    The control is decent enough for some fun dino hunting, the kind of deep jungle danger that we haven't had much of since the original Turok (and haven't had any of on PSP), but the handling of the story is messy and confusing.
  2. It is most definitely King Kong in the palm of your hand, but the sacrifices and compromises made to get it there ultimately suck away much of its appeal.

    The horribly short lifespan and the bad controls of Kong degrades this title from a must-have to a must-rent.

    A half-hearted attempt to make the game even more ubiquitous than it already is. Very little effort was put into making it a compelling experience in its own right, and thus, you have very little incentive to experience it.

    It is considerably shorter than the console versions and retails for approximately the same price, there is nothing to come back to after the game is finished and unfortunately that will be far sooner than you will wish.

    An ambitious attempt to shoehorn the epic PS2 game into the PSP, ruined by editing, unfriendly controls and gloomy graphics. [Feb 2006, p.98]

The graphics have some flaws, but the cinematic mystique of the environments is very well done. Playing as Kong is not nearly as engaging as Jack, and one major and frankly unbelievable oversight is the final level on the Empire State Building. This should have been the hardest and most intense game play of all, but instead is not even game play really but a stupid cinematic throwaway! Full Review »

King Kong made a good point about stereo typing monkeys which saddly is missing in this game. I think I'll get the GBA version of this game. Full Review »

    I thought this game was pretty good. The best parts were the graphics and the sound. The graphics were amazing with good textures (where most I thought this game was pretty good. The best parts were the graphics and the sound. The graphics were amazing with good textures (where most PSP games fail). The models were highly detailed. The sound is great too, the voice acting was great. The Sound FX are good. The one huge problem is the game length. The longer levels are around 10 minutes, while some are about 3 min. The level I was looking forward to the most, the T-rex level, was only 2 minutes. It was the best level in the game, but shortest too. The game only takes a little more than 3 hours, but that is time well spent. Another bad part was how you are alone as Jack. The game is really messed up because of that. Some really great moments are when fighting the larger raptors, because it takes strategy. This is a great game. Full Review »
