    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.
  2. The game is fun whether you are playing in small doses or a long sit-down marathon as there is plenty to do, see, and kill along the way. The best part of it all is that it retails for under 30 bucks! That is like a dollar an hour considering that's about how long it will take to find and do everything.

In terms of fun, it's all there. I find it hard to become bored of this game. From devouring every unfortunate swimmer in site, every animal, sinking every boat, and causing great trouble and chaos, it's no wonder one reviewer called it "Grand Shark Auto," because that's basically what it is. From a technical aspect, this game has its share of bugs, none of which are game breaking, but otherwise it's mediocre at best. So, to summarize, this game's story was not fully-realized, and technically it's not a very good game, but even so it's fun, and I suppose that's what's most important. Full Review »

It's just you and **** Bruce, and you can swim around and eat everyone! I mean everyone who gets in your way! Plus other sharks, dolphins, and you can blow up boats, and the missions are, for the most part, fun and challenging. JAWS: UNLEASHED is a fun, addictive, and bloody awesome game! Otherwise, it's just mediocre. There's not a lot of variety, and the graphics are kind of plain, but regardless, it still does what it set out to do- give you "Grand Shark Auto." You are Jaws (or Bruce), and dammit, the dinner bell is ringing, and it's time to eat! So get off your ass and go play the damn game! Full Review »

It glitches often, freezes up, and the graphical quality is not the best, but Jaws Unleashed provides a fun open world environment, where you can attack swimmers, animals, and just about everything else in the water. You can find hidden treasure, go on story adventures, or take on challenges throughout the open ocean. But the best part is getting to play as a great white shark! Full Review »
