  • Summary: Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs reunites fans with Scrat, Sid, Manny and Diego in an all-new quest based on the upcoming film from Twentieth Century Fox. As the unlikely herd travels across the tundra and beyond, they stumble upon another world - a lush Dinosaur World teeming with jungles, mysterious plants, fierce dinosaurs, wild new adventures and several new friends. Taking on the role of more than six playable characters, including everyone's favorite Ice Age friends and newly introduced characters, players master their unique skills and abilities across more than 15 action-packed levels. In addition to the expanded features of the single-player gameplay, for the first time in an Ice Age game, players can team up with friends and family in eight competitive multiplayer mini-games. Experience continuously changing gameplay through more than 15 levels - Every level presents new and exciting challenges as players learn and master each character’s abilities in order to defeat enemies, traverse dangerous landscapes, avoid obstacles and escape from perilous situations.

  1. On the whole, this title is not a burner. One of the main reasons is the boring story about Buck. You can find him in the film, but for real fans, more appearances of the original Ice Age crew would be preferable.
  2. The problem with this Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs lies in its great linearity. An old style gameplay suitable only by the youngest, or the fan of movie. Technically good: the environments are very different but the feeling of deja vu doesn’t inspire you to get to the end of the game.
  3. At least this is short so you won't have much time to get bored. [Oct 2009, p.68]
  4. Poor mechanics and collision detection hamper the experience. An excruciatingly asinine mini-game that makes repeat visits throughout the story throws an additional road block up, and its only shameless function is to pad the length of a game that is over in about two hours.
