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.
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?
Jurassic Park: The Game Review | Quick Time Extinction Event
23 February 2012
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
Conclusion: „Jurassic Park“ ist eine ziemliche Enttäuschung. Eigentlich hatte ich Qualität wie bei den „Zurück in die Zukunft“-Titeln erwartet, aber bekommen habe ich halbgare Lizenzkost, die außerdem nicht besonders gut mit dem Original umgeht und schrecklich geschrieben ist. Irgendwie klappen alle Spielelemente von „Jurassic Park“ nicht so richtig und auch die Spielengine geht häufiger als nötig ist in die Knie, was nur für ein unflüssiges Spielerlebnis sorgt.
