Many people asked me about the game „Orion: Dino Horde“. So I have written a review now. ^^
First I have to say that the game has just 36/100 Metascore. But the Metascore was for the game "Dino Beatdown", not for "Orion: Dino Horde" and the game hasn’t only changed the name, its totally different now.
For many people it’s still not a good game, because of a not perfect graphic (uff.. for me the graphic looks alright – I would give for it 7/10 points. – You can take a look at my Screenshots), some bugs (really the most Shooter Multiplayer Games have bugs/glitches…) and the not so realistic weapon sounds or I DON’T KNOW WHY!
Really… I LOVE THIS GAME!
For me it’s like a mix out of “Primal Carnage” (Jurassic Park Style) and “Killing Floor” plus you have more possibilities in this game. The aim of the game depends on the mission you choose (but in general it’s about shooting dinosaur (1st Person shooting view / 3rd Person Hybrid Gameplay), surviving and protecting the base).Possible Game Modes: Slaughter
(lots of enemies)Survival
(protecting base, activating objects and surviving the growing waves of dinosaur)Rampage
(like in “Primal Carnage” there are 2 teams “Dinosaurs” and “Humans” who play against each other and switch after that)1v1 Duel • Team Duel • Team Elimination • Free for all Duel • King of the Hill • Instagib • Conquest • Gun Game
You can play it solo, friendsonly (Co-op) or public (Multiplayer).
You can choose the difficulty (Noob, Easy, Normal, Hard, Insane, Redikulous) you want to play and one out of 40+ possible maps!
During the game you earn Credits to buy other weapons (50+ weapons, Tech & Gear) and (depending on the game mode) you can also use 7 different vehicles.
But you also earn EXP with killing dinosaur which increases your level. Yeah your level – there is also a level system in this game and the different human classes have all unique abilities.Classes:Assault
He has a Jetpack which makes him able to fly for a while (That’s freaking awesome! It’s so funny when the T-Rex is really nearly to eat you and you just fly away BYE BYE T-REX lol). But back to the topic the Assault starts with a CV-10 Pistol (better weapons you get with killing and purchasing). His Grenade is “Frag Grenade”.Recon
The Recon has the ability to use his cloak which makes him invisible for the enemies for some seconds. He starts with the CV-10 Silenced Pistol and uses the EMP Grenades.Support
The Supporter people have medic guns. They can heal themselves or other teammates whenever they want but they really need it because they can’t just fly away. They start with the M-40 Magnum and have Smoke Grenades. I like those Smoke Grenades because when you get into trouble with the Supporter because you have to reload your weapon but you can’t - because too many dinosaur are attacking you - and you are just healing yourself the whole time, it’s possible to throw such a Smoke Grenade and the dinosaur run away. Good time for reloading and healing. ^^Back to the level system:
You unlock more abilities with a higher level (for example less fall damage or more jump height). The current maximum reachable level is 50. Achievements:
Oh it’s just HEAVEN for achievement hunters! There are 250+ achievements and the most of them are not that hard to get. There is really for everything an achievement.. for kills with all weapons, healing, flying, riding, surviving and and and.
So all in all.. what should I say… this game offers much and makes a lot of fun! Sure it’s not perfect (e. g. weapon sound isn’t realistic) but who cares.. which game is really that realistic? In Left for Dead 2 you can shoot through a wall but not through a TENT! LOL So I tell you to give this game a try and maybe you join my games and we smash those dinosaur together! ^.~
