"Too bad we haven't evolved into birds yet..."
I hear that.
Human beings generally assume that other brains just aren't ticking the same home-brewed quality of consciousness that we experience individually. This is true of our perception of animals and other human beings. Maybe some species actually possess acute intelligence, but they just don't speak our language. Like velociraptors -- they're hunters you know.
65,000,001 BC is a platform adventure where you play a raptor with certified ninja skills on a quest to save the world from meteoric doom. Unlike Dino Run it takes an exploratory pace with a dose of tongue-in-cheek writing, allowing you to experience raptor-hood not as a primal hunter racing for survival, but as an intelligent problem-solver saving the world with calculated method. The controls give a sense of Metroid: Redesign garnished with a taste of The Lost Vikings, not quite perfect but smooth enough once you sail through the first areas. The flow is supreme, like a slit eye focusing keenly.
The plot involves tracking down components for a device that can stop the catastrophic meteor from crashing, much like the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced film involving primates doing the same thing. Since this is a lengthy jaunt, the quality and freshness of the writing are a key element that will draw you in and keep you going. If you're the kind of person that strongly resonates with anthropomorphic dinosaurs, you've come to the right place.
