    Graphics are average at best. Playing Kong was fun for a bit, but the player loses a sense of control during combat due to their attempt to maintain the "cinematic look". This decision causes the gameplay to suffer and takes the control out of the player's hands somewhat.

  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.

    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.
