  1. Although there's really nothing outrageously bad about Dino Thunder, I ofter found myself a little bored with being a giaint robotic dinosaur, which just shouldn't happen. [Dec 2004, p.16]
  2. While fans of the show will get a kick out of controlling the Zords, the gameplay is so repetitive and uninspired that most will find it boring. If that isn’t bad enough, the game is short.
  3. A good entry level game for the beginners, but anyone else should probably take a pass, but then again, at a budget price, older, complete diehard fans, may want to take a chance.
  4. The game’s ridiculously repetitive and uninspired gameplay, combined with production values that would make nearly any gamer cry don’t form a winning combination.
  5. 45
    Dino Thunder’s overall lack of depth, difficulty and graphical pizzazz will forever delegate it to your little brother’s (or sister’s) game shelf.
  6. Dino Thunder is obviously trying to mimic the feel of free-roaming gameplay, but it fails to be entertaining about it. [Jan 2005, p.106]
