Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
Video games based on movies have never had a terrific track record but this looks like breaking the mould forever. Not only is the Peter Jackson himself involved; but so is the Michel Ancel, creator of video game classics such as Rayman. The results look extraordinary.

The lowdown:
You take on the roles of both Jack Driscoll and the mighty Kong. Being the big monkey is great, naturally, but the feeling of power is neatly turned on its head when you play as the considerably more vulnerable Jack. Overall, it's an intense, absorbing romp.

Most exciting moment:
Escaping down some white water rapids as a puny human, chased by two tyrannosaurs rex.

Since you ask:
Peter Jackson loved Michel Ancel's Beyond Good & Evil game so much that he asked him to make Kong.

The bottom line:
Potentially, the most cinematic video game ever made.
Harrison Dent

5.0 out of 5 stars Monkey business 10 Jan 2006
There have been disappointing results when a movie director and game company have worked together, but King Kong is a different result. It doesn't feel like a game world, it feels like a movie world. Compare the movie and game and you'll get similiar results. First off, you play as Jack Driscoll, scriptwriter and hero of the story. Rest assured, there's no writing to be done. This is a fight for survival. There are dinosaurs and creepy crawlies everywhere so what do you do? Smash open a cleverly-dropped seaplane crate and take out the weapon inside - could be a pistol, machine gun, shotgun or sniper rifle - and then start shooting them! It's cool, fending off T-Rexes with a machine gun, luring him into traps and using other little dinos as bait. Also all over the island are spears. These you can either throw or do a melee attack. Oh, and don't forget burning brushwood with it that block your path! Soon after, you'll be able to take control of Kong himself, swinging from trees, wrestling T-Rexes and rescuing damsel-in-distress, Ann. These levels are fantastic and a great experience. Also after you've completed the game, you can gain access to incredible extras such as cast & crew interviews and production art! Get it now before Kong wrecks it up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Captures the movie perfectly 16 Jan 2006
Forget Fahrenheit. Forget MGS or even The Movies. The fact is, King Kong (or Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie to give it its full title) is the most cinematic videogame available. It's based on an incredible film, it represents it incredibly well, it looks incredible and to top it all off it was made on Peter Jackson's advice. A winning formula if any.
Jackson himself is an admitted fan of videogames and he had already picked out a game designer to bring Kong to small screens by the end of 2003. Michel Ancel created one of Jackson's favourite games, 2003's spectacular but criminally-ignored Beyond Good and Evil, and the director hand-picked Ancel to bring his vision to life. Jackson's chosen well, as we'll see.
It could be said that the only way to truly enjoy Kong is on a big screen with the volume all the way up to 11. The amount of detail on the screen is astounding and only a big TV would do the game justice to let you pick out little details. The likenesses of the characters - from Jack Black to Naomi Watts - are incredible and easily comparable to photos. Voice likenesses are also used and the film's cast recorded dialogue especially for the game, which makes it reek of authenticy.
In Kong itself, the main part of the game involves playing not as the great ape but as one of the film's main human characters, writer-turned-hero Jack Driscoll. When playing as Jack, Kong is a first person game in which survival is the order of the day as you set off to explore Skull Island as in the film. In order to survive you'll have to co-operate with and work with your fellow explorers Carl, Hayes, Jimmy and Ann. This means covering them when they're on the move and giving them weapons to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars play as Jack, play as Kong 2 Mar 2006
By A. Craig HALL OF FAME
Verified Purchase
This is a charming game. I don't normally like the kind where you are playing a shooter, but once you've fought your way past many dinosaurs and got through the gates, you can change into Kong which is far more exciting.
The other really sweet thing is that at the end of the game, you can fly a plane over Kong and rescue him by taking him back to Skull Island.

5.0 out of 5 stars KING KONG ROCKS!!!!!!!!! 19 Dec 2005
Awesome. This game is superb. Kong allows you to play 1st person as Jack and at various stages allong the way as Kong in 3rd person. The 1st person shooter levels make up the bulk of the playing and are action packed, and extremely fast paced with the non player characters building momentum and atmosphere throughout. The Kong levels can be a tad frustrating, but some Kong like button bashing should suffice. The only drawback is that the game is comprised of numerous short stages, meaning death is usually followed by regeneration at convieniant areas nearby, therefore limiting the difficulty. Overall, excellent fun, highly cinemantic and addictive but possibly a little easy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game 1 Jan 2006
I spent most of 2 days enjoying this game. The amount of times i would move myself as if to make Jack move faster...
Its great fun having the V-Rex run towards you then spearing them as they open their mouths. Make sure you look after your bullets, many times i died needing them.
I like the fact you have no cursors (there is an option to put an aim and weapon select) on the screen. Gives it a very good feel, as if you're sat there just watching it.
Graphics are good. Music is also good. I like it when you get attacked and that erie music plays. Gameplay is good. It would have been nice to have had a free reign of the island. And to also play as Kong even more. You'll just love bashing those T-Rex's.

4.0 out of 5 stars good game 16 Dec 2005
This game is very much a all round good game. The graphics are brill. The game is very tense and i found myself jumping every time a giait centipent crawled out infront of me. The first person view is not brilliant but i got used to it. The game some times repeats its self like when you have to throw spears at crabs and dinos but when you get to the good bits like the first time you are kong you get a sense of who is boss, dinos get thrown to the ground and battered. I am on a bit where it is dark and there is centipents in a dark murky water it is quite hard that bit because when you kill the first one with a rifle 5 more come round the corner.
