4.0 out of 5 stars Embrace The Essence of Wildlife Photography October 21, 2009
By John
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to admit, I was a little worried that this game would be somewhat like, well, what many people write it off as being, without giving it a second look, and that is boring and pointless. After playing it, I am relieved that it is such a good experience for anyone interested in wildlife cinematography and photography.

For those of you interested in photography, here's a little insight into the level of sophistication the game has to offer. The game allows you to accumulate and upgrade cameras and purchase lenses. It does a great job of creating depth of field changes with aperture settings, and you have shutter speed settings that affect exposure and motion blur as in real world cameras, and there are priority modes or even full manual settings that can be played around with, with realistic results in your photographs. There is enough devotion to real life photgraphy put into the development of Afrika to make it a gem on that premise alone.

Here's a tip to keep in mind -- patience is rewarded, as you will realize that the new cameras and lenses you unlock and purchase are dramatically improving the quality of your photos. The beginning camera takes lousy pictures and it would be sad if people didn't realize that the game intends the quality to start out poor, just like in the real world starting out with cheap cameras.

As the game begins, you choose your character and start out at base camp with a laptop, camera, binoculars and GPS. You get emailed requests to take specific types of pictures and you are on your way, driving here and there with a guide. Gameplay is more like an animal watching sim than anything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding for what is intended November 1, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've never written a review on Amazon before for any item. I feel incredibly compelled to do so for this game, "Afrika". A lot of reviews from "gaming" websites and magazines have given this experience a less than favorable score for it's gameplay. Folk's, let me make this short and sweet. There is a wealth of information on the animals you will encounter during this game that is presented in an easy to use an entertaining fashion within the software. The graphics on each animal are top notch and the sound makes you feel as if you were indeed in Africa. If you enjoy exploring the world's creatures from within your living room, (with a beverage of your choice, for relaxing...hint...is this thing on?) then purchase this title and help to ensure another one will follow. I've been a gamer since the days of Pong, (ok, so I'm not in my 20's, jeeze!) so please trust in my opinion that if you want the experience that you hope this is, you will get it in spades. Do not believe these websites that seem to have one type of gamer review every type of game. Rant over!! Thanks for reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars relaxing!! October 24, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Hello all, well ill get a few things out of the way, i like action adventure games with or without the blood is fine by me, i also like shooters and survival horror (just read all my reviews). When i first heard about afrika back when the ps3 was just launching i thought "wow that sounds dumber than all hell" and it kinda slipt my mind for along time. One day while trying to get demons souls imported i came upon a deal of buy 3 get free shipping (seeing as how the were coming from asia couldnt pass up) so i got demons souls (fantastic) ratchet and clank quest for booty (on a disc and in english) and Hakuna Matata (afrika). At the time i picked these up the only one definetly coming to the u.s. was ratchet so i figured what the heck if i didnt like afrika id sell it. well this game is not leaving my collection.

the pros are

+graphics are really good
+gameplay is rewarding
+its a relaxing break from violence

the cons are

-no voice whatsoever
-none violent (a monkey ran infront of my jeep and brought me to a dead stop)
-if you dont like animals or photography its not for you.

those are the majors for me but i look at it like this,

sometimes i can only play while kids are sleeping and you dont need the sound for this.
my daughter like to watch me play and she is learning from the info in this game as am i.
again no violence means i can play while they watch.

overall i think its a fantastic experience and while it isnt my most favorite game atm i do put it in regularly to relax and unwind. Usually i go on a safari a day at least.

p.s. patience is a virtue in this game, youll see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wild dogs cry out in the night... November 7, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is such a classy and well done title. Playing this game is almost like watching a National Geographic documentary. You accept jobs via email from magazines on your handy laptop. (Take a picture of a hippo with it's mouth open, take a picture of a zebra head on, etc...) You are then paid based on how good the picture is. Closeness, focus, centered all figure into the judging. You have to be careful, many animals will charge and trample you!!!
It is both beautiful and fun, even if you're watching someone else play. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Silly and outdated.
A big disappointment. Landscape does not look like Africa.Missions are silly. No voice sound only text. Feels and looks like this game was produced in 1995.
