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.

    MrWhite others are suggesting more cynical reasons, like promising better quality on blu ray to drive sales up. (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite large chunks of detail were just blocky, and you couldn't see shit beyond the foreground layers. It's being blamed on streaming services, but I put it down to CGI masking by making it dark as possible (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I downloaded a full, uncompressed 1080p source of it, and when I adjusted the brightness on both PC and TV, there were massive bitrate artifacting. (1 Day ago)
