You start the game and fight. This game is pure fighting, nothing else. You fight with other dinosaurs and unlock new dinosaurs, new skins, new arenas and new game options for you to use. The graphics are good, opponents leave bite, horn and claw marks on each other, so the fighting looks realistic. But you won’t confuse Warpath dinosaurs with the movie ones.
Dinosaurs were altered to make fighters out of them (Triceratops jumps 20 feet into the air, a 2 meter Pachycephalosaurid is the size of a Tyrannosaur). You can eat humans or other small animals that run around the arena to power up your dino while fighting. The sound is excellent. Music changes with the physical condition of the dinosaurs. The sounds are well done. T-Rex, Raptor and Pachy’s sounds are the same as in the movie.
I read on some sites that each dinosaur’s control is too different. Well, all dinosaurs in the game have the same basic moves, they might do those moves differently but the effect is the same. Of course, each dinosaur has its own special moves, but you have to know them. The arenas in the game are made off the movie or real places (Universal’s Islands of Adventure arena). There is also a museum where you can get info on all dinosaurs featured in the game.
If you like dinosaur fighting you will like this game. I find this game fun if you have a friend to battle with.
