Genre: Action/ Adventure/ Platformer (2D)

Graphics & Sound:

With a 3D accelerated card, like I have, this game looks -awesome-. Fully 3D graphics with old-school 2D gameplay, Tarzan Untamed is the best of both worlds. The player models are sharp and clean, and the FMVs are direct from the movie, it seems. Very nice.

The sounds are appropriately jungle-y, with the music being either actual songs from the movie or MIDIfied versions of it. And the voice acting is great, because it seems like it’s the actual people from the movie. Tarzan excels in all areas of graphics and sound.


This is old-school platform goodness with plenty of spiffy new features. Get ready for your “generic” side-scrolling platformer stages, your surfing on trees stages, your Crash Bandicoot-esque being-chased stages... all the fun you like in platformers is rolled into one game. The controls are tight, even when you’re just playing with the keyboard, although it has a habit of not reading a left or right arrow immediately after a jump. You learn to compensate, though. You use fruit as a weapon -- until you get the knife, and then you can slice your enemies up. This game is really, really fun. I popped it in, expecting to find it to be “just another kid’s game,” and ended up neglecting my other games for this one. That’s always a Good Thing, and this game has oodles of solid gameplay. It may not be the most original gameplay, but it’s mad fun nonetheless.


On normal, it’s relatively easy until you get later into the game, as any good platformer should be. There are other difficulty levels so that kids can enjoy the game as well as adults. Tarzan Untamed is very configurable, actually, and will offer gaming enjoyment for everyone.

Game Mechanics:

This game takes what’s good of all sorts of platformer games and combines it into pure gaming pleasure. It may not be the most original platformer, but it does everything very well. The graphics are lush, the gameplay is fast and furious if you put the difficulty up, and you’ll find yourself playing this game hours after your kids go to bed. Any platform game lover should pick Disney’s Tarzan Untamed up.
