Broken Promises: The developers are LIARS!
WTF, man? We've been waiting for about a YEAR for these jerks to follow through on their promise to release a version where single-player offline gameplay is available, and they LIED! Now, I'm not criticizing in any way, shape, or form folks who favor MMORPG-type stuff, but this format, for a small variety of reasons, is not for everyone. Old farts like me, especially ones with actual combat experience, really don't tolerate very well the way some of these wet-behind-the-ears snot-wipes launch intentionally inflammatory diatribes/rants for the stupidest of reasons, especially during online gameplay with their temporary teammates. Gaming is supposed to be FUN, and shooters are a socially acceptable way to release agression (with the VIRTUAL weapons, not the hostile and non-constructive mouthings that would get one's throat cut or neck snapped IRL). I got started in PC shooters with the very first Tomb Raider in 1995, and it was a welcome change from the primitive arcade games I'd grown up with (Pong, Asteroids, Star Defender, and Galaga). Now the possibilites are endless; there's something for everyone, literally (not FIGURATIVELY, but literally). Now, Dino D-Day is a somewhat ridiculous premise, but it's SUPPOSED to be; that's the point, to be fun. I watched a trailer for the game in German (I lived in Germany for eight years during the Vietnam war), and I about laughed my ♥♥♥ off. Now, this looks like a fun game...so, what happened? Not only did they NOT release a single-player version, but there's no bot-play, either, not to mention the multi-player fans are getting pissed off at the lack of continued servers/support. Too bad; I was kinda looking forward to [hypothetical I just pulled outta my ♥♥♥] Dino D-Day: Triumph At Trondheim...compysauri on skis, troodons on snowboards, and velociraptors racing on snow-bikes? THAT would be funny.

The server list occasionally lists some servers as having bots on them.

I'll have to check that out, then! If there's bot-play, it might be worth it…kinda like Alien Arena, maybe?

RE: TL;DR: What, are you fuc*ing illiterate, you goddam*ed troglodyte? It's a mothrfuc*ing POST, not as fuc*ing IM chat! What the goddam*ed HELL are you doing on a forum where they use B-I-G W-O-R-D-S? This is Grown-Up land, idiot, not fuc*ing KINDERGARTEN. Too Long; Didn't Read? You, ♥♥♥♥♥, are the epitomal exemplification of "Waste Of Space." Noting your "handle," I see that you fancy yourself a dino shooter. Ever play Primal Rage (Sega Genesis 1995) or have you heard of Carnal Rage, the latest and best in all the online Dino Shooters? I thought not! STFU, you stupid twit!

I just HAVE to post again regarding the subliterate who was too damned LAZY to frikiking READ a paragraph of moderate length: How old ARE you? Have you graduated from HIGH SCHOOL yet? Perhaps I'm being too harsh…silly me, I thought any serious gamers "out there" would at least READ the manuals that come with the games they play, presupposing a familiarity with whatever language the guides were written in…but, alas, I guess I was WRONG. YOU DO NOT BELONG HERE. THIS IS FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN READ AND WRITE, WHO ARE CAPABLE OF COMPREHENDING ALL THE WORDS WHICH APPEAR ON THEIR HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMAS.

All I can say is that I like playing Dino D-Day with people who have "real combat experience" and can tell me what it is like to know real fear.

You might want to get some air.

Serious gamers don't need manuals.

Serious? You mean subliterate idiots who, having NOTHING in their lives meaningful like a love of History, Literature, Theater, Mathematics, Linguistics, Philosophy, High-Level Machine Language Encoding, Web, and Application development, mollify themselves with the pathetically sad delusion that in this one INFINITESIMAL area of life they have a SLIGHT area of knowledge better than the average Joe makes them so superior that they literally KNOW IT ALL? God forbid talentless hacks and non-digital-God-worshiping "atheists" like me would want to read a GAME BIBLE! Serious? Oh, you mean the MORONS who don't read the product manuals for complex tech gadgets they buy…EVER, not even when they encounter a problem? You know, you are RIGHT: I'm not a serious gamer. I'm an inbred cretin. I MUST be, since I really have NO idea what you mean by "serious gamer." I guess all my experience with firearms in real life, the military, et cetera, doesn't entitle me to simply HAVE FUN in a patently NOT serious NOT FREAKING REAL environment. I am so stupid that, not being part of the development teams of the games that I play, I have to actually READ sometimes. I apologise from the bottom of my not serious heart for offending your childish, purist, elitist snob sensibilities.

What the Samuel HELL is wrong with people today that they don't read anything longer than a Twitter, especially if it's not formatted in illiterate chat-text? TOO LONG / DIDN'T READ? Admit it: You don't understand all the fancy words on your high school diploma, do you?

Wow. You are AMAZING. You intellect stuns me. I've noted all the comments you've made, and I guess you've found me out: I am a fraud, a liar, a pretender, a wannabe. Darn! And I worked so HARD to get a whole world of people who couldn't care less if I live or die that I'm some kind of video game god that should be elected President. Darn it all, there go my dreams of world conquest! There is something obviously REALLY not right with my mental processes; thank you SO MUCH for inspiring me to seek psychological therapy. I am on my knees THANKING you for opening my eyes and showing me how worthless a person I am. Which church should I go to for confession of the sins I must be guilty of, most egregious of which is violation of the first commandment, "Thou shalt be a serious gamer?" Wait a minute: I thought the first one was, "Thou shalt have no other platforms before me?" While we're at it, which one is, "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors' consoles?" Oh, and lest we forget: "Thou shalt not spill thy words with thine keyboard!"
