The game Carnivores Ice Age was released in 2001, four years after the successful release of the original Carnivores and the release of the Carnivores 2 games. The game is a hunting game which became a popular genre in the 90s. The game is pretty similar to the original Carnivores but featured a more interesting game play which was probably brought about by the difference in the creatures hunted.
The game is set in the prehistoric ages when dinosaurs still roamed the earth.
You will hunt the dinosaurs as if you were hunting deer. But because the Dinosaurs are big and fierce, hunting them requires more skill. Prehistoric creatures are also more resilient and strong and can take more hits and damage than the creatures in the original Carnivores game.
The graphics of the game are amazing. The game is rendered in 3D animation that is very impressive. This is what makes the game really stand out. You really feel as if you have stepped into another world when you play the game Carnivores - Ice Age. This is pretty much the same graphics system that was used in the two previous Carnivores games. If you have played the two other Carnivore games then the graphics
may not be as impressive to you. Still you have to admit the animals look pretty realistic and are well-made. There are so many animals including - the deer, bear, wolf, tigers, birds, mammoths and others. The animals have different behaviors which you must remember when hunting. You can also observe them for a while to learn about their behavior. There is an observer mode which you might also enjoy because of the fantastic animation.
The sounds of the game are also good and realistic and definitely add to the whole feel of the game. Because the game play is pretty simple, you are just hunting for animals, you will get the excitement from the fantastic settings, graphics and atmosphere more than anything else.
There are no missions or quests in the game. Like I said earlier, it is a simple hunting game. First you just specify what animal you are hunting for and then you hunt for that creature.
You will have the choice between the following armaments when you hunt in the game: shotgun, rifle, sniper rifle, crossbow, double-barreled shotgun and a pistol. Not all the weapons are easy to use. Some of them can even be quite frustrating. Like any other shooter game, find the weapon that you can best handle.
