Jurrasic-Sized Update and DLC Released!

The Jurassic-Sized Update

The long awaited graphical update to Dino D-Day fixes some issues that our community has noticed, bugs that were hampering gameplay, brings an entirely new version of the Source engine (Portal 2) to the game, and also brings a huge facelift to characters, animations, environments, weapons, and props. You’ll see some models that have been replaced, and others are completely new. We hope you will enjoy fighting the great dinosaur war all over again inside the newer, better looking, better playing Dino D-Day. Oh, and did we mention it’s free? Check out some additional before and after shots here.

Dino D-Day: Last Stand

The pulse-pounding co-op survival game where you and your friends play through 10 intense waves of snarling Nazi Dinosaurs is out of beta and ready for you to join the team. As you fight, you’ll pick up gold from every kill you make, and can spend it in the new Quartermaster store on upgrades, special abilities, new weapons and animal companions. Our old friend Trigger is there, alongside new addition Vengeance Goat, a goat who--with the help of an allied supplied Tesla coil--serves out revenge on his former masters the old fashioned way: electrocution. If you’ve chosen your friends and your upgrades wisely you might just survive to face the rocket-firing “Red Baron,” a big beast faster and meaner than anything you've faced before. Available now on Steam.

One additional note on both of these game changers: We are actively working on refining the play experience, even after we've launched. We expect to make some tweaks as we receive feedback from players, so let us know what you think! We've had our dedicated team of beta testers working for months now, and we feel like the game plays well and is much better looking. However, we want the input of our entire base to really fine tune Dino D-Day in a way that satisfies both new players and those who have been around for years. We appreciate all of you and hope you enjoy what we've done!

About This Game

The year is 1942. Adolf Hitler has succeeded in resurrecting dinosaurs. The reptilian horde has trampled Europe and the Mediterranean. Can nothing stop the Nazi’s dinosaur army?
Dino D-Day is a frantic, action-packed multiplayer game that transports you to a World War II that should have been. You and your friends can battle online choosing to serve the cause of the Allied nations or the Nazis. The Allied side includes seven playable characters including Trigger, a Protoceratops rescued from the Nazis. Each Allied class has unique weapons and abilities to use in combat. Gun down a Dilophosaur with your trusty M1 Garand, blast a kamikaze pterosaur out of the sky with your Thompson sub-machine gun, or toss out a dead jackrabbit to lure a raptor into a trap.
As an Axis player you will have your choice of three human classes and four dinosaur classes. Ambush your enemy with speed and stealth as the Raptor, mercilessly pound the enemy with a heavy 20mm gun as the Desmatosuchus, rampage through enemy groups as the Dilophosaur or pick up a body and throw it at an enemy for a double kill! Or if you prefer a rifle in your hand, the German soldier classes are the perfect complement to their dinosaur comrades.
You’ve played World War II games before…but have you played a World War II game with dinosaurs?

When you first buy the game and start playing, you might be a bit lost. Nothing seems to fit in, you can't score any kills and seems like everybody is out to get only _you_. Then you start to learn the maps, game modes, classes and the speed of games. Kill-Death ratio starts to turn, as hours spent in game pass. No dinosaur, big or small, poses a threat to you. And every dinosaur you handle, reaps through the ranks of your enemies. You run, fly and pounce through fields where bullets, grenades and goats fly. This has become your another home.

And after all this, you notice that the fun hasn't disappeared even for a moment. You just continue playing and make friends in the process. Then play some more.

This is your usually WWII FPS, almost, but dinosaurs were necessary to add something new to them

The bad thing is, it doesn´t have a story mode or campaing (so don´t expect a scientific explanation for the dinosaur, axis just revived them, give weapons, and tried to change the world war course.

Dead records are exactly the same of TF2....

I whonder why Stalin appears on Allies winning if there aren´t a single russian there.

America faction only have one dinosaur, but every class have their own weaponry (and nacionality).
But don´t worry you still can fight for uncle Sam

Interesting facts:

-Goats can be can be thrown
-T-rex is not only in the game image, it can be used (and being OP of course) in 2 specific open maps (But no triceratops )
-Press "f" as dinosaur to P-I-S-S.
-I bet no ones notices the Zeppelins in the background
-Bot names are from famous and real people (Henry Fonda, Audie Murphy, Charlie Chaplin....)

Nazi Dinosaurs with Cannons and Machine Guns on their backs. What more do I have to say?



