    THE VR GAME for me so far. Like being in an old Jurassic Park arcade game / film. Spent an hour on my first game, which for an action VR title is not the norm up to now. And just fun not exhausting like some are. Movement is easy, dinosaurs maybe also a bit too easy at the moment, but they act independently and can sneak up on you. Gun play is good. Graphics not as strong as the screenshots but good enough. No frame rate / sickness issues. Give it a go - you won't regret it. Not as polished as Raw Data but I enjoyed it much more so far. Well done to the devs for the most "fun" "normal" VR game I've played (and I've played almost all). More modes / missions asap pls.

    So, cast you minds waaaayyyyy back to the game Trespasser. If you don't remember it, YouTube it. Oh my days that game was before its time. This game reminds me favourably of it. It's difficult to be too critical, it's early access like most major titles on the store, I've bought with the hope there will be regular updates and that developers learn from reviews and comments. a few issues with item jerkiness when holding, controllers buzzing for no reason (in the start up screen), unable to shoot through light grass/shrubbery and the lack of variety with weapons and dinosaurs but I'm sure this is going to change. (You earn money, and this goes down as your score. Let me spend it on upgrades!!). One last thing. Respawning enemies, hate it in any game but it keeps you on your toes and this is the point of arena type games like this I'm hoping this isn't going to be an arena type game. I'd love a game like this to be a survival to a goal, traversing landscape to an eventual finish point with set pieces, physics problems etc (much like trespasser; again, awesome game, google it) Don't pass on this title, support the Devs. Plenty of jump scares, feel like a BAWS opening a loot crate with one up outstretched with a weapon defending yourself. This is going to blossom

    I like it! Performance isn't the best right now, but it's certainly playable. I've played two runs so far, my first time through I thought it seemed a little too easy, I went back to the extraction point after collecting 5 loot boxes. My second time around I found a crowbar and an axe in the starting area and decided to go as long as I could with just melee weapons. That proved to be a pretty fun way to play, but then in the middle of fighting off a pack of raptors, my axe broke. I frantically reached for my backpack with one hand while I was still fending off the raptors with my crowbar, pulled out a gun and finished them off. By this point I was pretty deep into the jungle and dino spawns seemed a lot more intense. I ended up barely escaping with my life that time around. I was pleased to see that the difficulty does seem to ramp up the deeper you go. Overall, one of the better experiences on the vive. Some minor bugs that will annoy you, but I'm sure they will get fixed sooner rather than later. I hope. These include things like the laser sight not working half of the time, some difficulty pulling guns out of the backpack... and now that I'm trying to list them I think those are the only real bugs I ran into.

    MAN I LOVE THIS GAME! Needs online co-op and also its still early phase. Still good. I mean it will make you jump sometimes.
  • tveith

    Aug 28, 2016

    Although this is definitely a good start, there are some issues and enhancements that need to be addressed. There is a fair amount of clipping. The dinosaurs walk through plants, cars, and even through YOU. At the beginning of the game, a dinosaur tried to attack me through a turned over car and got stuck there. At one point, I ended up in a tree house. While attempting to grab a bat, I lost my gun under a wooden plank. It was almost impossible to pick it up again until after about a hundred attempts, I was finally able to time it right to hit it with the bat. Then the gun flew through a wooden plank to the corner of the tree house. Two problems with this: a) I should not have been able to hit the gun through a solid piece of wood. b) The depth of the game is definitely a little bit off as it seems almost impossible to pick up an object while you are elevated in a tree house or tower (note: I calibrated my Vive immediately before playing this game, so it definitely wasn't the floor calibration.) Also, the cargo boxes that are dropped by parachute should be a little shorter so it is easier to open the boxes for ammo, weapons, etc. The BIGGEST problem: I felt NO sense of danger while playing this game. There are two reason for this. 1) THE SOUND!!! The sound really needs to be improved in this game. You need a creepier background score. Also, you are on a dinosaur island yet you never hear any dinosaurs in the distance. The only time you hear the dinosaurs is when they are running toward you to attack. The annoying little dinosaurs make a very stupid sound "flot flot flot" and the bigger dinosaurs sound like my Uncle when he has an asthma attack. 2) When the big dinosaurs come running toward you to attack, the camera should shake, you should hear the pounding of their footsteps on the ground, and the roar of their battle cry (this would scare me!!!) 3) There is very little variety of dinosaurs. The little ones always charge first, making their stupid noise, and it becomes very boring and monotonous. The medium and large dinosaurs look the same. A wider variety of dinosaurs with some random attack patterns would definitely ramp up the feeling of danger. As an example, I was really hoping for something like The Brookhaven Experiment or HordeZ -- but with dinosaurs. Can you really kill a raptor or larger dinosaur by hitting it a few times with a baseball bat?? I think not. I really wanted to like this game -- I just didn't feel the "danger" you would feel being dropped on an island with dinosaurs. Until the "danger factor" is ramped up considerably, the sound is improved, the clipping is fixed, and the variety / attack patterns of the dinosaurs is improved, I can't recommend this title as more than a casual play. I'll adjust my review if future updates improve this title.

