Excerpt: Dinosaur King (DK) is essentially a Pokemon game in disguise. Whilst DK has a few ideas of its own, it doesn\’t take much time with the game to realise that it is heavily influenced by the incredibly popular Pokemon series that has seen several releases on Nintendo\’s handheld consoles. Unfortunately, despite the similarities between DK and Pokemon, DK falls a little short of the quality exuded by the Pokemon titles.
Excerpt: Repetition’s a killer, especially when you’re repeating something that was never that brilliant in the first place. Just ask Assassin’s Creed ; its visuals and character control were near perfect yet the gameplay suffered because of how repetitive things became. Unfortunately, Dinosaur King comes across the same amount of problems and more, which stop it from being a worthy title for anyone other than dinosaur enthusiasts, or fans of the popular ‘Dinosaur King’ card game...
Excerpt: Sometimes a game comes along that defines a genre, and you get a plethora of lesser games following in its footsteps, attempting to emulate what made the original game so great. Sadly Dinosaur King isn’t one of those genre defining games, but it is one of those that comes in the aftermath of such a game, that being Pokemon in this case. Yep, Dinosaur King is a Pokemon clone, but coming from Sega, a developer of some repute, it’s not without expectations of its own.
Excerpt: Dinosaur King is based on the Japanese anime of the same name, which follows the adventures of Max Taylor and Rex Owen, two boys who are members of the D-Team. The D-Team is an organisation that study and revive dinosaurs, as well as thwart the schemes of the evil Alpha Gang. The game has a lot to offer for fans: you can collect and train over 70 different dinosaurs, there are regular appearances by characters from the anime, and you can even battle other players online.
Excerpt: On the surface Dinosaur King appears to be a game targeted at children and exclusively to fans of the show. Luckily for all involved, and to the credit of the developers, this isn't necessarily the case.
Conclusion: Quoiqu'il en soit, bien qu'il soit plutôt complet et ayant une histoire bien niaise, ce titre est extrêmement médiocre à moins d'être un amoureux de la série (si, si, il y en a, il suffit de regarder les messages de nos vidéos DK sur YouTube) et que vous connaissez parfaitement l'univers Dinosaur King (vous pouvez ajouter un point de plus à la note finale).
Excerpt: Si te dijeran: oye, vamos a jugar a piedra, papel o tijera, tú posiblemente dirías que no, que para qué jugar a esos arcaicos juegos para pobres pudiendo jugar a Pokémon. Si ese mismo que te propuso hacer manitas competitivamente te dijera: ¡pero oye, que también jugaremos a Pokémon!, te lo empezarías a pensar.
