    It's visually murky at best - sometimes it's difficult to make out what's happening or to find key items. [Feb 2006, p.97]

    You don't get to rampage in the city, you don't get to climb the building, you don't get to fight off planes ... you don't even get to enjoy the change in visuals after playing 17 stupidly-short levels that all looked the same.
  3. This poor excuse of a first-person shooter is so bad that other developers should study it and use it as a guide for what to avoid when putting together similar games in the future.

    Boring as hell and offering zero merits to its credit, Peter Jackson's King Kong is a complete letdown for the Nintendo DS. If Kong were actually around and played this game, he'd jump off the Empire State Building than tolerate another minute of this monkey poop.
  5. 10
    Borderline unplayable thanks to its horrid graphics, and the gameplay does nothing to inspire anyone to even attempt to persevere through its short yet inexplicably dull set pieces.

    When I bought this I thought, "The console versions of King Kong are good, so won't this one be good too?" Boy was I wrong. This game sucks.When I bought this I thought, "The console versions of King Kong are good, so won't this one be good too?" Boy was I wrong. This game sucks. Sure, the things you do in it sound like fun in theory. In execution, they developers totally failed though. Stay far away, Kong fans. Full Review »
