Sneak King is an adventure game title from Burger King for the Xbox and Xbox 360 video game consoles and developed by Blitz Games and published in 2006. Burger King sold the game with the purchase of value meals. It is one of three titles released by Burger King, the other games being Big Bumpin' and PocketBike Racer.
Despite the game being released for both the original Xbox and Xbox 360, there is only one version of the game disc, and it can be played on both the Xbox and Xbox 360.
Players take control of Burger King's mascot The King, in a stealth food-delivery themed game that spans four unique levels based on Burger King's own commercial advertisements.
Why it sucks
- This game, along with its repetitive gameplay, is a rip-off of the Metal Gear Solid series, all you do is sneak by a person and give them a Burger King meal.
- The box art is very misleading as it gives off an image that this would be a horror drama game about The King "sneaking" in a dark forest, when in theory it's all about The King giving Burger King meals to people in daytime levels, although there are times in the game where you will be doing some points of sneaking.
- Poorly integrated title screen, you can clearly see that they used a live-action shot of The King holding a plate that has a note that reads "Sneak King".
- The dialogue and its box are white, making it impossible to read the text.
- There are only three options.
- Ugly character models; all of them look like something out of an early PlayStation 2 game.
- On that topic, outdated and terrible graphics that also look like something out of an early PlayStation 2 game. Even Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), as outdated and bad as it is, had much better-looking graphics.
- Reused character models.
- The levels are the exact same.
- The missions themselves are also the exact same.
- After getting to a person, and if you hit the bar that is full or almost full, The King will do a very goofy dance that lasts for ten seconds.
- Stupid concept, but at the same time, kind of a creepy concept; if you were walking along the path, and then all of the sudden some guy in a King suit jumps out of a hiding place, does a little dance and gave you a Burger King meal, how would YOU react?????
- Much like PocketBike Racer, you can get achievements out of nowhere and also like Pocketbike Racer, you can only get up to twelve achievements and 200 gamerscore.
- If you get caught, you have to start that mission all over again.
- Unchallenging difficulty.
- Despite this game being very short, as there are only four levels, there are a grand total of 20 missions on each level to complete.
- Game-breaking bugs that can cause to game to be a bit unfair at times.
- Lots of technical issues, which reflect how poorly made this game is.
- Lots of humor.
- The soundtrack is admittedly decent.
- The source material is fair.
- It presumably increased Burger King sales.
- Very cheap, it costs only $3.99.
