Jaws Unleashed isn't perfect, not at all. A real Carcharodon carcharias moves more quickly and lithely and is more accurate in targeting prey than the giant in this game. There's no way that a White would get stuck in the ruins of a boat, for instance, as he can do in this game. Also, while the camera angles aren't abysmal in the game, they could be a lot better. If you're in an area that's like a thin tunnel, you'll probably get stuck. You'll waste precious time and energy just trying to get out of these kinds of pickles. Remember, if you don't eat every few minutes, you'll die. Developers should never have allowed this kind of trap to occur repeatedly.
But what's great about this Great White Shark game is that it feels new and different. Innovation is really lacking in the game industry these days. So a game like Jaws Unleashed, in which you play one of the world's most feared and most misunderstood creatures, is a welcome break from the plethora of first person shooters that are constantly foisted upon the market. If only they had fixed the bugs and camera angles, Jaws Unleashed would have been one of the year's best games.