Dino D-Day is a humorous WWII Multiplayer FPS about what would happen if not only did Adolf Hitler's science teams brought the dinosaurs back to life, but also gave them nerve controlled weapons, the intellegence to comprehend language, ideology, nationality, and not eat their masters? You get this silly game where Dinosaurs have cannons, machineguns, their own claws and abilities, and even suicide bombing mini dinos; I'm not kidding. The game got it's start as a single player mod for Half Life 2, but it was scrapped apparantly and it's assets turned towards a multiplayer game.

There are two teams, The Allies, and the Axis. With some memebers of either having special abilities to use.

The Allies are John Hardgrave (The Leader), who uses either the M1 Garand or the M1 Carbine. His ability is when he gets three kills, he can go into a Patriotic beserk spree! Punching facists with his super fists high into the air!

Then there's Joe Spencer, he uses either a Tommy Gun or a Grease Gun, his specialty is calling in artillary strikes onto a part of the map, which is useful for either clearing a certain chokepoint of enemies, or dealing damage to critical targets.

Up next is Nigel Blythe, English Gentleman with a Shotgun, and his choice of either a rocket launcher or a flame thrower to light those jerries up!

Supporting from the rear is Ilona Vike, cute as a button but sharp as a razorblade. This Soviet Rose is the sniper of the team and utilizes her rifle, her revolver for back up, and a dead rabbit to distract certain dinos into losing control and eating, leaving them vulnerable to either Ilona herself, or her comrades.

Supporting at the front is also Camille Brun the medic, she heals nearby teammates with her special or can chuck heal oozing medpacks for teammates to gather around.

Finally, there's Trigger, the wonder dino! Liberated from the Nazi Army, Trigger is the only Dino the allies have, and he's as deadly as he is cute, getting revenge on the long long hunt from carnivores millenia ago, Trigger uses his nerve controlled, swivel mounted 30. Browning Machine Gun on Facists, wether beast or man.


The Axis forces only have three humans, being mostly comprised of Facist dinosaurs!

Kurt Streicher is a simple soldier with no abilities to speak of, Armed with his rifle, his MP40, and some grenades, he does good on the front on his own.

Karl Hissman is the more interesting German, being a falconer, he's trained explosive, suicide Pterosaurs to fall onto where ever he points at, killing anyone nearby (Did I mention you can, if lucky, lock the Pterosaur onto an enemy?). Aside from that, he serves as the team's sniper against Ilona.

The final Human is Don Graff, the Medic and Vetrinarian for the Axis war machine. be wary that even though he is a simple medic, he is armed with an STG44.

The Facist Dinos include the classic Velociraptor, who can use his speed to surprise and overwhelm enemies, and even pounce onto them to rip their throats out.

The Dilophosaurus can pick up one of the many goats (did I mention there's goats in this game?) and lunge them at enemies for damage and laughs, as well as the ability to knock down enemies, pick them up, and toss them for a double kill!

The Desmatosuchus is a walking tank, armed with a medium but still powerful tank turrent, he can supress enemies and kill with splash damage. Be mindful that he and his spikes are big, so it's not easy to get through certain doorways.

The Stygimoloch is the Desmatosuchus, but more mobile, agile, less bulkly, and has a MG34 Machine gun instead of a cannon. He is the German Trigger.

The Microraptor can do it all! He can fly, claw people to death when they don't know it, and blind people with a deadly acid spit, while clawing them to death!

The Compsognathus, or Compy for short, is a suicide bomber dino, though small and his bomb is just a stick grenade, he is still fanatical, and with three kills from his claws, turns his grenade from a weak firecracker, to a powerful bomb that can kill many, and set others aflame!


Finally the grand daddy of them all, only avaliable on certain maps, The Tyrannosaurus Rex! You can't spawn as him, rather there's a "waiting list" on the Axis team where a random player gets selected to become the Rex until either the end of the round, or death where upon another player is randomly chosen. He is nasty, Armed with two MG42s on the sides of his head, able to pick up and toss airplane bombs, he also uses his might roar to knock down enemies and if they're unlucky enough, The T-Rex can pick them up and eat them for health! His only problem is his pure size and slowness, making him a target for everyone.



The game comprises of three modes. Team Deathmatch (First team to 50 kills wins), King of the Hill (The side that controls the hill point for 3 minutes wins.), Control Points (First team to capture all points wins.), and Objective mode. Otherwise the game is your typical FPS combat, with the Allies being more for group tactics and shooting, while the Axis Dinos are more arena shooter.

Overall this is a fun cheap game, I got this for $1.99 when it was on sale the other day, and it's worth the money if you can find a crowded server. The game is active with a couple of players, so no worries about finding a big game. I would indeed reccomend this game.

