Join the battle against prehistoric creatures as the sequel to the popular Dino Crisis game, Dino Crisis 2, will be released on the North American PSN as a PSOne classic.
We now have official word of a release date: April 19th on NA PSN.
Great news! I've played this games like a hundred times on PS1. Enjoyed the story and characters. Ending was good they should contiune it.
Dino Crisis 3 did come out but it was an original Xbox exclusive, wasn't as good, and didn't really follow the story of the first two :/
So many people told me Dino Crisis 3 is horrible but i gotta at least try it myself sometime. Cannot wait to get this game on ps3 :)
@killer I played it and enjoyed it. It's completely different from 1 and 2, but I still thought it was fun. I'm not sure how bad it has aged seeing as how I played it about six years ago, but for the time, I liked it.
They DID continue the story, in a light-gun PS2 game called Dino Stalker.
Wow, remember this one from the PS1 days. It's like Resident Evil with Dinosaurs. Very cool. Why can't Capcom make games like they did for the PS1? =\
Capcom usually throws a couple of new IPs every generation. During the 32-bit era, they invented Resident Evil and Dino Crisis (while going on with their previous series like Breath of Fire, Street Fighter and MegaMan). In the 128-bit era, they invented Devil May Cry, Onimusha and Monster Hunter (while still developing Resident Evil, Dino Crisis and Breath of Fire). This generation, they came up with Dead Rising and Lost Planet (dropping Onimusha, Dino Crisis and Breath of Fire, but going further with Devil May Cry, Monster Hunter, Street Fighter and of course Resident Evil). You can bet in the next generation they will develop two or three brand new IPs, while carrying on the most succesful from this generation and abandoning the struggling ones. This has always been they're modus operandi.
@plbelanger A lot of their creative mind such as Yoshiki Okamoto, Shinji Mikami, Hideki Kamiya, and Keiji Inafune was resign from the company. And that's really gave a big blow for capcom. Honestly, i don't think capcom can make some great games for next generation...
Awesome, but the first Dino Crisis is even better because it has more focus as a survival/horror/puzzle and is less of an action game. I don't understand why they can't just release these simultaneously across each PSN region. Maybe it is something to do with bugs in certain versions when converting them. I'd love capcom to revive the series, but they'd just turn it into a generic action title like every developer is doing these days.
Lol I still have the PS1 disk for this game
Played it to death. It was much more action-focused then the first, but still great.
First one is one of the best games ever IMO. Is it on PSN?
Yup! It too is in the PSOne classics section for download :)
SoundGamer: Cool, but for Euro store too? I played japanese version many years ago, hehe :)
For now DC 1 is only on JAP and USA PSN
You guys think they could release Dino Crisis 3? It being a xbox exclusive and all?
All depends on who developed it and if they had the manpower to port it to the PS3. I played Dino Crysis 2 back in the day and it was one of my top 10 games of all time. Was resident evil with raptors trying to eat your ass.... was awesome. Does anyone know if these remakes are going to be HD or just ports.
DC 3 was a bad game, it sold poorly and received mixed reviews at the time. It's very unlinkely that Capcom would re-release it, there are more chances (altough very slim) that they would put out an entirely new game. Halow, this are just straight ports (they're in the PSOne classics section of the Store), HD remakes are currently only done for PS2/Xbox games.
I've been waiting too long for this. I bought it at full price back in the day, then let a friend borrow it. He's had it for about 12 years now. Can't wait to give this a go on PSP.
I play mostly PS One classics on my PSP, it's good to be able to re-experience such great games on the go, even if I'd alredy played most of them on the original PlayStation.
Oh well as long as I know DC 3 wasn't good I'm fine it not being ported. Now all I need is MDK! Just saw something about MDK 2 being re-released on wii-ware. God knows why. It was a ps2 game as well as dreamcast and PC.
Awesome!!! Now those who haven't played this can try it out. I just got impatient and bought the CD.
hopefully it will be in a reasonable price
It will be available for $5.99
thats good great price
I have Dino Crisis 2 for PC and I'm not too bothered about it. Completed it in around 4 hours and wasn't very impressed. The first Dimo Crisis which I played on PS1 was a lot better, just like Resident Evil, but with dinosaurs instead of zombies.
FUCK YES!!! I played the piss out of this game on the PS1. I remember being disappointed because DC3 had nothing to do with the original story (the dinos weren't even real dinos!), but the story was actually continued in a PS2 light-gun game called Dino Stalker. Even then though, if you think about it, Regina successfully came back and saved Dylan/Paula. If she didn't, how would future Dylan have existed?
Nice! my favorite dino crisis! Is the original Dino Crisis avaiable yet?
Original has been up on the store for ages now.
European store doesnt seem to have it what a shame...
Oh really? That sucks. I heard SCEE totally shafted the Euro store in terms of PS1 content.
YEsss that´s good new´s and capcom start think about doing a new one its more then TIME damn it!!!!!!!
Expect it to hit the EU/UK Store 5 years from now along with Silent Hill, RE2 & 3, Tekken 1 and Tomb Raider 2. EDIT: Now that I think of it, is DS1 even on the UK/EU Store? IIRC it's not...
So Europe gets screwed again I take it. We dont even have RE2 yet. How bloody long do we have to wait? Its not like these are cutting edge games. And hurry up and release Fear Effect 1&2 Sony.
I absolutely loved DC1 better but, DC2 was still great....Anti Tank Rifle FTW!!!
