I'm guessing this wasn't what Nelly Furtado had in mind... Remember Jaws? Remember Sharks? Well, Tripwire Interactive manages to put a character-based spin on it with Maneater. Starting as a freshly-orphaned baby bull shark, your goal is to hunt other aquatic wildlife and grow big until you can finally exact revenge on Scaly Pete, your mother's killer. Explore seven open-world regions, each of which has an apex predator that can kill you, but who's defeat will earn you special skills. As you wreak more havoc, bounty hunters will be dispatched to end you. Show them the mistake of underestimating a full-grown bull shark.
