Flame suit on, but I think I may prefer a JP-style game where the IP is just a springboard rather than a game based solely on the movie.
Jaws, as a film, worked because of the incredible acting, pace and suspense. Jeannot Szwarc directed Jaws 2 and had to face the same questions we’re asking: How do you match or top the original? The answer is: You don’t.
He showed the shark constantly. He knew the audience had already seen it. There was no need to tease it. Instead, the sequel focused on the action and the horror element. It’s not a classic movie, but it knew what it was. I think the creative team (hopefully) behind Jaws knows and understands this.
Anyway, if you’re a buyer of a Jaws pinball machine, you’ve seen the movie. It’s not going anywhere. The game should focus on the shark, shark attacks and Amity Island. Show us something new with a 50 year old movie.
