"Kong is most certainly King"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

When a game of King Kong was announced, I was at first somewhat skeptical as game licences based on movies usually fail to live up to expectations. But once I heard that Peter Jackson had a hand in overseeing the game from day one I became more intrigued.

Having received my excellent copy of King Kong: Collectors Edition, I can report that I need not have worried. This special pack contains a wonderful gold tin casing, artwork and a bonus ‘making of’ DVD featuring Peter Jackson and the designers of Ubisoft.

The designers state that they had two aims for this game: to make you go “wow” and to make you cry at the end. Just like a real life movie. Well, playing the game certainly makes you go “wow” and a few other choice words.

You are completely immersed in the jungle of Skull Island as Jack, interacting with Ann Darrow, Carl Denham and a couple other members of your crew. I love the way the game is completely playable as you make your way through the dense undergrowth of what must be the hellest jungle on earth.

Using your bare neccessaties and some verbal wit from Carl, you make your way fighting off every creepy crawlie imaginable.

I have not finished the game so I guess you will have to accomplish that to see if it gets in touch with your feminine side but of what I have seen so far, I am very impressed.

Mr Jackson keeps raising the bar and we all wait with baited breath to see what he can do with Halo.

In the meantime, buy this game, watch the movie and long live the King!

Description

The Collector's Edition of Peter Jackson's King Kong features the following in addition to the game itself:
  • "Making of" DVD, featuring development team interviews plus Peter Jackson and Philippa Boyens;
  • Three limited edition artworks printed on high quality drawing paper and signed by Michel Ancel;
  • Packaged in a beautiful golden metal box with Peter Jackson's signature and a transparent sleeve. Acclaimed game creator Michel Ancel and the Montpellier studio collaborate with triple Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson and visual-effects company Weta Ltd to develop Peter Jackson's King Kong, a video game that will capture the imagination, vision and emotion of the epic film. Delve deeper into the film experience through alternative viewpoints designed to immerse the player into the action and truly "feel" the tension of the adventure.
  • Unprecedented Alternating Gameplay Battle for survival on Skull Island in first-person as Jack Driscoll AND experience the staggering power of King Kong in third-person taking on massive beasts.
  • Cinematic Quality By integrating Weta assets directly into the game engine, and taking a true cinematic approach, from both a visual and audio perspective, players are thrust directly onto the Skull Island where the dark jungles, over-sized environment and lurking danger become reality.
  • Cooperate with Your Expedition Team Each team member plays a crucial role and complements each other with valuable skills and abilities. The player relies on them and vice-versa to succeed. The unique resource management system keeps the action seamless and plausible while keeping items, weapons and assets readily available.
  • King Kong is one of the most powerful of all the creatures on Skull Island and players will learn first-hand what it means to be feared, respected and dominant. Kong will use both his agility and his raw, brute strength by any means necessary to battle enemies and navigate though the perils of Skull Island.
  • Experience All Key Movie Moments and More Journey through the explosive action of all the key movie moments, as Jack and Kong, and even explore the beautifully-rendered mysterious jungle environments not seen in the film.
  • Engage in Climactic Battles Intense and unbelievable battles with all creatures featured in the film challenge players' nerves and skills in fighting the savage beasts created by Weta - some of which are exclusive to the game.
  • Film Cast Likeness and Voice Full immersion into the dynamic King Kong universe realized via inclusion of film cast member's likenesses and voice-over
