    ************************************************************
    Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter is a console-quality hunting game which lets players explore huge non-linear locations as they attempt to track down a variety of dinosaurs that are armed with some of the most advanced AI on the platform. As a result, these are no “pea-brained” dinosaurs – these are dangerous creatures that are able to see, hear and sense the hunter. If you’re not careful, it’s very easy for the hunter to become the hunted.

    With 15 different dinosaurs across 5 distinct environments including pine forests, muddy marshes and rolling hills, how you approach your target is important. Wind direction, scent and the use of a special dinosaur call are all key elements in tracking your prey.
    Game Features:
    • 3D dinosaurs, from the Herbivorous (plant eating) for novice hunters to the Carnivorous (meat-eating) for experts;
    • Choose from among six different weapon types – from a sniper rifle to an X-bow;
    • Utilize the map and radar feature to locate and track dinosaurs;
    • 2 exciting game modes:
    - Hunting: a non-linear hunting experience where players roam through vast landscapes, tracking and hunting a variety of dinosaurs;
    - Survival: a timed, frenzied affair where dinosaurs begin rushing the player in an attempt to eat him. The pace starts slowly and builds, and the person who can stay alive the longest is the winner;
    • Online leader boards and social networking integration;
    • Interactive Dino Trophy Room.

    Coming with updates:
    - Ability to jump
    - Blood
    - Ammo supply
    - Statistics and more...

    This is the dino equivalent of those awful big game hunting sims. [Issue#231, p.93]

    For all extents and purposes, C:DH is a watered down port of Carnivores 2. It benefits from having some of the graphical improvements that PCFor all extents and purposes, C:DH is a watered down port of Carnivores 2. It benefits from having some of the graphical improvements that PC gamers originally had a hard time getting to work, but a lot of the more interesting landmarks and easter eggs have also been removed. Curiously, there are random changes to the color and texture of certain things, like a few of the dinosaurs and the Stonehenge monument at Fort Ciskin; said changes aren't improvements and don't affect gameplay in any way, so why they were changed at all is a bit confusing. Far more important, though, is the removal of: jumping and crouching, the ability to carry multiple weapons and licenses, and random dinosaurs appearing on the map. The latter is especially crippling as it totally removes the game's sense of paranoia and danger... players can casually walk around the island without having to worry about being stealthy or defensive and wipe out everything on the map care-free. This is made even easier by the slowing down of some of the dinosaurs' run speeds and the addition of a new Laser Rifle weapon which is more powerful than anything else in the game. The PS3/PSP version of the game is also developed by a different team than the iOS one, meaning it doesn't have (and likely won't get) the new dinosaurs and maps that were added in that version of the port. All in all, C:DH does little to improve the game but a lot to handicap it. The same can be said of the PS3/PSP version of Carnivores: Ice Age, which was ported in an identical manner. Expand
