  • Summary: [Playable on the Xbox and Xbox 360. Available only at Burger King Restaurants from Nov. 19 through Dec. 24, 2006 for $3.99 and the purchase of a BK Value Meal.] Only the King can turn an everyday act into an art form and now players can step into the King's royal shoes and use cunning stealth to sneak up behind unsuspecting people and bestow them with a delicious meal. The goal of Sneak King is to surprise hungry citizens with BURGER KING sandwiches and other menu items throughout the day before they pass out from hunger. Whether in a logging yard, construction site, suburban neighborhood or downtown urban scene -- each rich with detail and hidden pathways -- players can hide out and earn points based on how elaborate the delivery is executed.

  1. The level of fun wears thin fast in this game, making it suitable for short increments of play if you’d like to keep yourself from becoming bored. It’s easily the worst in the BK Games Series.
  2. Despite the rough edges, the price alone makes Sneak King worth checking out, particularly for the younger audience.
  3. The gameplay is one-note repetitive, the environments are stupidly simplistic, and the product placement is overtly in your face. [Holiday 2006, p.78]
  4. Sneak King gets stale ridiculously fast. At least the achievements are easy.
  5. At first its kookiness will have you and any onlookers cracking up, as you watch the King prowl around and do his little dances, but after only ten minutes of play you'll have seen everything the game has to offer, and from then on playing the rest of the way feels more like a chore than anything else - Sneak King is a one-trick pony and its one trick gets old far too soon.

    I can only see this game having use as a cheap and definitely non habit forming method of sleep aid with nightmares as a possible side effect. Or a coaster.

    Sneak King is the gaming equivalent of the Whopper – tasty at first, though nothing special, and it makes you feel kind of ill by the end.

    Quite possibly the greatest game ever made. The stealth mechanics rival those of Snake himself. Whether I was stalking my prey silently or waiting in a box to deliver a deliciously juicy final blow I enjoyed every moment. The solid single player experience spans four levels and while challenges may get repetitive, even today you can enjoy the stealth action Angus attacks regardless of how many others own the game.

    Sneak King did entertain me and make me laugh, however is humor enough to make this an enjoyable game? Sneak King is somewhat open world which I think was a great choice of the developers. Sure, it isn't that fun to explore the open world but it is cool to give people burgers even when you are not playing a 'level'. The game kept me interested for a while with its wide variety of places to hide, but the game is still very repetitive. Heres how a level normally goes: "Wait for hungry person, hide behind them or in some object you can hide in, surprise them, watch a funny animation, repeat". You do the same thing over and over again! However, the game is only about $5 on Amazon and eBay, so you are not being ripped off or anything, although I wouldn't recommend buying this for over $5.

    Sneaking around giving people Burger King food in a game may sound weird, but it is great for a cheap gaming experience. The graphics are a little outdated and the gameplay is difficult. Expand

    This game is a one trick pony of a game. Oh, what a creepy and interesting game it is. Sneaking about, hiding, waiting for the right moment to expose yourself...and a tasty hot meal, is so funny and weird. It keeps the game interesting enough for a little bit. However, your task never grows beyond finding the hungry person, hiding, and popping out when they walk by. You'll lose interest in the game, probably within the first hour, unless you just HAVE to get the achievements. Missions get kinda long, the game is pretty ugly. But hell, the game has a sense of humor, it's fun to see at least. Collapse

    If I had to choose between pulling my own wisdom tooth out with pliers or play this game, I'd play this game, but it's still an awful cash in product. With no story to carry it along you move the creepy mascot in a game that promotes stealth, but don't use any fundamental mechanics that actually work. The game is painfully slow probably to pad out the game length but that's no excuse to make only one mission in terms of variety. It's torture to play a game that comes with blocky and ugly graphics. The audio works, but it's not music to the ears. Worst of all, this makes Burger King look worse than it should be with this kind of promotion. It's not the best of games, and for good reason.
