Describing the game, the jury shared why they selected the game as Best of GC PS2: "Peter Jackson's King Kong shows how an intense game environment can be created when a game designer and movie director collaborate on a video game project. The action adventure game transports players inside the movie and allows them to see what's possible in a video game, in contrast to movies. The world in which King Kong lives seems so real and enthralling that players will do everything they can to survive." [More]
