Only Worth Achievements

This is a very short review for King Kong: The official game of the movie, simply because it has been a while since I have played it. I picked this game up probably sometime in late 2006 or early 2007. I beat the game, but it was painful. I did hear there were easy achievements and i thought maybe it would be a little fun. Let me correct that, this game is terrible in my opinion. Why is this game terrible?

Game Play
Very frustrating. Half of the time you will be solving dumb puzzles like setting grass on fire to get to another area. I'm a relatively smart person, not trying to brag, but honestly these puzzles gave me a headache. Other than this it is a decent FPS, but adds nothing new to the table.

Graphics

Pretty good for a launch title. Nice environment details for the time.

Story
Pretty much goes along with the movie.

Overall

I guess if you are an achievements whore, then you should probably buy this game, just because it is probably 5 or 10 bucks by now i would guess, cheaper to buy than rent. If your looking for a fun game to play, don't buy this game.

Another reason why this game only recieves 2 and a half stars is because I dont belive that It captures the greatness of the movie enough. Although it is great for being one of the first 360 games....

    I think Peter Jackson makes some pretty good films. I was interested in the fact that he, as someone who liked video games himself, promised to make his King Kong tie-in video game better than the heap of poorly designed games that we were used to seeing. I was also intrigued by Michel Ancel working with the Ubisoft studios to help develop the game. I had never played Beyond Good and Evil, but I knew that something worth playing was there. Ultimately, I chose to forego the game until I saw...
