Carnivores is the kind of game that really only shows up once every thousand years, when the stars and planets align to create a form of god, in the shape of a Playstation Mini. Dinosaur Hunter is packed with incredible set-pieces, and amazing, smooth gameplay that is literally better than life itself.
You will be tested on the grounds of your very human nature, as the incredibly emotional storyline takes you on the rollercoaster of your life. Never before has a game touched me in a such a private area as Carnivores. You will be struck, with an emotional hammer of sorrow and passion, joy and reverence, love and death, and the very nature of a human being.
You are tasked with killing many photo-realistic dinosaurs, as you attempt to discover the truth of which of the 7 wisemen killed you first-born wife, and stole your power to cry.
As you play through the game, you will witness groundbreaking photo-realistic graphics and an amazing score by John Williams, as well as many wonderful sound effecta, such as the mating call, which left me speechless. The clouds, I’ve noticed, are some of the most life-like clouds ever in existence. Every animation is treated with as much care as the Bible itself.
You can choose from hundreds of different areas to explore, all of which are just as breathtaking and unique as the last. I have to give some credit to the animators, which I’ve heard weren’t paid very much, as they have triumphed with an amazingly atmospheric gamespace, that has immersed in the 256 hours I have played this.
Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter is a true triumph of our generation, and holds the distinction of being the best piece of media in all of history. And at a $1.99 price tag, you could do a hell of a lot worse than this shining masterpiece.
My tastes in games breach all genres, though my fortes are platformers and first-person shooters. My favorite game series is probably Super Mario, specifically the 3D games. I also love Rayman, Hitman, Bioshock, Half-Life/Portal, Uncharted, and Grand Theft Auto. As for my favorite game, it's hard to say: I love Portal 2, Shadow of the Colossus, Half-Life 2, Bioshock, Resident Evil 4, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Rayman Legends, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Grand Theft Auto IV, L.A. Noire, Fallout 3, Journey, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence all so damn much.
