i know that when you spend 1000s of dollars to develop an game and it gets bad reviews i know that that hurts but i am not going to let other people waste tire money on this game. first of all the game play is kinda borring for my taste. and the multi player mode is almost dead when i was playing only a wapping 67 people were online thats kinda bad for 2 millon copies sold isint it?. second of all the game runs extremly porr on my pc my pc can handle csgo at an constant 80 fps with medium settings. i tryed to turn down all of the setting to the lowest possible but the game can barly hit 30 fps. 20 fps in unplayeble for an fps it works for platformers or bullethell games but not for fps titles. the game had a big chance to be an extremly sucseful game but with the terible fps repedetive gamemodes and the dying multiplayer my final vetic will be 6/10 if the developers fix the lag lower the price even more and revives the dying multiplayer modes and makes some varaitey in the game modes i wuld happely give the game an 8/10.

Just so people are aware, this game's name use to be Orion Dino Beat Down, and they changed the name and re released it multiple times as a new game just to keep people from seeing all of the negative feedback it was getting. This is the same game that utilizes stolen assets and the head of Trek Industries, formerly spiral game studios fired the real team working on it just before release without paying them. I'm writing this review now because they are attempting to get out of a DMCA and possible suit of their new game "Orion" where they are literally doing the same exact thing and trying to play the victim. I bought this game before even knowing all of this, and felt so dirty for doing so, and im hoping and urging people away from buying into this mistake and scum of a company.

Both the publisher: TREK Industries and the devs: Spiral Game Studios should be permanently removed from steam. Not only do they steal assets from other devs, they have a long track record of not following through on there development promises. They try and undermind the steam review system by removing valid reviews, they changed the name of a game they never finished so they could re-release it and make everyone pay for the same game twice while abandoning their first game. I for one will never buy a game from this publisher again, not for $10 and not for $0.10. Devs that only have one release game should not be allowed to rename that game so they can release it again to make more money and cheat their customers. If you like Dinosaurs consider buying Ark, survival of the fittest is free, seriously Ark made a second game and charged nothing at all. What is your excuse TREK Industries/Spiral Game Studios?

TREK Industries: Hi, Activision!
Activision: What's up TREK?
TREK Industries: Can I use your assets?
Activision: NO!
TREK Industries:Well....I will use them anyway!
Activision: Come back here!
TREK Industries: HELP! Activision maliciously attacks Indie Dev!!!


For the record Activision is trash, but David Prassel is a blatant liar and a thief.
Plagiarism is never ok.


EDIT: Since I'm tired of replying to every braindead white knights that show up lately, here's the summary of the situation:

Read, then decide whether this "nice" developer is worth of you defending them or not.

Product received for free
Weapons seem pretty weak . I guess its not my cup of tea . The concept is good but it laggs for me most of the time.

Fast paced gameplay , and much spray and pray . however the lagg-spikes make it really hard for me to play :/
