I’m Not A Fan of Dinosaur Video Games But…
No, seriously, I’m really not a fan of any video game that doesn’t involve the words “you have been eaten by a grue.” Call me old school but the graphics on video games today make me jump. I don’t do blood,I don’t do guts and most of all I don’t do half decaying zombies popping out from the randomest places and trying to eat my brain. With that said however, I know quite a few of you are in to video games so today I thought I’d share some dinosaur themed video games with you. Just don’t ask my opinion on them because I haven’t played a single one of them.
A Sample of the Dinosaur Video Games Available
Turok by Disney Interactive Studios is rated Mature and is available for the Playstation, Xbox and PC. The average rating for this game by an audience of forty nine gamers is three and a half stars. This is a strategic combat game with the possibility for multi-player game play in which you can battle dinosaurs or choose to have them attack your enemies. Following the story line, you are a special ops soldier on a mission, the only problem is that these darn carnivorous dinosaurs seem to want to get in the way.
Turok was released in 2008 so it is far from a new arrival but it has remained a popular gaming choice since it rocked the Nintendo 64 console.
DinoStorm by Splitscreen Studios is a newer release in terms of dinosaur video games having been released in June, 2012. This PC game is currently free to play on the base level when you link through Amazon (see the link above) and offers player versus player action with three dimensional graphics. Online multi-player games add a new level of play to DinoStorm without having to subscribe to premium yearly services like many console games. As a ranger you’re heading in to DinoVille to mine for gold along with your dinosaur but when you get there you must face off against other dino owning cowboys and fight for your position in the town. Combining dinosaurs, cowboys and laser guns this one sounds like it’s worth checking out.
To play DinoStorm free of charge you need to link up to SplitScreen Games via Amazon.
