Summary

Let’s cut to the chase, Gigantosaurus is a game aimed at kids first and foremost, it caters well for them by adding in four-player support, big colorful world, forgiving mechanics and a variety of genres. Kids will have an absolute blast with it and there is enough game to keep them busy for hours. Now we move on to older gamers, we’ll it’s a case of you play it of you want easy trophies or you play it as it’s not a bad game and is very chilled out and a good game to just zone out to and run around and collect stuff. I saw it all the way through to the end as it was just fun to play and charming.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
