It looks quite enjoyable for what is. A 5 was too harsh. By GS standards, a 5 indicates there are some significant but bearable glitches. Plus the game did not release for 50-60 dollars. It was ~15-20 bucks, so for the price it seems to deliver what the metacritic has averaged as over the past year-- a 7.5-8. A 5 score either exposes a bad game, or in this case, a bad review.
If this game had more elements other than combat, and if it was more free-roaming rather than side scrolling, plus more suiting music than this could have been a real diamond in the rough.
Bought this game right when it came out and still loving it.
I don't normally care what other sites review, but the guy over at IGN liked it enough to give it an 8.
I wanna see a bear fight a pterodactyl.
And then a kangaroo vs a deer.
And then a walrus vs a monkey.
WTF is wrong with you people. PETA? What PETA has to do with anything. ANimal cruelty is a man agains animal. Animal vs animal is just a cycle of life. Unless PETA also frowns upon lions hunting zebras...
Also, keep a healthy distance guys. It's a game, all crazy ideas are good. Better than making same game (new CoD) every year.
Great review but this is one of the few games that has local co-op and I can play it with my friends and brothers. Can't wait until they upload it on PSN.
Carolyn, who did you offend at Gamespot to have to review this ridiculous game? Next time, see if they will offer a more tolerable punishment like cleaning the bathrooms or eating soap. In any case, thanks for taking one for team so that we all know this is as awful as we thought it would be!
The only thing I am wondering right now is, who was smoking crack when they came up with this concept? Whatever they were puffin on must have been strong...The only thing going through my mind is...What the heck? Seriously, humans have left the world? I quit right there.
Wow, I just clicked on this review to see what the hell it was. Weird, but could've been made a lot better.
i think this games looks piss poor anyway.... but i have to comment....in a world over run by wild animals.... who sheers the sheep, becuase they look pretty fresh in this clip! :P
it looks silly, a caniche against a tiger...a rabbit against a grizzly...I'm kind of against animal cruelty, I wouldn't enjoy playing this game. The graphics look ok but the environment is crappy.This is not a surprise it got a 5
lol what the hellz. stealth animal action? sounds like fun if the mechanics didn't look half arsed and boring as hell..
It was that bad? I mean in our beloved videogame world, trying new ideas often brings you a bunch of savage animals ready to eat you alive. But you have to make the effort anyway since new ideas is what makes the videogame world a constantly stream of emotions. Althrough I agree this one was not exactly a brilliant idea
How do people make these games and get them comissioned, who would want to play it anyway, just some crazy person that likes bloodlust and cant do it in the real world.
Dubstep background music....?
I'm a fan of dubstep.. but seriously? A racing game I could understand.. but Tokyo Jungle!
Start of the review: "This looks great! What a good concept. How bad could it be really?"
End of the review: "...Damn."
@MaxiM_ Once had a discussion with a vegan chick about that topic. Pretty lightheaded girl, might've been the malnutrition, and she really suggested to "train" carnivore animals to become vegan xD I still wait for PeTA to pick this idea up ....
@xolivierx I am against animal cruelty. This is a game, A VIDEO GAME. How the hell do you see this as animal cruelty? What a joke.
@xolivierx LOL U LOL!
@xolivierx "Kind of" against animal cruelty? But not completely? Some animal cruelty is okay?
Seriously? This is the game you are going to target for your blood lust fantasy accusations? There are better targets that won't make your agenda look so rediculous...I mean, even if you are PETA, try Cabella's instead.
It's nice to see somebody take a chance on something new. I hope it sells enough on it's uniqueness to spark a properly funded and produced sequel.