    An instant hit, The basic gameplay gives the impression of a full robust the game. Great survival mode, frantic fun just needs more varied content & modes for more playability. Big Thumbs up to this early access Open world, FPS, Survival sim i've now got high hopes for the final product!
  • ChumpDragon

    I hope this turns into something good, I think it has potential as a concept, but the gameplay and controls feel awkward at the moment and the game gets dull fairly quickly. The graphics need work as well. I'll check back in 6 months and change the review if it improves. Defintetly worth getting if it's on sale for £5 (definitely no more than £10) for an hour or two of fun but I'm not sure I'd pay more for it at this stage.

    Clever gurl... or not. The game overall is pretty close to a full title and gives me great hope in things to come. Only thing I didn't like was the AI was the same and pretty easy overall. Graphics are really cool and the concept is really great. Definitely worth a buy!

    Wow, this is one of my favourite games on Vive. You get to stalk and hunt dinosaurs.. Or be hunted.. Good graphics, well optimised, good sound. Releases are well tested and clearly operated by professional devs. Some usual early access game quirks but nothing that will turn me off over all.

    [b]tl;dr - This game is really good, and a must have if you're a dinosaur nut like me. [/b] This is one of the most immersive and polished games I've played on the HTC Vive. The environment is fantastic even on lower settings, and the dinosaurs feel real. There are still some minor AI issues here and there, but they're the exception rather than the norm. I've been following the development of this game for a while now, and I'm pleased to see that the devs aren't falling short in adding new content and taking in community feedback. It's always a risk with early access, but I feel like it's a good investment. Currently the gameplay is limited to two modes and three maps. Arcade mode is essentially a nice wave shooter with unlocks for a character progression path that will later be implemented for the second mode. Mercenary mode involves a unique mission per map, and that's where the heart of the game currently is. Weapons feel good for the most part. There are a few glitches here and there, but I'm willing to forgive that given everything the devs are working on. They line up beautifully with the controllers. I would love to see a bit more variety in the future, perhaps with more/better thrown weapons. Bringing the controller back to where a quiver would be to load an arrow is a nice addition to bow use. There are a range of ways to move through the game. You can sprint or teleport, and use either the headset or controller to point to your destination. They've also added trackpad movement which, while definitely not for everyone, is pretty cool. That level of inclusiveness is encouraging. I definitely think the game could do with a few more dinosaurs. The levels are big enough for them. I can understand if the devs would rather spend time tweaking those that are already in the game though for now. [b]In conclusion: Island 359 is well developed for its early access status. The game is far from complete, but the current content is engaging, immersive and (the occasional glitch aside) relatively polished. Nothing quite compares to the terror of turning around and discovering a raptor creeping up on you. If you love dinosaur games, buy it right now. The devs are frequently adding more content and improvements. This game is 100% worth its price, and is one of the best VR experiences I have had to date.[/b]

    This is a must-have title. Island 359 does it right on all accounts: -Great graphics -Variety of weapons -Decent sized maps -Variety of enemy types including a T-Rex -Free roaming locomotion It's intense, fun and has insanely high replay value. There's nothing crazier than a herd of raptors racing towards you as you quickly try to reload from the last wave of dinos that you just blasted. This is one of those games that I don't think gets the recognition it deserves. Every time you hear about the Vive people say you have to have the Brookhaven Experiment. That's a great game but it's just a standing wave shooter. This game far surpasses it and should be an immediate buy for everyone's VR collection.

