Summary: It's nice to see that not only can Peter Jackson make movies, he's also good at collaborating the making of the game based on the movie. I feel that this game didn't get the amount of sales it deserved. It sold respectably, but it could have been so much more in sales. If you passed up buying this game it's understandable why you'd do so.
Summary: To be honest all games based on movie story is sucks, and this one is not exception. The story is just not appropriate to build a game in a top of it, specially for FSP game. Maybe it will be better if it was a 3rd person game. The graphics, is also sucks....its greennish and the envirnoment is all the same all over the game, and there is lack of vivid color like red and orange.
Summary: Jack is the main character you play, and in first person, which makes the game extra cool since you get to see scenery from the movie first hand. The detail put into everything is amazing, from the island and city to the dinosaurs on Skull Island. The T-Rex especially is scary and makes me sweat with fear when it chases me every time, because it is so big and I am so small. The levels of Kong are also fun to play, especially swinging in the jungle.
Summary: This game is farily good, but has some warts. I mean, why are there so many doors that are missing levers? And why are the levers always in bushes? I mean, is Ubisoft trying to make me write a bad review? But, the beasts you encounter as Jack Driscoll are purely imaginative. But, after awhile, the creatures start to repeat. But, all the problems melt away when you play as the ginormus ape himself. There, you can kill giant t-rexs and bats.
Summary: King Kong has many good points. The unobstructed camera view makes you feel like you are in the movie. There's lots of creepy creatures and sounds. The graphics are great. Controls/gameplay are very solid. One of the things however that makes this game old is the repetition of finding levers to unlock doors, and finding fire to burn down grass.
Summary: While this game has some excellent graphics, after a while the scenery gets old. The challenges get redundant as you search for sticks or fire or ammo, or shoot at raptors or big bird things scene after scene (after scene after scene). As Kong, mobility is limited to a single correct path that you have to find.
Summary: So far, I feel like this game is a good blend of being challenging, but easy enough that you can progress through and keep it fun. I have a number of other games that I'm stuck on. There's a balance between being challenging enough, but not so much so that you get tired of trying. Maybe I don't have the time or dedication to commit that some do. So far, I feel like this game is right there.
Summary: that akadude who left a bad review just mad cause he sucks. What he is right is do not waste your money buying it but rent it instead. You can beat it in an long sitting and you constantly kill the same things the hole game. More weapons should have been added into the game and although fun you constantly throw spears and light bushes on fire.
