    ************************************************************
    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...

  1. It's a straight game without any special weaknesses or strong points. If you ever wanted to kill off some dinosaurs, this one will keep you playing for a couple of hours.
  2. The whole thing is so soulless you'll be praying to get hit by a meteor. [Issue#51, p.103]

    I may be biased by nostalgia, as I loved the original PC game as a kid, but I find this mostly enjoyable and I play it every now and then. The controls take a little getting used to, but it's mostly functional. A few things I liked about the original PC release are missing (multiple weapons and the lack of cheats for a start), but it's still all right. Expand
