    dkirschner's Dino D-Day (PC)

    [July 30, 2014 02:38:16 PM]
    Some bundle site has been giving out free Steam keys for a handful of games. I couldn't resist grabbing Dino D-Day because...Hitler found a way to resurrect dinosaurs and use them during WWII? Yes please.

    Unfortunately the goofy premise is entertaining for all of half an hour. What's left is a mediocre class-based shooter.

    Yeah, you can play as dinosaurs on either the Axis or Allies side. Yeah, you can claw people to death as a Velociraptor, explode as another dino, spit acid as another dino, and eat a lot of sheep scattered around the maps. Be ready for a dose of Jurassic Park references.

    Yeah, you can also play as humans with guns. You can be the medic, the flamethrower guy, the shotgun guy, the sniper, the machine gun guy...

    After playing all the dinosaurs and a couple human classes, totaling maybe one hour, I was bored. There are a few game modes, mostly standard. One has one team piloting a giant dino that the other team has to kill before it reaches a checkpoint, but in a few games, no one got close to killing it. It just blasts you to death if you get close.

    Also there were 3-4 servers up when I was playing, with maybe 10-15 players total. Not many people...and the game crashed twice while I was playing, once when I clicked on a 'storybook' button, some feature that isn't implemented yet, and a second time just in the middle of a fight. Hmm.

    Glad this was free. Funny concept. Maybe one day the devs will do something more interesting with it. I'll take my Steam cards and go now.

    Funny for half an hour. Then a pretty crappy shooter.
