    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. Expand

    This is unlike any FPS I've ever played, the action is brilliant and completing tasks is satisfying. The biggest difference is that there are no things on the screen ( unless you change the options) which makes you feel more in the jungle.

    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 PS2Despite slight improvements in the graphics department and sound; the PC version of King Kong offers little more than the PS2 version.

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. Expand

    King Kong is a must! filled with memorable character, excellent voice acting and complex level design. Your set out for an edgy adventure. And one worth the admission fee.

  1. 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.
  2. Certain aspects of the game work brilliantly although (such as the ecology) with the world of Skull Island coming to life quite naturally. It does tend to drag a bit in places and the pacing can be less than consistant but overall its a good title.
  3. It isn't quite as impressive looking as its console counterparts, and it's a short ride, but there's still a great time to be had with King Kong on the PC.
