Crytek first earned its reputation for pushing the limits of computer graphics with the original X-Isle/ Dinosaur Island demo, which wowed press at 1999’s E3 convention in LA. Now we come full circle with Back to Dinosaur Island, which blew away attendees of GDC 2015 earlier this year. Back to Dinosaur Island takes advantage of 15 years of CRYENGINE development to show users the sheer endless possibilities that upcoming Virtual Reality devices like the Oculus Rift offer, bringing them face to face with the most terrifying predator that has ever walked the Earth. Back to Dinosaur Island has been built from the ground up to take advantage of the Oculus Rift HMD, and requires an Oculus Rift DK 2 device to run. Please check the System Requirements below- Virtual Reality games require a high frame rate to guarantee a comfortable experience for the user. Running Back to Dinosaur Island on weaker hardware can cause lower frame rates, which can lead to users having a less than ideal experience.

Well there's not much to say.. A small development where you can appreciate the technology CryEngine.. Do not lower it if you do not have VR:D My pc has rendered great to the cinematics.. 0 FPS drop.. Nothing more to say. Bye! PD: A huge nonsense on the part of the developers to put this in the F2P if not even interact with the user..

Pretty Graphic Demo, but there are really very high Graphics requirements, you have to keep in mind that it's just a Graphic Demo. The Main Game will be able to play with the Requirements only a few really few. I'm still excited about the game, but the Main Game will be called Robinson the Journey, I'm Really looking forward to the Game, but the game is really only for Next Gen, the Old Gen graphics Cards unfortunately don't do that anymore.

Nice TECH DEMO for OCULUS DK2. Graphics are great and it shows, how futureof VR might look like. Very small interactions possible, by moving head. It´s all shown in the intro ... I like it - and its for free ... no reason for negative comments. PS: If you do not own a OCULUS yet - than please do not rate this demo negative. Its cleary described ... PS: All controls did work (ESC, etc). PS: Yes - it is a tech demo - not a game. Its cleary described ...

Impressive VR demo which makes despite short Running time (about 5 Minutes), lust on more. You don't need to lose a Word About the Graphics quality of the Cryengine here, because everyone who plays knows the Figureheads of the Cryengine (Crysis). I think 2016 will be the big Year for all VR Enthusiasts (myself included:-))) P.S. THE IS NOT SPIEL, ES IS A GRAFIKDEMO FOR VR-BRILLEN (Oculus Rift), Please also take the Hardware Requirements in mind!

Totally bad. The Video may be good, but everything else is Scrap. VR is touted, but my Rift is not recognized ... ... The Program even reports that it does not support VR. Then a Menu is shown, which suggests that you have an Option. Instead, the same Video always runs. For still too expensive, as it has swallowed up loads of Time to find out that you are being swangled. That could have saved everyone involved ...:-(

Will not be recognized as a VR Title. (Oculus Rift) When launched from The Destop, it remains open as a 2D Program, Oculus does not detect a VR Signal. SteamVR can only be started "in Cinema mode," so only 2D in a virtual Cinema room. The Demo itself always shows only one Starting Image, but then cannot be continued. Too bad actually. Edit: Designed for the Oculus Rift DK2, THE Demo requires a Downgrade of Rift Runtime to older Versions. For Users of the current Rift without the Urge for rumbling, still no recommended Demo.
