Picture this.

apocalyptic Tokyo. Something has happened, you dont know what. All you know is that there are no humans left. Only animals. This is where the game begins, you play as animals and you have to survive through the years and generations. You can eat to build up strength and not die . And you can mate with different females depending on your strenght, and different females will give you different numbers of offspring. Lets say a low level female mates with you and you get two babies instead of a high level female which gives you 4.

Now you start the game with a Pamaranian and a deer. ( I recommend the pamaranian as it eats meat while the deer does not.)

You can unlock different animals through unlocks in the game and different events, and from the playstation store. All crazy animals are found in this game from cats to velocerators, to beagals to a scared office worker.

Now I have had immense fun with this game. The graphics are nothing to write home about, but thi also being a fact that its a ps3 game and not a pc game, graphics don't really matter. Well what matters is the game-play, is it good?

Yes. It is. Its fun roaming around tokyo but you will mostly die at times because you have low hunger and there is no food in the district your in an walking is quite slow (trust me). but still, the feeling of living several years and evolving, becoming stronger are immensely fulfilling. Now i recommend this game to people lokking for something a bit unusual, its not the best game ever, but certainly not a bad game. buy it when you expecting a friend over as it has multiplayer ( I have not tried this so I can not say if it's good or bad )

now I want to hear if any of you games have played the game, if you enjoyed it or not? or if you don't have it will you buy it? why or why not?

Got this on its first day. Spent a lot of hours on survival, but haven't finished the story.

Great, unique game.

-Grazers are good to play as if you want a challenge (try the chick).
-multiplayer is fun if you're both predators.

I wanted this game but never got it. It looked so cool and different.
To anyone who has played the game: what's the story like? Is it good? Interesting? Sad?
Thanks

well I havent played much of the storyline, I have mostly played the survival mode (Which is superfun). All I know from the campaign is that you play a pomaranian and try to survive and there is some backstory I think, which os presented in "collectibles".or better said they are hidden notes as much as I have observed.

The story mode lets you play as the different animals in the game. It's like a cut-up version of survival (with a few objectives and some cutscenes) It starts with the Pomeranian, I'm currently in the Hyena's story. You'll need to play the survival mode to unlock other levels though, but that isn't a bad thing since survival mode is the game's main mode.

Thanks for the info, guys. I just purchased and downloaded this game tonight
I'm excited to get started, hopefully the tutorial mode explains things well, since the download game does not come with an instruction manuel

But the game is very difficult My God, they sure ramp-up the difficulty quickly. I wanted to own everything as a giraffe but I kept dying because of lack of food (stupid giraffe has such low hunger).

Check the map often to see which areas have lots of food. You have to keep moving. More so because you're using a grazer. Don't rush changing generations unless it's in the challenges. Best to have fun at first and play as predators.

The map shows me which areas have a lot of food, but the mini-map is so small that I often ran in circles and died before finding anything to eat. It's a lot easier with the predators; I already unlocked the cat and beagle :D
However, the larger predators are very difficult to get away from (I've already had run-ins with a pride of lions >_>). It'd be nice if the mini-map showed a difference between small and large predators, as it just shows them all as green dots, so you don't know what you've got until it's too late.
Have you made it to 100 years, yet? I'll try with the bigger predators, when I unlock them.

Had the same problems when I first played. I haven't reached 100 yrs. yet because, much like ikano1, I get sidetracked by the other games I play. Heh. My highest is Pomeranian or Beagle, 60-something years I think. I forgot. Can't and won't say I've mastered the game, but I might as well help out.


A few tips:

Here's some (not comprehensive) tips I've compiled:

- Don't try for a 100 year run with the starting animals. It's possible, but it's also unlikely you'll succeed without a lot of grinding and/or good items.
- Stats have a hard cap, so don't grind for too many generations with the starters either...unless you really adore grinding. Use animals with better starting stats, grind some generations with those, and then go for your 100 year runs.
- Large animals (too large for the Sewers) can be tough to survive with, because they can't run for the sewers when nearly everywhere get polluted.
- Don't underestimate the usefulness of items like the Headlamp. In this case, it greatly expands your viewing range at night, and makes it easier to avoid getting ambushed. Just be sure to take it off during the day, so it doesn't get damaged needlessly. For what it's worth, having a bright light on your forehead does not make you easier to spot...
- If you see a challenge that requires you to mark a certain territory, you can sometimes mark it in advance, and just wait for the timer to advance. Instant challenge complete. Just make sure you don't mate before then, since mating resets all your marked territories.
- Around year 40, it's in your best interest to head for the sewers. The water there will always be polluted, but the animals and plants you can find are safe (unless you just chased them down from above...) You can survive and mate there for a few generations, at least until things get better up above.
- Carrying food (hold circle instead of tapping it to eat) can be useful in two ways: You can drop it as a distraction, and of course you can eat it yourself, if you don't wait too long to eat.
- Always crouch into stealth mode (hold L2) while eating. Not only do you eat faster, you're less likely to get spotted while doing so. This works for both grazers and predators. Carrying your food into tall grass has the same effect, but is even safer.
- Right after you make a stealth kill, you're vulnerable to counter attacks as you chomp on your victim. But if you time it correctly, you can dodge (right stick) quickly after the stealth kill connects, and be in a better position to strike again repeatedly. As long as your stamina holds out, you can get in a good series of attacks.

Thank you guys so much for the tips
However, I have another question... how does one get to the sewers/underground? I keep reading about going there, everyone keeps saying it, but I've never managed to get down there. Where is it located, exactly? And are there enemies/food down there?

Thanks

The ones in the northwest lead to a different underground area than the ones in Shibuya. You can use Shibuya Suburbs' underground to get back to Shibuya Station (the station's manhole is blocked at the start if I remember correctly.) I don't go underground much unless I'm being chased by a bigger predator. There's food, but the amount is random. Just like above ground.


I encircled the manholes.
