I recently had the chance to play this and I loved the graphics,esp. the cool shark attacks but it's a pretty bad game. The shark moves way too quickly! How are you supposed to eat something when you're moving at 35 mph? What does everyone think?

As much as eating swimmers is fun, this has to be the clumsiest game I've played in a long time.

I hear ya,Sirand. I was really looking forward to this game too. Sad Every review I've seen hasn't exactly been great either.

I wrote a review of this over at some other website I don't want to talk about anymore...

To sum it up, nice ideas, poor execution.

The worst thing was the jaws music. Inappropriate in tone since you're the shark, why play scary music... (i get that it's meant to be the sharks theme but all the same) and that it just plays over and over.

and over. and over.

it did convince me that a well made killer shark game would be a tonne of fun, but sadly this wasn't it.

I was disappointed but it is still fun. extremely clumsy controls, sub par graphics, and did anyone else think it was a little lame having jaws grab a scientist with a keycard and dragging him over to the fucking keyreader?

And here I was being called an elitist (is there such a thing as a video game elitist?) because I said I'd bet money that the game was going to suck.

I've enjoyed the game to a degree, but it certainly could've - and should've - been better... I dunno

Well can you clue me in as to what the criteria is to be one?

I saw Jaws: The Revenge so yes I could see that happening! Totally agree that is pretty lame though, trying to picture that moment in the game and am laughing thinking about it.

that was one of the problems though. because you're as smart as a human, that means the shark is, and then they require you to work stuff out like that. i can see why it happened, but the game needed to be less Jaws: The Revenge and more Jaws.

Basically you have to have an extremely snobby attitude towards everyone elses opinion of games. example:

Little Kid: I like Madden, its fun.
Stray13: pfft yeah but I had sex with your mom.

game set and match. Twisted Evil
