So I just watched the new video game trailer, and saw the Gorn. And they are some odd creature now? They don't seem humanoid, they seem like dinosaurs. I realize the TOS version was cheesy, but they were redone for ENT.

So now they are dinosaurs instead of a humanoid reptilian race? They even have tails! These aren't gorn! What is the video game team thinking?

I don't do the online gaming bit,
but I saw the Gorn Resin Statue
this site started hawking. And I
have to agree, this redesign lacks
imagination and creativity, completely.
It's not a compelling image, I'm sorry.
Clearly, their heart just wasn't in it.

According to the blogs released on this site, there's more than one species of Gorn, some more evolved than others.

They were trying to redesign the Gorn for the new video game. They are somewhat humanoid, but not as much as they have been. Sort of a Hybrid between a Humanoid and Reptile, but less human than they have been, which is actually an interesting (interesting, I didn't necessarily mean good) change of pace for Star Trek, being that most races are so humanoid.
Check out this video that Bandia/Paramount made about it:
