Please do yourself a favor and check out Maneater if you enjoy anything about games in general, especially if you like the themes of aquatic wildlife, social satire, over-the-top comic violence, or open-world exploration; you won’t regret it.
It's not perfect and it is quite repetitive but I wasn't bothered. Maneater is a game we've not seen the likes of before and I hope it inspires more like it. Go and buy Maneater and experience what it's like to be the ultimate Apex Predator.
Tripwire Interactive has managed to capture what it feels like to be Jaws, right down to jumping out of the water, landing on a boat, and chomping away at the hunters on it. That in and of itself is a momentous achievement to accomplish.
Once Maneater sinks its jaws into you, you will be entertained from start to finish.
I was hooked from start to finish, as this over-the-top shark simulator is incredibly well rounded and feature-packed. There is nothing fishy about its shameless violence and savage humour, its polished to perfection. Trust your gut feeling and dive into this headfirst for the definitive apex predator experience!
Maneater's deep combat and deeper oceans provide just the type of blissful escapism we need right now.
What Maneater lacks in variety, it more than makes up for in pure unbridled, delicious carnage.
Maneater is a game made by people who knew the limitations imposed by their budget, the current gen of consoles, and the overall nature of open world games. They managed to craft an incredibly polished murderfest experience that makes you want to kill everything in sight due to how fun its gameplay is.
Maneater is basically Feeding Frenzy on steroids, it’s just an awesome gnarly and fun time.
DID SOMEBODY SAY SHARK?! Now if you are like me, I have always found sharks unbelievably fascinating; the great big beasts of the sea and the different types have always been a slight interest of mine. So, if you are a huge fan of the Jaws movies or even shark week then WELCOME TO MANEATER.
