Presentation is one of the game’s stronger aspects. Most of the graphical detail shows up on the shark, making it one of the better looking and animated sharks I’ve seen in a game. Underwater environments look just as good, though the frame rate absolutely tanks when too many objects are on the screen. Above water, things aren’t as bright. Humans are blocky and the environments are less than appealing. There are also a number of sloppy animations that look really unpolished when compared to the shark’s animations.
With the exception of the “Star Wars” fanfare, “Jaws” (the movie) features one of the most widely known movie scores ever. Jaws Unleashed, however, contains a score that is cheesy to the point that it is outright forgettable. Yes, you still have familiar strains from the original soundtrack, but the orchestration isn’t the original and it really shows. Outside the music, there isn’t much here except for really bad voice acting and generic sounds.
