Summary: Parents need to know that this is a Pokemon-inspired game that imparts some knowledge about dinosaurs as you collect them. While there is violence, you never see blood or even the dinosaurs hitting each other.
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: 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).