    Unfortunately, the game gets old fast as you just wander around and slaughter as many dinosaurs as you can. There is no reason as to why you do it. There is no purpose other than to just look for more dinosaurs to kill. The dinosaurs themselves look big and imposing but that's the only thing I find that the game has going for it. I really want to like it but I just can't in good conscience recommend this game given it may entertain you only for the first two playthroughs.

    I don't know what happened over time, because when I first bought this game a long time ago, it was a blast to play. Now? Dinosaurs spawn in the sky and fall down to earth, the game looks worse somehow, and the AI suffered a serious blow to the head. I would have recommended this game before whatever update ruined it, but now I can't.

    Anyone with a VR headset needs this game in their library. This is literally the closest thing your going to get to a VR version of the game Trespasser and the best thing of all..... It's not a wave shooter :)

    I shouldn't even be writing this reveiw as Island 359 is only halfway to having its full release, but for anyone thinking about purchasing this game now, you need to know a couple of things. Positives: -Unlike most other VR games, Island 359 has very simple controls in which you free roam around multiple maps. You can select which style of movement is most comfortable for you, and move smoothly through forests and rocky paths. -The graphics are outstanding for a VR game. -Excellent effort for all the textures, models created. -Realistic animations of the foliage swaying to the wind and dinosaurs being dinosaurs. -Very entertaining gameplay as how you are overwhelmed with where to go or what to do whenever. -The developers are very helpful and respectful, as if you find a bug they will always fix it for you. -Very good system where you can hear 360* surround sound, it is a very helpful feature during gameplay. -Lots of good mechanics to save progress and purchase (with in-game coins) items. Negatives: -There are occasional bugs here and there which you could lose progress, but like I said, the developers will always fix it for you. -It gets quite repetitive after about 30 minutes with all the running around and killing dinos, so don't play for more than 1 hour at a time. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who would like a incredible experience from a game in VR.

    Considering how long the game had been in early access and it's part of the Viveport subscription service, I'm shocked this game never got more attention. Hunting and being hunted by dinosaurs is always fun, I don't care who you are. OK so let's get right to the point, is this game worth $25? I don't know about that, but if you find it on sale for even $20 you definitey should get it if you want to go to Jurassic Park in VR. It's the closest thing out there (Ark Park was a let down). There are three game modes. They consist of Mercenary (which is you being dropped off on an island - either a jungle or a beach) and you hunting down dinosaurs to earn currency for the survival mode. The longer you play the more dangerous it gets (there are day/night cycles) and the more risk/reward plays in. If you die you lose everything, however if you come back to the base camp you will keep your currency and can even save your items in the locker. The risk is though, if you come back too early you never get much loot or money and if you stay too long you may be a TRex snack. There is the typical wave shooter mode called Arcade. Basically it transports you to various parts of the environments and you shoot waves of dinosaurs before being transported somewhere else. This is mostly 180 degrees, but there are sometimes dinosaurs behind you. I would consider this a weak mode but it's fun for VR newbies. Finally there is the survival mode. This is kind of the heart of the game. Using the currency you earned from Mercenaries you should be able to get a few items to start with and you have to survive as long as possible with the dinosaurs on the island. This is both scary (being hunted) and funny as you eat dinosaurs to survive. You also will discover what happened to the inhabitants of the island but really that's a small part of the mode. There actually is a lot of content here and there are tons of options for everyone. You can use full locomotion, teleporting, or various hybrids of both. You also can up the difficulty (with higher rewards) or lower it depending on how sporting you want to be. On higher difficulties the game can actually be fairly scary. Audio wise it's nothing great but it gets the job done of convincing you that you're in a wild jungle filled with inhabitants. Graphics wise I feel that is the biggest letdown. I have the settings on epic (1070 gtx) and it still doesn't look great but at least the framerate is consistent. Honestly it's pretty ugly for the most part, reminding me of a budget PS2 game. That said you kind of just blow it off the first time you see the scale of a large dinosaur chasing you down and you're unloading everything you have on it. Pick it up if it's on sale. It's more exciting than Robinson The Journey (but uglier) and way better than Ark Park.

