It's a Bug's Life or an Arachnid's Life as you switch between a tarantula and a scorpion in this 3D platformer. Sure, you go from point A to point B. You overcome obstacles by jumping, cutting, digging and web shooting. You also beat up certain bugs, spiders, scorpions, rats, lizards and other creatures. But there are a few good thing that separate Dangerous Creatures from the other 3D platformers. First, the camera is about as good as I've seen in some time. It rarely wanders about and instead keeps focus on where you're going to. Then, there's the layout. I like the view of the world from a very small creature. It's very immersing and I always had an urge to see what - and who - is around the next corner. The level design here is great. Deadly Creatures also gives a good reason to find the collectible items (in this case it's bugs). With every collectible bug you get, you restore some health. The unlocked artwork is also good to look at. But there are problems with this game. First off, you get into sections that get walled off and in order to move on, you have to find and kill certain enemies. This gets very aggravating in the bathroom section. The second, and larger, problem is the game's too short. I finished it in five to six hours on medium, and there's very little desire for me to give the game another go. If it were easy, the game would be over in four to five hours. At $50, this isn't a good deal since we are in the midst of a recession. Still, Deadly Creatures is one game you shouldn't pass up on. RENT IT.
