First off: Metacritic score is wrong as it's for the previous game "Dino Beatdown". I won't discuss about the rename of the game or if Dino Horde is a sequel or an update.
Now, let's go with the review:
The game is awesome, I've never seen a dev team update a game this much. Since release they added lots of weapons, maps, game modes, dinosaurs...
Sure, it's rough around the edges and some things could use some improvement, but the overall experience is good. Really good.
Just imagine a team of space marines flying around and shooting at dinosaurs in various settings, jungle, forest, desert, you can even shoot dinos in the snow now!
The game modes add a lot of variety to the game, there's Survival (where you have to defend a base against the horde), Rampage (classic survival, just stay alive) or Conquest. Conquest is the newest game mode and it's like Survival x10, multiple bases, open world, day-night cycles...
Then there's the PvP for all you guys tired of shoot at dinos, you can shoot your former teammates or even challenge them into a duel (1v1 pvp mode) where you use laser swords to kill each other like the Jedi.
Oh, and there's this game mode where you can play as the dinos. From the Spinosaurus to the Compy.
There's level progression too, leveling up unlocks starting weapons and habilities like, for example, in Killing Floor.
I give it a 8/10, really fun and addictive.
