It offers more of everything you'd expect and then some -- gorgeous graphics, incredible animations, visceral sound effects, terrific cut scenes, wild weapons, unique characters (wise-cracking Brits, a diaphanously dressed magical sea nymph, and a towering giant), and deadly enemies with effective AI.
One of the best older games I've ever played. The humor the 3 VERY different player types all interacting together in both single player and the never ending great multiplayer. I am SUPER SUPER PISSED this game never got BIG like other games. This game deserves to be reborn and get popular for a change because anyone who played it loved it!!! PERIOD!!!
Vibrant, sharp, and pretty are just a few adjectives that may sum up my final thoughts on the game's sound and appearance… And it all goes perfectly well with the offbeat nature of the game -- the edgy attitude, and the genuinely funny Pythonesque dialogue.
If it wasn't so buggy, allowed for mid-mission saves, and had better multiplayer support, it would rate much higher. As it stands, though, it will be a labor of love for some, a frustrating burden for others.
Of drive-in movie reviewer Joe Bob Brigg's infamous three B's, Giants' developers in a politic move took out two (Blood and Breasts). The third, Beasts, is still enough to carry the game, though the addition of a fourth B—Bugs—is certainly regrettable.
One of those incredibly unique and original titles that were never truly appreciated, despite offering fantastic visuals and worlds especially for it's time, beautiful soundtrack by 2 of the best composers, , fun gameplay offering 3 completely different factions and amazing both single-player and multiplayer experience. 10/10
I cant believe it, its 2014 and i still play Giants On-line With my old school Friends! Giants has a very unique GamePlay and some fancy and enjoyable graphics regarding of its release date, The History isn't the best out there, but the Feeling This Game Offers is neat and very original i have to admit (compared with other games up to this date) and the Multiplayer Combination of Base Building and Team-Working to Defeat other totally Different Races is just GENIUS.
Its a shame the developers team ran out of funds to release the game as they wanted to, I could pay to see a Giants 2 for sure.
Giants: Citizen Kabuto is one of my top 10 games of all time, a three part story complete of all parties associated with the planet and its inhabitants, with funny quarky moments, a good sound track and a lot of British slang and voice acting, this is one of the few games that really lifts my spirits after playing too many redundant games in the late era. Especially the base building mechanics in the game, paired with the way you destroy the enemies base.
Kind a wish there was a Giants 2
One of the funniest games ever created. Mechanically they threw in everything except the kitchen sink. So if you want a focused polished experience this ain't it, but if you want imagination and diversity it's great. A bit buggy and hard to get into because of the dated tech to really recommend.
Giants is a hybrid FPS/TPS with lightweight floaty combat, similar to C&C Renegade. There is no inventory/ammo management or map exploration, the basic game loop: you go to the map marker, kill/fetch the target, watch cutscene, restock on items and repeat. Enemies are stupid and there are no difficulty levels. Again, the combat has no weight to it and in general the game feels very cheaply made.
As you can see from the other reviews, the only thing the game has going for it is the humour. The characters have funny accents, say bad words, and even make pp jokes! Highly recommend /s
SummaryA frenzied action game in which players battle each other with one of three distinct races: The Meccs, the Sea Reapers, or the giant named Kabuto. These three species are highly incompatible with one another, and are all battling for supremacy over the islands on which they inhabit. [Interplay]
