The October 25th PSN Store Update brought us not only several new games for us to try but ALSO great discounts on games! We’ve already posted about the 50% discount for PS+ subscribers on 4 Elements HD, a very fun game we reviewed already but the discounts don’t stop there!
Carnivores: Ice Age is a sequel to Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter, a game release from Beatshapers that we’ve already reviewed here at PS3Blog.net. How does this new offering stack up to the last minis release in the series? Let’s find out!
Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter is a dynamic hunting simulation game which lets players explore huge non-linear locations as they attempt to track down a variety of dinosaurs that are armed with advanced AI – these are dangerous creatures that are able to see, hear and sense the hunter. If you’re not careful, it’s very easy for the hunter to become the hunted.
With 15 different dinosaurs across 5 distinct environments including pine forests, muddy marshes and rolling hills, how you approach your target is important. Wind direction, scent and the use of a special dinosaur call are all key elements in tracking your prey.
* Interactive 3D dinosaurs, from the Herbivorous (plant-eating) for novice hunters to the Carnivorous (meat-eating) for experts;
* Choose from among 6 weapon types – from a sniper rifle to an X-bow;
* Utilize the map and radar feature to locate and track dinosaurs;
* Exciting hunting: a non-linear hunting experience where players roam through vast landscapes, tracking and hunting a variety of dinosaurs;
* Interactive Dinosaur Trophy Room
After they told us that “Catherine can boast the largest launch in the 20-year history of Atlus” and that the game “has exceeded our highest expectations”, we now can see why they’re so happy. The game sold 200,000 copies in a single week which puts it as one of the best selling Atlus releases in a while. Hope the game sells another 200,000 before the year is over so we can continue to get new IP from the fine folks at Atlus.
With Catherine’s release just around the corner the fine folks over at the Playstation.Blog have decided it was time to do a very informative Q&A session with the chaps from Atlus. Find out enough information to run out to pre-order this unique game and show some love to Atlus so they can continue to love us back!
