'JAWS Unleashed' (PS2) Joins Greatest Hits Lineup

Amity Island is growing, making corporate connections with prestigious companies like Environplus to improve the Island's economy. Unfortunately the increased population around the Island and recent industrial activity has also attracted YOU--one of Earth's most fearsome creatures--a Great White Shark. When the Environplus CEO’s son falls prey to your deadly attacks, the CEO hires renowned shark hunter Cruz Ruddock to track and kill you. Meanwhile, Marine Biologist Michael Brody tries to capture you for research. Can Ruddock and Brody stop you from causing havoc and killing more people before the 4th of July celebration?

"JAWS Unleashed is the first game in Majesco's product line to achieve this significant milestone," said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing for Majesco. "At only $19.99, this unique action title is a terrific value for consumers anxious to become one of nature's deadliest predators."

Developed by Appaloosa Interactive, JAWS Unleashed delivers a free-roaming experience in an underwater environment teaming with life. As JAWS, players will connect with the primal instinct to continually feed or risk starvation. JAWS can perform a variety of underwater, surface and air attacks to terrorize the island community and destroy everything in its path. In addition, gamers will enjoy the thrill of the hunt to the instantly recognizable John Williams score from the original film. More information about the game is available at the official site: www.jawsthegame.com.

Based on the popular bestseller by Peter Benchley, directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Richard Zanuck and David Brown, Jaws both fascinated and terrified audiences, breaking box office records upon its release in 1975. Filled with heart-stopping tension and stunning power, the powerful film launched director Steven Spielberg's phenomenal commercial success and won three Academy Awards: Best Sound, Best Original Score and Best Film Editing. In addition, the memorable score by John Williams won a Golden Globe Award for 'Best Score' and was named one of the Top 100 Films by the American Film Institute.

Jaws also introduced the predatory shark as a new cinematic icon and struck a primal chord with audiences who connected overwhelmingly with the film's mixture of action adventure, terror, and moments of hilarity. The impact was so enduring that audiences never looked at the water the same way again in this suspenseful story of an eastern seaboard community terrorized by a giant white shark.
