    Great graphics and sound, tried-and-true gameplay, and wall-to-wall blasting mayhem make this a winner.

    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.
  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.
  5. 100
    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.
  6. One of the most refreshing takes on the third-person action shooter to date.
  7. Capcom has done a brilliant job of changing the entire dynamics of how dinosaurs can be dealt with.
  8. 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.
  9. 100
    Great graphics, excellent sound, solid control, and lots of replayability. Eons of fun!

    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.

    Offered a style of gameplay totally different than the original Dino Crisis. [Nov 2001, p.40]
  12. I must say that Dino Crisis 2 is the most pleasing new experience in this whole Survival Genre yet.
  13. Spank!

    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.
