    I can whole-heartedly recommend this game to Dreamcast fans who have never played the game... just don't expect any huge bragging rights over those PlayStation owners.
  2. Fails to take advantage of the Dreamcast hardware, resulting in a game that is structurally sound but visually average by Dreamcast standards.

    Still contains all the white-knuckle, suspense-filled gameplay that made the PlayStation version so great. Don't go in expecting something extraordinary or new, because you won't find it here.
  4. It's got scary atmosphere, decent graphics, excellent sound, great dinosaur enemies, ominous locales, and plenty to do. If you've already played through the PlayStation version, there's little reason to run out to get the Dreamcast rendition.
  5. Regina is one tough chick (a poster girl for the fictitious 'EuroAsia' of videogame and anime lore), but doesn't have the 'deer caught in the headlight' charm of Claire Redfield or Jill Valentine.

    I love Dino Crisis a lot and I love the character Regina so much. I wish we had HD remakes of this and Dino Crisis 2. I have finished bothI love Dino Crisis a lot and I love the character Regina so much. I wish we had HD remakes of this and Dino Crisis 2. I have finished both games more then once just I did with Resident Evil 2, 3, and Code: Veronica as well as Syphon Filter, Syphon Filter 2, and Syphon Filter 3. Dino Crisis should be remade in HD and so should Dino Crisis 2 forget Dino Crisis 3. Full Review »
