
Excerpt: Tokyo Jungle definitely has a lot of charm. As odd as the concept for the game is, most of it seems to flow pretty well. The game provides itself with enough challenge, and the plethora of things to unlock is enough to keep someone busy for a long time.
Summary: A solid game that definitely has an audience. Might lack replay value, could be too short or there are some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun. How we score: The Destructoid Reviews Guide
Excerpt: Even though I've been into gaming all my life the differences between the Eastern and Western demographics still astound me sometimes. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the release of Tokyo Jungle .
Excerpt: Tokyo Jungle is a bizarre new title from Sony's Japan Studio. This untraditional title challenges you with surviving an apocalyptic world as an animal rather than human, because as it turns out, all humans have mysteriously disappeared from the city.
Excerpt: Mankind has mysteriously disappeared. Pets are left to fend for themselves, and animals from the zoo have escaped to claim a place on the streets. Chicks battle rabbits! Porcupines war against gazelle! Sheep hunt with wolves! Is this madness?
Conclusion: Concept: Survive in a human-free Tokyo as a plethora of different animals
Graphics: Unimpressive all around, although the animals look like they're supposed to
Sound: Contains a zoo's worth of animal sounds, along with a disparate techno soundtrack
Playability: Controls are basic but functional.
Tokyo Jungle review: It doesn't look triple-A, but it's a totally unique experience
25 July 2012
Summary: On the deserted streets of Tokyo, a fight ensues. On one side, a gang of hissing stray cats; on the other side, a vicious pack of hyenas. And stumbling in on this massive pile-on is you: a cute Pomeranian puppy dressed in a baseball cap and raincoat.
