this game is neither worth the time or the money. it is a great idea for a game though. i was lookin forward to this game, but it honestly looks like it was released between 2000 and 2002. Graphics, controls, game length are all a joke to this game. the only good thing about it is if you play for achievment points, in which case it takes about 6-8 hours to beat the game and get all the points possible. End result, im dissapointed. its a joke and shouldnt even have a rating at anything higher than 2.

I played the first two levels and I feel kinda depressed because I love the Man vs. Wild show. This game just had bad controls. The Quick Time Events, the graphics and the gameplay are all horrible. The graphics look like graphics from the Wii. It was just sad. Eating the poisonous millipedes and watching him throw up was kinda fun. And you can drink your own urine. It is qute easy.
I got to play the tutorial, but the game keeps locking up on me at the Rocky Mountains mission briefing screen, once it says "A - Continue".
Game is installed on my new Xbox360 Slim model HDD, with plenty of free memory on it.
Deleted the install, and tried playing the game spinning the disk: it did the same thing. It's a new copy too, from GameFly.
Deleted everything and started over. Locked up again the first time on Training, but then worked the next time I rebooted.
Then, the first part of The Rockies mission glitched on me; apparently I assembled the zip line (rope + rock chips) before I was supposed to. Grylls kept pointing me back to the tree where my parachute was, even though there was no rope to get. Sigh. Restart 1st misson all over again. Got half way through then quit for the day.
Next night I tried to play a little more, and the 360 locked up again at Rocky Mts mission briefing screen. Enough. Eject, game back in sleeve, sleeve back in cardboard, cardboard back in envelope. Seeya, broken game.
I loaded it onto my HDD, and it did so successfully, so it's not a disk issue. I've had absolutely no other problems playing any other games, and I have a library of over 100 Xbox360 games.
When it works, MAN VS WILD is probably an OK game, but certainly not one worth jumping through hoops in order to play.
