Afrika 

 

Afrika is a very impressive game, and something I never expected from Natsume. Afrika in essence teaches players how to be a photo journalist in Africa. Players have a guide who drives them to locations, and then can get out of the jeep and try and get good shots of the animals. There are plenty of requests for things like a giraffe drinking. The coolest thing about this Playstation 3 (PS3) game is it rewards patience. The animals will come back to the watering hole if you are standing still, or hidden (like in a bush, or behind a tree).

The level of realism in the visuals of Afrika is very high. The graphics are extremely impressive. Afrika is one of the best games I have ever played (editor: note we focus on family friendly titles). Characters dress appropriately, and look like they are on safari. With all of that praise, you had to know there would be some down side. Carnivores will attack herbivores. This is where the blood and violence come into play. If you have ever seen animals in real life or on television then you know what to expect.

The music in Afrika is exceptional. It fits the theme of this game, and really made me feel like I was in Africa. I got into the educational aspect of this game where so there was so much information about so many different animals. Afrika gives the player a lot of good training about how to be a successful photographer. I took some photography classes when I was younger, and feel this game is as good as those classes.

Afrika contains sixty animals, and one hundred missions. There are also a lot of Sony cameras to be purchased in Afrika. You earn money by taking a picture of an animal the first time, and then completing missions.  If photography interests you in the slightest you will find your money well spent on Afrika (editor: as long as you have a PS3).

Afrika controls really well. Once you make it through the tutorial you have a lot of options available to you. I found that the level of realism in how animals behave is high in this PS3 game. Zebras will run away if you get too close, and hippos will charge you. In the wild this could lead to injury or death. The cameras also function as they would in the real world. I had fun playing Afrika.

I have always enjoyed learning about God’s creation. Afrika teaches so much about various animals that it deserves to be noticed. I would love to see sequels to this game, maybe an Amazon version. I will be recommending this game to friends, family, and pastors.
