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.
The Saturday morning Jurassic Park cartoon that never wassheldipez | Nov. 19, 2013 | See all sheldipez's reviews »
Jurassic Park is a game which was designed to be episodic but instead all four "episodes" ending up being released together at the same time, when you buy this you get the whole package.
JP was Telltale’s first game in a new direction after a long period of traditional point n click adventures, their main inspiration being the game mechanics of Heavy Rain, meaning that it’s best played with a controller (plug in a wired 360 controller and all the onscreen prompts change to the buttons of the xbox pad). The result is a game that is heavy on quick time events but never feels annoying (I was done with Heavy Rain before Heavy Rain was done with me – Jurassic Park is short and doesn’t outstay its welcome).
The story is centred around a team that is sent in to retrieve the can of dino DNA that Dennis Nedry failed to deliver in the first (and best) movie and the other, unseen, park staff that were trapped on the island (always was strange how a massive multibillion dollar park was ran on a skeleton staff!).
A lot of negative reviews where thrown about by critics but I’ve always thought they were too harsh, it’s essentially a Saturday morning Jurassic Park cartoon (all the characters are in the TellTale animated style) with a ton of nudges towards the movie we all love. You can see what they learned from this experience and we have The Walking Dead because of this. Recommended.

This is a good game, it's great for fans of the JP series and a wonderful title to get stuck in and play. However, the game does have a few things holding it back. First of all the presentation fo the game, menu's, cut scenes and overall animation seem lacking, not so much stuck in the past but more along the lines of not very well refined. Secondly one of the biggest pitfalls about this game would have to be the QTE's (Quick Time Events) and how they are set out in the game. It's felt like less of a fun thing to do and more of a chore. A good example of how QTE events should be handled would have been Shenmue I and II. The visuals and graphics are very nice and I can't really fault them, obviously not ground breaking graphics but the theme fits and the atmosphere is spot on. The sounds are also quite nice, and if everything else was on par we'd be up for a great game. Overall, it's fun to play, it does have a lot to answer for but please try a demo or play at a friends house before buying, I wouldn't buy this again.
Too Many Quick Time Eventsthegaminglyfe | June 21, 2013 | See all thegaminglyfe's reviews »
The story of this game isn't that good to anyone who isn't a major fan of the movies. But if you loved the movies you'll enjoy it. The graphics are terrible and the game looks like the Back to the Future one. The art style doesn't fit in at all with a serious dinosaur game! The game sounds pretty good but the lip sync is horrible. The action isn't very enjoyable because it consists of too many quick time events. If you like the movies, you should consider getting this on sale. Otherwise just avoid it.
