Hungry Shark World
Within it's ocean depths, there's plenty of fun to be found in coming back to Hungry Shark World every once in a while. The game's point system makes it competitive enough for players who want to beat their personal best score, but the game really puts emphasis on running the same stages with different sharks which can start to grind. So while the game itself is pretty fun, Hungry Shark is one of those games best played in short bursts.
Hungry Shark World: Console Edition is much more than a simple port, both technically and in terms of gameplay. Removing in-game purchases and improving the sharks' control make the experience significantly better. However, although the game is fun, its extreme simplicity can make it repetitive for some players after just a few hours.

If you find Ecco the Dolphin a bit dull, Hungry Shark World is an ideal antidote – what it lacks in finesse it makes up for with vicious energy. The gated content is doled out a little slowly, but the base gameplay is fast and satisfying, if a little repetitive. However, it's the interminable loading screens that truly destroy the pace and hamper the arcade-style fun, making this one hard to recommend.
It's totally possible to be intrigued by what Hungry Shark World has to offer on PS4, Xbox One and Switch. It's a simple game with easily understandable mechanics. Sadly, progression is quite laborious and dull, and outdated visuals and loading times are definitely not helping.

As a mobile game, the gameplay design here just doesn't work as well for consoles. There is a lot to grind just to progress and unlock more levels or the different variety of sharks which is ultimately its biggest weakness.
