I struggled with whether or not I would recommend this game. In the end. I think the cons far outweigh the pros. 6/10

Pros:
1. Decent storyline
2. Good voice acting, although it was bad at times
3. Jurassic Park nostalgia
4. Nice continuation from the first movie
5. Some interesting scenarios...

Cons:
1. and some bad, bland, and uninteresting scenarios
2. Mentioned above... the voice acting had rough patches
3. Storyline, although decent, felt loose and less fleshed out than I thought it could have been
4. Characters and personalities were kind of annoying, never really shined
5. The quick time events felt unresponsive at times and even unfair

While I love most things Jurassic Park, I can't add this to my list of recommendations. This one can easily be skipped. You wouldn't miss much. Sorry Telltale games, you've made much better!

Game centered around advertising Barbasol shaving cream. I'm not sure how much they paid, but it must have been a large sum.

The game itself likely lasts around 2 hours, however you will spend six hours on it due lengthy animations retrying to get past death scenes.

90% of the story is a stretch. For example, you unlock a locked, key-coded door by placing a picture on a wall.

Noone in this game actually had to die if they would have waited around for dinos to leave.

This game made me more misogynistic.

Only reason I suggest this game is because you are probably bored looking for a game to fill the void that BF2 predecessors left.

Get this through Humble Bundle.

Worth $5-10 tops.

Another Telltale game that I really liked, although it's a bit of a pain to figure out ways around bugs! Once you're able to get around the first major bug (cursor disappearing and refusing to come back without either reloading or restarting the game), then the minor bug (cursor disappearing) in the rest of the game is a cakewalk. It would be nice to get the bug fixed.

However, I liked that this was based around Jurassic Park and loved how it connected itself to the movie. I would definitely buy this game ONLY if you can get a really good deal and HIGHLY recommend reading the discussion boards to help with the bugs. Although, if you don't want to be bothered by bugs, I'd pass on this game.

the game would probably be ok, IF YOU COULD ACTUALLY SKIP THE CUT SCENES! You will be driven mad by watching the cut scenes again, again and again. Besides that the game is nothing but pressing keys in a special sequence and fast

Overall a good game, with a story that would have been cool as a movie...The graphics were a bit sub par even at 4k, the game play was pretty easy once you learnt that you could just mash the buttons to achieve success. I didn't care for the fact that at times the game didn't catch the that i pressed the correct button because it was loading or saving but other than that a typical telltale game..Good voice actors, good story made up for the junky graphics and kind of junky mechanics..They even showed us the dead and eaten dennis nedry , guess he didn't say the magic word to the dinosaur before being eaten..

While most of action in the game was as about as believable as your typical action flick (meaning that no way could anyone have actually survived if this was real), it was still fun to play through. The story told in the setting of the Jurassic Park movie/book is origingal, though completely based around the well-known and loved story. As far as I could tell, not many choices actually change the story other than some dialog options and sadly it doesn't let you compare your choices to those of others. It's an adventure game, meaning that it's really based on story more than skill, though sometimes pressing buttons exactly right required me to try several times (I did a lot of dying). There are also fun acheievements to unlock as you go to keep things interesting. I'd say that compared to The Walking Dead games by Telltale, which I gave 5/5 stars, this gets a 4/5 stars. It's super fun and definitately intense, though there were only a few moral dilemas. I felt like some of the "puzzles" one had to solve were just space/time fillers, but then again, I dislike puzzles and prefer drama more. It kind of felt like we were forced into various puzzles that felt silly.
Bottom line: I recommend this game to anyone who likes adventure games that are based on story, adventures, and thrills.

Has massive technical problems - audio bugs out from time to time, graphical glitches, controls sometimes not responsive and sometimes the game will repeat dialogues twice. Even if you look past that, it's a big quicktime event mess with sometimes ridiculous moments. And the one thing that Telltale games are based around - the story is generic and forgettable. There's nothing I can recommend about this one.

