Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunt is a game that’s a little bit like the popular Jurassic Park franchise, but not quite. It’s a hunting game that puts you in control of a giant carnivorous dinosaur, and the thier hunt for food takes you through a variety of distinct environments, from the plains of North America to the jungles of Central America to the swamps of the Amazon.
The vast majority of hunting games on the market, be it Open Country or Hunting Simulator, generally feature the same game species that you need to track down. You will mainly hunt deer, bear and, depending on the game, some ducks. But what if you hunt animals that you can also easily track? How about a game where you have to hunt dinosaurs? This is the premise of the film Carnivores: The hunt for dinosaurs.
The game is called Carnivores, but you have to kill a lot of herbivores to open the first carnivore hunt. Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunt is a strange anomaly. It’s a remaster… remastered. It’s time for a little history lesson: The original Carnivores game was released on PC in 1998. It got mediocre reviews, but sold well enough to develop an entire series based on this somewhat clever link. The original game was remastered for iOS in 2010.
This remaster has just been remastered for modern consoles. In fact, we’re playing a 1998 game that has undergone two plastic surgeries in the last two and a half decades. This means we have a game that feels modern in some ways and outdated in others. Graphically, I feel like I’m playing an improved version of a Gamecube game. Sometimes the level design reminded me of Turok Evolution in a strange way. It’s not terrible, it’s just very, very dated. Still, the frame rate is excellent and the dinosaurs are at least well modeled. The sound isn’t great, but for some reason it’s quite charming. It’s filled with very old sound effects from the late 90s and as a result the game evokes nostalgic feelings, albeit unintentionally.
This strange drone disrupts the immersion experience a bit. The real problem now is the gameplay. Strangely enough, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunt’s greatest strength is also its gameplay. In terms of controls, the game is not that bad. The controls are simple, but very responsive. You have several tools at your disposal, for example B. A radar, a silencer, several decoys and a gun with a limited amount of ammunition. You roam the pseudo-open map, hunt as many dino’s as you can, analyze their weaknesses with your hunting vision, and then summon a flying saucer to bring the game to your base. It is simple and sometimes very relaxing. The controls of the game are good. Promoting it is a burden.
It’s a bloody ordeal. I don’t know if the progression system was taken directly from the iOS port, but Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunt is stingy with the money and experience he gives for each kill. It lets you spend literally thousands of credits to unlock a map where you can hunt predators, as the title says. However, you only get 10 to 15 credits for each kill. To afford the smallest upgrades, you have to work harder than ever. Although this game has a fairly relaxed gameplay, this progression system will demotivate you after just a few sessions.
The design of the map is not so bad. It’s just… outdated. To everything I love about carnivores: Dinosaur hunt, is there anything else interrupting my fun. I like the concept, because hunting dinosaurs while trying not to get killed by your so-called prey is very fun and unique. I even loved the Nintendo 64-era sound effects, which evoke a strange sense of nostalgia. On the other hand, I was put off by the incredibly dated graphics and slow progression system. It will be a long time before you can buy a license to hunt a truly dangerous predator, and each hunt will only earn you a paltry amount of money and experience. I think the game could have been a lot more fun if the developers had changed the progression system to give players real benefits.
|The game runs at an excellent frame rate, but that’s the minimum you should expect from a game with Gamecube-era graphics. The dinosaurs, however, are well modeled.
|One of the most simplistic FPS and hunting control systems out there, but it’s responsive and works well for all purposes.
|There’s not much music here, which is good considering the genre. The game has a lot of sound effects that sound like they came from a Nintendo 64 game, but oddly enough they fit the setting perfectly.
|Don’t get me wrong, chasing dinosaurs while trying not to get eaten by them is great fun, but the amount of grit required to unlock almost everything makes Carnivores: Hunting dinosaurs has become more of a challenge than an amusement.
|Final decision: 6.0
Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunt is already available on PS4, Xbox One and Switch. The test will be done on the Xbox One. A copy of the book Carnivores : The Dinosaur Hunting book was provided by the publisher.
