    Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter is the premier hunting experience on the iPhone, and it's just the perfect game for a wide variety of people.

    If you're looking for a deep, intelligent hunting sim, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter is ideal. The added bonus of hunting dinosaurs rather than conventional animals just makes it all the more intriguing a proposition.

    For some, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter may be a hard game to appreciate thanks to just how realistic the experience can feel, however this is without a doubt a must have for hunting enthusiasts and fans of open-ended titles.

    Methodical and hugely satisfying, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter isn't your typical shooter and while it makes considerable demands of the player, the feeling of reward you get in return is immense. The only real complaint is a lack of variety.

    Carnivores is a great game for fans of the hunting genre, but it doesn't offer enough to keep other players coming back to it.

    You also have extremely limited ammo and no way to heal yourself, which means that unless you know what you're doing, you're more than likely to wind up being hunted yourself, uttering your last words to that cunning velociraptor: "Clever girl..."

    Far and away the best of the modern Carnivores ports. While the PSN version lacked updates and some of the old gameplay features, Tatem's iOSFar and away the best of the modern Carnivores ports. While the PSN version lacked updates and some of the old gameplay features, Tatem's iOS version cuts little and adds lots. The most notable inclusions are a camera for taking HD screenshots, a new "horde mode" style mini-game that's surprisingly fun, and a dinosaur roster that's been nearly doubled since Carnivores 2, but fans of the series will pick up on many small, positive tweaks made to the game's flow and UI. The game even continues to receive updates now, years after its initial release, giving it the most consumer value of all the current games. It's only real downfall is that its controls are not as intuitive and precise as its PC ancestors, but they're certainly better than their PSP/PS3 contemporary and new players will likely adapt to them just fine. It's no wonder there are so many dinosaur hunting games popping up on mobile devices now... imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and CDH Pro is well worth the praise. Full Review »
