he Apex Predators aren't much better, simply being larger versions of the creatures of the deep that you've encountered before. Encountered alligators in the bayou? Well, get ready to fight a bigger alligator as the boss. Tore through barracuda near the golf course? Here comes a bigger barracuda. On and on it goes until you simply resign yourself to the endless purgatory of button mashing to make a battle go that much faster. Don't get us wrong, watching your shark grow from a "toddler" to a "megalodon with bone fins and electric teeth" is a sight to behold, but it ultimately doesn't feel worth the repetitive hours that one has to put in, to say nothing of the game-crashing glitches you may encounter along the way as we did. The idea of playing as a giant shark is a good one, but Maneater just isn't able to capitalize on it.
It simply shifts the shark in the direction of the closest foe, even if it is not your intended target. Please don’t utilize this feature! Unfortunately, Maneater does not have very much post-game content or replayability, but it’s a tremendously epic, over-the-top open-world action RPG where you dominate the ocean as an apex predator, gaining new and improved bio-adaptations as you rank up. Kindly do yourself a favor and play it!
Maneater is a pretty decent take on the open-world action-adventure RPG formula that GTA has popularized. While some of its elements feel quite lacking, many of what it has to offer is pretty well-done and entertaining. It’s definitely worth trying for fans of GTA-style games who are looking for something especially different.
