Carnivores Ice Age

Game Vortex
27 February 2006
  • Excerpt: One of the things that really shines in Carnivores Ice Age is the vast environment that you will be hunting in. The first one up when you start the game is called McRath Island. With snow covered rolling hills and sparse vegetation, McRath Island is a relatively easy and open area for the new hunter. It is so big, it may take you weeks to thoroughly explore all of it.. The area is well detailed graphically, even on close inspection.

  • Summary: Carnivores: Ice Age is a bad idea gone worse. I think that most hunters don't lay awake at night, fantasizing about successfully killing a wooly mammoth. I know I haven't. With negligible features, monotonous gameplay, and ghastly sounds, I suggest you never go back to the Ice Age, especially with an intention to kill anything.

Carnivores: Ice Age Review

GameSpot
30 January 2001
  • Excerpt: Published in 1998, the original Carnivores arrived just in time to cash in on the popularity of the hunting genre. One year earlier, the budget-priced Deer Hunter introduced players to this type of game, which used a first-person view to simulate the hunter having to stalk his wild prey. Carnivores took this concept one step further by placing you in a fictitious yet realistic-looking setting in which dinosaurs roamed the land.
  • Pros: N/A

  • Excerpt: Here woolly mammoth, here woolly woolly! Carnivores: Ice Age is the third instalment in WizardWorks and Action Forms' prehistoric hunting series. The original Carnivores rumbled onto the scene in January 1999 amidst a growing number of hunting titles the likes of Deer Hunter. It brought a unique twist to the hunting genre, allowing players to stalk larger-than-life dinosaurs.

Chilly reception or cool as ice?

  • Conclusion: Although it’s blessed with many of the positive attributes of its predecessor, Carnivores: Ice Age is also doesn't do enough to differentiate itself aside from the change of scenery

PC GURU
3 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Elgondolkodtál már valaha, hogy milyen élmény az, amikor végre puskavégre kaphatod az áhított vadat? Esetleg már megtapasztaltad az érzést -- netán nem csak monitor előtt ülve --, de a szarvasoknál valamivel nagyobb kihívásra vágysz? Akkor a Carnivores: Ice Age pont neked való!
  • Pros: + Szabad vadászat, határok nélkül, + Remek játékélmény, + Kellemes hangok
  • Cons: - Nincs semmilyen oktatópálya, - Mára már igencsak megkopott grafika, - Hosszabb idő után monotonná válhat

  • Summary: "Lovecké hry se øadí v žebøíèku popularity na vyšších pøíèkách. Aby ne, lov divoké zvìøe je i ve virtuální podobì úžasný. Ve vìtšinì loveckých her lovíme pøedevším lesní zvìø typu divokých prasat nebo jelenù. V pøípadì hry Carnivores: Ice Age se ovšem vydáte na lov zvíøat, na které ve volné pøírodì v dnešní dobì nenarazíte. Vaším terèe tudíž bude napøíklad šavlozubý tygr nebo také obrovský mamut.

  • Summary: Если вы не поняли ничего из вышесказанного, или вам просто недостаточно представленной информации, почитайте обзоры первой второй частей Carnivores и проникнитесь идеей выпускания самоклонов. Ну а поскольку пожелания украинской команде Action Forms стали уже моей доброй традицией с двухлетним стажем, то скажу так: “Ребят! Давайте нам нового Duke Nukem: Endangered Species ! Ну достали уже эти динозавры с мамонтами!
