Dino Crisis Movie 2

  1. A decent job of reskinning the old PlayStation version with new Dreamcast graphics, the game is still dark and moody, with the action well spaced out between the tense situations.
  2. Think of it as a time capsule of sorts, and a lesson in just how far hardware has progressed over a few short years.

    Both games are directly targeted at the budget level, and are steals for gamers that have never owned the PlayStation versions, or just never had the chance to really get into either one.
  4. Dino Crisis is essentially "Resident Evil" with dirty great lizards instead of rotting zombies, it's still atmospheric and cinematic and it's still a bloody good survival horror romp.
  5. 72
    I can whole-heartedly recommend this game to Dreamcast fans who have never played the game... just don't expect any huge bragging rights over those PlayStation owners.
  6. Fails to take advantage of the Dreamcast hardware, resulting in a game that is structurally sound but visually average by Dreamcast standards.
  7. Regina is one tough chick (a poster girl for the fictitious 'EuroAsia' of videogame and anime lore), but doesn't have the 'deer caught in the headlight' charm of Claire Redfield or Jill Valentine.

    I love Dino Crisis a lot and I love the character Regina so much. I wish we had HD remakes of this and Dino Crisis 2. I have finished bothI love Dino Crisis a lot and I love the character Regina so much. I wish we had HD remakes of this and Dino Crisis 2. I have finished both games more then once just I did with Resident Evil 2, 3, and Code: Veronica as well as Syphon Filter, Syphon Filter 2, and Syphon Filter 3. Dino Crisis should be remade in HD and so should Dino Crisis 2 forget Dino Crisis 3. Expand

    "Dino Crisis" is basically "Resident Evil" meets "Jurassic Park". It's a survival horror game that provides plenty of thrills. The game is"Dino Crisis" is basically "Resident Evil" meets "Jurassic Park". It's a survival horror game that provides plenty of thrills. The game is challenging, but fun. This was released on the PS2 around the same time that "Resident Evil 3: Nemesis" arrived. The big difference between the two is the pacing. In "Nemesis", the pace is faster with an emphasis on weapons and ammo. "Dino Crisis" is more in the tradition of the original "Resident Evil". There are less enemy encounters and guns, but more jump scare moments. You truly feel like you're hanging out to the seat of your pants. It's a terrific game. I would give it an 8.5 out of 10.
