Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D 

 

Ubisoft has a huge Nintendo 3DS launch line up. Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D is the final game they sent us to review for the launch. The dinosaurs fight in an interesting style. Do not expect this to be Primal Rage. There is no blood, or gore in Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D. This is a lighter fighting game designed for those over the age of ten. There is also some light exploration in this hand held video game.

The visuals in Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D are wonderful. There are some amazing details like leaves falling, and lights coming towards the screen. The dinosaurs animated exceptionally well, and there is a nice amount of diversity to their skins. With that said there is violence in Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D. Players fight other dinosaurs - which is a major part of this Nintendo 3DS game.

I enjoyed the thematic music in Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D. It gives this game a larger than life feel. Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D includes fun facts that fall under theory many times. This is an area that can be used to teach your children to think for themselves. One of the topics we discussed in our family is Old Earth versus Young Earth. Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D teaches Old Earth. I am convinced the developers did not even think about it, or research the heated debate.

Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D includes numerous unlockables. There are different designs, dinosaurs, and items. The items will enhance your dinosaur with various stats. One increases attack, and health, another increases push and defense. There are multiple combination's. Players have three slots available to them. A little thought in the strategy department can make parts of Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D easier.

Players explore a level by walking around. There is one path that goes one direction. Running over piles of rocks, sticks, and more produce hidden items. If you miss something it is easy to turn around. At four points in a level there are dinosaurs that must be fought. The normal game play mechanic is dodge their attacks by moving left or right, and then attacking them. Rinse and repeat until complete. I am very sorry because this bored me pretty quickly. Sure I could pick different dinosaurs, and complete different areas. The fighting system is very simplistic, and monotone.

Kids love dinosaurs, and I expect there to be great interest in this hand held title. Let me remind parents that the ESRB rating should be obeyed for this game without question. Kids need to be at least seven years old to use the Nintendo 3DS. The violence in Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D can make certain children rowdy. The lesson that sticks out to me from Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D is the Old Earth belief. I am happy that there is no blood or gore in this game.
