Telltale’s Jurassic Park Gets Lost In The Jungle

Game Informer
16 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Concept: Revisit another classic movie franchise. Unlike with Back to the Future, Telltale fails to hit the right nostalgic notes Graphics: Telltale’s graphics are as smooth as a stegosaurus’ ridged back; the game looks more dated than the film it’s based on Sound: The voice acting is solid, but many of the story moments feel hollow due to the lack of an ambient soundtrack.

Jurassic Park

20 February 2011
  • Excerpt: When Telltale Games announced that they would be bringing adventure game adaptations of Back to the Future and Jurassic Park, fans of both the films and adventure games were left scratching their heads.

Jurassic Park

30 November 2011
  • Conclusion: 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 sich das Ganze mehr und mehr zu einer vorhersehbaren und banalen Hatz durch den Dino Park. Der Spielablauf ist hochgradig linear, was insbesondere durch das wenig abwechslungsreiche Gameplay noch verstärkt wird.

Jurassic Park

9 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Schon Back to the Future hat es mir als Tester nicht leicht gemacht, Jurassic Park treibt das Problem allerdings auf die Spitze. Die Atmosphäre der Filme wird gut eingefangen, der Soundtrack mit John Williams-Zitaten tut sein Übriges - als Film würde mir die knapp sechs Stunden lange Handlung gefallen. Doch das Problem ist, dass der Titel eben ein Spiel sein soll und es genau die Gameplay-Elemente sind, die einfach nicht überzeugen können.
  • Pros: gute Handlung
  • Cons: spielerisch schwach, angestaubte Grafik, Bugs
