  1. 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.

    Fun game, graphics a bit dissapointing at times. The story still sticks a bit to the film and it is short. The King Kong game is 'too Fun game, graphics a bit dissapointing at times. The story still sticks a bit to the film and it is short. The King Kong game is 'too much to fit onto ds' is what i think. Give it a try. Collapse

    The graphics are bad, the gameplay isn't anything to bragg about and the overall feel to the game is just not up to standards. I got The graphics are bad, the gameplay isn't anything to bragg about and the overall feel to the game is just not up to standards. I got this game as a gift and I just couldn't get hooked by it, you may want to rent it to see for yourself, but I would have to say stay clear of this game. Expand

    Brillant! Easily the best game of all time. I'd be willing to spend my entire life savings on this game if it cost that much and Brillant! Easily the best game of all time.
