'''''Dino Crisis''''' is a SurvivalHorror game series by Creator/{{Capcom}}, the first of which came out in 1999. The game had a lot of similarities to the company's [[Franchise/ResidentEvil other survival horror]] series, and has often been compared to it (curiously, the Umbrella Corporation logo [[FreezeFrameBonus can be found on crates at specific locations in the first game]], with more {{Easter Egg}}s appearing in ''Dino Stalker'' [[note]]in Stage 5, both the "Woman Drawing Water" statue from [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil1 the Spencer Mansion's exhibition room]] and a ruined Umbrella building [[FreezeFrameBonus can be seen during your drive through the city]][[/note]]), even though Capcom originally insisted it was a new genre they called "panic horror." Mainly because, as the name suggests, [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs you fight dinosaurs]]. The series has not seen a new installment since ''Dino Crisis 3'' in 2003, however, the main character of the original two games, Regina, does appear in the 2005 [[VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever crossover game]] ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' and as a costume in the DLC for 2013's ''VideoGame/DeadRising3'', and the "Borginian Republic" the first game takes place in is reused in various parts of the ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' franchise ([[WildMassGuessing make of that what you will]]).

* TheReveal: ''Dino Crisis 2'' has a rather convoluted one, so it is spoilered here and left to the reader to muddle through if he/she/it/pronoun-of-choice so wishes. [[spoiler:After the events of the first game, some scientists got together and decided it would be a good idea to study the dinosaurs. After several groups brought dinosaurs into our time, with predictably disastrous results, the military got a team (which Dylan's older self was a part of) together and decided to send the dinosaurs home. However, the "Timegates" (powered by Third Energy) were defective so the military sent all of the dinosaurs 3 million years into the future until the Timegates could be perfected at which point the dinosaurs were to be brought back to their proper time in a plan called [[MeaningfulName "The Noah's Ark Plan"]]. When they brought the dinosaurs into the future, their Timegate overloaded, stranding the military teams along with the dinosaurs. Before all of the survivors were killed by the dinosaurs, their children were put into life-support pods to protect them as they grew. While they were in the pods, they were taught through some AppliedPhlebotinum how to live with the dinosaurs, with one side-effect being that they would also protect the dinosaurs. Paula was one of those children and since she's Dylan's daughter, she cooperates with him. It's hinted that the Third Energy experiments Edward City was conducting caused a synchronicity between the two groups, causing both overloads, and pulling Edward City into the future.]]

* NoodleIncident: This game indirectly resolves the cliffhanger from ''Dino Crisis 2'' by revealing that Dylan and Paula are still alive, but no mention is made of how Regina managed to save them from their absolute certain death.

* ActionizedSequel - The first game was very much focused on bare-bones survival, giving you very limited ammo to carry around, and relatively weak weapons.[[note]]For example, one item-slot only let you hold 34 handgun bullets. If you were ''lucky'', this was enough to bring down three raptors.[[/note]] This game tosses all this out the window: You build up combos by slaughtering dinos by the dozen, and you can buy ever larger weapons and ammo to do it with.