Pros:

-Fun Gameplay
-Gunplay is good
-Dinoplay is amazing
-Cheap

Cons:

-Weird Control choices (Holding the aim button while in toggle mode won't let you fire your gun, this can be switched to hold down though.)

This game is fun. No matter your skill, no matter your system, no matter the class you choose. This game embodies the ultimate dream of all young boys and I can assume many young girls. WW2 mixed with Dinos I mean it's magic! I awaited this game from the moment I heard of it. It's surprising a game like this took so long to come out. But the similarity to UT is what really makes this game fun for old school gamers. Let's be honest ever since Halo and CS ruined gaming forever people have been waiting for a game that isn't realistic. If I wanted to crouch and steady myself before every shot I'd go play paintball. I want to jump and flip like a jackass while some poor sap tries to shoot the ball of rubber I've become. It's simple the matrix was cool that's what I want from a game... any game. That said the graphics are ok at best but the gameplay more than makes up for it. The only real problem I have is getting hung up on walls and corners it's sort of the one button mouse of gaming. A nearly unforgivable sin since it was fixed in most games long ago. All things considered it's a great little number I'll be playing for years to come. -SEF

Ok, I'll be honest, I LOVE THIS GAME!!! Its addictive, fun entertaining and over the top! I'm only gonna review the game BEFORE the major update and BEFORE the DLC so here it goes:

The numbers:

Graphics: 5/10. Not too good but not the worst. If this review was an electoral voting system grapics would count for 1. All i'm saying: It doesn't matter. Don't be turned off by it!

Controls: 8/10. Like TF2.

Handling: 7/10. Advrage FPS game 'feel'.

Story: 6/10. Not much but it does have somthing, and now with the past few updates has come more explamation.

Game play: 10/10. This is what makes the game great. It is like a lower level COD multiplayer game but with DINOS!!! multiple classes and assortments of weapons allows you to be able to blast through hours of fun! Cant't stress this factor enough!!!

Creativity: 2 part rating here: 8/10
a. FPS: Done before, nothing special.
b. Dinos: Over the top. One of 3 games on steam that have 'FPS Dino' theme.

Price: 10/10. Was FREE at one point but normally goes on sale for $2.50 so save your pennies!!!!!

Hype: 10/10. Thought was gonna be good but ended up being Great!


Over all: 8/10 Very Fun! Must have!!!

NOTE: This is a review for BEFORE THE DLC AND BETA CAME OUT!!! Saved all that for another review.

The tide of World War II is about to change. Dinosaurs have been resurrected by the Axis to be the formidable foe against the Allies. I bought this game years ago and went in thinking it was a single player first person shooter. You vs dinosaurs! Maybe I should read descriptions. Dino D-Day is a multiplayer online first person shooter set in the 1940s. There are 9 maps to choose from and a server list to find a game. You can even play offline or alone with bots and its every bit as fun.

The teams each have their own characters. I hesitate to say classes, because everyone feels unique. Sure both teams have a medic, but they're both different. Each of the 16 characters are different and relegated to humans and dinosaurs. The Axis has six dinosaur characters and three humans. The Allies have six humans and one dinosaur named Trigger. The dinosaurs have longer stamina to run around the map, so they don't run head on into gunfire from humans. Humans are weaker, but to balance it, they're smaller. The bigger the dinosaur, the more health it has. Changing between characters is easy like Team Fortress 2.

The dinosaurs all play differently and it doesn't take that long to understand how they work. Maybe 10 minutes to be effective and efficient killers. Trigger, on the Allies side plays in 3rd per-dinosaur. He can jump and use a machine gun that needs to cool down. On the Axis, there's a Stygimoloch that plays similar with a cool down machine gun. Desmatosuchus is a slow tank that takes a lot of damage, fires very slowly and murders quickly. To balance him, he's a slow mover and so wide he can't fit through normal doorways. There is a raptor that is fast, plays in first per-dinosaur, melee kills quick, can leap, a high jump and pounce with the alt fire button in the air. A bigger dilophosaurus in 3rd person that can quickly run and head ram things to death. Not just that, it can pick up one of the goats found in most maps and heave them at the Allies. Compsognathus is the smallest third person dinosaur. Because of this, you're under the sight line of most humans. Your lack of health is gained in stealth. Plus, you can simply explode at will. Its beautiful. The final dinosaur is the Microraptor that plays in first dinosaur. It has wings and while it can't fly it can flap to keep it in the air to spit acid that blinds enemies. Not just that, but it can cling to walls and ceilings. Cling, but not wall run or anything like that.

