Preview: ‘Tokyo Jungle’
PS3 game review, September 11, 2012 – chicagotribune.com
…Available Sept. 25, “Tokyo Jungle” takes place in a Will Smith-free post-apocalyptic Japan where humans are no longer around. “Tokyo Jungle” will allow you to play an animal of your choice among more than 50 species, and then try to survive on the streets of Tokyo.
Pick an herbivore or a carnivore and your main gameplay system will switch from stealth, to aggressive combat. The game is tailored in such a way that you will eventually die, but it is not the destination, but the path taken that matters. Not unlike an RPG coming right out of a mad scientist/game-designer, you will be able to level up your wild beast, even a toy-breed dog can be lethal weapon in the untamed boulevards of Tokyo ...more…
“TOKYO JUNGLE” ? Hmmm. In the trailer for the game below, I think I saw a flock of baby chicks and a carnivorous pack of pandas. What an adorable bunch of killing machines.
I love how they label this as an “urban based animal survival genre”—as if that’s a genre. Well, I suppose it is now.
Brainfart: There are partypoop PETA people who use the term “animal abuse” for Pokemon–What are they going to call Tokyo Jungle?
