Conclusion: When I first put Dino Crisis 3 into my Xbox I was hoping for a game that would surpass all of my survival-horror expectations. What I got was a game that has many of the features desired, but also has some major bugs that bring the overall experience down a few notches. Without the insanely awful camera system (which causes the control issues) this game could have been a contender.
Conclusion: The Dino Crisis series have always favored more action as a primary gameplay element, and the upcoming Dino Crisis 3 seems to be no exception. The combat system has been fleshed out in WASP (drones that can be released) and firearm attacks, to promote fighting multiple enemies simultaneously.

Excerpt: Dino Crisis 3 is the next installment in Capcom's dino series. This one takes place in the future in space and really is more like a side story to the whole Dino series. Did this effect the series at all or is it still the series people have grown to love?

Cons: Camera, Dino respawning, Basic story, Did I mention camera?

My expectations for Xbox games are mostly graphics over content. In some games, that was the true, but in Dino Crisis 3, I was pleasantly surprised. The truth is, Dino Crisis 3 isn’t just another pretty game, it actually has content.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Dino Crisis 3 is a solid Xbox game that could've used a bit more polish in every department to make it a more engaging experience. The game plays and controls well, has good music and very solid graphics. Despite its flaws, which mostly consisted of the camera problems, Dino Crisis 3 provided enough thrills and spills to entertained us from beginning to end. Definitely worth a look.
Excerpt: Capcom isn't a company to put a good franchise out to pasture. Case in point: Dino Crisis. The series deservedly known by many as "Resident Evil with dinosaurs" has been moderately successful in the past, so now we're getting a third installment, this time on the Xbox. The newest iteration brings a few changes in the story and gameplay categories that help to differentiate the game from the survival horror genre.
