TellTale's Learning ProjectFarenhiet | Aug. 17, 2015 | See all Farenhiet's reviews »
Before the emotional workouts and narrative spectacles that TellTale brought to their current games, and after the classic adventure-game puzzle solving and slow-burn dialogue of their old games, Jurassic Park was made. With TellTale trying to transition away from more conventional adventure game tropes and mechanics and bring on the more engaging narrative and emotional elements, what's contained within is watered down elements of both. There's no interactivity to the narrative, so there's no real engagement in the narrative beyond unimportant dialogue options. There's more old-school puzzles to solve, though they serve no function in the story so they feel like filler in between cutscenes and what are some of the worst QTE's from TellTale. Un-honed and overused, the QTE's fill the bulk of the action sequences and don't do much to make the player feel in the moment. The story itself is written decently, with an interesting bunch of characters and a respectable amount of dino encounters. The player switches between playing the different characters, though this idea was flimsily implemented with many characters sharing different motivations. The end result is a loose player identity to the characters, and a player that likely cares less them. Jurassic Park might interest hardcore TellTale fans wanting to experience the companies growth, but it just hardly makes a mediocre game.
not so goodandreacdc98 | Feb. 24, 2015 | See all andreacdc98's reviews »
Jurassic Park The Game is a game that is supposed to be just like the movie, but I think it is not similar. The game has good graphics, nothing special, the art style is similar to the movie. The soundtrack is basically the same the movie uses, but it does not make the game more intense. The gameplay is not so good, it is really hard to control your character, it is not a pleasurable experience. Overall, the game is like the movie in the visual and sound, but not the story, since a lot has changed from it. Anyway I recommend this just to the fans of the original movie, since they will have fun playing it, but not those who have not seen it.
Not best from TellTale.Furrek | Feb. 23, 2015 | See all Furrek's reviews »
If you have played already The Walking Dead or other more popular TellTale's games then be prepared for disappointment. Why? Well, you can see that it didn't taken the best from Jurassic Park universe. There could be more and done better. It's probably one of worse TellTale's games. Maybe it's universe fault, since I'm not really fan of dinosaurs? Or because of too many QTEs? If you are only fan of TellTale games then you will probably have not as much fun but if you love Jurassic Park - that's another story, mostly because of familiar faces from movie.

Investigate incident in a Jurassic Park and don't let yourself eaten. Ok let's quickly sum up: You like TWD? Yes? Ok... You like dinosaurs? Yes? That is good... You like Jurassic Park movies? Aslo yes? Well that's great. You will surely like Jurassic Park The Game. Don't worry about QTEs if your not too dexterous. You can repeat them as many times as you need. So it's still a good adventure game for those who prefer point and click titles. Just try it if you answered yes to all questions.
Worth your timeGestafar | Feb. 1, 2014 | See all Gestafar's reviews »
For Telltale's first game this is quite good compared to some of their newer games. Overall the game it has a well written story line for a sequel to the original movie, it does not have any characters from the movie though. This game easily will have 5+ hours or more depending on your choices. Unfortunately Jurassic park is not quite what it seems. For starters this game is primarily a QTE type of game where most of the time you can spam the any button without consequence. As well as Dialog choice where very few will impact the game in the end if at all. Sound and graphic issues are rare but when they do appear they can be game breaking, Most notable for other users is that QTE are sometimes invisible and it is unknown what buttons to press. Once again Jurassic park is a good game it just does not meet up to today's gaming standards, the game feels more like watching someone else play rather than yourself. If you like lore and story telling though, then this is the game for you.
