Product Description

Product Description

Experience intense strategic action while battling as the Meccaryns, the Sea Reapers or Kabuto: this island isn't big enough for the three of them! Kabuto is too large, too brutal and too hungry to co-exist with any other living creature. Kabuto shows the other two races that he's at the top of the food chain.

Giants: Citizen Kabuto is an odd little game. It takes place on a small island populated by short, big-headed people who speak with Scottish accents. They are called Smarties. Out to sea the evil Sea Reapers plot to retake the island for themselves, and they've created a 30-foot-tall monster named Kabuto to help them with their task. To this world come the Meccarins, a trio of humanlike spacemen who wear powered armor and have jetpacks. They arrive and befriend the Smarties against the Sea Reapers, and Kabuto breaks free from Sea Reaper control. All heck breaks loose.

Giants was developed by Planet Moon Studios, an offshoot of the wacky Shiny Entertainment studio that brought us Earthworm Jim and Sacrifice. It shows. The between-mission movies are hilarious and filmed inventively (using the game's graphics) throughout. You begin by portraying the Meccs as they puzzle out the new world and help people. Next you portray Delphi, a sexy sorceress Sea Reaper, and finally you get to walk in the massive footsteps of Kabuto himself. The game plays with arcade style; before you're done you'll have flown around and fired weapons, conjured spells, participated in a jet-ski race or two, and eaten just about everything that moves as the giant himself. It's dizzying, it's fun, and you'll never forget you played it. (Note: not for kids--strong language, nudity, violence, and adult humor throughout). --Bob Andrews

Pros:

  • 3 different sides
  • Brilliant use of style and humor
  • You get to be a giant!
Cons:
  • Multiplayer isn't satisfying
  • A few crash bugs exist

This game shows up what OS X is really capable of doing. It is very beautifully rendered. It works much better with a 32 MB Video card but works Ok with a 16 MB. It is very funny and exciting. I highly recommend this game. It is a great value for the money.

Great game but doesn't work on newer Macs. I bought this game from somewhere else, tried to load it and a window pops up saying that powerpc isn't supported anymore. Did some research online and found that "Mac OS X 10.5, aka Leopard, will be the end of the line for those with Macs that use PowerPC processors". So if you have anything newer past this version of OS X, do NOT buy this game, it will NOT work on your Mac.

About the game: it is AWESOME. I remembered playing it as a kid and was reminiscing one day and decided to buy it, only to be disappointed that it won't work on my Mac. So...I guess I will have to buy a PC (up to XP) or PS2 just so I can play this game again. Yeah. Its JUST that great of a game.

I hope this review helped someone! Cheers :)

I just bought this game and my breath has simply been taken away! The graphics, story, and gameplay all work together to make a playing experience unlike any other. No other game on the Mac comes close, and believe me, I have them all. The game is really addictive and hilariously funny as well! Anyone who doesn't have it is really missing out. Anyway...back to the game ;)

This game is fantastic. Fun, funny, and challenging. Not to easy that you finish it in one sitting. I've been playing for almost a month and it still has me interested. The only reason it is not 5 stars is that you cannot save save the game in the middle of missions. Some of the missions take an hour or more of playing and if you stop mid-way you have to start all over again the next time you play.
As for nudity, my version has the female characters in a bikini. I read that they changed the graphics to get rid of the nudity.

This game is stunning! Graphics are GREAT. It is very easy too lose track of time. Story line is very funny. If you dont have a 5-button mouse yet this game is a good reason to get one. This game only runs on MAC OS X so all you OS 9 users will have to update your system software.
