  • Summary: You were cut from your mother's body and left to die in the unforgiving waters of the Gulf Coast. Your only tools are your wits, your jaws, and an uncanny ability to evolve as you feed. Anything and everything is on the menu... provided you kill it before it kills you.

    Maneater's deep combat and deeper oceans provide just the type of blissful escapism we need right now.

    While its story missions and their variety can be improved upon, especially when it comes to the endgame, Maneater is an absolute blast. The open world is beautiful, captivating and inviting for players of all kinds, the combat is incredibly fun, and it has a nice and sharp bit of humor to it as well, reveling in just how much the people of Port Clovis are obvious jerks…which only makes it more enjoyable to rip them apart, of course. It might not be on par with the likes of Jaws, but what we have here is still one stellar b-movie to gleefully go nuts in. And sometimes, that’s really all you need in order to help live out your monster movie fantasies.

    Maneater is more than entertaining with a good quality product, good control, great map design and a story of sea revenge full of surprises. It may not be a game of the year, but it's still a great game, funny with a very dark sense of humor.

    Despite a fair amount of repetition and simple design, Maneater offers a surprisingly fun atmosphere with lots of bloody action to sink your teeth into.

    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.

    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 level progression is pretty bad and poorly planned. 90% of the missions they give you at level 1 are to kill level 8 or level 15 enemies. So you have to grind and explore a lot. You get 1 power at level 2. I'm level 7 now and I still haven't gotten anything new since level 2 in terms of powers or abilities. I still can't complete some of the first missions because they are against gangs of level 8s. Once I hit 6 I felt confident enough to tackle level 8 enemies, but that's when the level 8s start showing up in groups. It's easy to avoid the 8s and feed and complete objectives, but it just all feels very poorly planned and executed. Some new powers or abilities to explore would break up the monotony.

    The Unreal engine crashed once in 2 hours. It's fairly stable and the graphics are good. The core mechanics work fine, and it competently meets the objective of a shark simulator.

    If you are on the fence about this game and thinking "eating fish may get repetitive, but maybe there are some cool hooks and twists to keep things interesting", maybe pass or wait for a sale.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Первые 15% игры сложные, сражения тяжёлые. НО игра кажется увлекательной.
    Начиная с 3 зоны чувствуется лютый гринд, но он не такой тяжёлый как в начале.

    Боевая система простая до ужаса, кусай-уворачивайся.
    Элементы брони открываются почти в самом конце игры.
    Пассивные скиллы абсолютно бесполезны.

    Прошёл игру на 100% за 12 часов. Весь сюжет укладывается в 4-5 кат сцен.

    По началу нравилось, в середине кажется что разработчикам надоело и они решили кое-как доделать игру, лишь бы был какой-то конец.
    Эндгейма - нет.

If you enjoy spamming attack and then doing theExtremely repetitive boring game, the novelty of being a shark wears off after about 2 hours. If you enjoy spamming attack and then doing the same 3 mission types over and over and over then this is a game for you. Story is pretty terrible and comes to such an abrupt ending you wonder why they even bothered to include it.

    AI is terrible, you jump on land and then all the humans just stand in place screaming. The combat is dreadful, you have a few attacks but when you realise that spamming attack is the most effective means of attack it makes the rest of the abilities moot.

    Go and kill ten fish, go and kill 10 humans, go and kill 10 fish back over there etc etc etc. If you enjoy this then by all means play it, if however you want something that doesn't get boring within 2 hours go and play something else.
