E3 09: Hands-on with Afrika photo
E3 09: Hands-on with Afrika
by Dale North

People were quick to call Sony's Afrika a high-resolution Pokemon Snap without the Pokemon. I can appreciate that: Both games have animals (or animal-ish things) that run around a field, and both have game play that involves players snapping a virtual picture of moving subjects. But Afrika has so much more depth that it's almost wrong to even joke about comparing the two. Or, go ahead and joke.

I'd say that Afrika would appeal more to camera buffs. Or animal buffs. Or photorealistic videogame buffs.  Or people that like to watch violent animal takedowns.

Afrika is making its way to North America

Hakuna Matata, bitches! The PS3's candid animal photography game, Afrika, has been stuck in Japan for far too long. We here in the West have been begging to take photographs of zebras for well over a year, with neither Sony n...

Epic overkill: the music for Afrika is mindblowing!