QTE's are awfull.
The music is very good and nostalgic, and it's easy to finish an episode in 1.5 to 2 hours. With a total of 4 episodes it doesn't take long to finish.
The story, despite being simple and just a bit bland, is a good sequel to Jurasssic Park itself. It's very linear and decision making have no real impact on later events but that and QTE's aside I enjoyed myself.

The dinosaurs were awesome. Seriously the dinosaurs really made it all up to me. Especially the big ones.

In short it's mediocre game, wouldn't reccomend it for full price. But it can be a fun time waster and dino's are awesome.

It wasn't that bad (though story was little bit boring) and dinos were good looking.


Big minus is that the game doesn't have pause button. I really needed to pee, but couldn't stop until I saw autosave icon, I mean I did that mistake once: pressed esc and game returned to main menu and I had to play same scenes again.

I wrote a longer review, but it didn't save for some reason q_q. So super shortened version:

6-8hrs of Gameplay to complete

Game is awesome so long as you don't mind controller input error being a thing (if you don't press it 100% DIRECTLY Right when it says "R analog >" it will count it wrong 90% of the time.. there's no sensativity setting to fix this) then you'll be happy with this game. That being said, with the occasional input error, you get to see a lot of the awesome death sequences you wouldn't otherwise see, a lot of them are really well done and intense ^_^ #silverliningboys)

Make sure you talk to the people with the R-Trigger when available otherwise the story/characters might feel bland. Remember, in Telltale games, YOU control the story being told. Dialog is important; explore it.

I got emotionally attached to the characters. Experienced joy, frustration, worry, edge of my seat intense moments.

Soundtrack, scenery, voice acting = immersive and fine as butts ^_^

Caters to the fans of the original movie, but isn't JUST for fans of the original movie, because it can easily stand alone as it's own story.

I wouldn't recommend buying it at full price (because of the controller input issues being potentially very frustrating to some people), but definitely pick it up during a sale.

*Should be noted, it doesn't recap your stats or story at the end like some of the other Telltale games does, which is disappointing, I wanted to know how many times I died to the button boss.*

I wanted to get through Jurassic Park: The Game before reviewing it, but I could not. Of the three parts, I arrived at the third part before my patience wtih this game ran out. It's less adventure game, more Quick Time Events: The Game.

The tutorial explains half of the controls -- but not what the Directional Pad does or how to handle the commands with teh slowly shrinking circles. The former changes locations and the latter must be pressed AFTER the otuer circle connects with the inner circle. Not all of the command prompts stay on the screen long enough for you to complete the action. If you're going for gold medals in all of the segments, good luck to you. I'm sharing these so that you might find some enjoyment in the game where I could not.

That said, if you want to see what it's like to witness your characters falling prey to dinosaurs, I hope you never get tired of seeing it. You will see it happen a lot.

By many measures, an enjoyable game experience that rises above its faults and limitations. Jurassic Park: The Game by Telltale Games lacks many of the qualities that have made their more recent games so successful, but when viewed by itself; stands as a solid dinosaur-themed adventure.

Expect something akin to a visual novel with button rhythm elements and plenty of tension. You could likely play through the story in approximately 6 hours, but you'll get a lot more out of your purchase if you're an achievement junky. There are some bugs that aren't going to go away and some of them inadvertently make achievement hunting more frustrating than it should be, but it's far from game-breaking. The going rate of $19.99 is probably asking too much at this point, but for $8.00 or so this is a worthwhile pick-up for anyone who likes to be chased by dinos and/or prefers their games heavy on story-telling.

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.

I really wanted to like this game because I love the newer Telltalle Games but after episode 1, it just disappointed and became a huge yawn. It's very buggy and laggy, scenes don't playout smoothly where character models jump around in a glitchy manner and every once in a while the cursor disappears completely.

What I really hated most about this game is that I hated all of the characters, and you're suppose to play and choose dialogue for almost if not all of them. Which is confusing because I both hate them and want them to get eaten ASAP but the game expects me to choose good choices. It's very confusing and contridating.

