  1. Not a bad game for really patient people who love dinosaurs. If you don't fit into those groups then you probably won't like it.
  2. An enjoyable experience, with attractive graphics, strategic gameplay, and unique features that provide up-close looks at the dinosaurs in action.

    The core game is intriguing, it's just a lot better when you play it on the PC.

    Stumbles a bit with long loading times and jittery control. [May 2003, p.60]

    As good as the control system may be, the game doesn't work as effectively on a console as it would on PC.
