    It's not one of those games you'll play forever, but I suspect that for many it will be one of those games that sits on the shelf so that any time you're feeling particularly evil or you've just had a bad day, you'll load it up and go eat some people.

    Brilliant, human-chewing fun if you like lots of blood and dismembered bodies, with some puzzle-led misiony stuff thrown in. [Feb 2007, p.67]

    For the price, though, it's bloody fun. [Feb. 2007, p.72]
  4. Far from an Editor's Choice game, but it's still fun just for the novelty of it all. Don't set your expectations too high and you won't be disappointed.

    The good part of all this is, the game is very rarely boring. What's happening onscreen is always dumb, sometimes infuriating and often crap, but there's always something happening. [Feb 2007, p.72]

  7. Sadly, much of the novelty wore off soon after and the rest of the game left me, just like many in the film, dead in the water.

    In the spirit of generosity, we'll offer that there's about 30 minutes of entertainment to be had. Any fan of "Grand Theft Auto"'s goofy violence will grin as the shark tears people limb from limb. Hours of doing that and little else for hours, however, will dull the enthusiasm of even the most bloodthirsty gamer.

    With the exceptions of deplorably bad cutscenes and haphazard signposting, there are few significant flaws here that a steadier gestation couldn’t have resolved. [Aug 2006, p.90]
  10. Jaws Unleashed was a truly awful game on consoles, and it's no better six months later on the PC.
  11. The aforementioned camera and perspective problems are the worst, but the "hunger meter" seems to fill up and dissipate so arbitrarily that you never know what your stomach needs.

    I fail to see why this got such low scores. It's perfect, the graphics are so cheesy it's great! My computer has been screamingI fail to see why this got such low scores. It's perfect, the graphics are so cheesy it's great! My computer has been screaming for something other that a F.P.S. (First Person Shooter) with high detail gore. This is what I needed, a T.P.E. (Third Person Eater) L.O.L. (Laugh Out Loud) Thanks "Majesco Entertainment" and "Appaloosa Interactive". Full Review »

    The game, I personely think, has all the attributes of jaws the origanal and being the ocean going predator is fantastic. No flaws as i could The game, I personely think, has all the attributes of jaws the origanal and being the ocean going predator is fantastic. No flaws as i could see, people keep going on about the dodgy camera but i personely favour it to manuel camera and the controls are easy to use and quick to get the hang of. Full Review »
