GRRRRAAWR!!! Is the first thing that came to mind when I first saw that I could be a T-REX with massive machine guns attached to my head killing everything in sight. Dino D-Day is the game I always wished for as a child, I wanted to be a Dinosaur more than anything I can remember. I mean, honestly, after Jurassic Park came out who didn’t want to rip a goat to pieces with their imaginary monster teeth? WELL guess what You are able to pick up a goat and throw it at your enemies in Dino D-Day, I am officially sold.
World War II (B.C.)
Dino D-Day is set during World War II and Adolf Hitler has found a way to resurrect dinosaurs to fight the Allies in their war efforts. I like the twist that they are putting on the game since World War II games have been overdone to the point of comical amusement. You have the option to fight for the Allied team (aka no dinos) or you fight for the Nazis (Axis gets DINOSAURS!). The entire game is a complete online multiplayer first-person shooter. On initial release the game only consisted of five maps and three game modes that include; team deathmatch, king of the hill, and objective mode. The developers (800 North & Digital Ranch) have plans to increase the number of maps, game modes, and increase the number of playable characters, but for now you are stuck with only a few game options.
The gameplay is pretty much like any other multiplayer shooter. You are assigned to a team and then you kill each other, pretty simple. I honestly love a good shooter. Dino D-Day is just fun to play as long as everyone is just there to have a good time. Dino D-Day is not muddled with collecting new weapons or ranking up; a throwback to the classic days of party-shooters. Firing up the game, you are given the option of two teams. the Allied soldiers have human classes to pick from, the classes range from sniper, assault troop, medics, and heavy support. While the Axis have human and dinosaur classes, human classes: assault troops, medics, and heavy support. 7 playable dinosaur classes: Velociraptor, Dilophosaur, Desmatosuchus, Stygimoloch, Trigger the Protoceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Styracosaur.
Could a Dinosaur Figure It Out?
The controls of the game are a little tricky, which can be frustrating, but once learned the game is enjoyable. The game has a great feel of fun to it but it just seems lacking when you are actually in-game. I know that this isn’t a multi-million dollar game built by a massive AAA studio, but I can’t help but think that if the graphics were just a little better it would change the entire game all together. Dino D-Day is just missing that richness that I personally think will take it over the top. The maps are ok as well, but they aren’t the most advanced and really could use some much needed attention. I mean the real reason we all wanted to play this game was for the dinosaurs. Not because we have strong feeling toward World War II.
Dino D-Day is a game that I would recommend to anyone looking to goof off and play a fun shooter. Does it leave you wanting more? Yes, but hey I got to be T-Rex so I can’t really be too upset. The controls at the beginning leave you frustrated but just stick with it and everything will smooth itself out. I loved the concept of dinosaurs meets Nazis. All in all, Dino D-Day is an enjoyable game while also falling short. My suggestion is to watch Jurassic Park then fire up this game and live your dino fantasy out.
