Just picked up the game I have been waiting for for what seems like forever. Here is some quick notes for anyone interested if the game is any good.
-The controls take some getting used to. You will be frustrated at first because until you get the hang of them, you won't seem to be able to control the shark well. Once you get the hang of things....lets just say being a shark near a beach is very fun -controlling the camera takes some getting used to as well -you seem to die occasionally when you can't figure out how it happened -what to do next isn't always 100% clear -the original jaws theme is in the game -nothing is more fun then busting through a diver cage or nailing a boat and sending some people in the water -being able to pick specific body parts on people and using stealth mode to drag people underwater so others are unaware of what happened never gets old -there is a very good tutorial at the beginning of the game -there are boss battles including an orca, and according to the enemy guide, salt water crocs, dolphins, morays are in the game -mako sharks are jerks -it is only 30 bucks
To summarize, after a slight learning curve, this game becomes very fun to play. If I had to rank it, I would probably go around the 8 or 8.5 outta ten range. If you have any questions I will try to answer them as best I can (note: I am only a couple levels in the game though)

The main story takes place 50 years after the original Jaws movie. You basically reak havoc around Amity Island. The first mission is to escape their research facility/sea world park. Then other missions are to attack boats, disrupt the oil business around the island and avoid capture or death. You basically cause as much damage as you can while avoiding capture by Brody's grandson (a marine biologist) and death at the hands of the corporate people whose businesses you are destroying and the mayor who wants revenge because you ate his son.

From what I've seen and played (very little at a friend's place) the game has a great premise, some very cool features, but just HORRIBLE camera angles and bugs. At one point, I didn't know where I was going, and then I got stuck to the side of a coral reef or something and the game just wouldn't let me get unstuck.
The gameplay is pretty fun. Stealth kills, launching tourists through the sky, and some of the races were a good time. The story is minimal (everybody wants to kill you), but a whole lot of action equals a fun time, as long as you can get over the fact that the camera sucks and the bug testers all apparently got drunk and never played the game itself.
