Critic Reviews for Paleo Pines

Paleo Pines doesn't do much to change the farming sim genre, but the inclusion of dinosaurs introduces fun and new ways to play.

Overall I felt disappointed in Paleo Pines. The world is bright, colorful, and fun to be in. The dinosaurs are truly adorable. Playing the flute to learn their song to befriend them is a very unique experience. But the rest of the execution is just mediocre at best. Forgettable quests, roadblocks on things that just aren't fun, cost of supplies is too high, and the fact we can't even go into our house is a real bummer. The quality of life things that we all basically expect in games these days just aren't there. I'd love to see some changes made to the game. I honestly really did try to get into Paleo Pines because the visuals are adorable, but at the end of it all, I was left incredibly bored and lost interest.

The gameplay can get a little repetitive, but overall, the core experience of finding and befriending dinosaurs is well worth your time. There could certainly be some improvements, such as the ability to fast-travel back home or between biomes, and a limited supply of quests is disappointing.

I haven't much negative to say about Paleo Pines. I don't love it, but I do like it a lot. The retail price of $29.99 is more than fair considering what you get – you get a lot of bang for your buck. I was able to overlook the basic visuals to see the magic behind them. While the farming elements feel basic, the dinos make this game stand out from the crowd. Collecting and taking care of them is worthwhile and feels rewarding in the long run.

Paleo Pines takes a unique approach to the ranching genre, asking you to learn a new way of developing your home. Pacing suffers along the way, and much of the side content feels more like filler. It may not have revolutionized the genre and may not be for everyone, but fans of the genre will find something surprisingly engaging, even with its flaws.

Before our review of the different sections, we can comment that we are with a quite different simulation game, in the sense of having dinosaurs, which will be the greatest virtue that we will get. And this, to the surprise of fans of the genre, will be a very interesting twist to keep in mind.

If you enjoy simulation farming games and want to see some adorable dinos, then this game is a solid choice. However, you will need patience, or else you will have short playtime sessions.

Paleo Pines is a life simulator game with a twist: dinosaurs. With a wonderful setting, excellent visuals, and a catchy and charming soundtrack, the game offers a peaceful and pleasant gaming experience to put the world on hold.
