Summary

Another one bites... the dust?

The Good

From the outset, this game's main theme was gore, and lots of it.

The menu structure is well thought out and very effective, and the implementation of level passwords may seem slightly old-school, but when your memory card is full of GT3 save files, it's useful. The ability to collect DNA strands as you progress through the game is another nice touch.

The dinosaurs were well modeled, and I am particularly fond of the Compy, but the Rex pretty much won the gore award.

The Bad

The inability to save did mean that I was forced to finish playing each character's story, but some of the levels are quite straightforward, which kind of makes up for it.

The Bottom Line

A pre-historic romp through a jungle, roaring, biting, eating and shooting your way through five different stories. Lizard, anyone?
