Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Dec 5, 2008

After we had to restart twice, we began to wonder whether this movie tie-in game would be worth the hassle. While the demo is too short to fully evaluate the game's attempt to recreate a cinematic experience, playing as the mighty ape does offer serious fun.

The demo includes two missions from the hybrid adventure. The first-person mission, "Chased by T-Rex," has you (as hero Jack Driscoll) fighting off a T. Rex with a rifle while fellow adventurers open a gate. In the third-person mission, "Kong vs. T-Rex," Kong fights a nasty T. Rex; swings through the jungle chasing love object Ann; smashes little dinos with a giant log; then takes on two prehistoric reptiles at once. In brief, the Driscoll mission is lame, whereas the Kong mission rocks. Battling dinosaurs as Kong mostly requires extreme button-mashing, but we give the developers credit for using the mouse wheel in a fighting game.

The graphical style is attractive and immersive, much like a dark, exotic cartoon. The third-person effects while fighting as Kong especially impress. After you've landed on the pair of dinosaurs hassling Ann, try jumping onto a ledge, then slamming back onto the unsuspecting anachronisms. Take that, extinct creatures!
