Most people don't care for this game. I don't think it is so bad. the
graphics are about average for an NES game. The game is fairly easy.
That is why you have to start over after each death. (One hit and you
die)It is annoying when on the map scene the ship constantly hits
things and that when you hit something you automatically have to go
under the water. The jelly fish bombing scene can be annoying when
your doing good. It takes you out of your rhythm. Most people can't
keep Jaws' power meter down to zero. It is easy once your at the
third skill level. The game is so easy that I can beat it in under ten
minutes every time.
The graphics are neither horrible nor great. The side screens are
pretty cool. Seeing Jaws's fin come out of the water is pretty cool
too. I like the graphics from the final battle scene and the graphics
from the ending credits. However the graphics during regular
game play are quite bland. Jaws looks more like a guppy than a
menacing great white.
Music and Sound D+
The soundtrack is just simple computer based music. The only good
songs is the Jaws theme song in the beginning and the song at the
end of the game. Otherwise, the music score is rather weak.
Game Challenge F+
This game is very easy. It only takes ten minutes to beat. Simply
collect shells, go from port to port until your skill level is 3, enlilate
Jaws, stab him with the boat and it's all over. This is probably one
of the most simplistic games ever.
Game Play-Fun C+
If you don't dilly-dally around this game can be moderately fun.
After a certain amount of points you will find a mini sub
somewhere in the ocean that is pretty cool. The game can get
repetitive,however. If you have little patience, then this is not
the game for you. However, it doesn't take too much patients
since the game can be beaten in ten minutes.
For some this game can be VERY frustrating. One hit and you are dead
and have to start all over from scratch. Than means you lose all your
money, Jaws gets all his power back, and you loose all your bonus items.
However, only, scrubs get killed in this game. It is very easy thus not
very frustrating. Basically, if you suck, this game is going to frustrate
the living daylights out of you, but if your a stud, it wont.
Since it can be beaten so quickly it can be played over and over again.
However it can get old after a while.
Game Value F+
It was not worth the initial $50.00 or however much it costed
but it is worth $.50 now.
