Dino Crisis 2 Ready To Take A Bite Out Of PlayStation Network

By Spencer . April 17, 2011 . 11:40am

dino2Dino Crisis 2 is on deck for a PlayStation Network re-release. The ESRB rated Capcom’s dinosaur survival game as a PSP and PlayStation 3 title with Sony Computer Entertainment America as the publisher. In Dino Crisis 2 players control Regina and Dylan, a commando literally from another time. Both of them are armed and ready to shoot velociraptors.


Interesting fact about Dino Crisis 2 – its actually made by the creator of the Ace Attorney series. Shu Takumi spearheaded this project before moving on to Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney for Game Boy Advance.

  • I guess i´ll finally be able to finish this game for once :P

    Oh nice I really enjoyed Dino Crisis 2 it was so different from the first game. That probably why I enjoyed it more than the first game.

    • d19xx

      It was more focused on the action part than scare factor and atmosphere. But it worked really well.

    I really enjoyed the 1st, hopefully the same with the 2nd.

  • PrinceHeir

    The first was the scariest game of my childhood, but that one-eyed T-Rex in this one 0_0 lol.

  • Hmmm… Never played any of this series.

      The first one is “classical” survival horror (the damn raptors follow you from room to room *shiver*). This one is all about awesome, fast gameplay.

      Nice games, but once you beat them, that’s it.

        yeah, im playing the first one now, the dinosaurs are sooo pain in the ass to kill. it took like almost a clip to kill them, though you can tranquilize them with darts, but it’s hard to find them not to mention the setting is too dark to see anything.

        add the limited items and ammo and this game is sooo challenging :P

        • [The Hunter] Doomrider

          Yeah, they’re real bullet sponges! I never used tranquilizers though, to avoid unpleasant surprises =P

        • If you combine the right items you can make death darts.
          But those are best saved for the end of the game where the raptors are alot meaner.

  • I never finished Dino Crisis 2 on PSOne, so now I have a chance!

    Wow, I just logged onto Japanese PSN Friday night and noticed Dino Crisis 2 was released last week in Japan. Nice fast turnaround! I was sort of expecting not to see it for a long time, if ever, in the US.

    For those who haven’t played it, do. It’s a great action game, much more about fast paced shooting than the plodding “traditional” survival horror style. In that way, Resident Evil 5 reminded me a LOT of Dino Crisis 2.

  • I love the sequel, I think is more repayable than the first as its mostly just shooting dinos with hardly any puzzles or really hard to find keycards.
    Getting to buy ammo and bigger weapons gives it an shooter game pace.
    Like they did with RE4.

    But beating the first one gives lots of self satisfaction as the game seems needlessly cruel most of the time.

    Heard the 2nd one was amazing, I might get it, what 2nd game I really want though is Gex 2, my fav. So fun…
