Battle Jaws and all other forms of sea life!
10 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

In this game you battle Jaws, which is not as interesting as saying being Jaws. The game is basically a video game version of "Jaws: The Revenge", though this game is decidedly better than that movie. In it you fight jaws on your boat, in your diving suit and in a mini submarine. You first find a place to look for him, then you dive in the water and finally you shoot at him repeatedly until his health is depleted and you try to reenact the final scene in the fourth Jaws movie of ramming you boat into Jaws and skewer him. It is an okay diversion, it is not anything I would have wanted to own, but it was fine as one of those dollar rentals back in the day as long as you had two or three other games to play as this one gets very repetitive very quickly. Jaws is also a lot less annoying than the jellyfish in this one as Jaws was fairly easy to avoid, those jellyfish were far more bothersome to me than the title character in this one. Granted, it did take a whole heck of a lot of hits to finally get his health down. I never was able to ram him with the boat, got close a couple of times, if you do not do it you have to begin anew. My guess though is that I was not missing much as games based on movies generally have lousy endings anyway.
