    Let me tell you, this is the sh*t. Dino Crisis 2 is a pure action-packed adventure/shooter that satisfies my urge to bloody my shirt with dinosaur guts, all the while weaving a great story with worthwhile characters whom I care about.
  2. One of the most refreshing takes on the third-person action shooter to date.
  3. Capcom has done a brilliant job of changing the entire dynamics of how dinosaurs can be dealt with.
  4. The additions to combat, varieties of gameplay, and throngs of enemies who are serious about doing you harm make this infinitely more playable than most of the self-styled "survival horror" games.

    Graphically, Dino Crisis 2 boasts some of the best work the old PS will ever have to offer, with great CG flowing near seamlessly into the action the player controls.

    Offered a style of gameplay totally different than the original Dino Crisis. [Nov 2001, p.40]
  7. I must say that Dino Crisis 2 is the most pleasing new experience in this whole Survival Genre yet.
  8. 100
    Great graphics, excellent sound, solid control, and lots of replayability. Eons of fun!
  9. Dino Crisis 2 serves up plenty of heart-thumping mayhem, awesome graphics and sound, and enough dinosaur bloodlust to keep even the most experienced dino hunters on their toes.

    Dino Crisis 2 serves up two playable heroes in the form of military agents Regina and Dylan and, unfortunately, they're both rather stock and devoid of personality.

    Great graphics and sound, tried-and-true gameplay, and wall-to-wall blasting mayhem make this a winner.
  12. Spank!
    80
    Slightly shallow, but good, blood-splattered fun for all that, DC 2 is at the very least one of the most graphically accomplished arcade games you'll see on the PlayStation.

    "You made me love you, I didn't want to do it, I didn't want to do it."

    Dino crisis 1 was alright I can admit, but Dino crisis 2 really stole the spotlight when it came out. The game is a direct continuation to 1Dino crisis 1 was alright I can admit, but Dino crisis 2 really stole the spotlight when it came out. The game is a direct continuation to 1 but instead of being a resident evil clone it puts you balls deep in a sea of dinosaur shooting action. My girlfriend told me to come into her bedroom and I told her NOT NOW BETCH IM PLAYING DINO CRISIS 2 and she wasn't even mad cause she knows the game is better than anything she can possibly offer me. This game is a masterpiece and the best game I ever played. BUY IT Full Review »
