King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie review

  • Island location so beautiful, real
  • Tense, rewarding combat
  • Simple design is always enjoyable
  • On the verge of repetitive
  • Kong sections are predictable
  • Challenges can feel contrived

This is adventure done right. Though there are only a few different types of weapons or puzzles, each is metered out enough that you'll never become bored of them. With a cast of characters that fills you in on the story as you play instead of boring you with cutscenes, and an ever-changing, never-repeating island environment, the whole thing has a sweep and grandeur very rarely achieved by games. It's simply good fun from beginning to end - like an unexpectedly violent Disneyland ride.
