** The ''Dilophosaurus'' is a ''Film/JurassicPark''-esque venom spitter, though thankfully it has no [[JurassicPark neck frill]]. WordOfGod says it's because they were genetically engineered to be venomous. Unlike most ''Dilophosaurus'' in media, this one is nearly to scale to the real animal, and not the one from ''[[Film/JurassicPark Jurassic Park]]''.

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: The human faction. So far: a sexy [[TheSmartGuy scientist]] with a [[FriendlySniper sniper rifle]], a {{badass}} former US Army trooper, a MagicalNativeAmerican tracker who believes ShotgunsAreJustBetter, an Australian [[RecruitingTheCriminal poacher]] and an AxCrazy ViolentGlaswegian with a flamethrower-chainsaw. [[InvokedTrope This trope is even called out in the description on the website]].

*** Ultimately, while the ''Pteranodon'' isn't very accurate, the ''Tupandactylus'' is, anatomically, almost perfectly spot-on (aside from being bald like the ''Pteranodon''). The body and wing proportions are perfectly accurate. It also trades in picking up enemies for the more realistic ability to knock players off heights. The only noteworthy issues are the incorrectly folding wings which has been improved slightly by time of the sequel. However, its proficiency as a flier isn't quite so accurate - tapejarid pterosaurs were about as good at flying as chickens.

* TakeThat: Remember in ''Film/JurassicParkIII'' how a ''Spinosaurus'' fought and killed a ''Tyrannosaurus rex''? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv0wjS3nvso Not so lucky this time round]]...
** The method of fighting is also more TakeThat: The ''Spinosaurus'' tried biting off the ''Tyrannosaurus rex'''s neck, like it did in the movie... The ''T. rex'' pretty much [[NoSell shrugs it off]]. Then the ''T. rex'' proceeds to use the same method the ''Spinosaurus'' used in the movie, bite in the neck... to kill the ''Spinosaurus''.
* XMeetsY: {{Turok}} meets VideoGame/TeamFortress2 (the human classes) meets ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' (the dinosaur classes).

*** ''Oviraptor'' is an alternate "predator" dinosaur with the same abilities as the ''Novaraptor''. It's perfectly anatomically correct, but the real ''Oviraptor'' probably wasn't quite so fast of a runner, and certainly not as deadly.

*** ''Cryolophosaurus'' has the same [[HandWave Hand Waved]] venom spit, but is also fairly slimmer than the real animal, with a narrower head.

*** Ultimately, while the ''Pteranodon'' isn't very accurate, the ''Tupandactylus'' is almost perfectly spot on, given that the body and wing proportions of the movel suit tapejarid pterosaurs very well. It also trades in picking up enemies for the ability to knock players off heights. The only noteworthy issues are the incorrectly folding wings which has been improved slightly by time of the sequel.
** RaptorAttack: The developers have invented a fictional species called ''Novaraptor'' ([[MeaningfulName "New thief"]]), created in-universe through genetic engineering. They were still featherless and had anatomically impossible hands, but the developers fixed the hands after the community spoke out, and PreOrderBonus costume is [[http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/334312_518004178211051_426048471_o.jpg accurately feathered]]. ''Tyrannosaurus'', ''Spinosaurus'', and ''Dilophosaurus'' got their hands fixed as well, and this is passed on to the other theropods. Additionally, later skins on both the ''Novaraptor'' and ''Oviraptor'' very frequently have full feathers.

** This isn't meant to be scientifically accurate, of course, but the game [[ShownTheirWork partially subverts the trope...]]
