Dr. Edward Kirk is supposed to be dead. Three years ago while working to establish a new type of energy technology code-named Third Energy, an experiment went awry and terminated the brilliant scientist's life — or so it was thought. It was recently learned, however, that Dr. Kirk is very much alive and continuing his work at a Borginia Republic research facility on Ibis Island.
In order to investigate the situation, an elite special forces team including agents Regina, Gail and Rick was sent. The three expected another routine mission, but what they got was an all-out fight for their lives against an enemy they surely had never been trained to face — dinosaurs!
From the creators of Resident Evil comes Dino Crisis, a similar addition to the survival horror genre which the team led by Shinji Mikami brought to the mainstream in 1996. But Regina, the red-haired beauty whom you control throughout the game, isn't up against the slow-moving zombies that attacked Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. Rather, she's battling the likes of ruthless Compies, high-jumping and agile Raptors, swooping Pteradons, and a Tyrannosaurus Rex intent on swallowing her whole. Surely, her 9mm handgun wasn't designed for this operation.
Luckily, Regina isn't restricted to such limited firepower, as she'll come across shotguns, dart guns, and other weapons throughout the island. So to gain access to the keys, code disks, and ID cards necessary for continued exploration, Regina must solve a variety of puzzles along the way that will require a strong mind as necessary as her powerful body.
Dino Crisis has three possible endings with a great deal of secrets becoming available after each has been viewed. These include new weapons, new costumes, and a "Wipe Out" mode in which you must defeat a certain number of dinosaurs within a designated time period. This release of Dino Crisis also includes a second disc that contains a demo of Capcom's Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. ~ Christopher Michael Baker, All Game Guide
