I don't know about this one. The thing I remember from the original is people getting extremely excited about dinosaurs for a while at school (the actual research about dinosaurs, that is). Having some mutated biological experiment as the heart of the conflict, seems to be less... science. But I could be wrong, maybe the young audience will rally behind the "real" dinos in this one, and disregard the human fiddling with nature, I'd like that.
I agree. I played it all day yesterday and instead of getting used to the controls it got more and more frustrating. That wind-up on the sprint is a damn nightmare when you want to loot and harvest a bunch of stuff in a tight area.
Well, I haven't been playing a lot of 2014 games. The only thing I could think of that would match a tiny bit is Dark Souls 2. I really thought I would spend more time with it but I burned out early on in my second playthrough. I still like the game though, but, maybe I was a slightly disappointed.
But I guess that's what most reviewers and players are saying, also.
