Summary: We're not sure what took so long for Tokyo Jungle to be localized ( we first played it at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show ), but it's finally here and it's every bit as silly and hilarious as we had hoped it would be. This action/survival game, set in post-apocalyptic Tokyo, stars all the animals that survived when the humans disappeared, with a fuzzy little Pomeranian puppy being the game's banner character.
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. The game is based on this fictional world where humanity has vanished and the animals have taken over the cities - in this case Tokyo.
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.
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 . What was once a full priced retail title in Japan has come to the West as a $15 downloadable game.
Excerpt: Japan likes to keep a lot of "gems" to themselves, and as a result, we end up missing out on a lot of quirky titles that definitely have an audience here in the States. It was exciting news that Tokyo Jungle , the post apocalyptic animal survival game, was not only going to be available to download here in the US, but at a significantly discounted price, being a full priced retail game in Japan. What is Tokyo Jungle exactly?
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. The disappearance of humans has allowed nature to creep in and take back over the streets of Tokyo, and now, anything from your domesticated dogs and pigs to fierce jungle cats and elephants roam the streets of this...
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? No, it's Tokyo Jungle.The main arcade-like survival mode in Tokyo Jungle tasks you with picking an animal and staying alive as long as you possibly can.
