New Details For Shark Tale

Shark Tale, the videogame tie-in based off the upcoming major motion picture, is going to be washing up on retailer's shelves soon. Since that might not be soon enough, we're proud to provide new information about additional gameplay mechanics that have been revealed to tide gamers over until its release. It was already known that players would have to get jiggy with it, busting out some killer moves on the ocean floor. However, those who intend to play Shark Tale on either the PlayStation 2 or Xbox will actually get in the groove by using a dancing mat; such as those used for the Dance Dance Revolution series. It isn't yet known how complex or simplistic these various beats are going to be in Shark Tale, arguably the most important aspect when judging just such an addition. Odds are that since this game is appealing to the same demographic as the film these songs will not challenge extreme Dance Dance Revolution players, but rather they'll be geared toward the children whose incessant clamoring for this title will propel sales. Along with this new addition of dance pad supported gameplay, the preexisting elements - fish fighting, racing and adventuring - are all intact and will be present in the final addition of the game, along with the Urban feeling that comes with a bottom feeding fish working day to day in the underwater world of Reef City. Fish fighting offers some moves that are specific to Shark Tale. You'll launch verbal assaults on gelatinous jellyfish with smack talk, while unleashing some of that "Fish Fu" on a pretentious puffer fish. Of course, that's only a sushi-sized sample of the moves in Oscar's repertoire. He's got the ability to perform head butts, fin boxing and tail slaps, all of which can be used to take care of anyone who gets in the way of Oscar's rise to the top. The racing and adventure portions of the game appear extremely straightforward and come off as traditional in both their style and preparation. You can explore Reef City, while performing various tasks, from punching the clock at the local whale wash to exploring sunken liners. Racing looks to be high octane, while players will have to dodge various obstacles on the bustling streets of Reef City. It sounds like there's the possibility that there could be something there that provides even a glimpse of something new, but putting our faith in a telephone psychic's divination on the future of our love life seems like a safer bet. With all these various elements, it would seem that there is going to be plenty to do in Shark Tale to keep the player occupied for sometime to come. However, without sound development behind all these aspects, from racing through the streets of Reef City to fighting some foes with your ferocious "Fish Fu," this could be one of those games that would have been better off left in Davy Jones locker next to the Big Mouth Billy Bass and the Perfect Pancake Maker.
