  1. Its presentation isn't enough to warrant play. Remaining true to its roots in the last generation of gaming, Dino Crisis 3 features an extremely deplorable camera, mediocre action, and a B-rated story.
  2. As a sci-fi lover, it's hard to escape the thrill of the setting and the exceptional CG sequences that link the key action scenes, and the booming score continually ratchets up the suspense. I came away entertained and frustrated, disappointed yet more than open for a sequel. [Oct 2003, p.67]
  3. Playing from a series of static perspectives seems like a hearkening back to the days of clunky, older PS1 titles, and it's completely unsuited for a game that requires so much fast action. [Oct 2003, p.152]

    DC3's biggest problem is the visuals - not the look but the presentation. Camera angles constantly change perspective - often times during platform jumps - and you're forced to suddenly change direction on the controller.
  5. With so much to see and kill in the game, it's heartbreaking that the camera is so totally useless. [Nov 2003, p.89]
  6. If, somehow, you're able to get past the pervasive and ceaseless problems with the camera, underneath it is a halfway decent action game that suffers from repetitive gameplay, ceaseless backtracking of the "find the blue key and then run halfway across the map to use it" sort, and an utterly inane story.
  7. 20
    The action is dull, and the gameplay repetitive. Indeed, the very fact that the non-interactive cutscenes are by far and away the highlight of the game speaks volumes. [Japan Import]

    What Dino Crisis needs is a reboot to where 1 and 2 left off. With all do respect, I love every single minute playing the original Dino Crisis, one of the greatest Capcom games to ever extinct the Playstation era. I'm so disappointed on why the series is coming to a screeching halt when a 3rd Dino Crisis game was released on the XBOX and ditching its roots from the experts at Sony. Just like Dino Stalker (whatever that game is), Dino Crisis 3 is one of the worst embarrassing sequels of the decade. Expand
