It used to be that Dino Crisis was a more balls-out version of Resident Evil the action was faster, the ammo was in higher supply, and the monsters were more aggressive. Well, Dino Crisis 3 takes that formula, injects it with 10 times the pep, kills off the weak survival-horror controls (good riddance!), and tosses the whole thing into...space?
Yup, that's right. Dino 3 takes place about 500 years in the future on a beastie-filled spaceship named Ozymandius. The ship has been MIA for about 300 years at the game's outset when it suddenly returns to terrestrial space, jam-packed with hungry, intelligent dinosaurs. How the dinos got aboard is anyone's guess, as is how their brains grew so much. Regardless, combine these bad boys' larger cranial capacity with their gigantic jaws and razor-sharp teeth, and you have something that's superior to a human in every way. That's scary.
You won't be playing as just any human, though. Patrick, the main character, is decked out with some crazy gadgets. Coolest of all is the jetpack, which allows you to fly in any direction.
And Patrick's armed to the teeth with all sorts of futuristic heavy weaponry. He'll automatically aim his laser rifle at any creature in his field of vision, ensuring very little wasted ammo. He has some even nastier little tricks up his sleeve, too, called Wasps. They're drones that fly out of his back to seek and destroy any enemies they can find. Think about it: flying, intelligent guns. Pretty useful, considering some of the wild environments.
Speaking of which, don't think of your time inside the ship as the usual romp through access tunnels--the Ozymandius is far from your average spacecraft. Its insides are constantly shifting, with passages opening and closing, and entire room layouts morphing as you solve puzzles or time passes. From what we've seen so far, the game has a pretty large exploration component, so the dynamic environments could be pretty cool.
In any case, we're stoked Dino 3 is diverging from the stagnant survival-horror formula. But intelligent, space-pirate dinosaurs? Exactly how far is Capcom trying to take this thing?
