This is the classic eat or die kind of game.First of all there are teeth and when your victim who is a fish or human there is blood that stains the water.Which you can up the blood with the blood bath update which is1.99. Or you can watch promo videos for other games which can be iffy. Also when you eat a human they will loose a leg and you can see body parts floating (which eventually disappear)in the water. Last when you eat something it will say something like bikini bate or catch of the day. There are also girls with bikinis on which are not inappropriate.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 8+

Useless for all ages if it won't run properly. Dont waste money!

Since the recent December 2010 upgrade,this app won't run on a large number of iphones and FGOL won't return the money. Best avoid wasting money on this until FGOL have promised that they've sorted-out the recent gremlin.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (6 ):

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.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
