Back to Dinosaur Island: VR Demo

Back to Dinosaur Island: VR Demo

Last week, Crytek released for free their virtual reality demo Back to Dinosaur Island. We didn't have a good quality video at the time but now that's no longer the case so you can head inside to see how it looks or share your own impressions if you were able to try it.

"We didn't have a good quality video at the time but now that's the case" I think "not" or "no longer" is missing from your sentence? :)

It's funny how every game/movie after Jurassic Park (1993) uses the same slightly stylized interpretation of the t-rex head.

We don't know exactly how they looked, but there are many different guesses made by scientists, yet popular culture swears to the same angry/menacing looking face.

Also, that's some of the best playing i've seen in a Gamersyde video :P

Well there's not a hell of a lot more to go on other than an actual real life skull of one, which does always look "angry/menacing". It's a similar thing with a Great White shark. Those things always look scary no matter what, and no design variation will change that, otherwise it wouldn't be a Great White. Pop culture has little to do with it.

There was a marked change in how the head was designed in most games and movies after Jura park, so unless they made some (real) scientific breakthrough in pre-production of that movie i'm sure everyone else just copied that design coz it had character and looked cool. If you see drawings or models from books or documentaries they mostly have different traits.

You're welcome, glad my comment was taken in the right context, it's hard sometimes to turn off what I do for a living, ie proof read English texts!

That must be a lot of texts to make a living off them.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean they can keep upgrading it but why bother when they have more capable engines already. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it shows its age in a lot of ways in FC5 and they have better tech so they should use it. (7 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth if they still pay royalties to crytech when using it they probably should (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Although I think it's kinda time to retire Dunia. (7 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @HR2: a lot of studios used modified UE3, games like Arkham Knight, XCom2, both being very problematic on pc. Interesting to see what those studios will do for their next games. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @HR2: Ubisoft uses their own engines. They have like.. three solid in house game engines. (7 Hours ago)
  • HR2
    HR2 @Melmoth: agreed. speaking of Ubisoft, I wonder which engine they're using for the next Splinter Cell. a heavily modified UE3 like Batman AK or UE4? (8 Hours ago)
