    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.
  3. I must say that Dino Crisis 2 is the most pleasing new experience in this whole Survival Genre yet.

    Offered a style of gameplay totally different than the original Dino Crisis. [Nov 2001, p.40]

    "You made me love you, I didn't want to do it, I didn't want to do it."
  6. 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.

    Dino Crisis 2 is a fantastic game. As soon as you see it you feel like it's yours. The graphics are brilliant for a PsOne game. It Dino Crisis 2 is a fantastic game. As soon as you see it you feel like it's yours. The graphics are brilliant for a PsOne game. It challenges you right up to the top when you play. And once you complete the main game you get the extra crisis which is wicked. The gory in it brings the game to life. I recommend it to a anyone. Expand

It was the first playstation game i ever got and i still cant stop playing it. The graphics are SO detailed for a ps1 game and the gameplay (especially the dinos- giganotosaurus is awesome!) is challenging but fun and will have you playing for hours! The story is intricate and deeply thought out by Capcom. The best ps1 game i have ever played overall. Expand

    I will never forget the time when i was waiting for my birthday's present and this present was a PS One console. When I finally got theI will never forget the time when i was waiting for my birthday's present and this present was a PS One console. When I finally got the console it was a dream came true and Dino Crisis 2 was among my first games. I have been a dino fan for the most of my life so this game was especially enjoyable for me. Some may argue that this is a simple resident evil clone even though the overall quality of this game is on a high level. I wouldn't agree with this statement. In dino crisis 2 you have to fight swift and agile dinosaurs but not the slow zombies like in the early resident evil games so the gameplay is far more dynamic. An outstanding variety of weapons of all sorts makes killing prehistoric creatures an endless fun. I also liked the music and the great atmosphere it created. There are many interesting details in the plot that seem really obscured and unevident in the beginnig but the more player progresses the more he/she learns about the 3-rd Energy experiment and it's outcomes and the story of helmeted people who are chasing our heroes throughout the game. There are about 10 species of dinosaurs presented in this game - not a huge number for a dino fan, still, bigger than in the first game. I think, a drawback of this game is the system of extinct points. As you kill more and more enemies without getting hit your earn more points that you can spend for buying new weapon and equipment. At some point you buy some really badass guns and begin to eliminate dinos like a terminator. It's fun, exciting and entertaining but you begin to feel more like a juggernaut rather than a prey. The developers could have reduced the number of points you get for killing dinos so there would be a greater sense of horror in this game( like in the exceptional Resident Evil 4 where the number of bullets is not enough to waste but is enough for your survival). It's a great system for an action game but not for a horror( so it's not a big drawback - just my personal opinion).
    Still, it's my favourite PS One game. Of course, it's not among the PS One gems like metal gear solid, resident evil 2, crash bandicoot and gran turismo but a game that is worth playing. I have been playing for 12 years and I can't remember MANY great games abouts dinosaurs (Paraworld, Peter Jackson's King Kong - that's all i remember). That's why Dino Crisis 2 is a monumental game for the fans of prehistoric monsters and is also a great experience for all third-person shooter fans.
