Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Pro Review
- Huge varied environments with unique fauna.
- Realistic AI that responds to various stimuli.
- Smooth FPS-style controls.
- Headphones a must for the detailed audio-scape.
- Limited audience appeal - despite hunting dinosaurs, this does have a distinctly realistic 'hunting' feel.
For some, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter may be a hard game to appreciate thanks to just how realistic the experience can feel, however this is without a doubt a must have for hunting enthusiasts and fans of open-ended titles.

The scope and size of 'Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter' is almost difficult to truly take in on your first attempt to play this sci-fi hunting simulator by Tatem Games. This isn't an action-filled FPS and you'll need patience, skill and the steel will of a hunter to truly appreciate this mammoth title.
The game's basic controls are relatively standard for an FPS, however instead of the usual health-gauge, ammo indicator or rack of guns the interface is streamlined to provide you with all the tools you'll need to bag and tag your targets. The only major switch from most shooters is the dedicated firing mode that puts you behind the iron-sights and places your firing button high up on the side of the screen. There's no jumping, which can cause troubles in some environments, but in most cases you should be able to maneuver out of situations that would otherwise leave the player 'stuck'.
Visuals for the environment have suffered dramatically, with bland and poorly shaded textures in most areas, however the trade-off is more than worthwhile when you consider the sheer scope of the island you're playing on. Each AI creature features unique traits and behave intelligently, responding to noises you make and even your scent or the time of day.
However, it's hard to truly appreciate Dinosaur Hunter without already being keen on the sport due to the game's realistic simulation. For hunting fans this is an amazingly detailed title that's a true must-have, but casual gamers should take more care in considering this title.
