    This repetitive trudge through the land before time does no justice to the concept of dinosaur fighting game.

    Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D looks like a rushed product which does not even tale advantage of features such as the touch screen. The idea of a war between dinosaurs is neat but the developer had to work harder on the overall gameplay.

    Combat of Giants might work great as an early technical showcase of the 3DS' power, but there's really not much game -- or value -- here to speak of.

    This game might be worth a few bucks on your iPhone, but not forty bucks on your 3DS. This title is so easy, uncomplicated, and unexciting that we can't recommend it for anyone.

    Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D is unimaginative, tedious, and damn repetitive. To be remembered only as one of the less successful games of the initial line-up of the Nintendo 3DS.

    Kids and kids-at-heart may get a thrill out of seeing dinosaurs kinda-sorta duke it out in 3D, but the game itself fails to offer much beyond its really simple structure and fight mechanics, both of which get old just a little too quick.

    Combat of Giants : Dinosaurs 3D is all its title immediately suggests : a shoddy game. Even though it's quite likeable thanks to the dinosaurs-in-3D appeal, in termes of gameplay, we're drowning in the primitive soup of gameplay mechanics from which the video games emerged. It's so basic that if you may have fun the 5 first minutes, there's no way it might last beyond that.

    The game doesn't use the whole potential of the 3ds. The 3D effect is still pretty nice, but the repetitive gameplay and level design aren't entertaining. If you like dinos you should wait for a price-cut.
  9. Tyranna-bore-us Rex. Triceraplops.Velocicraptor. You get the picture.

    This repetitive title somehow manages to make dinos seem dull. [May 2011, p.56]

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Out of the battle of giants series, this is the best. The 3D is one of the best out all current 3DS titles, and really brings out the enviornment and dinosaurs during gameplay, even the title screen is beautiful! The game does fall short in a few things though. It is very repetitive and once the player has trained all 4 of his dinosaurs to fight the final boss, then things get boring, even though there are fun cards to collect, which teach the player things they may have never knew about the jurassic giants, once all are colected, there is nothing more to do than beat the game multiple times again with the games many other dinosaurs. Customizing isnt as fun as it is in the Wii version, but there are skeletal designs that only one dinosaur had in the Wii version, so there is diversity between some, but roars are all the same for all dinosaurs of one class. The sounds are pretty good and the dinosaur footsteps are easily heard. The enviornments in this game are a sight to see and are awesome in 3D. Overall the game is easy and can be beaten in at least a day and a half but is fun to play, but the game will bore younger kids after about a week and parents should wait until the price drops from $40 at least $20 bucks, which already happened at Target.
