Carnivores HD: Dinosaur Hunter was recently released in North America, and we have been more than happy to see the gamers’ response. Since then we have gathered tons of user feedback and made a lot of improvements to gameplay, tweaking and polishing the game balance. And now we’re excited to have the game out in Europe.
Carnivores HD is a realistic hunting simulator which brings you to beautiful islands and lets you hunt for the most dangerous creatures that have ever existed. You’ll get a chance to track down Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Ceratosaurus and a T-Rex! There are also flying Pteranodons, small and peaceful Gallimimuses and cute tiny Pelecanimimuses roaming around.
Each location is a different island about four square kilometers in size, and features a unique environment. There are deserts, jungles and deep forests. Each level comes in three variations: daytime, evening, and misty.
Being a hunting simulator, the game renders wildlife realistically. Animals make use of natural senses — sight, hearing, smell — that are unique to each creature. Dinosaurs behave differently depending on the environment, weather and their injuries, so a wounded dinosaur will either attack the hunter or try to run away. Animals also interact with each other: herbivores avoid carnivores, small species avoid big ones. Dinosaurs also forage for food, water, take rests, and wander around the world.
In your arsenal you will find a rifle, crossbow, revolver and sniper rifle. All weapons can be set to non-lethal tranquiliser mode to capture dinosaurs without killing them. If you’d rather just wander around observing the wildlife and enjoy the sights, there’s an Observer Mode designed specifically for exploration.
Also there is a multifunctional device called Gadget, which will aid your hunting experience being GPS, binoculars, radar and decoy altogether. This will help you to locate dinosaurs – don’t expect just to run and gun. Following a successful hunt, you can collect your trophies and display them in your very own Trophy Room.
The controls are accessible and familiar to anyone who has played an FPS before. The game gives you an option to choose from several controller presets and is fully compatible with PlayStation Move.
If you’ve been looking for a true-to-life hunting simulator then there is no need to look any further than Carnivores HD. Pack up your gear and embark on the adventure of a lifetime!
