Feeding Frenzy 2 Review
- Review by Mick
Feeding Frenzy 2: Shipwreck Showdown is the latest installment in the series and it doesn't disappoint. The adventure storyline will have you hooked and wanting to keep playing so you can discover what the mystery fish is. You can gobble up small fish while dashing to avoid being eaten yourself. The game is more geared towards kids but everyone can definitely enjoy this game just the same.
Basic Game Idea - Get Bigger!
You begin the game as Boris the Butterfly Fish, and as you progress through the levels you begin to notice changes in the food chain. Barracudas and Leopard Sharks begin showing up where they never were before. Eventually you will see the shadow of the mystery fish which starts your quest to find it. As you progress even farther through the levels you will play other fish like Edie the Anglerfish or Goliath the Great White Shark. You will eventually need to fight the mystery fish in a boss style fight several times until the end of the game. All this takes place in 60 levels with varying environments.
The gameplay is simple in theory, but becomes very challenging as you move farther into the game. Controlling your fish is done entirely with the mouse. Moving up, down, left and right is done by moving the mouse just like you would normally. The left click causes you to dash while the right click lets you suck in large groups of fish. The second action is not available from the beginning of the game.
Watch What You Eat
When you start each level you are the second to smallest fish on the screen making your goal to eat enough smaller fish that you grow in size and are able to eat larger fish. You repeat this again to grow to a third size, once you have eaten enough in the third size you have completed the level.
At the end of each level you get to read a fun fact about fish or or other aquatic things, which adds a small amount of educational material to the game. During each level bubbles will float up through the level and in these bubbles will be power-ups that will help you complete the level. There are power-ups like the Shrink Shroom that shrinks all fish that are larger than you so you can eat them. Also there is the Feeding Frenzy Power-up, this fills one level of your frenzy multiplier. The frenzy multiplier is a reward for quickly eating large numbers of fish. It works by multiplying your score, so the faster you eat the more points you get.
A Couple Different Game Modes
You can experience the campaign in two ways: the regular mode or the Time Attack mode. The only difference between the two is in the Time Attack mode you must complete each level in a certain amount of time or you fail. You can add time to the timer by eating bubbles that contain a clock. The Time Attack mode make the game a little more challenging if you are bored by the regular mode.
The graphics and sound are good in Feeding Frenzy 2 and very similar to the first game. The environments are all 2D with background detail to make it look like the appropriate environment. The fish are more cartoony than realistic. The sound of eating fish can become annoying after a while since it is the same every time you eat a fish and you will be eating hundreds and hundreds of fish. The sound and graphics don't really add or detract anything from the game.
A few minor issues with the game that could have been done better don't really detract from the game too much either. The first thing is no difficulty settings, any game should include difficulty settings to increase the range of people who will be challenged by the game. You should be able to make the game easier or harder depending on your preferences. The next issue is tied to the difficulty settings, older players might get bored quickly. If the game is too easy or just becomes too repetitive people can become bored with it. That's not to say that everyone can't enjoy this game, but it is definitely geared for a younger audience.
Conclusion - A Fantasically Fun Family Friendly Game :)
Feeding Frenzy 2: Shipwreck Showdown is a family friendly game all the way. The bits of information thrown in will teach kids and adults alike about the fish world. Minor annoyances from the sound and a lack of difficulty settings don't even come close to being a major issue with this great game. If you were a fan of the first game, just enjoy casual gaming or have kids at home then this is a great game for you.
