kong - film or playstation game?
That's not a film!! It's a very large, expensive advert for a playstation game. It's even organised into levels for easy transition to console format.
After the introduction, the levels begin:
Level 1: Endurance - successful players must sit through an agonisingly slow ship journey across some ocean or other while nothing much really happens.
Level 2: The natives - shoot them all, they speak a different language to you.
Level 3: Adventure - get your team across the bridge and onto the island.
Level 4: Dinosaurs
Level 5: More dinosaurs
Level 6: Weird leechy things with big teeth
Level 7: Insects the size of dogs
Level 8: Honeypot game - snatch the girl away from sleeping Kong
Level 9: Bats
Level 10: Empire Status - climb the ladders up the outside of the Empire State Building wearing silver stilettos
Level 11: Kong - stop him before he destroys the whole of NYC
I haven't seen the original film so I don't know how similar this one is. Don't really feel like I've missed out though. This one is long, slow, disjointed.....
