This game starts out as really fun and cool. The 3d in it is awesome, really shows great depth and when you turn around and start running at the screen it looks like the dinosaur will jump right out of the screen.
STORY: this is something the game lacks. the extent of story development is only 3 or 4 pictures with captions. I was hoping for an awesome movie clip to explain the whole purpose of the game but no. What the story is is that a dinosaur called the archosaur has takin over the dino world and you have to get one of each group of dinos so you go have your final showdown.
Graphics: im really to good with identifying good graphics but i do thing they were really good, especially for a handheld, and the 3d works great with this game.
Gameplay: it is simple yet fun. you run around each of the five levels with a pretty good variety of dinosaurs collecting bones to unlock fun facts and customization items as well as equipment to up your stats and stuff. The customization was my favorite part. The problem with this was that yellow and orange were only a tint added to the standard green. However this was still a cool feature. The battles were simple, when you first start playing the game with your very first dino it will tell you what the enemies weakness is then you must remember that and use it against them. Dodge the flash red and then do your attacking, thats it. This is all you do and after getting the first four dinos to beat the final boss i was bored with it.
Summary: its great but is repetitive. DO NOT buy unless you REALLY like it, but definitely rent.
I made a blind purchase from gamestop, and it serves me right that this was LOUSY! My regret is that I should have rented this stupid game first from Gamefly! Had I rented first I would have put it back with in the hour! Yes, I have buyers remorse, but let this be a lesson to you, RENT it FIRST!
