The latest celluloid adaptation is emotionally packed, exciting, but unlike the big guy, a little on the short side. If youve ever wanted to star as a giant ape on an island teeming with dinosaurs who falls in love with a screen goddess, then goes...

In King Kong the game, you play as both Jack Driscoll and King Kong, reliving scenes from the movie—as well as other events that weren’t in the film. Although the action is frantic, the overall experience is a stilted patchwork of sequences,...

However, boredom also struck me as I played (and especially when I replayed) many of the levels. Creature, stab, repeat. Kong is the real star of this show, but his share of the game is woefully small. Even New York, which is played entirely as Kong,...

Peter Jackson has a lot to answer for in the geek community. Starting with his love of gore, he cemented his reputation with a bunch of insane splatter movies before honing his craft in the incredible, underrated The Frighteners. Then he made a movie...

International Review By Smartson on

Ubisoft har framställt spelet King Kong som är baserat på Peter Jacksons film där man kan spela både som människan Jack eller som King Kong. Rent grafiskt är det stundtals mycket välgjort, men spelet brister i kontroller och spelupplägg menar...

Filmvärlden står inför en stöddig dos nostalgi. Peter Jacksons nytolkning av 30-talsklassikern King Kong går snart upp på biodukarna och storfilmstraditonen trogen släpps samtidigt ett spel baserat på samma story. Dussinprodukt eller blivande...
