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

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.

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

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.

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.

Ok, so, This game... Well, many other Human vs Dino games have some implement that makes them special. In Dino D-Day, the Dinosaurs have guns strapped onto them. Orion Dino Horde, the Dinosaurs are always in swarms. Now, Primal Carnage is special because it doesn't HAVE anything special. It is pure, objective killing. I love the fact that it's a Red vs Blue kind of thing. The game also has some of the better graphics for Unity engine, and the sounds are amazing. The fact that this is an FPS game, or in this case, FPC ( First Person Clawer ), just blows my mind about how much work was put into it. The developers have created the new version of this game by now, but still, this game is one of my all time favorites.

This is one of my personal favourites, but its no longer worth it. It is a fact that this game wasa pioneer in the FPS industry and anyone who played it knows that, but if youre going to buy a primal carnage game, get Extinction. This game has good graphics, Extinction has better graphics. This game has a few bugs, Extinction has fewer bugs. This game is an immersive and fun experience for anyone who liked jurassc parh, Extinction is more immersive and closer to home for those who liked the jurassic park genre. I still will always love this game but it will never be better than the second in the series.

If you are looking for a game where you can just be a velociraptor and sneak behind your enemies for hours waiting to strike without them ever noticing. then stop searching! This game really gives you the feeling that you are an actual dinosaur stalking its prey waiting for the right moment to strike.

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)

This was a fun relief from all my more serious and freakishly fright night kinda games. Its not as aggrivating to me as some of the big war games but keeps that fun team element of you versus them. Your team even changes off and on to the other team. I mean this game may not have massive enviornments or big scares but its pretty fun. Sometimes it may seem a bit one sides but so do all games. I say give this game a purchase and a try. Possibly try the next one as well if you like it.

This game quite literally cured my nightmares.

Ever since watching Jurassic Park back in 1993, i've been having recurring T.rex related nightmares for the past 2 decades.

Cue Primal Carnage, and me sinking a few hours into playing Commando, a guy who (when played reasonably well) can single-handedly take down a T.rex.

Now, on the rare occasion a T.rex appears in my dreams, it gets put down in a hail of gunfire.

As for the game itself...well, it's pretty good I guess...

Picked a guy up as a Pterodactyl and dropped him from mountain-height.
He went squish. I ate a dead dinosaur for health.