    Nice Concept but sadly it was abandoned by the dev´s. No hard feelings since the vr market is small and its hard to survive with so little customers but still sad for the game it could have been. Not really worth buying in this state. Maybe if the dev´s pick it up again.
  • Pyrolis

    Feb 2, 2020

    So, first off, the games graphics are decent, I'll give it that. However, it feels like it has many of downfalls. I will, of course, list them. First off is the AI. It just has a lazy feel to it. The compies attack whether in a pack or not, the raptors don't feel like the intelligent dinosaur it feels like it should. In general they don't feel like real dinosaurs. It feels like anything will aggro them and they'll charge you no matter what. Secondly, the amount of dinosaurs. The notes in story hint at other creatures like pterosaurs or water reptiles, but none of it is seen. Their are only a handful of dinosaurs within the span of two years of it being released. Thirdly there's the weapons. The aim on the guns always feels... Off I guess? There are far to little weapons. Also guns do basically nothing. You don't really need guns because you can down a raptor with three swings of a commonly found stick. Then the bow is basically crap. The aim feels very off and its difficult to get right. Fourthly, you don't even have a point to hunting the dinosaurs anyway. They are easily avoidable and don't provide you with anything. You can't cook them, you can't gather any sort of resources. It's essentially pointless to hunt them in story mode, especially when you can't even kill the tyrannosaurus. Fifth, the story is empty. It's just bland. I expected an npc or something at somepoint, instead theirs letters explaining different parts that don't really mean anything. Sixth, the game is glitchy. The compies literally say "hop" when they move. The doors get stuck, levers get stuck and glitch, dinos glitch, the ragdoll glitches. I have countless times set something down and it either fell through the floor or flew through the roof. Seventh, the rewards for mercenary mode are pointless. I like mercenary mode itself because it feels like a vr version of carnivores. But there us no need for medicine. At first I thought you gathered supplies in mercenary and ported it over via the locker, but I soon discovered the lockers were essentially pointless. You don't use medicine in mercenary mode unless its an emergency. Those are all I can think of currently. I wanted to assess the game fairly before posting something like this, and I think I got everything I find wrong with it. I appreciate you for reading and I hope these are dealt with, or at least explained if there's some particular reason. Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    THE VR GAME for me so far. Like being in an old Jurassic Park arcade game / film. Spent an hour on my first game, which for an action VR title is not the norm up to now. And just fun not exhausting like some are. Movement is easy, dinosaurs maybe also a bit too easy at the moment, but they act independently and can sneak up on you. Gun play is good. Graphics not as strong as the screenshots but good enough. No frame rate / sickness issues. Give it a go - you won't regret it. Not as polished as Raw Data but I enjoyed it much more so far. Well done to the devs for the most "fun" "normal" VR game I've played (and I've played almost all). More modes / missions asap pls.

    So, cast you minds waaaayyyyy back to the game Trespasser. If you don't remember it, YouTube it. Oh my days that game was before its time. This game reminds me favourably of it. It's difficult to be too critical, it's early access like most major titles on the store, I've bought with the hope there will be regular updates and that developers learn from reviews and comments. a few issues with item jerkiness when holding, controllers buzzing for no reason (in the start up screen), unable to shoot through light grass/shrubbery and the lack of variety with weapons and dinosaurs but I'm sure this is going to change. (You earn money, and this goes down as your score. Let me spend it on upgrades!!). One last thing. Respawning enemies, hate it in any game but it keeps you on your toes and this is the point of arena type games like this I'm hoping this isn't going to be an arena type game. I'd love a game like this to be a survival to a goal, traversing landscape to an eventual finish point with set pieces, physics problems etc (much like trespasser; again, awesome game, google it) Don't pass on this title, support the Devs. Plenty of jump scares, feel like a BAWS opening a loot crate with one up outstretched with a weapon defending yourself. This is going to blossom

    I like it! Performance isn't the best right now, but it's certainly playable. I've played two runs so far, my first time through I thought it seemed a little too easy, I went back to the extraction point after collecting 5 loot boxes. My second time around I found a crowbar and an axe in the starting area and decided to go as long as I could with just melee weapons. That proved to be a pretty fun way to play, but then in the middle of fighting off a pack of raptors, my axe broke. I frantically reached for my backpack with one hand while I was still fending off the raptors with my crowbar, pulled out a gun and finished them off. By this point I was pretty deep into the jungle and dino spawns seemed a lot more intense. I ended up barely escaping with my life that time around. I was pleased to see that the difficulty does seem to ramp up the deeper you go. Overall, one of the better experiences on the vive. Some minor bugs that will annoy you, but I'm sure they will get fixed sooner rather than later. I hope. These include things like the laser sight not working half of the time, some difficulty pulling guns out of the backpack... and now that I'm trying to list them I think those are the only real bugs I ran into.

