Conclusion: What is new is very good, sadly the new material is in fairly short supply in Pac-Man World 3 . The new powers are a welcome change but in the end each and every level feels like it could have been ripped from one of the game’s predecessors. For those who enjoyed the previous iteration then there’s probably a few hours of fun to be had, granted it will all feel very familiar.
Excerpt: Sharks have survived for hundreds of millions of years because they are such powerful and efficient killing machines. However, if the real things were anything like the clumsy, awkward shark in the game Jaws Unleashed, sharks would have been relegated to a small layer in the fossil record a long, long time ago.
Excerpt: Pac-Man World 3, for anyone that hasn't been following the Pac-Man World games, is the third game in the 3D platforming series, which sees Pac-Man jumping around, chomping pills and tackling ghosts. While modern platformers seem to be moving further and further away from their roots, Pac-Man World 3 is very much a traditional 3D platformer, designed to be a fun and simple experience for kids.

Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Jaws Unleashed is not a good game, but it still comes with a teeny-tiny recommendation. Borrow it for a day and just muck about - it's the (only) way to have fun with this one. Maybe with more focus this could have turned out alright, but as it is, Jaws Unleashed falls firmly into the Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee realm of guilty pleasure.
Conclusion: And even though that film might be the worst underwater wreck since the Titanic, Jaws: Unleashed swims right beside it. It provides roughly fifteen minutes of absolutely gruesome, chaotic pleasure, then promptly nosedives into the Mariana Trench of bad design, bad graphics and bad control. Show me the way to go home.
Pros: Great White sharks rule, Absolutely brutal
Cons: Absolutely boring, Bad, confusing mission design, Zero A.I., Lame graphics, HE SHOOTS BARRELS OUT OF HIS MOUTH.
Excerpt: We’re gonna need a better game… Bears might prefer bipolars and tigers may have a taste for magicians , but Great White sharks will pretty much eat anything. Though there has been plenty of research indicating that the mammoth predators don’t attack indiscriminately, such science isn’t taking into account the fact that science is meaningless when faced with a 20 foot-long eating machine. And I don’t mean this .
Pros: Great White sharks rule, Absolutely brutal, Absolutely boring, Bad, confusing mission design, Zero A.I., Lame graphics, HE SHOOTS BARRELS OUT OF HIS MOUTH.
Excerpt: There’s been a recent uprising of classic films being given the video game go-ahead. The Godfather, Reservoir Dogs, Scarface…..the publishers saw new life for the licenses in the powerhouse video game industry. While these titles and what they represent are admirable efforts, none have particularly succeeded in capturing the magic of the source material, nor succeeded in being particularly good gaming experiences.
