Should've been called "Grand Theft shark: amity"
24 January 2010 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

I like jaws. That movie doesn't scare me crap-less like other people (but the initial scene did in 1995) and i actually will find myself tuning into the movie whenever i get a chance. this film holds the reputation for being the first summer blockbuster, Exceeding 100 million dollars in ticket sales. This record was soon broken by George Lucas's star wars in 1977.

but then in 2006, a few small gaming companies get together to grant one wish...to play as the shark. But here's where I get confused. they called it "Jaws Unleashed" when they could've called it Jaws: Vengeance, or Jaws: Death from the depths, or my personal Favorite, Grand Theft Shark: Amity Island." I mean, Is Jaws really chained up? In Jaws Unleashed, It's your job to raise hell in amity without dying. In order to do that, you swim up to beaches and devour some unsuspecting bathers, and at the same time, chewing them to bits (Sounds like fun, right?) well, i'm a highly desensitized guy, but this game really bothered me the first time i played it. ripping innocent human beings apart with a shark that doesn't have any logic other than to eat, is really sick. fortunately, for pussies like me, the game programmers allowed me to eat other fish, dolphins, whales, and alligators. yes. I cannot stand seeing a bikini clad babe get her torso severed in mid thorax (movie reference) but seeing flipper getting his head bitten off makes me laugh harder than achmed the dead terrorist bragging about how he's gonna get 72 virgins in heaven.

I've heard a lot of angry video game nerd knock-offs just bash the controls on and on, as if the game's responsible for all the world's Problems. Yes, the controls suck, but the game's still playable. once you get used to the controls, you can have fun.

The music is basically the jaws theme, and then the jaws theme remixed, too many times over. There could've been a better soundtrack, maybe dubbing in some stock 70s music during the swim sequences, rather than the same old duuh-dunt, duuuh-dunt over and over.

The Story mode is stock itself. Mayor Larry Vaughn obviously got over having his kids nearly killed in the jaws movie, and wants the beaches open, despite the increasing amount of sharks in the area. but Michael Brody keeps telling him over and over that the increasing sharks in the area are from the company that spends it's time sending machines around to collect things. yeah, i didn't get well into the story mode so i don't know whats up.

How about the loading screens? the game's designers put together a series of trivia about the movie, of course, where does the trivia come directly from? Thats Right. The Internet Movie Database. Right here. Damn pirates.

Finally, Extras. there are various clips from the movie, which you can watch if you collect all the tin cans in the levels. i don't what scenes are there (there's about 8, probably scenes of the shark's attacks.) except for one where the 2 guys throw the roast into the water hoping to cash in on $3,000.

Bottom line, this one's a rental.

6/10
