  1. There are countless tense moments playing as Jack and my only complaint is not playing as the featured star more than we were given the opportunity.
  2. The lighting effects are truly stunning. The sound is also top-notch. [Feb 2006, p.96]
  3. The production values are amazing with top-notch graphics and sound found nearly everywhere. Though the game runs a little short – we played a little over six hours – you'll have a blast every step of the way.
  4. One of the most enjoyable if short-lived gameplay experiences. The game is practically a work of art, but that may not be enough for everyone.
  5. The most impressive element of the game, though, is Skull Island itself. Grand and gorgeous, the environments never repeat, and the adventure never slackens. [Jan 2006, p.116]

    This game was terrifying. 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 »
