Fun game for the entire family
on April 16, 2011
This is one of the games that require little thought, quick reactions, and a well-functioning mouse. The premise is that you use your mouse to control a little fish swimming in the ocean and have to eat smaller prey to grow bigger while evading the bigger predators that are out to eat you. It is very easy to learn and starts out slow, getting progressively faster and more difficult while introducing obstacles and bonuses along the way. There even is something of a storyline to pull the levels together until you finally confront a mysterious monster at the end. One tip: practice the tail bite maneuver on the bigger fish - your success will depend on it in the final stages of the game.
I had tested out both Feeding Frenzy and Feeding Frenzy 2 before settling on buying this one - the original Feeding Frenzy game did not run properly on my computer and seemed "jumpy" at times. This one runs smoothly on both Windows XP and Windows 7 and the game play principle is the same. It has pleasing graphics and is a cute and fun game that can be enjoyed by the entire family from preschool to seniors. When I brought it home for Christmas, it kicked off a friendly family competition to see who could top its highscore list. It can be a bit frustrating to play if your mouse doesn't work well and tends to get "stuck" every now and then since reaction speed and accuracy of movement is important, but I've been able to play it through even without a mouse just using the touchpad on my laptop. It's a nice game to relax with and wind down after a stressful day.
