Description

Dino Crisis 3 is the third game in the Dino Crisis series, and this time, it's futuristic.

The year is 2548. The colonist spaceship Ozmandias, which disappeared over 300 years ago, suddenly reappears, with no warning or reason to it's disappearance. Attempting to contact the ship results in nothing. The Interstellar Fleet Commander sends out the Special Operations and Reconnaissance (SOAR) squadron to investigate. Their shuttle is destroyed by a merciless and unknown assailant. Everyone manages to survive, and reach the ship intact. What they encounter is something they never would've thought of.

As Patrick, the leader of SOAR, you are tasked with exploring the ship, putting the pieces together, and rescuing any survivors you can find. The ship you are on, the Ozymandias, is a dynamically changing structure, which enables you to move hallways and re-position doors so that you can access new areas all the time.

During your search, you'll have to battle a number of various dinosaurs, from Raptors to the terrible Tyrannosauras Rex. Luckily, you have a variety of weapons at your disposal, from standard firearms and shotguns to sophisticated laser and beam-guided rifles. You may also find and use Wasps; little robotic bee-shaped critters that can attack enemies or open doors and other devices.

To aid you, you are equipped with a jetpack that you can use at any time to hover or speed through areas. It may also be used when in a tense firefight, taking the battle to the air. Many dodging and evading techniques are possible with the use of the jetpack.

Like the second game, Dino Crisis 2, you are awarded points for every dinosaur you kill. Kill some in rapid succession, you'll earn more points and double them as well. With enough points, you can buy new weapons, ammo, and health items at various terminal stations scattered throughout the ship.

With the aid of three of your best crew, find the survivors, figure out what the hell happened, and most importantly, get off the ship before you become dino dinner.
