Back from where? And... why? The little ones may enjoy this cutesy game where you get to control dinosaurs, but even they may get very frustrated with the less-than-responsive controls. However, the graphics are good.
Not listening to his father when he was told not to touch his latest scientific breakthrough, Jamie and Timmy entered their fathers secret laboratory to see a video. As they activated it, they were transported through television land to a place where cartoony dinos lived in a super-unreal atmosphere!
Dinosaurs has plenty of levels and special exits hidden throughout them. You meet up with two dinobuds and you can either ride them normally or dismount off of them and shoot the enemy with simple shots. Here is a great game for the family!
They don't have the high-intensity thrills of Jurassic Park, but the dinosaurs of We're Back are pretty fun nonetheless. Young gamers especially will enjoy these smiling hop-n-bop reptiles.
Rex is the biggest tourist to hit Manhattan since King Kong. He bounces around skyscrapers, climbs construction sites, and runs through subways bopping baddies and dodging obstacles. Unfortunately, he's pretty fragile. Without passwords or unlimited continues, gamers may feel like they're going extinct.
ProTip: Get off the Subway tracks quickly. Speedy trains appear every few seconds.
Technically, the game is only partly evolved. The graphics are attractive, though the human sprites are stiff and cartoony. Fortunately, the perky music changes for each level, and the dinos emit good roars. Although the control needs a quick DNA fix, you can still bet Jurassic on having fun with We're Back.
