"For some reason most dinosaur games on Steam are terrible. This one is the exception. Humans vs Dinos in multiplayer battles, great fun."

Unfortunately, this game was indeed very good until a few updates destroyed what was once a smooth game. Not to mention that the "recode" is now a new game entirely.

GG Lukewarm.

On a sidenote, those that already own this dying game get a large discount on the new one.

Primal Carnage is a game I can entertain myself for hours on end. Weather you're in it for the killing or just to mess around and role play (rp). I Recommend this game. It's true this game hasn't been updated in months or maybe even a year now but even so it makes a great game none the less. If you want to feel a realistic dinosaur game then this one should be on your list of games to try.

The gameplay is quite smooth if you have a decent connection to the internet, it only gets laggy if there is a player with a high ping or your internet is just slow. It's a very smooth game and this is why I prefer it over Primal Carnage Extinction. The "improved" primal carnage (Extinction) is just too choppy for me and it just doesn't have the same feel that Primal Carnage gives. When I fly as a ptera I feel free, I could spend hours just flying around a map doing tricks and going under/over hard to reach places. Bonus: Pteras can actually speed up in this game by diving, wheras in Extinction you're basically just looking to get killed if you're a ptera. The movement of the dinos feels realistic, for example the raptor pounces at what seems within logic (in game it looks to be around 15ft). The rex doesn't vacuum you up into it's mouth, you actually have to aim to eat the human. Dilos are a much harder class to play, so if you like challenges then you should play that class and try to get atleast 5 kills without dying. Another thing that I like about the gameplay is the accuracy in aiming, it seems very realistic although the bullets don't slow down, they shoot the same speed as far as you want. Even still this game is quite fun.

One huge thing I love about this game is the community. Most people I have played with are reasonable although there is arguements on kill servers about weather a person is using "aimbot" or not. All in all most people understand the rules quickly and don't usually spam. I find there is less trolling in this game then in Extinction. Generally the people you meet will want to connect with you and soon before you know it you have a new best friend or someone who is very dear to you. I highly recommend getting to know the people you play with, you'll find out that they aren't so different from you and a lot of them share common interest along with you.

In conclusion, I would recommend this game to anyone who likes an intense and fairly accurate game. If you like it from the beginning chances are you'll get hooked just like I did. I am a die hard Primal Carnage fan and I will never forget this game. So if you want a little competition try new things in this game and push yourself to see how good you can really get. Before you know it you'll be the top killer on your team. I hope some of you will consider this game and give it a try.

This is a waste of money since devs decided instead of updating this, making an exactly the same separate game with added new skins and small changes to the level design.

This game was great at first, but then the developers got lazy, never updated and when they finally got around to doing anything they decieded that it should be a whole new game. They are crooks and should be in trouble for this.

Now this is Jurassic Park, the Game!
Great shooter, one of the better indie-developed shooters out there i.m.o..
Classes are balanced pretty good and the dinosaurs are really fun to play and to fight! :D

And if you buy this one, you will get Extinction with 50% off as long as it's early access!!!

LOVE THIS GAME
(dont even read this. Get this game NOW)


Although this game is a little annoying to adjust too once you got the hang of it you will be playing for hours at a time...Ive had it for only a few weeks ive already played 70hrs worth. It is one of the only games that really knows what a battle between humans and dinosars would look like. I also love the servers there is roleplay, freeroam, survival, get to the chopper, and just normal gameplay. It really gives the player a chance to show how they act in a game. once again. Just get the game already.

This game is quickly being outdated, aparently a new company has taken the the game and has decided to make a whole new game instead of updating this one as they said they would to the 2.0 so the game will be forever in 1.3 and will break your steam inventory kinda, so if you like the way it looks, the new one looks the same.

If your looking for a review on this game you've come to the wrong place, but if your looking for an outstanding pie recipe you've come to the right place.

Ingredients:
1. 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2. 1/2 cup white sugar
3. 1/2 cup brown sugar
4. 1/4 cup water
5. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
6. 1 pinch salt
7. 5 apples - peeled, cored and sliced
8. 1 pastry for double-crust pie

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
2. Combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and set aside.
3. Roll out half the pastry to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Place bottom crust in pie plate; pour in apple slices.
4. Roll out top crust into a 10-inch circle. Cut into 8 (1-inch) wide strips with a sharp paring knife or pastry wheel. Weave the pastry strips, one at a time, into a lattice pattern. Fold the ends of the lattice strips under the edge of the bottom crust and crimp to seal.
5. Pour butter-sugar mixture over top of pie, coating the lattice, and allowing any remaining sauce to drizzle through the crust.
6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake until the crust is golden brown, the caramel on the top crust is set, and the apple filling is bubbling, 35 to 40 more minutes. Allow to cool completely before slicing






But seriously, I love this game! :D

I consider myself decent at FPS games. I can usually hold a 1.0 KD in most situations. The first time I played this game, I was mauled by a big ♥♥♥ spiny dinosaur 17 times in a row, and it did not matter how much I shot it. The guy playing the dinosaur was 94-0.

enough said about this game.

This. Game. Is. Amazing. By the time you die youll be crying of laughter at sneaking up and eating the face off the walking sausages, or spinning around and accidently shooting a hiding dilophosaurus! You buy this game and youll never regret! The gameplay feels alot better than extinction! (especially the dilophosaurs and raptors)

I've had PC for a long time, and it's still a game I come back to whenever I'm bored and in need of some prehistoric chaos.

However, it's filled with glitches, annoying classes, and a multitude of things that will make you ask 'wat teh actual frick'. If you can handle PC's quirks and learn to laugh along with it, then go ahead and try it out.
