    Much like no one ever sees a shark attack coming, Maneater is a gem hidden in an ocean of offerings and those who find it will be in for a precious and fun experience.

    If you can live with the issues, you'll find Maneater to be a ridiculously good time. The aforementioned issues are a shame, but the distinct nature of being a shark and the ability to deliver mayhem in a different way. It'll remind players of what was so appealing about open-world games in the first place. Thanks to Maneater's relatively short completion time compared to other open-world titles, it's well worth checking out.

    With more in the game than the concept might suggest, this is a fun to play title and exceeded my initial expectations of how the game would be. It’s a little short and I would have liked more of it, but this is definitely worth picking up.

    Maneater may not be as enthralling as the Nelly Furtado song, but it’ll certainly make you work hard and make you want all her love because the game’s snarky personality does make you want to continue playing all the same. I’d personally wait until it goes on sale, but whenever you do purchase Maneater, I’m certain you’ll have a whale of a time.

    Considering the largely uncharted waters (sorry) of the shark simulator genre, it is hard to fault Maneater for its flaws. On the other hand, open world design has been a staple of gaming for over a decade and it is a shame to see such repetitive quest design. Along with a few too many claustrophobic environments, I have a hard time giving Maneater a blanket recommendation. That being said, I had a lot of fun playing it, and I think there is a lot to like if you can deal with a few annoyances.

    It's just a shame the journey from infant to megashark isn't populated with a wider variety of activities. Like Hooper said, sharks just swim and eat, and that's unfortunately not enough to fill even a short action-RPG like Maneater.

    The Tripwire shark has slightly sharp teeth, moves with unmanageable spasms and cannot vary either its diet or the bleak routine of a boring and mechanical hunting. Stranded on the sand, it waits for the sad fate that falls to all the fish left in the sun.

The rpg system where you can see you shark grow and upgrade from a little baby to an ancient monster is incredible. I really had a great time playing. But of course, it has some problems, like really annoying loads, some bugs, and camera control in battle sometimes is a bit confuse. But it’s still a really fun game to play and pass the time. Expand

The game isThe games concept is awesome I would have love to be a shark killing humans and other animals but they really failed to execute. The game is clearly for an 13+ age but the way it is designed looks like it was for ages 4+. It is cringey, the sharks evolution is bs. No replayibality what so ever. Expand

Настолько плохо сделать игру, нужно ещё постараться. В игре не работает полноэкранный режим, игра разворачивается почти на весь монитор не считая пары пикселей, из-за чего вы будете постоянно вылетать на рабочий стол, также при каждом входе в игру ваши настройки сбросятся до стандартных, например разрешение сбросится до 1776 X 992 при разрешении вашего экрана 2560 X 1440.
    По итого игра определённо не стоит своих денег, за которые я её приобрёл (я забрал ёё бесплатно).
