As you may have learned, we have been encouraged to find other efficient means of spreading word about our titles in order to reach a wider audience.

We have been unsuccessful getting reactions from mainstream press, for reasons that have become ( and are becoming more) clear as time goes on. We have been encouraging others to do the same and giving our reasons why while offering solutions to the current problems affecting our industry. You can read more about that here. ( Update: It looks to becoming the more common choice across the board).

This game started as disaster with an good idea.With the newest Update a lot has changed and it needs a review from all the bad voters.... it took a while but the devs made the effort to finish their product (not like many other bigger studios out there) Worth gaming. Worth buying.

8/10

Yes, buy this game. Its Killing floor + Halo + Turok.
It has its flaws, but the devs seem devoted and are present on the steam forums. If you played this game in beta and not again(like me) give it another shot, it is now playable(LoL) and quite awesome. The difference is uncanny. I reinstalled it yesterday and I'm already level 11. It never felt like grinding.
Buy a four pack, get some friends who will play installed and have a blast together.

For me the biggest con is the limited players. That easy to solve though, buy and play this WAY under priced game.

i mean... i dunno it's alright, it's kind of god awful in a hilarious broken buggy kind of way. But it's a dollar for a few hours of super cheap fun. You have to pay more for a can of coke than this game, and though coke is tasty and refreshing, this game costs less money and therefore is better than coke.

Over the years this game has been bashed as one of the worst games to be released on steam, however now I'd say get it.

For £0.79 game the graphics look like they are from a game costing £30, and the weather effects you get on your helmet is a nice addtion too, the main enemys in this game are dinosaurs and there are 7 of them and 2 flying reptiles and a giant Crocodile, all 10 of them feel unquie and fun to fight against.

You can get vechicles in this game, theres the average jeep with turret, a jet and a tank, but best of all theres a MECH! YES A MECH YOU CAN FIGHT A TREX WITH A MECH! All of the vechicles are great to drive and are really helpful overall.

Game breaking glitches like map glitches or crashes are very rare in this game, the only one I can think of is where you can leave a map by playing as a flying reptile or playing Assault with the jetpack and fly above the boundires, luckly this is only on one map and it's unplayed often.

However this game does have a few downsides....

1. A lot of weapon clipping, sound glitches and firing glitches, most noticeable with the default pistol, duo pistols and using reload speed upgrade.
2. Ragdolls are really glitchy at times, however more tame then any from the Source engine.
3. Playing as Dinosaurs is nearly impossible with the terrible camara angle and controls.
4. Soundtrack is really stock.
5. Small, but very friendly commuinty

Overall the game is much more better then it orignally was, a fun CO-OP horde game to play with your friends!.

My friends call this game "The good game because it's so bad".
A bare mininum shooter game with surprisingly good varity of weaponry.
Expect glitches and bugs because it's not a triple A game.

Orion: Prelude
A dinosaur survival/TDM/CTF/etc game that has you shooting dinosaurs wave after wave, upgrading your character and buying yourself better weapons. This game is incredibly fun and never gets old, I have been playing this game for quite some time now, and now that I persuaded my friends to buy the game, I play even more.
I strongly recommend you buy this game if you have not already.

I enjoyed it since the dino horde update. It's like a mixture of killing floor, halo and dinosaurs, sounds silly but it's a really fun game to play with your friends. Good graphics, no story mode(single player), 5 different difficulties, pvp and co-op mods, three classes and many equipments to choose from, vehicles, simple serverlists, simple level system that rewards you boosts, ''starting weapons'' and more. This game is worth more than the price says, grab it and share with your friends! :)
