    King Kong is one of the best licensed videogames out their. The graphics are some of the best on the Xbox Console. The gameplay is actually pretty good, this games enemy A.I actually makes you think before you act, because one mistake could mean death. The T-Rex battles are awesome, playing as kong is a lot of fun. The story is pretty much the same as the movie, but this game adds a lot of more missions and scenes that are not in the movie which is great. I love the King Kong movie its one of my top 5 favorite movies of all time, and i also love this amazing licensed videogame. Expand

  1. When the game starts giving you the opportunity to play as Kong, it's like Spinal Tap dropped by Ubisoft's studios and cranked it up to eleven.
  2. This dazzling, determinedly populist experience was not made according to the standards other games are made by, and when judged – or even just described – by those standards, it might seem slender to the point of frailty. [Christmas 2005, p.101]
  3. Peter Jackson's midas touch spreads to the video game, as King Kong impresses us with its cinematic visuals and the great giant ape.
