Jaws: Ultimate Predator
|Jaws: Ultimate Predator|
Jaws: Ultimate Predator is a 2011 action game published by Majesco Entertainment only in North America. The Nintendo 3DS version was developed by n-Space, and the Wii version by Tectonic Studios (previously known as Collision Studios). It is based on the Jaws media franchise. The Wii version is rated T because of blood and violence, and the Nintendo 3DS version is rated M for blood, gore, and violence. It is similar to Jaws Unleashed. It takes place 35 years after the events of Jaws, ignoring the events of Jaws 2, Jaws 3, and Jaws the Revenge.
Why It Sucks
- The plot is a bit lazy. An evil scientist is experimenting on fish and Jaws has to stop him. What he's doing and why he's doing it are never explained.
- False Rating: Even this port rating T for Teen, there is no blood in the Wii version, which means T rating still has blood content.
- The boss battles are stupid, all you do is have to swing the Wii Remote the whole time till you defeat the boss. It is pathetic.
- The general plot and gameplay are completely ridiculous when they're not being boring.
- One of the bosses is a giant diving suit robot. Jaws destroys it outright with nothing but his teeth and his tail.
- Jaws' attacks are ridiculous- including leaping out of water to body slam entire boats to death.
- Later levels have Jaws fight prehistoric creatures, including the Plesiosaur, Dunkleosteus, and Tylosaurus. There is absolutely no explanation for how these prehistoric beasts exist in the present day.
- One of the bosses is a Megalodon, which there is also no explanation for how this 60-foot long prehistoric shark exists in the present day.
- Jaws gets stuck in walls a lot. This is problematic in later levels that take place in narrow halls.
- No camera controls. You have to fidget Jaws around a lot to look in the direction you want.
- In combat the camera will lock onto enemies, making it difficult to navigate the environment or see what you're doing.
- The camera zooms in extremely close to Jaws, further restricting your vision.
- The story and characters are boring and pointless. The story itself is so poorly and vaguely told that it's difficult to follow.
- Unlike its direct prequel, the game is not open-world.
- The collectibles are boring- doing nothing but improving Jaws' stats, which you barely need.
- Combat is boring button mashing against small groups of enemies with no strategy.
- The cinematic scenes are made of dull still images that look like a bad cartoon.
- The game is short at about three hours.
- Good Soundtrack.
- Voice acting is decent.
- The controls on the Wii are easy to figure out.
- Shark design is not bad.
- The 3DS version is way better then the Wii version as it contained blood in it.
- The target system is way better then the last game's target system.
- Graphics are a bit decent.
Jaws: Ultimate Predator received mixed to negative reception from critics. The 3DS version has a Metascore of 50 (Mixed or average reviews) and the Wii version has a Metascore of 31 (Generally unfavorable reviews).
