maneater review : Maneater is a Single-Player Action RPG, set in the unforgiving waters of the Gulf Coast. Fight to survive in the open ocean, with danger lurking at every depth. Your only tools are your wits, your jaws, and an uncanny ability to evolve as you feed. Anything and everything is on the menu… kill or be killed.
Through a couple of millennia of diligence and dedication Sharks have earned a reputation for themselves as nature’s perfect killing machines, and Maneater’s titular sea monster certainly lives up thereto reputation. Roaming the Gulf of Mexico as a pissed-off cub shark with an insatiable appetite for human flesh and mutagens sort of a one-shark Sharknado is certainly a campy thrill.
Its limitation, though, is that it’s even as single-minded as its predator protagonist: the vast, overwhelming majority of what you’ll neutralize Maneater are “go here, kill X of this animal or people” objectives by way of combat that’s as deep as a puddle, choppy by some amusing exploration and gathering of collectibles.
I’m not saying it should’ve made us jump through hoops sort of a circus seal or anything, but there simply isn’t enough gameplay variety to justify the huge amount of chomping you’ve got to try to to to succeed in megashark status.
introducing about maneater review
Our shark anti-hero has her own personal Captain Ahab in the form of a sleazy Cajun shark hunter with his own ‘Deadliest Catch’-esque reality series (also called Maneater), which serves as a framing device for the roughly 15-hour story.
That said – and I don’t mean to shock you here – their rivalry and your nemesis’ gradual descent into deformity and madness doesn’t end up as an especially thought-provoking tale. This game is entirely tongue-in-cheek, of course, yet the shark hunter plays his vendetta a little too straight to be memorably goofy.

I just received this game this afternoon. so my inputs will be a bit limited until I get farther into the game.
So far though, I’m not bored. It’s just so much fun to swim around and explore the environment right now. The only downside is that all the other predators are so powerful, and my shark actually got killed by an alligator while trying to make it back to home…the alligator for some bizarre reason wouldn’t stop chasing me.
The game crashed at one point, but so far the game has otherwise been running solid.
For $33 on sale right now for ps4, this’s something hard to pass up for a new title. I’ve read that it doesn’t have alot of depth, but right now, I don’t need it…like I said, it’s just fun to relax, have a shark swim around and eat everything in sight, and enjoy the beautiful visuals. It’s probably not the most accurate depiction of what is underwater, but hey, you’re playing as a man-eating shark, so creative license is allowed here without getting too ridiculous.
It’s almost a missed opportunity for the dev to have the game randomly have the shark swim around within the unlocked environments, like a “fish tank mode” just to have something to watch on screen while doing chores and whatnot.
maneater review2 & PlayStation 4
Ok this game is simply plain stupid, but during a great way . It stupid just like the movies “Killer Clowns from Outer Space” and “Sharknado” It the type of stupid that you simply really will enjoy. You swim around eating everything you’ll see. sea life, or better yet Humans, eat all the humans. The Story is entertaining at the smallest amount .
not deep but it’ll cause you to laugh. Over all an excellent game and that i would highly recommend, it a fun thanks to spend a while , you’ll leave having enjoyed yourself fully.
I am a touch sadistic so sometimes i might ask my echo to play Man Eater by Holen Oats while playing the sport , just makes it just that bit more fun.
THe controls do take some getting use to, but once you are doing you’ll have a serious blast.
