An abandoned research complex on a remote jungle island, a team of special forces ... more
operatives, a horde of vicious velociraptors, and one big, mean Tyrannosaurus rex constitute the setting and cast of Dino Crisis, the latest masterpiece from the makers of Resident Evil. You play as Regina, a member of a four-person team sent to retrieve an expatriate scientist. Your radio man became a midnight snack for the "T rex", so it's up to you and your two remaining team-mates to explore a dino-infested research station, rescue the scientist, call for a helicopter retrieval, and escape with your lives. Along the way you'll uncover the grizzly remains of those who got in the dinosaurs' way, and you'll unravel the mystery of how a top-secret energy research project turned into a Jurassic nightmare. And about those dinosaurs: they're all over the island. One instant you'll be walking along a second-story balcony, admiring the view, the next instant you'll be dodging a T rex as it smashes its huge maw through the concrete walls. Velociraptors chase you down blood-spattered corridors, flying reptiles circle the outdoor areas, and your only weapons are your pistol, whatever else you can salvage, a dwindling supply of ammunition, and your wits. Packed with clever puzzles and heart-pounding surprises, all superbly presented with realistic graphics and horror-movie camera angles, Dino Crisis is a triumph of survival-horror gaming. --Mike Fehlauer
Playstation playability, Resident Evil Familiarity
Blocky Graphics, unexceptional
"Dino Crisis is another playstation to Pc. conversion,and it's actually quite good. THe plot is fairly predictable: scientists have created a new type of fusion which, and this is the downside (there always is), rips a hole in the fabric of time and transports a few, well modeled dinosaurs some 600 million years into the future, nice. Your job in all this is to hunt down the scientist guy that started this and... well, you get the picture.

"Dino Crisis is brought to you be capcom, the people who made Resident Evil and their sequels. The game looks and plays exactly like Resident Evil, so people who have played the games won't feel out of place. The game is however too much like the series, only with dinosoars replacing the zombies. The same game system is also the same, you only being allowed to save in certain "safe" rooms placed in strategic locations, so limiting your saving abilites. ..."
