  • The original Dino Crisis is one of my favorite games on the Playstation. While some describe

  • it as only being Resident Evil with dinosaurs, my argument to that it is, it’s Resident

  • Evil with dinosaurs. It was a solid survival horror game with an awesome dinosaur theme.

  • So when the sequel came around, I thought it was going to go the Resident Evil route,

  • with the sequel taking the series to new heights. Well, it did take the series somewhere new.

  • While Dino Crisis 1 was straight survival horror, Dino Crisis 2 is much more action.

  • This change may upset people who were fans of the original because it is so different,

  • but after you play a little you will see it is still a fun game.

  • The game takes place a little after Dino Crisis 1. Now on a remote research facility, “An

  • accident has occurred,” and the town has disappeared and replaced with a prehistoric

  • jungle. A team of TRAT is sent in to travel back in time and rescue what survivors they

  • can. Quickly they are attacked by Raptors and a T-Rex, killing most of the team except

  • Dylan and Regina, from the first game. The story is strong enough, being mostly about

  • the secret dealings of underground research and moves the game along well. Like Dino Crisis

  • 2, the game focuses on 2 main characters. But instead of playing basically separate

  • games for each, you will be switching back and forth between Dylan and Regina. One will

  • get trapped somewhere and the other will have to come rescue them. It works well, if not

  • a little predictably, but keeps the gameplay fresh.

  • And speaking of gameplay, that has gotten a drastic change from the first game. Instead

  • of focusing on the slow paced, methodical puzzles and fetch missions, this game is much

  • more focused on the action. The developers understood that a lot people just wanted was

  • to shoot dinosaurs and that the first game had you running away more often than not.

  • That is not the case this time. Now you can not walk 5 feet without being ambushed by

  • raptors. Luckily you are given a powerful gun that will kill them in a shot or two.

  • This came as a big surprise to me. I was treating this like survival horror when I realised

  • quickly it is not. There is even a combo counter tracking how many dinosaurs youve killed

  • in a particular area. That awards you will points, that you can use at save stations

  • to buy new weapons, upgrade weapons, or buy health. Now you will always have plenty of

  • health and ammo, making you not fear the dinosaurs but instead have them fearing you.

  • The world is not as open as the first game, having you running down linear paths to get

  • from one area to the next instead of finding your way. This works very well for the style

  • of gameplay, having many good boss scenes and attacks along the way. And the world is

  • brought to life with some of the best graphics on the PS1. This game is really pretty.

  • The only slight grip I have with the game is the controls. It still uses the classic

  • survival horror controls, which is personally the way I prefer to play my horror games.

  • But this is not survival horror and the controls can get in the way when you have 5 raptors

  • around you. You will get used to them, and enjoy the game, but the game would be just

  • that much better with analog controls.

  • The game is very good and very fun, but very different from the first game. If you are

  • looking for more of the same then look elsewhere but if you are looking for solid action involving

  • dinosaurs, then you won’t be disappointed.
