    I realy liked this game. somehow it was addicting to me. one of the best games i've played that was based on a movie. (although i hated the strange creatures that would jump at you and scare the crap out of you.)

    This is the best game i've played on ps2 back when i was little. There was hardly any game to enjoy playing on old consoles but this one was just amazing :D - Unique style combat with kong i still play the game to this day. Would love a remastered version along with a new mode where you can choose your arena and enemies to fight whether you're jack or kong. I'd love to take on four v-rex'sThis is the best game i've played on ps2 back when i was little.

Would love a remastered version along with a new mode where you can choose your arena and enemies to fight whether you're jack or kong. I'd love to take on four v-rex's at once with kong. Please have a remaster!!!!!!!! A lot of money would be made with a simple remaster and the graphics will already be amazing as the xbox 360 version had amazing graphics. Expand

  1. A stunningly atmospheric action-adventure that makes all the right moves. It is intense, scary, exhilarating and pure joy to play. One of the best games so far this year. [Nov 2005]
  2. King Kong is at once purely simple and utterly unique, showcasing bifurcated gameplay and an instinctual theme of survival. [Holiday 2005, p.62]
  3. 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.
