Maneater, the open word, shark RPG is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC… but is it any good? Tune in to this Maneater PS4 Review as Chris Waters breaks down the various elements of the game and gives his thoughts.
Maneater is an upcoming action role-playing game developed and published by Tripwire Interactive. The game is set to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in May 2020 and Nintendo Switch at a later date in 2020. In the game, the player assumes control of a female bull shark who must evolve and survive in an open world so as to take revenge on a fisherman who had disfigured her as a pup and killed her mother.
The game is an action role-playing game played from a third-person perspective. In the game, the player assumes control of a baby bull shark who must take revenge on shark hunter Scaly Pete, who killed the mother shark and disfigured the baby shark. The shark has several basic attacks, including charging into enemies, siloing out of the water, and whipping enemies with its tail to stun them. It can also use its surroundings for combat advantages, such as using a swordfish as a spear. The shark needs to hunt and consume other aquatic wildlife such as fish and turtles in order to obtain nutrients, namely proteins, fats, minerals, and rare mutagenics. Players can also attack humans by wreaking havoc along the coast, destroying yachts and ships, and knocking people off jet skis.As the player gains enough nutrients, the shark will unlock new abilities and increase in size, which allows the shark to take on larger and deadlier creatures. The shark will slowly evolve into an adult megalodon, and players can acquire advanced upgrades and customization options such as external bone plates and electromagnetic spikes to further enhance the shark’s combat abilities.
Playing as the shark, players can freely explore an open world, which consists of seven regions. Players can discover hidden locations and complete side objectives. Each region will also have its own apex predator which may kill the shark. Defeating these predators include alligators, giant squids, killer whales, and even other sharks will earn the player special skills. The world is reactive. As the shark creates more havoc, human Bounty Hunters will be dispatched to hunt down the shark. If the shark manages to kill the ten lead hunters, which are named characters, it will receive additional rewards The game is narrated by the host of an in-game reality TV show titled Maneaters vs. Sharkhunters (voiced by Chris Parnell), who guides the player throughout the game.
