Maneater Free Download GAMESPACK.NET You start out your shark life roaming the fresh waters of a Louisiana bayou as a young pup (we’re mercifully spared any overt Baby Shark references) and the map almost immediately starts to reveal its surprising diversity. Across eight zones we see everything from the open sea to shallow and narrow waterways, and they’re all loaded with unexpectedly interesting stuff and interconnected with sewer pipe mazes and underwater caves. There’s weird submarine scenery galore and tons of pop-culture references to find, with gags about everything from Titanic to Stephen King’s IT to publisher and co-developer Tripwire’s own games littering the shores and seabed. Even out of the water there’s a ton to see, so it’s always worth cruising around on the surface for a while in each area. If you cause a lot of panic, hunters will board up. It starts quite harmlessly with some amateurs on jet skis, then there are hunting boats and enemies with guns. If they target you, you have to do an evasive roll to avoid being hit. You repeat this every two seconds. TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

These gulf waters are teeming with wildlife, most of which is beautifully rendered and animated. Aside from the very occasional glitch these other animals are almost soothing to watch as they lazily swim around, and seeing the shape of a big predator emerge from the murk can be chilling. Larger creatures even show damage as you gnaw on them in a fight, and I have to say that a huge alligator with all four limbs bitten off is somehow significantly scarier than a regular huge alligator. It’s like a massive, toothy murder-eel. Once you have reached your first evolution level, you can hunt humans for the first time . You sink pedal boats and grab the occupants or throw yourself ashore and grab a few crispy brown tourists there. This only works for a few moments before you have to go back into the water. It’s just a shame the journey from infant to megashark isn’t populated with a wider variety of activities. Like Hooper said, sharks just swim and eat, and that’s unfortunately not enough to fill even a short action-RPG like Maneater.

Otherwise, you quickly bless the temporal or look for your hail in flight. Once you grow into a full-grown shark, you make short work of these creatures, after which they upgrade and switch to dynamite. The circle of life. If you destroy enough hunters, you will sooner or later draw attention to special boss hunters who appear with a short cutscene and grant you further upgrades if you eliminate them. And so you take turns fighting boss fish and boss hunters, whistling a dozen mackerel in between and stumbling across one or the other hidden sight along the way, such as a drowned couple or a Cthulhu statue. How romantic! After about eight hours, the revenge story is over. For an action title without multiplayer, this is just about an acceptable playing time. The problem, however, is that after two hours at most you have already seen everything that Maneater has to offer. There’s a lot of appeal in growing from a little fish to a hulking leviathan, but there’s just not enough variation in the things you do along the way. American Truck Simulator

Eating 10 of something—humans, turtles, fish, seals, other sharks—is initially fun. Humans scream, animals struggle, blood fills the water and coats beaches and boats. Thrashing your shark’s head by wiggling the mouse back and forth while holding your prey quickly reduces them to a cloud of chum. But doing it again and again (and again), the gruesome novelty wears off quickly and it becomes a mindless exercise. There are quests to kill single large predators, too, like a gator, barracuda, or a fellow shark, and more difficult battles against apex predators like an orca in a Sea World-like arena and an ancient sperm whale based on Moby Dick. But combat and enemy AI in Maneater is pretty sloppy, and I eventually abandoned careful evasion and timed strikes when I discovered that just spamming my attacks worked far better. The orca boss wouldn’t pursue me when I went to eat fish to regain my health, meaning it was easy to whittle him down to bloody chunks. I defeated Moby Dick by ramming him into the sea floor, where he got stuck. Then I just floated there and slowly chewed him to death.

Human shark hunters show up when you begin terrorizing other humans, which gives you a GTA-like wanted level. And shark hunter bosses only arrive when you’ve driven up your threat level by killing loads of generic hunters. Most bosses, like Curtis, are just standard humans with a big gun, which I actually kind of appreciate. Once a human boss is in the world you can eat them just as quickly as you would any other person. It’s refreshing. A few bosses near the end have armored boats, depth charges, and better weapons, but working your way through the dozens of standard hunters to spawn the boss is more of a chore than defeating the actual human bosses themselves, and spamming attacks works as well on boats as it does on sea creatures. The rest of Maneater is all collectible-style activities: Find every hidden landmark, every sunken crate of drugs (helpful for mutations), every giant spinning license plate (because in Jaws, a shark ate a license plate, see).

These same activities are repeated in every new region you visit, and that’s mostly what you do in Maneater: Swim around looking for collectibles to check off your list while eating 10/10 various creatures when told to. While Maneater’s regions themselves are wonderfully diverse—from the shallow, murky bayou to the garbage-choked city rivers to the sprawling, sparkling ocean filled with marlin and massive sperm whales—the activities you do in them are not. At least the progression gained from these repetitive tasks freshens things up a bit. You can earn evolutionary mutations to cover your body with a bony exoskeleton and use a powerful battering ram attack, which was my go-to choice for smashing boats and torpedoing into enemy sharks. Another mutation lets you grow blue tendrils to shock your enemies and turn yourself into pure electricity to evade attacks, which certainly looks cool but wasn’t as effective as wearing bone armor and ramming things with my head. There are also passive abilities that can be upgraded to tinker with your build, like one that lets you survive longer on land—extremely useful for eating crowds of humans without having to jump back into the water to breathe.

These upgrades also demonstrate the lack of diverse activities in Maneater. The bone armor set is unlocked by killing apex predators, the bio-electric abilities come from defeating human hunter bosses like Curtis, but there’s also a shadow mutation set, which gives you a vampiric health-leech ability, a time-slowing skill, and a poison attack. The shadow set can only be unlocked by finding every hidden landmark in five different regions, a tiresome checklist task which kept me swimming and searching through regions long after I was ready to leave them behind and move on. There’s still a lot I love about Maneater. The environments are wonderfully detailed and a pleasure to examine in the few quiet moments between chewing through the same-y quests on your checklist. The look of your shark is fantastic, too—each little upgrade you make to her body results in her looking cooler and more monstrous, with the bone exoskeleton growing more fearsome and jagged and the electrical and shadow mutations slowly covering you with weird science-fiction cosmetics.

With the fully upgraded mutations, you really do look like a shark from a horror film, which is basically what you are to all those hapless golfers. The story of your shark’s life (and Scaly Pete’s) is provided by Chris Parnell of Saturday Night Live and Rick and Morty, and it’s an enjoyable series of smoothly delivered narration, one-liners, pop-culture references on everything from Waterworld to the Fyre Festival to Arrested Development, and even a few genuine shark facts thrown in. I laughed a number of times while playing Maneater: Parnell has a supreme talent for sounding officious and informative even when he’s spouting utter nonsense.

It’s also really novel to progress from a newborn baby shark to a meg, to grow not just in your abilities but in physical size. The hammerhead sharks and gators which once battered me mercilessly as a youngster eventually became a zero-risk food source, posing no more threat to me than a seal or turtle. Holding a creature in my mouth that once dwarfed me is a damn satisfying feeling, and that kind of size progression is rare in RPGs. Coming across each new animal as you move across the map’s zones is great, especially since it deliberately gives little to no regard to what animals would actually be at home in the Gulf of Mexico. However, one extremely odd omission stuck out to me: dolphins are one of the few animals with a reputation for ganging up on and beating back sharks, and they somehow didn’t make the cut in Maneater. I can understand why there are no giant squid or octopus in play, as that might be technically (tentacally?) challenging, but the absence of dolphins serves no porpoise.
