Jumanji The Videogame PC Full Version
After about 12 years, the video game developers have decided (again) to make a video game based on one of all-time best movie franchises ‘’JUMANJI!!’’. Prior to this back in 2007, there was a Jumanji game on Playstation 2 and a PC game back in 1996.
Jumanji: The Videogame is based on the new Jumanji movies, which are Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungle (2017) and Jumanji: The next level which is scheduled to release this December.
This new Jumanji game will be released for the next-gen gaming consoles like Playstation 4 and Xbox-One. There is no official news about the features of this game by the developers, but we could get a swift idea about its gameplay and features based on its teaser and a short gameplay trailer.
Gameplay and Features
The gameplay as seen in the trailers looks like that from the vintage Playstation 2 games like Total Overdose and also shares some resemblance with Fortnite. You could see Dwayne Johnson walking and you would think that this highly resembles Ramirez Cruz from Total Overdose, except that they made him highly buffed up.
The graphics in the game look cartoon-ish as in the games like Jackie Chan adventures where the Ninjas from Dark Hand used to disappear with a puff whenever Jackie defeats them. So the game resembles cartoon violence to some extent.
The shooting mechanism in the game gives over the shoulder view just like in Grand Theft Auto 4, but the projectile makes strange color effects while hitting the enemy, making the graphics more cartoon-ish.
The aim of the game appears to collect crown jewels of Jumanji and fight their way to recover the Jaguar’s eye. There might be some boss battles as well on the way.
The different characters also resemble to have unique special abilities, just like in the movie. Like, The Rock (Spencer) has enormous strength judging from the way he does uppercuts during gameplay and Martha, does dropkick while fighting enemies as she knows martial arts, etc.
It is not clear whether this game will have a multiplayer feature or not, but if it does, it will make the game more fun to play.
Overall the game is good if you’re looking for those buttons mashing, cartoon violence cliché games, like Final Fight in the arcade. But if you’re expecting it to have a high amount of details along with stunning graphics and gameplay then it is definitely not for you.
My personal opinion on this game is that it is just like any vintage buttons mashing game like in Playstation 2, there’s no point in making this game for next-gen consoles like Playstation 4. Moreover, if they are trying to develop a game based on Jumanji movies, it shouldn’t have cartoon graphics as depicted in the trailer. It should have a real-life depiction of characters, and to make it playable for all audiences they could just delete the blood and gore from the game, similar to Batman Arkham games.
Finally, if you’re looking to buy this game to enjoy with your family or if you are a Jumanji fan, or if you want to present it to someone younger, you could definitely go for it without any hesitation whatsoever. But if you are more into games with real and stunning graphics like Grand Theft Auto 5, this game is not for you.