    Although this is definitely a good start, there are some issues and enhancements that need to be addressed. There is a fair amount of clipping. The dinosaurs walk through plants, cars, and even through YOU. At the beginning of the game, a dinosaur tried to attack me through a turned over car and got stuck there. At one point, I ended up in a tree house. While attempting to grab a bat, I lost my gun under a wooden plank. It was almost impossible to pick it up again until after about a hundred attempts, I was finally able to time it right to hit it with the bat. Then the gun flew through a wooden plank to the corner of the tree house. Two problems with this: a) I should not have been able to hit the gun through a solid piece of wood. b) The depth of the game is definitely a little bit off as it seems almost impossible to pick up an object while you are elevated in a tree house or tower (note: I calibrated my Vive immediately before playing this game, so it definitely wasn't the floor calibration.) Also, the cargo boxes that are dropped by parachute should be a little shorter so it is easier to open the boxes for ammo, weapons, etc. The BIGGEST problem: I felt NO sense of danger while playing this game. There are two reason for this. 1) THE SOUND!!! The sound really needs to be improved in this game. You need a creepier background score. Also, you are on a dinosaur island yet you never hear any dinosaurs in the distance. The only time you hear the dinosaurs is when they are running toward you to attack. The annoying little dinosaurs make a very stupid sound "flot flot flot" and the bigger dinosaurs sound like my Uncle when he has an asthma attack. 2) When the big dinosaurs come running toward you to attack, the camera should shake, you should hear the pounding of their footsteps on the ground, and the roar of their battle cry (this would scare me!!!) 3) There is very little variety of dinosaurs. The little ones always charge first, making their stupid noise, and it becomes very boring and monotonous. The medium and large dinosaurs look the same. A wider variety of dinosaurs with some random attack patterns would definitely ramp up the feeling of danger. As an example, I was really hoping for something like The Brookhaven Experiment or HordeZ -- but with dinosaurs. Can you really kill a raptor or larger dinosaur by hitting it a few times with a baseball bat?? I think not. I really wanted to like this game -- I just didn't feel the "danger" you would feel being dropped on an island with dinosaurs. Until the "danger factor" is ramped up considerably, the sound is improved, the clipping is fixed, and the variety / attack patterns of the dinosaurs is improved, I can't recommend this title as more than a casual play. I'll adjust my review if future updates improve this title.

    An instant hit, The basic gameplay gives the impression of a full robust the game. Great survival mode, frantic fun just needs more varied content & modes for more playability. Big Thumbs up to this early access Open world, FPS, Survival sim i've now got high hopes for the final product!

    I hope this turns into something good, I think it has potential as a concept, but the gameplay and controls feel awkward at the moment and the game gets dull fairly quickly. The graphics need work as well. I'll check back in 6 months and change the review if it improves. Defintetly worth getting if it's on sale for £5 (definitely no more than £10) for an hour or two of fun but I'm not sure I'd pay more for it at this stage.

    Clever gurl... or not. The game overall is pretty close to a full title and gives me great hope in things to come. Only thing I didn't like was the AI was the same and pretty easy overall. Graphics are really cool and the concept is really great. Definitely worth a buy!

    Wow, this is one of my favourite games on Vive. You get to stalk and hunt dinosaurs.. Or be hunted.. Good graphics, well optimised, good sound. Releases are well tested and clearly operated by professional devs. Some usual early access game quirks but nothing that will turn me off over all.

