  • Summary: In the murky depths of the ocean, the fate of Reef City lies in the fins of one little fish--at least that's what he wants you to think. Dive into the underwater metropolis of Shark Tale and play as Oscar, a fast-talking fish whose little fib gets him into big trouble. Based on DreamWorks' animated film, Shark Tale features 25 missions that will have you exploring Reef City, racing through the coral, fighting Fish Fu and great white sharks, and dancing to the sounds of hip-hop tracks.

  1. If you loved the movie, enjoy funky retro dance music and contemporary hip hop, and want to experience some of the best computer generated undersea graphics to ever grace the GameCube, take Shark Tale for a swim.
  2. Instead of a linear adventure, the game mixes different styles of gameplay into unrelated missions and while strange on paper, the gameplay works surprisingly well.
  3. Yes, it's a little on the easy side, but it's the perfect game for those of us who need a break from incredibly hard games that make us sweat. If you couldn't get enough of the film, Shark Tale for the Gamecube is a necessary purchase.
  4. It brings some fresh ideas to the table and it's very polished.
  5. I wouldn’t say it’s bad, but it certainly is mediocre on every level except the graphics. If you and your kid enjoyed the movie, then chances are you’ll enjoy this game.
  6. Graphics (especially on Xbox) are sharp and colorful, the characters and areas from the movie are represented well, and the licensed songs are far more impressive than most similar fare. [Dec 2004, p.168]
  7. Graphics that look like they're straight out of the Shark Tale film and a tidal wave of activities, such as racing and item searching, make Activision's movie adaptation a whale of a good time, especially for young players. [Nov 2004, p.130]

    Shark Tale can be pretty boring and repetitive game that is harder to stomach than the Shark Tale movie. It is pretty fun for a little while but it is in existence to mostly entertain little kids. Expand
