If they’d waited two years they could’ve released it alongside the twentieth anniversary of the film. Oh well, at least they got it to coincide with the Blu-Ray release. Yes, it’s Jurassic Park, the best film with cloned dinosaurs in...

Long-time readers will know I eulogized Michael Crichton on our message boards shortly after his death in 2008, expounding on the fact that his novels were first and foremost entertainment. Take an interesting idea, follow it to a logical...

Telltale Games has an established modus operandi for making games. The developer obtains licenses to beloved old franchises, then expands the universe with its own fiction, along with a dose of puzzle solving and exploration. It worked well enough...

Being a fan of adventure games, and having thoroughly enjoyed previous titles by Telltale Games, I found myself quite exited at the chance to run through their latest outing, Jurassic Park: The Game. Not only would I have all the puzzle-solving...

Since the novel first hit in 1990, I have been absolutely enraptured with the world of Michael Crighton’s Jurassic Park. Since the first release of the book, Jurrassic Park has seen four movies, another novel, ten series of comic books, a theme...

Even with the many issues in the game, Jurassic Park was remarkably enjoyable. If Telltale can convince me, one of their biggest critics, to love this game, then that speaks volumes to the amount of improvement that they have displayed this year. The...

Jurassic Park: The Game isn't a very good game. That said, that's perfectly alright, because its title is something of a misnomer. Jurassic Park: The Game is actually a better movie than any of the cinematic sequels to the original 1993 film,...

Few who made the journey to Jurassic Park via Steven Spielberg's 1993 film have forgotten the island attraction and its prehistoric inhabitants: the spitting dilophosaurus; the swift and intelligent velociraptor; the towering tyrannosaurus. Now,...

Like I said, I wanted Jurassic Park to be good, but just like John Hammond's dream of a dinosaur amusement park, it doesn't pan out. I wouldn't call Jurassic Park a bad game as it works and does take us back to a time when dinosaurs...

Pros: Strong storytelling, characters, and voice acting; true to the film franchise; good mix of exploration, puzzles, and action

Cons: Imprecise keyboard and mouse controls; bugs, the unintentional comedy of frequent and brutal deaths

Though I'm far from a fan of 2010's Heavy Rain, I can at least admit one thing: The game did a damned good job of blanketing its flaws with sheer spectacle. While David Cage's blockbuster had a plot that read like a rejected CSI: Crime Scene...

International Review By computertotaal.nl on 50

Aan het verhaal en de personages in Jurassic Park is veel aandacht besteed, maar helaas kan hetzelfde niet gezegd worden over de gameplay. Het spel verveelt snel en het uitspelen is vooral de moeite waard om er achter te komen hoe het verhaal afloopt,...

International Review By GameCaptain on 60

Jurassic Park fängt zwar die Atmosphäre des Films in gewisser Weise ein, aber das war es dann auch. Während sich der Ansatz noch sehr gut mit der Filmstory verknüpfen lässt und mit interessanten Charakteren aufwartet, entwickelt...

International Review By techstation.it on 60

Jurassic Park: The Game è il primo vero passo falso di Telltale, che fino a oggi era sempre riuscita a sviluppare giochi di buon livello. Nonostante si possa apprezzare la voglia della software house di provare a realizzare qualcosa di diverso...

International Review By Gamer.no on 70

Eg kan sjå føre meg at Jurassic Park: The Game vil gjere mykje for å halde fram diskusjonen om kva eit spel eigentleg er. Såleis vil det møte mykje motstand, for Jurassic Park by på mange dialogscener der du ikkje får...
