About This Game

Return to Crytek’s Dinosaur Island and enjoy another glimpse into the developer’s exciting vision for VR. Back to Dinosaur Island 2 received a glowing reception when it was first shown to attendees at E3 2015 and has previously only been playable at select industry events. Now, gamers everywhere can sample the acclaimed VR demo firsthand – scaling a deadly cliff face as huge flying dinosaurs react to their presence and debris rains down from above. Mysterious landmarks on the horizon and stunning vistas on every side combine to immerse gamers in an entirely new reality.

Back to Dinosaur Island 2 has been built from the ground up to take advantage of the Oculus Rift HMD, and requires an Oculus Rift DK 2 (SDK version 0.8) to run. Please check the system requirements below. Virtual reality games require a high frame rate to guarantee a comfortable experience for the user. Running Back to Dinosaur Island 2 on weaker hardware can cause lower frame rates, which can lead to users having a less than ideal experience.

No idea how to start it. Confusing and buggy.

Poor Crytek, backing the wrong VR company. Occulas's buissness practices of late are what made me cancel my pre-order and buy a Vive instead. Horrendous DRM and blatent lying on thier kickstarter have caused many to lose faith in them as a company. Exclusivity kills innovation and will only hurt the market in the long run. When the hardware costs so much making people choose between them because of content exclusives makes a divide in the playerbase and could kill VR if its not controlled.

Artificially imposed hardware exclusive excluded me to play this title for the sake of exclusion and a new shiny pair of flip-flops.

I know once this demo is out, the dev will move on to other project. But can someone please recompile with the Oculus runtime 1.3+? Right now this demo can only run on 0.8. This cool demo really deserves to have a longer life span, so more people can enjoy the great quality backed by CryTek.

Just a suggestion. Maybe this demo should be listed "for Oculus", so that it doesn't hurt Vive users' expectation. Of course, if it can support Vive, that will be even better.

Any Oculus-exclusive game deserves to be one-starred. Exclusives are such a cheap way to hide the fact that your hardware is inferior. A very disappointed HTC Vive user.

Best VR experience as of yet. Little bit of interactivity is also very nice.

This should've been made more clear. You can only launch the game if you have a VR headset. All the application does when it starts up, is launch me to a black screen that eventually says 'Crytek'. The application is then unresponsive, and then crashes. I've read on other Steam forums. A plenty of other people have the same problem as well. Don't waste your time with this game if you don't have a VR headset.

So i decided to revisite Dinosaur Island, and let me tell you ! I DONT regret it. Simply breath taking. Crytek is in it to win it.
if this is the kind of VR experience we can expect from crytek in the future, then i`m all abord. If you have a Oculus Rift (VR Headset) this is a MUST play.

If you dont have a HMD, you can check out my video playthrough here

I played Back to Dinosaur Island Part 2 standing up and it was absolutely stunning. It's super immersive when you are climbing up and dinosaurs are diving down from your left and right. This is definitely a must try for every VR enthusiast. Here's my video review if you are interested. https://youtu.be/JykodKFLQYc

The first part left me disappointed. It was nice, but neither particularly engaging "story-wise" nor impressive tech-wise
"Back to Dinosaur Island Part 2" on the other hand, is uterly awesome and (best of all) *FUN*.
A must-have to show off VR to your friends!

Holy ♥♥♥♥! This is honestly the most excited I've been about VR since I first got my DK2! Everything was so smooth and polished and, like, not buggy! What a crazy idea! It made me want to explore this world, pulled in all these feelings of wonder and a healthy dose of vertigo. I freaking loved it!

I recommend anyone with a compatible HMD try this.

I have been so disappointed by many turns in the recent VR scene that I thought my DK2 was going to be useful from now on. And here, out of nowhere Crytek delivers one of the greatest short VR demo i've played.
Hear me out here, I've litterally played every single VR demo I've seen or heard about, that's a couple of hundreds. From very bad to incredible, i've had my share of surprises. But yet again, I'm laughing and smiling like crazy watching Dinosaurs fly past me and looking back at the perfectly rendered background that isn't for once dropping my FPS below 60.
One of the most immersive and well optimised VR demo yet. You must try while standing though, it's something else.
I only hope this isn't the last one on the DK2.
