Bump your chests, here are the ten first minutes of King Kong (Xbox). Those who were expecting the worst can take a breath, the videogame adaptation of Peter Jackson's blockbuster totally kick ass. Sorry, you need to know more ? Right then, I give you more.
Developed by Michel Ancel, creator of Beyond Good & Evil and Rayman, King Kong is a special game. Half FPS, half third person 'swing'n-smash", King Kong is the kind of game that makes your eyes sparkling, from the first image to the very last name of the ending credits. Yep, just that way. I'm not gonna take three pages about it, but the way Ancel designed a living, almost concrete playground is just prodigious. As well as the directing and the graphics really show how the guy and his team totally mastered the technologic and artistic sides of their game.
Sometimes, the game let you control Kong. So, you pass from the skinny Jack, trying to save his life from some big monsters, to the gigantic King Kong, who beat the hell out of two T-Rexs with a hand in the back. The gameplay reversion provides so much fun, it's just a total enjoyment. Controlling Kong as he swings from tree to tree, knocking dinosaurs and big pterodactyls with his huge hairy arms is extremely gratifying and give a lot of satisfaction. Anyway, to end this little critic, let's just say that, more than an great adaptation, King King is simply a great game. And, believe me when I say, that's not half of a compliment.
@Sdarts: Play it today at a friend house on coop. Definitely much better game than the first and the first was already really good. I was also surprise how well it plays with a controller. (7 Hours ago)

@Sdarts: No lies detected man, very true. I don't know why I didn't notice it before, then again my only way of seeing a HDR game was via a video or two. But now with my own games and being able to (12 Hours ago)

@Moonwalker: HDR does more for that "Wow!" factor than just increasing resolution to 4K. (12 Hours ago)
Tried out FM7 demo, FH3, Recore and man....what a difference. SDR looks dull in comparison now, jeez. In terms of colours for starters, sky and sun in FM7 and FH3 looks lovely, vivid. (13 Hours ago)
