  1. An excellent action game. Or is it strategy? Or perhaps action-strategy? Whatever it is, it is damn fun.
  2. Game Informer
    Features some of the greatest cutscenes in video game history, giving Conker a run for its money as the funniest game ever. [Dec 2001, p.88]

    Whatever the designers' intentions, the music is well done and a perfect companion when you catch one of those vistas I told you about.

    In the PS2 version, the game’s depraved humor is intact, and the gameplay is still a refreshing variety of action and strategy, though the RTS aspects of the base-building missions have been simplified.
  5. What could have been in the top ten games of the year has been brought down by dropping frame rates, repetitive gameplay, and agonizing load times.
  6. One of the PS2's most likable, most offbeat shooters.
  7. 84
    Utterly clever, entertaining, and action-packed, Giants is an absorbing romp through the lives of well-rounded comedic entities on a weird alien land.
  8. The huge amount of variety, great storyline, and intuitive gameplay makes this game one that fans of just about every genre should check out.
  9. What separates Giants from other games is that there are so many things to do - but you have to have some backbone to stick with it.
  10. 80
    If you want a good action game for the PS2, Giants won't let you down. If you want a rare, genuine, and hilarious game to suck up about 20 hours of your time, this game has your name all over it.
  11. Next Generation Magazine
    Delighting and mystifying in equal parts. [Jan 2002, p.81]
