"It's good, stupid fun no matter which side you play on, although a questionable option to switch sides midmatch occasionally leaves too many players stacked on the dino side." - IGN.com

Primal Carnage is an online multiplayer shooter that will engross its players in skilled PVP combat, team-based strategy and savage class-oriented matches unlike any you've previously experienced; be it an armed human mercenary or a cunning dinosaur, Primal Carnage is sure to unleash the inner beast in anyone who seeks to survive amongst the fittest.
It’s Man versus Dinosaur in the ultimate fight for dominance, who will emerge victorious and who will become extinct? Let the primal carnage commence!
The Human Team:
As the Mercenaries, you must utilize advanced first-person military tactics and weaponry, teaming up with your squadmates to crush the vicious onslaught of any dinosaurs you encounter before they reach you first. Only through calculated team-based strategies will you and your comrades be fully prepared for any prehistoric threat that may hinder your operations.
The Scientist: An expert markswoman who’s no stranger to big game, with a keen eye and a steady aim she can destroy targets at range with ease but she’s always in need of backup when the danger gets a little too close for comfort.
The Commando: A military veteran the commando is adept at unleashing a hailstorm of lead upon his foes, with bullets to spare and a built in grenade launcher he’s going to be a tough target for even the largest of dinosaurs.
The Pathfinder: A survival expert with a gambling fixation, he travels prepared and serves as a guide for the other humans through the savage wilderness. With a trusty shotgun and repurposed distress flares he’s adaptable to any situation.
The Trapper: A game hunter with a glint in his eye, he packs twin pistols and his pride and joy a gas powered netgun for trapping and immobilizing dinosaurs. He’s still on the lookout for the perfect pair of boots.
The Pyromaniac: A Scotsman with a custom “Flamesaw”, a combination Flamethrower and Chainsaw. He’s mad, he’s Scottish and he has a passion for ripping apart flesh and burning things, what’s not to like?... Oh, he also carries explosives.
As the Dinosaurs, you will employ a keen awareness of the environment and utilize your natural abilities within a third-person perspective to continue your existance as the most dominant predators ever to walk Earth.
The Raptor: The pack hunter, the fast hitter, Raptors are swift, nimble hunters capable of traversing terrain with ease, ripping apart victims in seconds and disappearing without a trace… and that’s when they’re alone.
The Dilophosaurus: The ambusher, it’s a hideous, venomous, vile creature straight from your nightmares, capable of disabling victims from range before going in for the kill or setting them up as a ready meal for some other ravenous dinosaur.
The Pteranodon: Take to the skies and see the battle from a bird’s eye view as you help coordinate your team by highlighting enemy positions and movements, then when your victims are at their most vulnerable swoop in and attack, flying off with your human prize.
The Carnotaurus: Big, mean, short tempered and unstoppable. The Carnotaurus is a freight train of muscle and power, it charges at full force using devastating horns to maim any who get in his path. There’s no outrunning a Carnotaurus.
The T.rex: The all-time king of the dinosaurs himself, 10 tons of earth shaking hell on earth, with a bite force strong enough to crunch bones with ease and feet large enough to crush a man, you better find somewhere out of his reach because if he catches you, it’s game over.
Five distinct levels with large, open environments, including lush jungles, open fields, and the sky; hunt and be hunted!
10 playable classes (five human, five dinosaur) each with unique skills and abilities that can trump each other in a rock-paper-scissors fashion
Play from both first-person (humans) and third-person (dinosaurs) perspective
Multiple achievements, unlockables and planned DLC

I recently got this game on sale on steam for $5 and do not regret my decision at all. The game is fun in itself, but it just gets stupid fun when you get a group of friends to play with. I was able to sit down and play for a solid 6 hours with just 2 other friends because it honestly improves it THAT much more. Even though the map selection is rather limited, I constantly find myself getting lost as a human when running around in the jungle. That being said, the most I would pay for this title would be $10 (Steam full price), though I would wait and see if you can't get it for any less than that.
Fun dinosaur multiplayer gameDManVI | June 6, 2013 | See all DManVI's reviews »
You either play as humans or dinosaurs. There are about 5 classes for each team. The game doesnt take itself very serious, seeing how you basicly respawn instantly and run back to kill some more. Theres no tutorial so you dont really know what you're suppose to do the first time you play a mode or character class. Either way, i had a fun time playing as either team. As a multiplayer game its alot of fun to use different tactics depending on what team and class you are playing. This give some variety wich is alot of fun.

Incredibly fun indie gamemetfighter | June 1, 2013 | See all metfighter's reviews »
I bought this game last week and seriously cannot stop playing. It is equally as fun playing humans or dinosaurs. The only negative thing about this game is that there are only 2 gametypes, but both are amazingly fun. The classes for dinosaurs and humans offer enough variety to how you play the game and give you enough to stay interested for a long time.
Dinosaurs vs humansStebsis | May 27, 2013 | See all Stebsis's reviews »
Dinos vs humans, what more could you want!? Well, little less bugs and a bit better gameplay would be nice... But yeah, this definitely is a fun game even with the bugs and some gameplay issues, like no tutorials which makes controlling dinos a pain in the ass in the beginning. When you get the hang of it, playing with dinos is just awesome. Humans on the other hand could've been made a bit more interesting with better arsenal of weapons, you don't get anything really imaginative. It still has its moments like a giant T-Rex stomping from the jungle coming at you is just terrifying. This is a fun multiplayer game and pretty cheap too, if you're into games like Natural Selection 2 this is a game for you.
