In the murky depths of the ocean, the fate of Reef City lies in the fins of one little fish--at least that's what he wants you to think. Dive into the underwater metropolis of Shark Tale and play as Oscar, a fast-talking fish whose little fib gets him into big trouble. Based on DreamWorks' animated film, Shark Tale features 25 missions that will have you exploring Reef City, racing through the coral, fighting Fish Fu and great white sharks, and dancing to the sounds of hip-hop tracks.


Broken Screenshot

When pausing the game, the game fails to show a screenshot from before you paused. Fixed by disabling Store EFB Copies to Texture Only.


  • Newspaper slide cutscenes freeze, though the audio does not. A 'shadow' of the character is seen animating like it should behind the frozen image in the cutscene.
  • Sometimes the music refuses to play, while the sound effects (fish screaming, destroying objects, etc) continue to play properly

Fixed some time after 4.0-4480 and before 5.0-2877.

Unknown Revision Intel Core i3-370M ATI HD Mobility Radeon 5650 In-game cutscenes render properly, though audio can be a little choppy. The game actually runs very well, even phenomenal at times, but the fact that it crashes on the fourth level gives it it's three out of five stars. JuCstin
5.0-21212 Windows 11 Intel Core i3-12100F NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Choppy sound at times, as well as few graphical issues. Chapter 4 does not crash. AGuy27
