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: 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: 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.
Standing with Riddick as one of the best movie tie-in's available!

Summary: Much of the community is undoubtedly prejudice to adaptations, whether that be game to movie, or in this case, movie to game. Although many would argue that most film to game adaptations are cash-ins with little to offer, King Kong, Michel Ancel's latest epic, is neither of these. Michel Ancel is well known for Rayman aswell as Beyond Good & Evil, so it comes as no shock that King Kong delivers. But nothing could have prepared me for this experience......
Summary: I am playing this on my non-360 XBOX,and it looks gorgeous. I am anxious to see if all the hype about the 360 is true. I will have to wait because the prices are still too high for the initial offering. However,360 or no 360,this game rocks. Yes the graphics are beautiful,and sometimes creepy;and yes,the soundtrack and ambient noises are perfect.But the game play is really sweet.
Summary: King Kong! A thought of a Giant Gorilla, a Ship with explorers.. King Kong plays as you set the ship abound for the island. You have machine guns, but you also use branches and hiding. King Kong has a replay value because, you play as the explorers and sometimes as King Kong Lot's to do in the game. The moves are plenty cool and fun to pull off. finding where to go can be the best challenge.
Summary: This was a purchase for my 10yr old son who loved the movie and wanted the game. He has played it relentlessly since and has not completed it yet. He loves it and thinks the graphics are good for an older game. It came on time and in the good condition as prescribed so very pleased.
Summary: Simply the best game I have played on the Xbox. Ok, so it is quite short, but the gameplay is fantastic. There are puzzles and trickier bits when playing as Jack, but the real highlight of the game is the awesome power of Kong - never mind that these sections are pretty simple. Totally satisfying.
