This is weird case where I sort of liked it but can't really recommend it. It's incredibly linear, the gameplay is mostly limited to Quick-Time Events, and the story isn't especially great. That said, I thought the characterisation was quite strong for the most part, and while it's not exactly graphically impressive the visual design compensates for it well enough. I got it on sale for $7.50, and I don't really regret buying it or playing it, but chances are you'll find it a disappointment compared to other games by this developer.

First of all I must say I didn't want to buy this game. It came with the "Telltale Package" I bought and I gave it a try. I was expecting a "Walking Dead" with dinosaurs but that's not exactly true. The gameplay is pretty similar on the few-puzzles end but with less decision making and more quick time events plus not everything you do has a timer.
QTEs are a big part of the game so I you don't like them you are going to have a bad time. More so because they are harder than any game I played so far (generally speaking) but I guess they were made this way to add a layer of difficulty and replayability considering every episode has a score system. Perfectionists are going to want to have a gold score on every episode and I don't think it's that bad to die every now and then. But I really wonder if there are people who ace all QTEs on the first try. Camera and character controls are another matter. They are lazy to say the best and exploration is non-existent. There are at best 4 angles in an area and once there you use the keyboard to use the camera. The KEYBOARD!!!
Story is connected to the first movie which is kinda cool and has many well thought references which is cooler and progression is similar to every mainstream story out there. It also has its share of plot twists. The ones near the end are totally stupid and bad guys are even more stupid but I didn't expect much anyway so yeah...
Graphics are exactly like in the screenshots and OK in my opinion. They don't matter much anyway...
Soundtracks are pretty good. Some of them I recognize from the movies, some from every horror movie ever and some I don't know. The movies' original score is used frequently and that's a right choice if I ever saw one.

For me this was kind of a free game and I don't regret playing it. But I wouldn't pay more than a couple of bucks.

+ Soundtracks
+ Balanced difficulty
+ Story references
- Emberassing camera
- Lazy controls
- Lame-♥♥♥ plot twists
- "Bad guys"

As a huge dinosaur and Jurassic Park fan (not to mention a fan of Telltales Gamestyle) I was very excited about this game. The game doesn't disappoint in my opinion however the quicktime events seemed harsh and unforgiving (possibly just due to my laptop so don't hold that against the game). All in all I liked this game and don't think it deserved some of the comments I heard people making.

Even though this is not one of Telltale's finest, it's still a good little game. But don't pay full price for it, unless you really want to support Telltale Games; the game is way too short for that.

+ Dinos! It's no spoiler when I say that the films' loveliest dinosaurs made it into the game. The T-Rex's roar is done to death, but we Jurassic Park fans need it.
+ New characters in a new story, but if you know the films some things should be familiar to you, in a good way: they're not necessarily random references to make you go "hah! I get this reference!" (well alright, some are - but they're subtle).
+ Nima gets more interesting as the story progresses.
+ The very last fight made me giggle nervously, it was so tense and exciting. Gerry obviously knows parcours!

+/- Your choices don't have any consequences for the characters - except for one at the very end of the game - unlike The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us (which made Telltale Games so great). I know you can't judge a game by another game, but let me just warn you now so you won't be disappointed later.
+/- The quick time events have you pressing the WASD buttons in random orders. Sometimes I thought, hey, I get why I have to click left and then right, but that was usually after the fact and oftentimes after I'd already been eaten. But maybe I just suck; and anyway, you can always try again and if you remember the sequence in the right order you'll probably just get a silver medal.
+/- Yoder gets more interesting as the story progresses, but then when he loses it all the sympathy I felt for him seemed misplaced. He went from a flat character to a round one back to flat again.
+/- Graphics are fine, but mouth movement is often distractingly off.
+/- Music is fine, too. Some use of the original soundtrack, but otherwise not very interesting or unique. Does the job.

- Very short; only four episodes, so about six hours.
- Hardly any replay value, unless you want gold medals for every quick time event.
- The relationship between Gerry and Jessi is exactly like the one in the second movie. Get yer own storyline, Telltale!
- You don't really know where the story's going, as the characters make it up as they go along. So when the game ends it's kind of unexpected. If they'd told us at the beginning that we could choose between phoning for a helicopter or getting a boat, we could've at least seen the second option coming. It kinda came outta nowhere now.

As a fan of Jurassic Park, I was quite intrigued by this game. I'm not a huge fan of how it's designed...clicking on arrow keys to see if you escape from a dinosaur or not isn't all that exciting, for instance. However, I do like the storyline and being able to experience Jurassic Park from a different PoV is rather neat. So overall, I do like it; just wish they would've done the gameplay a bit differently.

The game is not terrible but is has it's fair share of glitches that make it at times hard to want to continue playing. The graphics are pretty bad in my opinion too. I simply don't recommend spending money on this game.

If you are a fan of the original movie then you NEED to play this game! Just like with Telltale's Back To The Future game this one is full of tasteful references to the original as well as the original score and even the dinosaur sound effects. Defo recommended!

Pretty solid game, can be played both of keyboard+mouse or gamepad, personally I think the gamepad's gameplay is a lot harder.

The story is pretty linear, not enough branches but playing through it once is enough experience. Re-live the Jurassic Park movie in good graphics, it fills that emptiness of lacking dinosaur games in the recent years. I thoroughly enjoyed the hours I've spent playing this game.

Character development is alright, the player gets to make decision for pretty much everyone.

The game's fairly difficult in terms of reactive gameplay, it will definitely improve your reaction time and allows you to make clutch plays better in other games. I'd be surprised if anyone consistently scoring Gold throughout the game.

The game has interesting puzzles that you have to actually put into effort to solve (or trial and error if you prefer to not do the brain work at all)

A fair bit of jumpscares from time to time.

