In the wind.. Fossil Fighters, Ice Age 3 and Go Diego Go! Great Dinosaur Rescue


Oh what a surprise! A DS based Pokemon rip-off where collecting fossils, cleaning them, reviving them and then battling with them is the order of the day.

This does make a refreshing change (See also Dino Master and Fossil League: Dino Tournament Championship).

I'm going to resist the temptation to review it from prerelease videos and screenshots although we all know it's going to be so-so. And the dinosaurs are all made up :(

Ice Age 3 plods onto every console going as did the first two games of the films. Expect generic platforming. It's hard to get excited about these when the previous ones were playable but mediocre. It's even harder just contemplating the wedging the dinosaurs into the Ice Age format. Still final judgement to be reserved after I play through all fourteen versions.

Go Diego Go! Great Dinosaur Rescue. Firstly why are the not so great dinosaurs not worth rescuing? And also...just no. Just no. I'll be honest, the to do list just got a new last place with this game.

Tot ziens!

Fossil Fighters is pretty good - 8/10, I'd say.

The dinosaurs aren't made-up.

They're real, they've just been mutated from the cloning process so they give them slightly different names. There's more than just dinosaurs as well, various other prehistoric animals are in there too - like Andrewsarchus, Plesiosaurus, Smilodon, etc.
