Shark Tale has technically-solid, fun gameplay despite it clearly being developed for younger audiences which is likely to comprised of fans of the film. Like Shrek 2 before it, your overall enjoyment of the game will have much to do with your willingness to accept its target audience but at the very least you will find that Shark Tale simply isn’t a rushed, sure-money title.

If you loved the movie, enjoy funky retro dance music and contemporary hip hop, and want to experience some of the best computer generated undersea graphics to ever grace the Xbox, take Shark Tale for a swim. It’s definitely worth a rental and even earns a spot in your permanent collection when the price drops.

Die Story dreht sich um einen verrückten kleinen Fisch namens Oskar. Er ist ein kleiner Fisch mit echt großer Klappe und ständigen Problemen. Leider erhaltet Ihr am Anfang des Spiels kein einleitendes Intro. Welches den Spielern, die den gleichnamigen Film nicht gesehen haben, den Einstieg sehr erschweren wird. Auf jeden Fall wird verraten, Oskar schuldet seinem Chef eine Menge Klaffmuscheln, die ihr verdienen müsst. Außerdem will der kleine Oskar in seiner Heimatstadt (Riff City) einmal ganz berühmt werden. Es ist schon ein kleiner Anfang getan, indem Ihr einen vermeintlichen Sieg über einen Hai eingeholt habt. Nur das reicht noch lange nicht, um die skeptischen Bewohner von Riff City zu überzeugen. Zusammen mit ständigem Tanzen für die Berühmtheit, einer nie endenden Flucht vor Haien und Sammeln der kostbaren Muschelwährung, sind dies im großen und ganzen die Ziele im Spiel.

The main gripe I have with Shark Tale is that in some of the more fun game types (Dance, Fight, Dodge), you spend most of your time looking at icon prompts rather than taking in the gameplay. This means those not taking part will be more entertained than the actual player. There is no doubt a feeling of repetition, but it is disguised nicely by the various chapters. Once players get passed the camera adjustment, there is some fun to be had. There are 25 chapters in all, most of which don’t last very long. Shark Tale is a great weekend title and it provides some replay value for those kiddies looking to unlock all the extras. Those looking for advanced gameplay, should look elsewhere. Shark Tale is the perfect title for “game night” at the family household.

Gang De Requins est parfait pour passer un bon moment en apnée avec le poisson Oscar. Malheureusement, et comme toujours avec l'apnée, ça ne dure jamais très longtemps.

For those of you who may be thinking about purchasing this game for a son or daughter or brother or sister, or even niece or nephew for this holiday season, I would say that most kids will find the game to be a pretty enjoyable experience.

Shark Tale sets out with a specific target audience in mind, youngsters who enjoy the film looking to get a piece of the action. However, seasoned gamers and adults probably won’t get too much out of the simplistic gameplay and real lack of challenge.
IGN (Oct 06, 2004)
Shark Tale escapes the fate of most big-license games. It offers plenty of fun through various different game play styles and retains the hip style of the movie. Being a kid game, it lacks the depth and difficulty needed by the average gamer. Still, if you're one of those folks that loved the movie, the game is definitely worth checking out. It features spectacular underwater graphics, varied character design, humor and dancing fish.
GameSpot (Oct 12, 2004)
Objectively speaking, Shark Tale doesn't bring anything to the table that hasn't already been brought to it before--and sometimes in a grander fashion --in other adventure games. Nevertheless, this is a game that fans of the film will likely enjoy, first, because the diverse assortment of different levels keeps the hands-on experience fresh, and second, because so much of the actual footage, music, and dialogue from the movie has been woven so generously into the game.

Grosse Haie - Kleine Fische ist eine routinierte Leinwandadaption mit gelungener Präsentation und Soundkulisse, die aufgrund der simpel gestrickten Spielmechanik vor allem jüngere Spieler ansprechen dürfte. Allerdings sollten diese aufgrund des unausgewogenen Schwierigkeitsgrads und nerviger Kameraprobleme über ein solides Nervenkostüm verfügen, um an manchen Aufgaben nicht zu verzweifeln. Zudem ist der virtuelle Tauchgang trotz 25 Kapiteln recht schnell vorbei und trotz verschiedener Aufgabenstellungen nicht sehr abwechslungsreich. Meist bewegt ihr euch auf vorgegebenen Bahnen und müsst lediglich im richtigen Moment ausweichen, zuschlagen oder abbiegen. Die an Findet Nemo erinnernden Erkundungsabschnitte sind hingegen ganz unterhaltsam und auch die später etwas friemeligen Tanzeinlagen sorgen trotz fehlender Mehrspieleroption für willkommene Abwechslung.

The replay value on offer in Shark Tale is very low. Once you pass through the entire game you probably won't want to go back and experience it again, unless you're a fanatic follower of the movie. Nevertheless, Shark Tale is certainly worth diving into for a wet and welcome visit, but you'll probably want to step from the surf and towel off before too long lest your skin takes on that weird prune-like texture.

Now, for the record, I just don’t like this game, and this had been a tough experience for me to write this review. I don’t like to blatantly slag anything, especially when I can’t give entirely valid reasons for doing it. I tried to like it, I tried to get my kids to like it (and believe me, it’s sad when you kids ask you if they can stop playing video games and go do something else), but it’s just so hard for me to warm up to this game for some reason. Maybe it’s the sloppy game play, lack of understandable plot, unlikable characters, or probably a combination of those things and more. I also haven’t seen the movie, so it’s very possible that I’m missing a lot here. But with all that said, I’m sure that there are people out there that will really get a kick out of this, and if you think you’re one of them, then ignore everything I’ve just said.
