Product Description

Product Description

Edward City, the location of the research, has mysteriously disappeared and has been replaced by an overgrown jungle from the past. The government must begin an emergency evacuation to rescue both the staff and the results of the research. However, the decision is made to use an experimental time-and-space transfer device to send a military task force back in time and to the location of Edward City. Equipped with specially altered anti-dinosaur weapons, team members travel back in time on a mission they cannot possibly imagine. Unfortunately for her, Regina knows EXACTLY what the mission will entail, and this time she will be prepared.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Judging by early screen shots, sneak peeks at the game's opening movie and pre-release demos of the game itself, there will be a lot to talk about when Dino Crisis 2 takes its first public bow. It's also plain to see that while the original PlayStation is heading down the road to extinction, this is one title that shows the machine still has enough bite for most game players.

The story won't surprise anyone familiar with the first Dino Crisis. The powerful, enigmatic Third Energy is at the root of a whole bunch of new problems, making it tough for ordinary people (those with no guns) and military people (those with guns that don't work as well as they'd like). Reprising their roles from Dino Crisis, Dylan and Regina are cool and effective. In the most current, playable incarnation of the game, players start out as Dylan right after the opening movie.

With a few exceptions (a warehouse, a lab), most of the environments are in the great outdoors. They consist of jungles, fields and other terrific places to get suddenly jumped by dinosaurs (Capcom likes psychological terror, folks).

And when dinos attack, they do so in wonderful ways. Gaggles of raptors spring out of the foliage, immediately snapping and attacking. Unlike the first game, your character can now use two weapons in conjunction, a nice feature. For instance, one demo had Regina equipped with a large automatic machine gun and a less effective (but more persistent) taser. Use either weapon effectively by aiming and firing, or do a 180-degree spin-and-shoot with the press of a button. Because you can quickly get surrounded by swarms of raptors, this feature is a must. It also lends the game more of an action feel than the previous game.

The spin-and-shoot feature, and others like it, makes it easy to spend your allotment of ammo, so use it judiciously. The taser is a welcome backup for various raptors and other pests, but it has no effect on a monster T. rex. For those, you need bullets--bigger and bigger bullets. By killing beasties quickly and efficiently, players are awarded combo points, which can be used for upgrading to bigger and better weapons.

Like a bad penny, those pesky T. rex bosses keep cropping up when you are low on ammo, health or both. Stockpiling ammunition and safeguarding both your weapons for boss confrontations--as well as recognising and countering the movements of the bosses--are the only ways to make it. Of course, that's like saying that all you need to win the lottery are the right numbers: easier said than done.

With new features and gameplay mechanisms, slick graphics and a quick frame rate, this just might be a sequel that's worth the wait. --Todd Mowatt

4.0 out of 5 stars Paleo-Combatology 19 Oct 2002
Format:Video Game
One of the best descriptions of Jurassic Park I heard was from a friend of mine who killed it "Aliens Jr", and that's an image that stuck. Imagine my surprise when a few years later I come across a Playstation Game that does that description real justice.
Dino Crisis 2 picks up the plot threads remaining from that game. However the style of the game varies heavily from the prequel, This is a little more like the Resident Evil games (From the same producers), set at a faster pace and heavily dosed up on Adrenaline.
The Plot? The heroine of the first game, Regina, is brought in to consult on a particularly dangerous mission. Experiments first brought to light in the prequel have gone awry once more, but this time rather than bringing a handful of dinosaurs through time, this particular faux-pas has catapulted not only the lab responsible through time, but has dragged along a military base and a small city as well. So, Regina is called in to assist the mission commander, Dylan, as an elite team is sent back to bring back as many survivors as possible.
Of course, it's never that easy. No sooner has the special forces unit set up camp than they are attacked by natives of the time, Velociraptors (Jurassic Park style, hence larger than 'real world' raptors - Closer to Utahraptors for anyone with a paleontological bent). As the survivors think they've beaten off the Raptors a second attack comes, from another familar creature, a T-Rex.
With the setup out of the way, the player takes it in turns to control both Regina and Dylan as they journey between the lab, the base and the city, searching for survivors and trying to find a way to repair their damaged time-travel equipment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing dinos 2 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
This game is a big disappointment. Whilst it's true that there are far more species of dinos to kill, they are easier to kill and there are more of them - this is at the expense of game play. The first DC was great because there were a lot of puzzles to solve, some of them pretty difficult which combined perfectly with the "shoot anything that moves" part of the game.
DC2 is way to over the top - there are now so many dinos that it just becomes annoying when they appear constantly en masse, especially as they are so quickly and easily killed.
The puzzles have gone completley. Instead of re-wiring circuitry to open a door, (as in the first one) you now just wander round until you find the key laying on the floor. Instead of scribbling down passwords, key codes, identity numbers, you know just keep your finger on the trigger of some ridiculously enormous weapons and keep (yawn) firing.
Part of the skill of playing the original was to use ammo and recovery items carefully because once you emptied a box - that was it. Now, as long as you have the points, you can spend the entire game as some sort of mobile nuclear power-station, with unlimited ammo and recovery items available from the "shops".
The lack of puzzles and all-round head-scratching means that the game can be completed in just over five hours - leaving your brain feeling bored and your firing thumb feeling sore.
As a dino shoot 'em up - it's great - bags of ammo, loads of weapons and hundreds of dinos. But as a sequel to Dino Crisis - it's disappointing to say the least.

5.0 out of 5 stars Survival Horror Champ 1 April 2003
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Arguably the best survival horror on PS1. Improves on the original in almost every way. If you like to be in the thick of it in your survival horror then this is the game for you. The main problem with the original was that there simply werent enough dinosaurs. In this sequel you'll be fending them off from all angles. A good mixture of the usual exploring and puzzle solving and some nice 'shooting from a truck' levels. Essential.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but not enough! 28 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
After buying the original i had to buy this! Dino Crisis was really resident evil but with dinosaurs instead of zombies! Not scary it was too intense and action filled to be scary! I must say i prefer games that are weird and creepy! The original was still a classic!
When the sequel came out i went and bought it! The game started of similar to the original, a remake of resident evil but better. Until the storyline started to build up. It was strange and even slightly eerie and creepy in places! I would say it was a mix of the first, resident evil and silent hill! The jungle scenes and music were eerie so were the scenes underwater. They were much more dinosaurs and weapons than the first game!
So why dont i give it 5***** instead of 4****? Well it was action filled, full of great cut-scenes,(the one's with the t-rex were especially nail biting)! There was one flaw like they are in all great games. This one unfortunately stood out.
It was very short! There was so much that could have been added! The last scene with dillian and his daughter, instead of killing them of they should have made it so the two need to escape in a set time limit. Really it's just a question of why did they do that? Its a shame really, i also wanted to kill the t-rex myself! They were so many intense cut-scenes with the t-rex in it, but in all of them dillian or regina are saved! Why didnt they give us a chance to put up a fight and keep the action intense?
Apart from this unfortunate flaw the game is great! Action filled, intense, eerie and frightening! Unfortunately too easy and would have been better if it was like the first one. This still is an improvement except for the lifespan. Luckily it is worth playing twice through so all is not lost!
