My opinion

This game is alright, as Moby dick is hard and a little bit unpridicatable which makes him hard to fight as when I move from one spot another spot, as he trys and attact me. As I can see why there is a medal for winning and winning with over half of your life. The range isn't far making it at times hard to get a hit on dick, whats with that I thought fisher men can through futher than that. As also the spikes make it a little bit difficult, but that isn't bad, as it helps you be more aware. I will say that the animation is good but not excellent and the voice work for Ahab is convincing and a litle humories. I think it's just me but this game seems to have a simular game play to Castlevania X on the SNES, as Ahab is on planks moving to try and attack whilst the whale attacks you, makeing you fall in the water, not being able to use your weapon instead of killing Ahab. This is what I think any way. Its a good game, just needs a little tweeking, like make the range a little longer, and it makes me want to beat this game, just like Ahab wanting to kill the whale.

Challenging, but still entertaining.

I actually enjoyed this. Moby Dick was a difficult opponent but not to the point it became frustrating. Once you've learned all his attacks, it actually becomes a pretty epic fight.
The animation is average, the music is great, and Ahab's voice acting I personally found hilarious.
As others have said, the jumping is a little irritating, as Ahab floats as if he was on the moon.
Nevertheless, this is a difficult but enjoyable game.

awesome

dude, this game is great. It is challenging and requires skill in order to win and not just button mashing. It is one of those dodge type games which i enjoy so much.
sneeman i completely agree with you on every aspect.

these comments make me sad.

simply because you won the award tons of people flocked to this game. most of these kids grew up with there call of duty. this game is great. and i found that not being 13 years old really helped me to beat this game.

i feel extra bad that your rating is partly due to the hardness and the slow jumping speeds rather then the quality and the challenge of the game.