    [b]tl;dr - This game is really good, and a must have if you're a dinosaur nut like me. [/b] This is one of the most immersive and polished games I've played on the HTC Vive. The environment is fantastic even on lower settings, and the dinosaurs feel real. There are still some minor AI issues here and there, but they're the exception rather than the norm. I've been following the development of this game for a while now, and I'm pleased to see that the devs aren't falling short in adding new content and taking in community feedback. It's always a risk with early access, but I feel like it's a good investment. Currently the gameplay is limited to two modes and three maps. Arcade mode is essentially a nice wave shooter with unlocks for a character progression path that will later be implemented for the second mode. Mercenary mode involves a unique mission per map, and that's where the heart of the game currently is. Weapons feel good for the most part. There are a few glitches here and there, but I'm willing to forgive that given everything the devs are working on. They line up beautifully with the controllers. I would love to see a bit more variety in the future, perhaps with more/better thrown weapons. Bringing the controller back to where a quiver would be to load an arrow is a nice addition to bow use. There are a range of ways to move through the game. You can sprint or teleport, and use either the headset or controller to point to your destination. They've also added trackpad movement which, while definitely not for everyone, is pretty cool. That level of inclusiveness is encouraging. I definitely think the game could do with a few more dinosaurs. The levels are big enough for them. I can understand if the devs would rather spend time tweaking those that are already in the game though for now. [b]In conclusion: Island 359 is well developed for its early access status. The game is far from complete, but the current content is engaging, immersive and (the occasional glitch aside) relatively polished. Nothing quite compares to the terror of turning around and discovering a raptor creeping up on you. If you love dinosaur games, buy it right now. The devs are frequently adding more content and improvements. This game is 100% worth its price, and is one of the best VR experiences I have had to date.[/b]

    This is a must-have title. Island 359 does it right on all accounts: -Great graphics -Variety of weapons -Decent sized maps -Variety of enemy types including a T-Rex -Free roaming locomotion It's intense, fun and has insanely high replay value. There's nothing crazier than a herd of raptors racing towards you as you quickly try to reload from the last wave of dinos that you just blasted. This is one of those games that I don't think gets the recognition it deserves. Every time you hear about the Vive people say you have to have the Brookhaven Experiment. That's a great game but it's just a standing wave shooter. This game far surpasses it and should be an immediate buy for everyone's VR collection.

    Unfortunately, the game gets old fast as you just wander around and slaughter as many dinosaurs as you can. There is no reason as to why you do it. There is no purpose other than to just look for more dinosaurs to kill. The dinosaurs themselves look big and imposing but that's the only thing I find that the game has going for it. I really want to like it but I just can't in good conscience recommend this game given it may entertain you only for the first two playthroughs.

    I don't know what happened over time, because when I first bought this game a long time ago, it was a blast to play. Now? Dinosaurs spawn in the sky and fall down to earth, the game looks worse somehow, and the AI suffered a serious blow to the head. I would have recommended this game before whatever update ruined it, but now I can't.

    Anyone with a VR headset needs this game in their library. This is literally the closest thing your going to get to a VR version of the game Trespasser and the best thing of all..... It's not a wave shooter :)

    I shouldn't even be writing this reveiw as Island 359 is only halfway to having its full release, but for anyone thinking about purchasing this game now, you need to know a couple of things. Positives: -Unlike most other VR games, Island 359 has very simple controls in which you free roam around multiple maps. You can select which style of movement is most comfortable for you, and move smoothly through forests and rocky paths. -The graphics are outstanding for a VR game. -Excellent effort for all the textures, models created. -Realistic animations of the foliage swaying to the wind and dinosaurs being dinosaurs. -Very entertaining gameplay as how you are overwhelmed with where to go or what to do whenever. -The developers are very helpful and respectful, as if you find a bug they will always fix it for you. -Very good system where you can hear 360* surround sound, it is a very helpful feature during gameplay. -Lots of good mechanics to save progress and purchase (with in-game coins) items. Negatives: -There are occasional bugs here and there which you could lose progress, but like I said, the developers will always fix it for you. -It gets quite repetitive after about 30 minutes with all the running around and killing dinos, so don't play for more than 1 hour at a time. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who would like a incredible experience from a game in VR.

    I have two Vive Trackers and I can do karate to a dinosaur. What more do I really need?

