Dino Crisis 3 is a survival horror game for the Xbox. Like the previous iterations of the Dino Crisis series, gameplay revolves around fighting dinosaurs; unlike previous iterations, the action now takes place in outer space, on a man-made station whose layout is continually changing.

Unlike the first two installments of the Dino Crisis series, the enemies in Dino Crisis 3 are not real dinosaurs. Instead they are mutations based on the physical appearances of some dinosaur species.

Plot[edit | edit source]

It is the year 2548 and it has been 300 years since Earth lost its contact with the colony spaceship, Ozymandias. Somehow, it appeared near Jupiter. A team called S.O.A.R. (Special Operations and Reconnaissance) in the investigative shuttle lifts off to the Ozymandias to investigate. Suddenly, the Ozymandias launched lasers at the investigative ship, shooting off the ship's front cockpit. Then, the S.O.A.R. team got sucked out of the shuttle and most of the people were either lost in space or dead. Fortunately, few of the team members of S.O.A.R., Patrick and Sonya were able to survive and they both board the Ozymandias. What will await them inside? Will they be able to survive, rescue any survivors and find a way to return to Earth?

Reception[edit | edit source]

X-Play reviewed DC3 and gave it a 2 out of 5.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Dino Crisis 3 is the only Dino Crisis in the series that does not have Regina as a character.
  • Dino Crisis 3 is often thought of as non-canonical because of its obvious turn from dinosaur survival horror to sci-fi alien shooting game in space.
  • Dino Crisis 3 was not directed by Shinji Mikami. Shinji Mikami directed and produced the first Dino Crisis, and was the executive producer on the other two.
