Dino Crisis – Sequel, Spin Off, Start Over or Stay Dead?

Welcome to this week's, "Sequel, Spin Off, Start Over or Stay Dead?" Each week they're going to look at a dormant franchise that was once pretty popular, but for some reason has disappeared into the sands of time. Diehard GameFAN staffers will have four options for what they want to have happen to the series and you can see them in the title of this piece.

This week they're looking at a series that Capcom has let sit undisturbed for five years after one of the most spectacular failures in survival-horror history. You know something had to be bad when Capcom of all publishers stopped milking, rehashing, or spinning-off a series. Still the stigma of "Dinosaurs in Spaaaaaace" is still well known throughout the gaming community and so the Diehard GameFAN staff discusses whether or not the Dino Crisis series still has some life in it or if it should be as extinct as its antagonists.

Dino Crisis 3 never happened, we need a sequel.

But not with Resident Evil 5's sluggish controls, even Lost Planet wouldn't cut it. Something more face paced and on edge.

bigrudowsky3186d ago

i hear you i want a new dino crisis oh the wonderful things they could do with this new tech.

Hellsvacancy3186d ago

To be NOTHIN like Res5, more like Dead Space

Bnet3433186d ago

I didn't hate Dino Crisis 3 like everyone else. I tried the game and it was decent but the camera was UGH! I want Dino Crisis 4. I've been asking for that game for a while now. Capcom please ...

Aw come on RE5 was great fun. Not saying Dino Crisis should be similar but RE5 was still fun. Just call it Next Gen Contra if it makes you feel better.

Anyway, Dino Crisis 1 and 2 were addictive as hell. The weapon shop/upgrades and the points system were just awesome

ceedubya93186d ago

They can get rid of the tank controls and make it more 3rd person friendly, and they can give it updated graphics and what not. I'd be happy with just that.

Panthers3186d ago

I would still want it to be a survival game. Not some action game like RE5.

Reibooi3185d ago

Personally I would like a reboot of the series starring the original characters from the first game and tweek the story a bit.

The biggest issue is making the game intense and control well at the same time. Which in this day in gaming is no easy task.

no one is attached to the characters in the game..

I say reboot it completely. i used to love that game

mastiffchild3187d ago

I am. BERY.Honestly. So don't just assume otherwise-thing is it' so long since DC2 that a reboot is needed anyway-the controls wouldn't cut it these days but the chance for some real HD dinos is unmissable, imo, and after seeing Wii's MH3 looking so damn good just imagine a PS360 TRUE DC3!

Want this SO badly as the first two games were played to death in our haouse.

Bnet3433186d ago

Bring back Regina, everyone else can stay dead.

table3186d ago

Yes Regina is the best. The icon of Dino Crisis. Probably the best game ever made to be honest.

Back in the old accolade days awesome im gonna link him to your article he will laugh for nostalgia purposes still got my original copy i fought a kid basically at toys r us to get for my 12th bday unopened.

liquidus1183187d ago

A sequel that pretends that Dino Crisis 3 never happened and carries on where 2 left off.

BlackIceJoe3186d ago

I so would love a new Dino Crisis. I really want to see what can be done to make the Dino's look more life like now. I so hope that if there is a new Dino Crisis it has a really scary fright factor. I for one hope Capcom makes a new Dino Crisis game.
