Jaws' best worst moments

Two new videos showcase some of the dumbest - and therefore funniest - aspects of this summer's shark simulator

Here's a little secret for you: we, the editors of GamesRadar, love Jaws Unleashed. Not because it's a particularly well-designed game, which it isn't. No, we love it because of its rich potential for gruesome aquatic stupidity. We love it because it's so over-the-top that what would otherwise be cruel becomes hilarious. We love it because a shark fires missiles. And we've decided to share some of our favorite moments with you in two spankin' new videos, taken from the Xbox version of the game.

The first video, titled "Jumping the Shark," is a short montage of Jaws doing the things sharks like to do - like eating helicopters, tail-whipping people into the air to make them explode and spitting explosives at the beachfront homes of wealthy executives.

The second, which we call "Suck It, Dolphin!,"follows Jaws on atrip through a SeaWorld-like aquatic park, where he rips open an orca and mangles trainers, all to the delight of the tourists in the stands.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
