Excerpt: Survivalist Bear Grylls’ Discovery Channel TV show Man vs. Wild — which sends him trekking through a different inhospitable wilderness in each episode — actually sounds like a great idea for a game.
Pros: + Offers a decent variety of challenges across a decent set of environments.
Cons: - Minigames are more tedious than fun; proliferation of quick-time events over actual gameplay., - Outdated graphics; repetitive music., ? Will we ever see a good reality-TV tie-in game?
Conclusion: The game will take about 5 hours to complete and I would say about 10 hours to obtain 1000/1000. Overall I was shocked at how NOT crap this game was, so I give it 4 stars and suggest you try it out. Rent it, dont buy it, unless you can get it for $10 or so.
Conclusion: Man vs. Wild is a bad attempt to try and make a few extra bucks off a television show that gets millions of viewers. Just stop and ask yourself this. Would you really have fun playing this game? The answer should be yes, trust me on this one. Skip Man vs. Wild at all costs.
