Experience the ultimate power fantasy as the apex predator of the seas – a terrifying SHARK! Maneater is a single player, open world action RPG (ShaRkPG) where YOU are the shark. Starting as a small shark pup you are tasked with surviving the harsh world while eating your way up the ecosystem. To do this you will explore a large and varied open world encountering diverse enemies – both human and wildlife. Find the right resources and you can grow and evolve far beyond what nature intended, allowing the player to tailor the shark to their play style. This is fortunate, because to get revenge on the cruel fisherman that dismembered you will take evolving into a massive shark, an apex predator of legends. Eat. Explore. Evolve.
Although it’s hindered by performance issues, Maneater allows you to gleefully live out your wildest (and perhaps bloodiest) killer shark revenge fantasies. What’s more, the game’s dark sense of humor means you don’t have to feel guilty about the carnage that ensues.
This is no worthy exploration of man’s cruelty to the natural world, and I suspect marine biologists would have something to say about much of the science, but it’s the perfect distraction from a world gone mad, and weirdly therapeutic. When you’re not filling the water with blood or launching an innocent human into the air with a flick of your tail, the waters are a pretty playground, and there’s always mischief to be made in the resorts, water parks, and marinas. Just don’t dob me into the killer whale I sponsored when I was 12.
Good game, it’s fun and it has vey good graphics, it looks very polished and the controls are easy to learn. Very recommended for those who are looking for fun eating humans. It’s the best shark game ever.
At first i was afraid that this game would become uninteresting after a hour of playing. But, its really addictive and weirdly therapeutic. It’s nice and simple. Also, the feeling of being a badass shark is great.
Its another one of those tripwire games where you can just sit back relax and let your self go. The game does get boring after a while but it does have its great points starting and does refresh it’s self time after time sure its not like killing floor 2 but for a shark game its amazing i’d say go for it but wait off for a sale if your not sure its one of those games you should keep on the shelves if you feel like letting loose at times! also Shark in the river and other game songs fit well sometimes you can mute the music play your own and just enjoy a ride with the environment being fun to explore.
PS4 PRO version is unplayable right now. The console is regularly overheating and the fan noise is simply unbearable. (I have cleaned it last week and i haven’t encountered this issue with my other games)
Otherwise the game seems fun at first sight, but after 2 hours the gameplay loop is already looking pretty repetitive. Also, i think $40 is way overpriced for this kind of little game.
IMO game worth a 6/10 so far, but i put a 0 until they fix this overheating issue.
I expected little more than a Deep Blue Sea, but it turned into The Meg pretty quickly, ultimately resulting in a Jaws: The Revenge that ate my savegame. Don’t be temped by the prospect of being a sea predator; deep in your heart you know it’s not going to be as much fun as you hope it will be.
