Release Date: 
12/12/2005
Game Platform: 
PSP
Star Rating: 
4 out of 10
Much like the movie (and Jack Black with his shirt off), the Kong video game is a fun, furry, but ultimately flawed bit of monkey mayhem. Half the time it's an OK first-person shooter in which Jack throws spears at giant bugs, while the other half has Kong wrestling dinosaurs and swinging through the jungle like he's the Prince of Persia. But while the PSP version adds a two-player Co-op mode, it also has wonkier controls than its console cousin, which weren't great to begin with. When it comes to Kong games, Donkey is still king.
