Dino Crisis (PS)
Advantages: Three alternative endings
Disadvantages: Not many FMV's
Dino Crisis for the playstation 1 was brought out in 1999, developed and published by Capcom. This game was developed by the same person who developed Resident Evil; you can tell it has the same feel to it. The genre for Dino crisis is classed as a survival horror and like resident evil it also has the same game play in 3D. The age rating for this game is 15+; it is a single player and has a vibration function. There aren't many FMV's in this game, and there's only the one disk.
Plot; The story takes place in a research facility on Ibis Island, and a Secret Operation Raid Team (S.O.R.T) was sent in to investigate. During this mission they find a Dr. Edward Kirk who was reported dead two years previous and he's heading up the facilitys weapon research department. And so S.O.R.T. sends four people to apprehend Dr Kirk this is where the story starts. Your character is Regina who is a intelligents agent and weapon expert. You parachute into the facility to find something has gone horrible wrong, mutilated and partially devoured corpses of security personnel and scientists scattered all over the place.
There are three possible endings to Dino crisis due to the choices you make during the game but I don't want to spoil the story too much. You find that using the third energy technology they have brough dinosaures through time and using them for experiments and your mission is to survive and rescue survivers. Another good feature is when you get hit you can bleed to death unless you have the right medi-pack.
Dinosaures, There are only a few types of dinosaures you come up against. Velociraptor, Tyrannosaurus, Pteranodon, Compsognathus, Therizinosaur, Deinonychus.
There are only a few weapons, handgun (starting weapon), shotgun, grenade launcher. However you can upgrade weapons and get different ammo (like darts and heat rounds).
There are a few unlock able secrets, alternate costumes, infinite grenade launcher and wipe-out mode (a mission based game, kill so many in or survive for so much time). I know you can get this game for next to nothing on eBay but I highly recommend it and well worth the buy. This is a great game even if you don't like the resident evil games, there is so much to do and a good story to keep you glued to the screen until the end. Personally I have acquired all secrets and it's still a great game just to have a mess about on.
