    From what i gather from living my life thus far, there are 2 kinds of people in this world. Ones who know how to beat this game, and others who have no idea what to do and just run around collecting 1000 shells, thinking... Read Full Review

    This Game was bad even when I thought all video games was good. I was 8 BTW

    Game Play: This game sucked balls. You ran around on a boat and tried to shoot a fish. Oh by the way this fish is trying to eat you. After 36 levels of this **** you'll be ready to hang your self with the NES controller... Read Full Review

    The first good game made after a movie!

    Jaws is one of the funniest games on the NES. It is very easy to ick up and play, and also easy to understand. The game is about killing the shark of course. The game could have been longer, and had a better last level, ... Read Full Review

    Lacking in all areas, Jaws fails to impress.

    This game is based on the movie with the same name. Usually, when toy-companies decide to throw themselves head first into the gaming industry creating movie-based games and getting licensed by the American wing of Ninte... Read Full Review

    About as much fun as a real swim with Bruce.

    The movie is fantastic, one of my favorites, and I was so excited when I first saw a game was out. Boy, was I disappointed!! The basic premise...riding around in the Orca (Quint's ship) and trying to find Jaws. But ... Read Full Review

    Pretty good NES game.

    I don't own this game, but I have an emulator and played it on such. It was rather fun, not on par with Metroid or Super Mario Bros, but still worth a play. Gameplay: From the beginning, you are on a boat, and set to ... Read Full Review

    Good Movie = Bad Game

    Jaws is a good movie but a horrible game. You start off as a boat with no instructions whatsoever, so it's kind of like a role-playing game because you move up, down, left, and right, so it's already confusing! Sometimes... Read Full Review

    It's Jaws!

    Okay, most movie games aren't good. And there is no doubt about Jaws. The title is the greatest thing in the whole game. Once you start, it is time to head out to sea. Then oh no! You hit something! Then you dive down an... Read Full Review