It is the gameplay diversity and the uniqueness of all characters that really set this game apart. The humans all have their own weapons that not only feel good to use, but effective too. Most of the weapons except the shotguns have iron sights with their alt fire button.

On the Allies, you have Hardgrave, with a gun, a pistol, a grenade and his bare fists to box with dinosaurs. Spencer has his primary weapon, a pistol, his fists and a sticky bomb. Lob it out, stick it to an enemy and watch as they bring it home. Piat is the heaviest human, he uses a shotgun, a rocket launcher that only holds one rocket at a time to balance it out and smoke grenade. No fists, no melee, just big damage. Vike is a sniper, with a pistol and a rabbit. Why a rabbit? Its bait. If a carnivorous (or omnivorous) dinosaur finds the rabbit, they eat, disabling them, which gives Vike time to user her sniper rifle for one dead dino. Camille is the medic of the Allies, but in Dino D-Day the medic packs are different. She throws out the pack and when her team is near the pack, they regenerate health. So she can help her team with a machine gun, luger and fists if need be. Frank is the last member of the allies, he has a machine gun, a one shot shotgun, grenades, his fists and his devilishly good looks. Over on the Axis side, you have Streicher with a gun, machine gun, stick grenade and knife. Allies use fists, sissies like the Axis use knives. Hissman is the sniper who has a luger, stick grenade and knife. He can also summon a pterodactyl to dive bomb and explode. Wolfgang is the medic of the Axis with a machine gun, luger, knife and medi-pack.

Dino D-Day has undergone a major graphics change and the artwork looks fantastic. It has an art style true to the 1940s propaganda. Ole time radio broadcasts on the main menu go a long way for making an immersive experience. The game has come a long way in three years. There are more maps and better graphics, even after all this time. The game also has taken out references to Hitler and swastikas. There are now black crosses in white circles on red banners. So it still feels like Nazi swastikas, but its not. That's still okay. It doesn't hinder the fun.

In case you haven't heard, the game uses the Source engine. So there are a lot of comparisons between this game and other Source games like Counter-Strike: Global Offense and Day of Defeat. It plays as easily as those games with a lot of freedom to tailor the controls to what you want them to be. A lot of the maps feel like they could be in CS:GO. They feel like deserts and small villas, all while having elements of dinosaurs in them.

The Axis is the red team with blue health and the Allies are the blue team with red health. It is a bit confusing in the game. I say red and blue, because of the color of their logos. There are no actual team colors. Characters have their own non team specific attire, which can make it confusing on the battle field. How does a new player know what team that player is on? If they're on your team, they have a logo floating above their head. Anything else should get shot and killed. The problem is seeing things. A lot of times the players blend in. The night maps make it difficult to see other players, which is good for a stealth advantage. Shorter dinosaurs can hide in grass.

Each of the maps has three or four modes: Deathmatch, King of the Hill, Control Points and a few maps have objectives. The objectives in those maps are pretty simple. The allies will pick up a bomb in their spawn room and set the bomb at a specific target. The bombs take a few moments to arm, then throw and then they explode after ten seconds or so. It doesn't feel like a game changer. Speaking of the spawn room, you can find unlimited health and ammo. Outside of the base, its tougher to find health. Enemies drop ammunition. Even if you're a raptor that doesn't need ammunition, by picking it up, you're denying the enemy from having it.

Some maps are designed for T-rex deathmatches. These maps have the deadly giant under Axis control. A player from the Axis is randomly selected to be the tyranical beast. As T-rex you move slowly through the streets in a third person view, using a dual machine gun that needs to cool down. The T-rex can also belt out a roar that knocks the human Allies off their feet. Not your allies, I mean 'the Allies.' Once they're off their feet, you can slowly march over to them and eat them for extra health. You'll be lucky to eat someone, it doesn't happen that often. Playing as the T-rex is a lot of fun and even playing against it is a lot of fun. Sure the rex is only on the Axis team, but its balanced to the point where its so giant that all you need to do is run to a smaller area where it can't get you. Then its forced to waste time walking around buildings through giant openings to find where the action went to.

In all, it might sound like a gimmick, but there is fun here. Not just the premise. The game feels balanced. There are a few ways to play to have your own fun. There are now dinosaurs on both teams so people don't flood to the Axis side saying, 'dinoz yay the new kittenz of the game world!' The developers have updated and upgraded the graphics. The Source engine is a great engine to play a first person shooter. The community is still playing the game. Give it a try again if its not your first time. It has been on sale for $1.
