Went through the trouble to join just to tell you guys how freakin' awesome you are.
1. Dino beatdown was fantastic and gave me and some friends several hours of fun during a couple lans.
2. You guys are extra awesome for making it free to everyone that already had dino beatdown.

BEWARE. this is a renamed game, it has been patched. that is all.
it's not new. it was released almost a year ago and got a meta score of 35.

the dev has renamed and re-released his game, increased the price, included microtransactions and it's still garbage. AFTER A YEAR.

research the dev, david prassel, and find out that he's screwed over his employees and stolen models from other games like NS2 and primal carnage.

this is vaporware at it's finest. total scam.

have you ever seen a game rename itself so it could resubmit itself to metacritic??? wtf is that?

on steam - Release Date: May 4, 2012
max players online about 250 (over an entire year..) according to Steamcharts.com
same app id, new title on the game.

you've been warned.

if you don't believe me i implore you to read the steam forums or the thread on reddit. Reddit.com