The only improvement I can think of is the continuity of dialogue/speech/action getting cut off/skipped and the accidental ESC press will bring you to the main menu with delay.

Overall it's another damn good game from Telltale. Worth it.

I must say, I love Telltale games. The Walking Dead 1 & 2, The Wolf Among Us, Back To The Future, and especially the Poker Night at the Inventory series - All excellent games that kept me enthalled, entertained and content for so many hours. Being a gigantic Jurassic Park fan and having watched all the movies and read the book countless times - when I saw that they made a Jurassic park game, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to play it. Unfortunately.. this game fails to deliever on so many levels. Yes, they have the music. Yes, they follow the Jurassic Park storyline. And Yes, they manage to do an excellent job at submersing you into the Jurassic Park world. But other than that, it doesn't have much else to offer. The voice acting isn't the greatest, but it isn't the big issue. The big issues are the poorly sequenced context-sensitive timed events, the lack of impact that your decisions make throughout the storyline/game, and the horrendous amount of glitches that severely hinder your progession. Unlike other Telltale games, Jurassic Park makes you tap multiple keys which pop up on the screen for a mere second of time. I believe this is done to show you how many different death sequences they designed for the game (there are oh so many - in fact, they even put in a death counter to show you many times they stuck it to you). Next there is the lack of impact your decisions make. There is only one point in the game where your choice determines whether or not a character will live or die -- this changes the ending of the game, and it happens right at the very end. Lastly, the glitches. I haven't seen a game so mired with glitches after its release since "Call of Cthulhu" and "Alone in the dark". I had to restart sequences atleast 5 times in all of the 4 episodes of the game in order to progress through the storyline. Having said that, I was determined and managed to contend with all of the glitches, and progress through the abysmal storyline in order to make it to the end of the game, just so I could say that I've beat it, and that I managed to get my money's worth from playing it. -- But I didn't get my moneys worth.. in-fact, I strongly believe Telltale games should pay me for Alpha and Beta testing this atrocious blight upon my steam game library. Buyer beware - this game is not worth your time or your money -- although, if you liked "Gone Home", then you should give 'Jurassic Park: The Game' a try, because you obviously like terrible games and Jurassic Park would be an outstanding addition to your steam library of 'videogame classics'. I hope they don't drop the ball on their upcoming Game of Thrones videogame, or I will completely lose my trust in Telltale's ability to make a decent videogame worth playing. Thanks for reading and I hope my review was helpful!

An Licensed Jurassic Park Game by Telltale Games which plays around the happenings which you can find in the first Jurassic Park Movie,it answer some questions you got from jurassic park 1 and has some interesting crossovers and backstory.Its a great story and if you get easy into feeling games then you will get easy into this one.WARNING : You find in this game alots of quicktime events,if you dont like those and other telltale games had to much for you then dont buy this game.I recommend an xbox 360 controller because of that.Its hardly seen on any sales unfortinate.Its for the roughly 5-6hours time to getting through (4 episodes) the game too expensive on steam (at the moment 27,99€).only recommend it if .: you get it on any sale or if you really want to play it ,but be aware of the qucktime event warning.

I started the game from the 1st episode screening through a projector on my wall lying on my bed playing with a gamepad & ended it. As at this time we are hearing of an upcoming film being made: Jurassic Park 4, this was an appetising opening act.
Sure, it is like they say with fumbling controls; but the story made it worth the excitement almost like watching a Jurassic Park film that I had never watched before (having watched 1,2 & 3). Indeed, apart from basic similarities, it was different (introducing Dennis Nedry) and refreshing, preparing me in awe for the upcoming film! If it was more like the films than it already is (minimally) I may have been upset as the handling was really quite fickle, I endured the acrobatic controls to enjoy a NEW story now rather. I enjoyed the game on the wall instead the big picture took so much of the frustration caused by the controls away! Game on.

Really fun, controls are a bit odd and it takes a little to get used to them but its a cool experenice if you are a hard core fan of the movies.

The QTE time is insane, my one qualm is that sometimes its a guessing game that you have no time to react to and it feels like a futile fight when you can't get a segment right.

I will only recommend this to hardcore fans of the Jurassic Park series. Casual wise, this may or may not satisfy you.

While I deeply love Telltale and the game itself, I also have a few minor complaints when it comes to that being the animation glitches and loading times between new scenes. My biggest gripe is that the story is a "been there, done that" kind of thing where the last 3 movies already did so. i.e. Stuck on a island, dionsaurs running rampant, chaos ensures. So, it just constantly drags on. Granted the new characters are ok, but not in the sense of nostalgia. John Hammond (including the aftermath of Dennis Nedry) is howerver referenced here and there considering this story (reminder that this is non-canon story) takes place in between the original and Lost World. The only thing that sets this Jurassic Park different from the rest is the inclusion of new dinos such as the Troodon and the Tylosaurus.

Gameplay wise, its the stuff you should expect from a TellTale game, given that this game is a point and click adventure much like the beloved Walking Dead game also released from TellTale. There was some annoying segments such as the action command either not showing up or it goes to fast making timing a chore.

Is it worth the $30 price tag? I will just say wait for it to be on sale if it's to expensive for you, but with a side warning as stated above.

Got eaten by a T-Rex for the sake of shaving cream.


Really fun game about dinosaurs, dinosaurs also dinosaurs. Did I mention there are dinosaurs? Funny that half the fun of the game is watching all the different ways you can get yourself gruesomely murdered by... you guessed it, dinosaurs. Interesting story and characters as well, tricky QTE and and extremely challenging achievements. Fans of the films will most likely enjoy this game, I know I did. Nothing else to say, worth buying.
