Description

Maneater is an action role-playing game developed and published by Tripwire Interactive. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on May 22, 2020, and is scheduled to be release for the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 in November 2020 at their respective launch dates, and for the Nintendo Switch in the first half of 2021. In the game, the player assumes control of a female bull shark who must evolve and survive in an open world so she can take revenge on a fisherman who had disfigured her as a pup and killed her mother.

The game is an action role-playing game played from a third-person perspective. In the game, the player assumes control of a baby bull shark who must take revenge on a shark hunter named Scaly Pete, who killed it’s mother and disfigured it. The shark has several basic attacks, including charging into enemies, siloing out of the water and whipping enemies with it’s tail to stun them. It can also use it’s surroundings for combat advantages, such as using a swordfish as a spear. The shark needs to hunt and consume other aquatic wildlife such as fish and turtles in order to obtain nutrients, namely proteins, fats, minerals and rare mutagenics.

Players can also attack humans by wreaking havoc along the coast, destroying yachts and ships, and knocking people off jet skis. As the player gains enough nutrients, the shark must enter underwater grottos to unlock new abilities and increase in size, which allows the shark to take on larger and deadlier creatures. The shark will slowly evolve into an adult megalodon, and players can acquire advanced upgrades and customization options such as external bone plates, shadow armor, and electromagnetic spikes to further enhance the shark’s combat abilities.

Reviews

 

Maneater’s monster-shark feeding frenzy is fun but simple, and that lack of depth causes it to become repetitive as time goes on.

 

It looks great, but the fun and novelty of being an eternally hungry shark wears off quickly.

 

Fun game to relax and spend some time. It is short – like 8-10h to complete fully and there is nothing to do once you competed all objectives and get all collectibles, but those 8-10h will be full of fun and action.
