    Unlike Batman, however, Tarzan has awesome control, good camera angles, and excellent gameplay.
  2. 70
    A good game for kids. Since that's the target for this title, then it gets higher marks than it would otherwise.
  3. 64
    Visually, it does Disney's Tarzan justice. Unfortunately, Ubi Soft's final product is simply too short and shallow to justify a purchase for most gamers.
  4. 63
    It leaves competent gamers feeling underwhelmed. It is worth a look for the younger crowd, though.
  5. 62
    Rather short. It only takes a couple of hours to finish the entire quest and a few more after that to collect all the film reels.
  6. 52
    It is in essence, a very generic experience, which is shallow and unrewarding.
  7. 60
    As a guilty pleasure, Tarzan Untamed is actually addictive and fun with some fantastic graphics and incredible sound effects, but the underlying game is rather weak.
  8. 40
    Mildly entertaining, though often frustrating.
  9. 42
    Although Tarzan looks like a free-roaming 3D platformer in pictures, you actually navigate extremely narrow paths. Sometimes only one exact line will allow you to complete the level.

  12. This game took me less than two hours, as a pose to "Resident Evil’s" 18 hours, first time round.

  18. It’s fun to play through, but I’d like to see a more complex trick system. [Jan 2002, p.130]

    If you only buy one game for the rest of your life, this is the one. Tarzan is the best game ever released, and probably ever to be released, unless they come up with a sequel. We can only hope. Full Review »
