Besides the novelty of being able to tear up New York City as the titular great ape, the game adaptation of the King Kong movie now has another draw. Ubisoft has announced that Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie contains an alternate ending to its filmic inspiration, "in which players can save the giant ape from his cinematic death, pilot an airplane, and discover Kong back home on his native Skull Island." Players who finish the game and then earn 250,000 points while replaying it will be able to access the alternate ending. Ubisoft did not say which versions of the multiplatform game had the ending. Surprisingly, the alternate conclusion was made with director Jackson's express blessing. "I wanted the game to be able to take the audience a bit further than what the film could," said Jackson.
i couldnt be bothered getting all the points so i just used the cheat, but every time kong dies, it just restarts from the top of the building! anyone else had this prob?
it's really not that many points, it takes an extra hour or so of playing to get that many points, besides you can pick your favorite levels to replay, and the game is fun. too bad there isn't any multiplayer.
Give me a break to those that complain this new ending somehow destroys "the moral of the story". You already know the ending, its been around for 70+ years, so why not give a little kick in the pants? Don't you think that would be.....(shock) fun....as in fun=games. Sometimes we gamers are too serious. These are games, not art.
Its a good game at least rent it. Not the best of the year, but it has some great suspense and it actually at times is better than the movie.
Well at least it gives it more replay value, Im currently playing this title whenever i get tired of playing condemned and NBA2K6. So right now the cycle value of playing this game might increase :)
Awsome I really enjoyed playing this game on my 360 it is an AWSOME experience it really surprised me. This makes it even better
That's pretty kool. I'd make a guess that the alternate ending is in the Xbox 360 and PC versions if not all of them.
conkersbat, it's not the actual ending to Kong. Don't quite know if this is spoilers, but really, Kong dies. Oh, and this is old news for me. I got th ending before it was even announced.
If this is true, cool, but it should be for all systems not just one. That would be unfair to the others. If it had to choose we all know it would be for the 360 just because its more expensive then the others.
I cant believe you are actually flaming peter jackson for making an EXTRA alternate ending. Its not the main ending, its an unlockable, an EXTRA! Yeah, I am sure Peter Jackson is humbled and ashamed by your comment. You know all about directing, not him, hes a sucka. I thought this game was extremely well done and i love the extra touches. Like for instance has anyone checked out the concept art? If not I wont spoil it but the put a nice little added touch on it. Lets just say you arent just viewing it like a slideshow (I was playing the 360 version, so I am not sure but I assume that its the same for the xbox/ps2 version)
1.The ending on Star wars epsiode 3 was crap.It didnt really make sense to me,ONLY getting ben Kenobi and darth vader after it... 2.This sounds weird.COME ON JACKSON!READY FOR A KING KONG LIVES GAME ANY TIME! 3.three points just seemed to fit the moment
i unlocked it on gamecube 2 days ago, real easy to get, actually real easy game in general, beat it in 2 days. Good Though. Worth a rent, or even a buy if you really want too
Agreed Val-X. I mean, we've ALL seen the old, old, old clip of Kong at the top of the Empire State Building. Gee, does he climb down and walk home? Signs point to no.
So they took a classic movie with a great moral to it, and turned it into a feel-good ending where the monkey goes home. You've got to be kidding me. Peter, I expect more from you.
after beating the game once you can go back to levels and obtain high scores and after getting 250,000 you get alternate ending.
And this time it's Peter Jackson (who's travelled back in time to sort you out, and make a film) so... you eat him and then the credits role.
Kong flying a plane? Nothing! The super secret ending (which you can only access by gaining a billion points) is much cooler. You get to marry the hot chick, turn into a prince then go back in time (in a time machine) and stop the evil movie director from showing up on your island and ruining your party. the only downside to this is that when you do it changes everything and you turn back into an ape and you have to settle for ugly natives...
no one knew? ive known 4 a while now. good ending but not worth getting all those points and repleaying it
Has any1 unlocked it? heres hoping it's available on P.C ver. Hopefully not as rubbish as star wars ep.3 alternate ending...
