When I was an avid gamer I used to purchase X BOX Live Arcade games constantly just to clock up gamer score and achievement points. When X BOX first came out there wasn't really much choice on the live arcade games so I think I eventually ended up purchasing them all. This was one I purchased quite early as I liked the sound of the game.
The game itself is really simple - you basically start as a small fish and have to engage fish smaller than you to eat them. The fun part is as you eat more fish your fish grows so you can start to eat bigger fish and eventually consume things like sharks and whales! The game is situated on one screen and you use the control buttons to move around moving into smaller fish to consume them. The game can be purchased for 400 Micro$oft points.
I played a similar game before on new grounds so when I read the description of this on XBOX Live I snapped it up straight away and its definitley worth it. It will kill a few hours of any bodies time without even realising it.
It can become quite addictive eating the smaller fish and watching yours grow it has a child like arcade addictive twinge to it. Its the sort of game you can imagine in an arcade years ago that you would slot coins in to play. It has a really nice arcade feel to it.
Feeding Frenzy has a varied array of achievements.. There are ones that are endurance based which would take hours to gain like playing the game for 10 hours! Then there are ones you can gain by playing through the game like eating X amount of fish.
If you are an achievement whore then this is not really a game to get an easy 100% achievments on but you can easily clock up 50 - 100 gamer points and have some fun! I'd say the game is well suited for children due to its simplicity. This game is not to bad for a few hours but after that it can get a bit tedious and repetetive.
Status: New - "Feeding Frenzy" - Booker nominee Will Self's dazzling collection of ... more
journalism and writing. "Self often writes non-fiction as though it were fiction, topping off what we know as reality with the cream of his surreality". ("Guardian"). During the turbulent years of 1995-2000, Will Self surfed the great wave of olive oil which nearly swept British metropolitan culture away, and produced a series of restaurant reviews for "The Observer", whose coruscating criticality led to a cabal of restaurateurs plotting his contract killing. In essays to accompany the work of admired artists such as Marc Quinn, feature articles on rock music and remote places, reviews of cultural phenomena as diverse as voyeuristic television and the Queen Mother, Will Self has produced what can only be described as a cachinnating cacophony of wilful provocation. From the Booker-shortlisted author of "Umbrella", this virtuoso collection, which also includes interviews and musings on Salman Rushdie, Hunter S. Thompson as well as a quasi-autobiography of the author's relationship with London, will be adored by fans of Will Self's fiction and nonfiction. Will Self is the author of nine novels including "Cock and Bull"; "My Idea of Fun"; "Great Apes"; "How the Dead Live"; "Dorian, an Imitation"; "The Book of Dave"; "The Butt"; "Walking to Hollywood" and "Umbrella", which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. He has written five collections of shorter fiction and three novellas: "The Quantity Theory of Insanity"; "Grey Area"; "License to Hug"; "The Sweet Smell of Psychosis"; "Design Faults in the Volvo 760 Turbo"; "Tough, Tough Toys for Tough, Tough Boys"; "Dr. Mukti and Other Tales of Woe" and "Liver: A Fictional Organ with a Surface Anatomy of Four Lobes". Self has also compiled a number of nonfiction works, including "The Undivided Self: Selected Stories"; "Junk Mail"; "Perfidious Man"; "Sore Sites"; "Feeding Frenzy"; "Psychogeography"; "Psycho Too" and "The Unbearable Lightness of Being a Prawn