    Considering how long the game had been in early access and it's part of the Viveport subscription service, I'm shocked this game never got more attention. Hunting and being hunted by dinosaurs is always fun, I don't care who you are. OK so let's get right to the point, is this game worth $25? I don't know about that, but if you find it on sale for even $20 you definitey should get it if you want to go to Jurassic Park in VR. It's the closest thing out there (Ark Park was a let down). There are three game modes. They consist of Mercenary (which is you being dropped off on an island - either a jungle or a beach) and you hunting down dinosaurs to earn currency for the survival mode. The longer you play the more dangerous it gets (there are day/night cycles) and the more risk/reward plays in. If you die you lose everything, however if you come back to the base camp you will keep your currency and can even save your items in the locker. The risk is though, if you come back too early you never get much loot or money and if you stay too long you may be a TRex snack. There is the typical wave shooter mode called Arcade. Basically it transports you to various parts of the environments and you shoot waves of dinosaurs before being transported somewhere else. This is mostly 180 degrees, but there are sometimes dinosaurs behind you. I would consider this a weak mode but it's fun for VR newbies. Finally there is the survival mode. This is kind of the heart of the game. Using the currency you earned from Mercenaries you should be able to get a few items to start with and you have to survive as long as possible with the dinosaurs on the island. This is both scary (being hunted) and funny as you eat dinosaurs to survive. You also will discover what happened to the inhabitants of the island but really that's a small part of the mode. There actually is a lot of content here and there are tons of options for everyone. You can use full locomotion, teleporting, or various hybrids of both. You also can up the difficulty (with higher rewards) or lower it depending on how sporting you want to be. On higher difficulties the game can actually be fairly scary. Audio wise it's nothing great but it gets the job done of convincing you that you're in a wild jungle filled with inhabitants. Graphics wise I feel that is the biggest letdown. I have the settings on epic (1070 gtx) and it still doesn't look great but at least the framerate is consistent. Honestly it's pretty ugly for the most part, reminding me of a budget PS2 game. That said you kind of just blow it off the first time you see the scale of a large dinosaur chasing you down and you're unloading everything you have on it. Pick it up if it's on sale. It's more exciting than Robinson The Journey (but uglier) and way better than Ark Park.

    Nice Concept but sadly it was abandoned by the dev´s. No hard feelings since the vr market is small and its hard to survive with so little customers but still sad for the game it could have been. Not really worth buying in this state. Maybe if the dev´s pick it up again.

    So, first off, the games graphics are decent, I'll give it that. However, it feels like it has many of downfalls. I will, of course, list them. First off is the AI. It just has a lazy feel to it. The compies attack whether in a pack or not, the raptors don't feel like the intelligent dinosaur it feels like it should. In general they don't feel like real dinosaurs. It feels like anything will aggro them and they'll charge you no matter what. Secondly, the amount of dinosaurs. The notes in story hint at other creatures like pterosaurs or water reptiles, but none of it is seen. Their are only a handful of dinosaurs within the span of two years of it being released. Thirdly there's the weapons. The aim on the guns always feels... Off I guess? There are far to little weapons. Also guns do basically nothing. You don't really need guns because you can down a raptor with three swings of a commonly found stick. Then the bow is basically crap. The aim feels very off and its difficult to get right. Fourthly, you don't even have a point to hunting the dinosaurs anyway. They are easily avoidable and don't provide you with anything. You can't cook them, you can't gather any sort of resources. It's essentially pointless to hunt them in story mode, especially when you can't even kill the tyrannosaurus. Fifth, the story is empty. It's just bland. I expected an npc or something at somepoint, instead theirs letters explaining different parts that don't really mean anything. Sixth, the game is glitchy. The compies literally say "hop" when they move. The doors get stuck, levers get stuck and glitch, dinos glitch, the ragdoll glitches. I have countless times set something down and it either fell through the floor or flew through the roof. Seventh, the rewards for mercenary mode are pointless. I like mercenary mode itself because it feels like a vr version of carnivores. But there us no need for medicine. At first I thought you gathered supplies in mercenary and ported it over via the locker, but I soon discovered the lockers were essentially pointless. You don't use medicine in mercenary mode unless its an emergency. Those are all I can think of currently. I wanted to assess the game fairly before posting something like this, and I think I got everything I find wrong with it. I appreciate you for reading and I hope these are dealt with, or at least explained if there's some particular reason. Thank you and have a wonderful day!
