~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Release Date: December 17 2008 (Universal)
Platforms: XBLA
Developers: NinjaBee
Genre: Racing // Dinosaur on a Rampage
Publishers: Microsoft Game Studios
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This game has pretty much one purpose, that being to gain a quick 200 GS and a completed game to your count. Other than that, there's little else that will entice you to this pizza eating dinosaur game for 30 minutes of your life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Storyline: 2/10
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well, although it's clear the storyline had a great deal of effort put into it, it's not really that amazing to be honest. You play as a dinosaur on a rampage through various towns eating dorito's (thanks SpocKirk for correcting me), no joke. What were the developers smoking right?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Length and replay value: 1/10
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This game whacks you in the face with little of both, however, it's free so you can't really complain too much I guess. The storyline will last you about 30 minutes at most, even a moose could finish this game in under an hour. And as for replay value, unless you have ungodly amount of tolerance, you'll stop playing promptly after you get the game finished.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Gameplay: 2/10
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well, the gameplay in this game is extremely basic, you either play as a dinosaur or a dorito's delivery truck and hunt down some dorito's. Or alternatively, you can play multiplayer and race for dorito's against another friend as dinosaurs, that really is about it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Graphics and Audio: 4/10
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sadly, I think this category is probably the best for this game. For some strange reason I actually quite enjoyed the simplicity of the graphics in this game, and the destruction has reasonable effects to it. The audio also wasn't absolutely terrible, however, it definately wasn't the next 1812 overture.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Achievements: 1/10
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As for achievements, the only game that is easier for achievements in existance is Avatar: TBE. The advantage for those of you hunting gamerscore, is that you won't be challenged in doing so.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Overall Score: 10/50
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4.0

VursusI can see what you mean, I have done the stars on my reviews kinda different to perhaps they should of been done. The stars are for how much I enjoyed the game, not necessarily how great the game was. It was short, has easy achievements and practically no story which score low because they aren't usually seen as great aspects. However, I really loved the game. Thanks for the vote as well, much appreciated :D
