Playing the game is easy. You control your animal with the left analog stick, jump with x, eat with circle, do a standard attack with square, do a more damaging attack with R1 and dodge with the right analog stick. Your 3 stats at the top of the screen are Life, Hunger and Stamina. When your life's out, you die. You can take damage from being attacked by other animals, and by your hunger meter reaching zero. The Hunger meter drops at a steady rate, and is only refilled when you eat another animal or plant, or if you manage to find a food item. Most of the time, finding food isn't too hard, but don't be surprised if you go through an entire area without finding anything. Using the dodge move takes up a little bit of stamina, and the meter refills on its own after a couple of seconds.Read more ›
"Tokyo Jungle" is a game where you play as an animal - carnivore or herbivore - in the overgrown, overrun city of Tokyo. It takes place in a future scenario where humans disappeared from the earth, and in their place the various animals of the city - former pets, zoo animals, and even genetic experiments - created their own ecosystem. This is certainly the game's most notable aspect. While it's easy to imagine a wildlife game set in the African savanna, where cheetahs chase after gazelles, throwing feral pets and farm animals into the mix - cats, dogs, goats, cows - gives the game a far more strange and unique feeling. The starting animal for the carnivore class, for example, is a humble Pomeranian.
The game's concept is simple enough: survive. Your animal must find food (whether plant or animal), avoid larger animals, and mark territory. It doesn't have a traditional narrative per se - the main mode is simply "survive as long as you can", with the constant ravages of hunger and other animals wearing down your own animal over time. Gameplay-wise, Tokyo Jungle is sort of an action/stealth game. Patches of grass grow all over the ruined city, and these are useful to both predators and prey. Predators can use the grass to launch devastating strikes from concealment, which can often be enough to fell even much larger animals. Prey, on the other hand, will have to use grass to hide from predators, though it's also possible to take down predators with whatever means the creature has available (horns, hooves, etc).Read more ›
My first response to this was, "A Pomeranian against a lion? You're kidding, right? That sounds like the stupidest game ever. How on earth could that be fun?"
I don't know how they did it, but they made that concept into the greatest game. I can play this for hours without getting bored. You can play as several different kinds of animals; from Pomeranians to bears, goats to giraffes, Akitas to zebras. Each time you complete the main mission on one animal, it opens a new animal, making the replayability of this game almost everlasting.
The longest I've managed to live out my generations so far is 76 years. I think it was on the Beagle.
The only negative I have is that I wish it had more diverse music, rather than the two or three tracks that it has. After a couple hours it starts to drone on and I end up needing to take a break - if it weren't for the music, I'd probably be naughty and play it all night.
If you like silly games like Katamari Damacy, I'd definitely recommend this one.

okay, call me crazy but when we read "Japanese Import" on the label, we figured all video games are imported from Japan anyway. Most words are in Japanese. Read morePublished on January 21, 2013 by P. B.
