    Comes off as an uneven experience, but one with plenty of invigorating moments that make the whole thing feel worth it.

    King Kong is perhaps a redefinition of the cinematic videogame – entirely based on peaks and troughs of excitement, and devoid of any sense of choice. Just like a movie, but interactive. [Christmas 2005, p.98]
  3. With a rather abrupt final sequence it does seem to rush to its climax, but despite its brevity, this is an unforgettable trip through the realm of Kong.
  4. Beautiful but muddy environments, frustrating puzzles, repetitious opponents and clunky Kong controls.

The game itself is very scary at some points, something I liked here and you get the feeling of survival mode as you go through these interesting ways to escape from Skull Island. The enemies is fun to defeat and challenging aswell. In every aspect, the game is very balanced in many forms, which makes it fun just to play it further. Full Review »

The natives were scary and so were the giant bats and don't even get me started on the giant millipedes! This is the first FPS game I've ever played. The music was great and playing as Kong was very fun, especially in New York City. Full Review »
