A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Hungry Shark 2 is a bloody arcade game. While it's fun to roleplay as a shark, the blood and attacks on humans (and penguins) are too intense for young players. Players can connect to leaderboards that ask them to create a username and submit an email address, plus state and country info -- though players can skip those steps.

Is it any good?
For a low-priced app, there's not a lot to complain about with HUNGRY SHARK 2, but it's not a game that's going to wind up on your most-played list. It's a fun diversion for older kids, but the gameplay gets repetitive quickly -- boiling down to keep eating or you die. The graphics are nice and the sound effects that accompany each kill are fine, but even those get old after time. It might be a fair price for two games (the first Hungry Shark comes bundled with purchase), but ultimately Hungry Shark 2 is a one-trick pony.
