  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. 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.
  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.

    Despite slight improvements in the graphics department and sound; the PC version of King Kong offers little more than the PS2 version. Nevertheless, on with the actual game. If there was ever an award for Best Movie tie-in game, then this tightly plotted epic would no doubt be on top. Though the graphics aren't likely to push your PC to boiling point, they run a lot smoother than the PS2 version. The sound is also even more brilliant on the PC (I'm not sure if this may be down to the wire between my PS2 and the sound system, but either way the sound seems better). For everything else about this game, refer to my PS2 review. Full Review »

    A very original experience which was refreshing in this age of WWII and other common themes of FPS especially. The graphics are beautiful, the creatures imaginative, the action heart pounding and the variety is engaging. There was a lot of opportunity to play Kong sprinkled through the game so I'm not sure what others are saying. It was linear, but it did what it was intended to do. It wasn't supposed to be a game where the environment was wide open. It is a game where you are placed on a path leading to successive missions/situations/confrontations which lead to an end. During that time, the experience is very fun while you fight giant millipedes, dinosaurs and other savage creatures which act and look simply amazing. It also balanced nicely with opportunities to fight as Kong. This game is much like a great roller coaster. It stays on the track while giving you a crazy ride. Full Review »
