Rare takes its first shot at a true adventure-style game with Dinosaur Planet. Join mammal warriors Krystal and Sabre as they fight to save the planet from an almost invulnerable evil force.
Each has a dinosaur sidekick to help him/her in his/her quest. Control is Zelda-style, complete with Z-targeting. The game has no text to read; instead, the team went for a movie-like feel with full dialogue--hours of speech will be crammed into this cart. In the E3 demo, scenes included sneaking out of a prison Solid Snake-style and nabbing a key to set your dino friends free. Among the boss sequences we saw were a Tyrannosaur which corners you in a huge square hallway, and a Panzer Dragoon-esque battle with a huge enemy airship. Dinosaur Planet is scheduled for a holiday release.
