Excerpt: I remember meeting TellTale Games at E3 for the first time many years ago. They publish some interesting games. Not everything is good for our audience, but we pay attention to them. They work with some big franchises that gamers have always wanted good games for. Jurassic Park The Game is a classic example. There have been Jurassic Park video games in the past, but few of them have been memorable. At least until now.
Conclusion: Is there anyone out there who, if it wasn't for being jurassic park, would play a game comprised only of quick time events? I am giving it a 3 star rating only because I felt the story was really good and should not be missed if you are like me an jurassic park was and still is one of your favorite movies. It would be more like this. 4 stars as a movie and 2 stars as a game.
Disappointing dino adventure has blood and scares.

Summary: Parents need to know that Jurassic Park: The Game is a teen-rated, violent and bloody adventure game based on the movie of the same name. The characters are animated and not actors. That said, there are scenes that show bloody corpses and dinosaurs eating humans. Some terrifying sequences might upset younger players. The game also has some mild profanity, sexual references, and images of smoking.
Excerpt: xIf you were to ask me earlier this year who the most dependable independent studio in gaming was, I'd be hard-pressed not to answer with Telltale Games. The San Rafael, California based developer, famous for episodic titles like Sam and Max , Puzzle Agent and the revival of the Monkey Island franchise constantly releases quality puzzle and action games, with a distinct old school flair and top notch production values.
Excerpt: Whatever happened to disgruntled Jurassic Park employee Dennis Nedry’s embryo-filled can of shaving cream? Anyone who found it could still stand to make a lot of money… Such is the basic premise of Jurassic Park: The Game , a heavily cinematic adventure that runs parallel with the first film. It stretches across four episodes running around 90 minutes each, alternating between several characters, headlined by veterinarian Gerry Harding and his 14-year-old daughter Jess.
Pros: + Enjoyable story that overlaps with both the film and book., + QTE gameplay can get tense; hilarious deaths when you fail.
Cons: ? Why doesn’t Samuel L. Jackson’s severed arm make an appearance?
Summary: Jurassic Park: The Game captures the look and feel of the films, but confines its interactivity to a series of mindless chores and quick-time events. Between its lack of agency and woeful performance issues, this park is in desperate need of maintenance.
Pros: Solid storyline, Lovely setting, Well choreographed QTEs
Cons: Precious little agency, QTE's make up most of the gameplay, Simple puzzles, Performance issues

Conclusion: The Short Version: Jurassic Park is one big nod to the fans, and judged on nostalgia and respect for the franchise alone, it's a worthy addition to any Jurassic Park afficionado's collection. The story and sheer thrill of being back on the island will be enough for some, but most gamers should give it a wide berth.
Pros: Great atmosphere, story and characters, Nostalgia factor, It's Jurassic Park
Cons: Unbelievable and degrading reliance on QTEs, Inconsistent graphical quality, Less game, more interrupted cutscene
