Vook's writes: "Deadly Creatures is an unorthodox take on the action adventure genre that combines gorgeous atmospheric levels, involved combat, non-traditional storytelling and two of the most atypical heroes ever seen in a video game. It is squarely aimed at the traditional gamer and manages to closely follow tried-and-true gameplay styles, while introducing new elements that easily manage to set it apart from similar games. Players will instantly feel at home with the game system, but will be constantly surprised at the variations available due to the nature of the protagonists. There are some slight technical issues that sometimes get in the way of the fun, but these never impact too badly on the game. Deadly Creatures is a brave effort from publisher THQ and developer Rainbow Studios and shows that inspiration can come from the lowliest and smallest of places."
