This is probably the worst telltale game I have ever played. The entire game is plagued by annoying qtes which take away any enjoyment for the story. Controls are not good for the pc. Best experience would be with a gamepad. Synchronization is also very weak as the game likes to lag or freeze randomly. As for the good stuff, voice acting is superb and the dinos look pretty cool. Because of the problems I cant recommend buying this game. If you're interested in the story just watch it on youtube.

After the Back To The Future game Telltale Games decided to throw in an adventure game that is the direct follow-up to the first Jurassic Park film. And what a hell of a job they did!

What's a Telltale adventure game?

Telltale specialises in adventure games that are easy to complete and usually almost all achievements can be obtained in just one go. There's a great emphasis on immersion hence the many cutscenes and the QTEs incorporated into them.

They can usually be completed in 8-10 hours and there are numerous scenes where a choice can be made - this may result in the sacrifice of a character or it can affect the ending in various ways. Inventory is usually limited to a couple of items - there's no abundance of puzzles and those found throughout the game are easy to complete.

What's their Jurassic Park game like?

As said this is a direct follow-up to the 1993 film Jurassic Park. There are returning locales and references to many things, thus, if you are a fan of the JP films this game is a must for you. The new scenes and characters are also very interesting and we get to learn some new things of InGen along the way.

The game is a tad bit more difficult than the rest of the Telltale games. First of all, QTE have to be timed more precisely and more quickly. It is common that you make mistakes and the game has an evaluation system for this - gold, silver and bronze levels can be attained. Gold levels indicate no slipups - you can only obtain a handful of achievements by not making any mistakes.

The "scenario" menu gives you the ability to return to some of the QTE events to give them another go. This is a must if you want all achievements obtained as no slipups are a must to have 100% completion. In fact, there are some conversation-related or easter egg-like achievements throughout the game. Some episodes must be completed again from beginning to end to really see everything that is intended to be seen in this game.

This time inventory is non-existent and walking is not possible with characters. Instead the icon in the lower-left corner of the screen indicates if there are other locations (rooms) to visit in one scene so we click on these instead of making our protagonists walk. Sometimes clicking on objects is not enough but we have to drag the mouse while doing so - a nice way of interacting with the game's world but a bit too tedious. Telltale games released later on shed themselves of this system and became easier to complete. Oh, and no choices exist to affect events later on in any form.

All-in-all, Telltale's JP game is pretty exciting and it is a must for the fans of the JP franchise as well as for fans of Telltale's adventure games. You just have to get yourself over the not-too-refined QTE system and here and there the game has some audio issues and a somewhat mediocre engine not always offering nice scenes to look at.

Still, with a great discount it is an easy grab especially with the oncoming Christmas sales.

I heard some really bad things about this game, but I enjoyed the original 3 films (well, 3 was okay), so I thought for $4.99, why not see how bad it is?

I was surprised.

To begin with, this is one of TellTale's (The Walking Dead, Wolf Among us, Tales from the Borderlands) earlier efforts, so if you go in expecting a deep story or emotions, you won't find it here, not that it's shallow, but it's pretty basic...but that said, I had an overall good time.

I would say, that I wouldn't buy it at full price, it has some issues. Being Telltale, they of course have quicktime events, and I used the keyboard, and sometimes I KNOW I pushed a button only to have it fail, and others I didn't push it, but it still counted, so it can be frustrating at times, but it didn't happen every time. I will say it seemed less forgiving than later titles.

The game picks up sometime during the first film, but none of the characters show up, not really anyway. There are 4 episodes in total, and some achievements that are missable, if you are into that.

You do get some dialouge, but it's not quite like later titles where it really affects anything, it's more or less just there for flavor. The characters aren't horrible, but nothing to write home about.

The action scenes are overall well done, and the use of quicktime can lead to some tense situations, but as I said, the only issue is sometimes it won't register properly leading to frustration with the system.

You get to control a few characters, and you meet the expected dinos and some not from the films. In the end, it's a decent action/adventure game, but not with a deep storyline.

I'd say get it on sale, then if you don't care for it you're not TOO much upset over $5. If you liked the movies, you'll have an overall good time, and if you like achievements, there are some you can miss but you can load certain parts of an episode to get them again, and you will mess up because of the quicktime event format.

Hello. Like always care maybe some spoilers on your own. I love Jurassic Park since 1992-3 i was one of my first Video Home System Cassetts i get (good old times) and i love dinos since long time. So i love Telltale games even they could somtimes better (longer, more options, choices) but this time it gets hard. Sure my hope was to high. Normaly i dont talk about graphics but making a new look and then a jungle, there could be more details in this game, but its not a big deal not even the clipping mistakes, but i like it has a german version, what i miss in other games. It dont have a fast forward/ rewind/ skip option or TRADING CARDS and not much change, you cant rescue the most, the good great dangerous tattooed bear that looks like the bad guy and the friendly guy are both not what they look but both die so who cares? All other runs not well too, at the end you can rescue 2-3 people, wow. A nice piece of game, not a epic story but fine, yeah for Jurassic Park Fans its fine who know the movies but for some it will disappointed for others it will be maybe good enough. Choose yourself for me personal its hard to decide but i give after all a 86 %. Try the game yourself, with lets play or other ways. Thank you for your reading this/ time and have a happy day.

I recently purchased the Humble Telltale Bundle, after having thoroughly enjoyed The Walkind Dead: Season One as well as both of the Poker Night games. When Jurrasic Park was announced as one of the two bonus games, I was stoked because I loved the movie when I was a kid and at this point have fallen in love with TTG's newer adventure games.

That much being said, I was met with dissapointment. The writing does not feel like it captures the same passion Telltale had with other games (the stories in The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and The Walking Dead all feel very compelling and can draw you in even if you aren't a fan of the source material already). The voice acting is top notch, but the writing itself just isn't there so far.

The quick time events have become incredibly intrusive and distracting, with many of them not making a difference whether or not you fail (an example being when you nearly run into the other main character while driving to the visitor center, which has an identical outcome regardless of if you make the QTE in the very short time it gives you).

On the same subject of the over done QTEs is also the fact that this game has possibly the worst controls of any Telltale adventure. You are all over the keyboard, and many of them have very strict timing involved or you will fail. Also, the steam overlay will occasionally make the button prompts dissapear (which has so far only happened to me on keyboard, and not controller).

The graphics are not mindblowing, but they do what they need (as is typical with these games), however it is much less stylized than the other TTG titles, when it really could have benefitted from more of a traditional TTG art direction. Also, there is no silent pause like the other TTG games have, and the pause screen that is in the game is incredibly loud and obnoxious (t-rex roaring every couple seconds).

Is this game playable? Sure. Would I recommend it? Only to die hard fans of both Jurrasic Park and TTG. I would recommend pretty much any of the other TTG games over it, with Tales from the Borderlands or The Wolf Among Us being my primary recommendations. Jurrasic Park just lacks the polish and soul that simillar titles from the same studio have in extra-large helpings.
