Every bit worth what I paid for it...

I should have prefaced this review with some facts:

- I purchased this game at the last major Steam sale (or my wife did for me, rather)
- You get to kill Dinosaurs
- Clear plotline, but you get to kill dinosaurs
- For the most part mechanically sound
- The developers seem fairly responsive to the (reasonable) desires of customers
- I think it's a great thing when a group of people like this comes together and designs something so very colorful, creative and minimally buggy, without the resources of a entertainment titan like EA, Activision, etc... If you want to argue the semantics of Unrealy Engine, whatever
- Just try it if you've got the spare change and could use a good laugh.
- It's fun, it's silly, and if you can look at it through that lens it's a great once in a while to do by yourself or with friends!

- on a scale of 1-10, I'd give it a solid 7. If you want to be ULTR@ SERIOUZZZ, go play Call of Duty; you will be (un)welcomed to play by scores of misogynists, racists, proto-rapists, fratboys, and <insert next offensive term here> in a super serious FPS! Sounds great, right?!

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.

The year was 1967. We'd just been deployed in the delta to keep the Cong and NVA from approaching some of the major trails. I was trudging through one of the tree covered marshes, soaked to the core, wondering what the hell I'd gotten myself into. We were two minutes away from setting up an M249 on a rigged turret when out of nowhere what looked like a pterodactyl flew down and exploded, killing four people in my unit. From there on out, it was hell, neon lights everywhere, and then the god damned t-rex had to come in and stomp our ♥♥♥♥.

Either way, this is a 10/10 simulation of Vietnam War II's opening, with Far Cry Blood Dragon acting as a good reenactment of the end of VWII. May the t-rexes of the world rot where they stand.

We all bought this game as a joke because of the price and we had read the reviews of how terrible this game was. At one point, yes, this game was probably the worst game on Steam. Whatever the developers did in between then and now, it actually turned out to be quite fun. The graphics are actually pretty good (especially the weather effects), the controls feel solid, and it's fun to shoot dinosaurs.

There aren't are lot of classes (four) but the ones they have are unique and fill their roles admirably. The maps are huge and the vehicles are a blast to drive.

This game is 100% better if you have a small group of friends to play to log on with and just joke around killing dinos. For $0.99 everyone should probably own this game.

This game is soooo much fun and very addicting! Best .99 I've ever spent. I bought this for a friend as well.
As the waves get bigger, it just gets more and more fun. The hit points are similar to Borderlands, and its cool that you still get credit and XP based on the percent of damage you've done to a dino before it dies. So even if someone finishes off a dino you pumped a lot of rounds into, you still get a portion of the xp and credit.

For a game that you can buy for less than a dollar, this is the best you could ever hope for.

Yes there are some bugs and it doesn't exactly feel like a complete game, but shooting dinosaurs while flying on a jetpack just feels fun. I highly recommend this.

This game reminds me a lot of Killing Floor. Basicaly you face down waves of dinos, with the ocassional objective capture in the between, and jumbo dinos to fight off, all while protecting your base. Simply yet addicting. Totally the best $0.99 I ever spent :)

Loads of fun with friends and offers a good variety of classes (flighing, healing, & stealth).

I've seen the steam key giveaway in the begining of the month... so I tried... Everytime I could not get one. Well the heck with that, I decided to buy the game some days ago (1 dollar is cheap) well... WELL... WELL.... MOST AWESOME GAME OF THE TIME. I mean FOR REAL! No micro transaction, no paying dlc, fun games, dinosaurs and kinda old school: all I searched for! A plus is the community ;) thanks for making this happen! I have faith in the future of video games again because people like you put passion and pleasure into your games and the players can enjoy it fully! :) Well be right back I have to eat some humans now

This game is unoriginal in the sense of the weapons, vehicles, gameplay, and layout. But don't think i disliked the game, it is phenominal. The action and co op make the game perfect for multipalyer. At the heart of it, this game is plain fun to play.