Many people complain about the quicktime events but honestly, I look forward to them because it was both really action packed and super exciting to play through, as well as it prevents me from falling to sleep to the sounds of their boring ♥♥♥ conversations. I think the most interesting conversation in the whole game is the one between the dad and the little girl... and that's not even part of the main game, it's background dialogue. The voice acting is awesome but damn was it a chore to get through.

Excusing my rant, don't get this game. Only get Telltale's games from The Walking Dead and up.

4/10

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.

A nice game, played it for some time, finished the game four times by now.
I loved the game as a Jurassic Park fan, i could even say this could be a nice movie like JP 1.5.
I really liked the way they explained a lot of things, some curiosities about the dinossaurs and the creators like Doctor Wu.
The characters are not the "epic" point of the story, nevertheless we can still enjoy most of then or at least the death!
If you do like JP or just enjoy games like "The Walking Dead", "Game of Thrones" and many others of TellTales Games, i recommend this game, a shame they don't have cards :(

"When i don't like a character, i like to enjoy his death over and over again, 11/10 would kill some more!"

Game Play is horrible. First Telltale Game that i actually thought of not playing through. I wanna know the end so I'm forcing myself to go on. But man i wanna bite my keyboard eachtime the quick time bar is complete and the game says I failed. bye the end of the game i probably will die 200 times... as addition my mouse disapears and other annoying bugs. tried playing with a game pad but the quqick time events are just not intuitive and horribly in accurate. Characters are ok, got some random names and the game doesn't really achieve to make you like them. hope the plot will reward me in the end. and i can write something positive as long i must give thumbs down and tell you guys not to buy even though you like dinos like i do.

Very weak from gameplay perspective - no freedom at all, you cannot even move your characters, it's just a mediocre horror movie with LOADS of QTEs forced into it - you sometimes have to do QTE to just walk!

Boring story with very weak stereotypical characters.

Poorly optimized - games lags and stutters at ending of each scene. It looks much worse than newer TT games, yet it plays slower and weaker than them.

Not playable without controler - mouse cursor dissapearing each time you go to pause screen. Try to do cursor-oriented QTEs without seeing a cursor...

By far the weakest game I've played from TellTale. Avoid.

Overview: Interactive Movie with quick time events


The Bad:

- One quick time event after another

- You can dodge a T-rex ready to bite you simply by rolling out of the way.

- You can outrun a velociraptor and T-rex on foot

- You can stop a dinosaur from biting you simply by grabbing its head

- Dinosaurs are not very threatening

- Terrible characters and awful dialogue

- Music and Sound glitches

Conclusion

One of Telltales first games and it shows. Luckily if you want a Jurassic Park fix simply watch the first movie, you will have a much better time. How anybody on the development team thought the scenarios with these dinosaurs were good is beyond me.

K I recommend this game to anyone who loves dinosaurs, and liked the previous movies. Overall the story is pretty interesting, and there are tense points in the game.

HOWEVER I'm sure all of you guys realize at this point that this game is a point and click. It does not seem like that was their intention from the beginning or something because this is a very poorly executed game of this sort. I can accept point and click adventures if I like the story but sometimes this really gets ridiculous. It switches perspectives WAY too much. You're listening to a really heated coversation between a veterinarian and geneticist about how the woman is a madman, and you've been choosing dialogue options for the veternarian. OK, not that bad, although I just wanted to sit back and watch this.

But then you make me choose the dialogue options for the madman? IN EVERY SINGLE ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ CONVERSATION YOU HAVE TO PICK THE DIALOGUE OPTIONS FOR EVERYONE EVEN IF ONE OF THEM IS CLEARLY ♥♥♥♥ING INSANE AND YOU MOST OF THESE DIALOGUE OPTIONS YOU WILL NOT LIKE! What the ♥♥♥♥? Really poor design. I can't side with the madman at all so you're literally forcing me to pick nothing. I'm glad this game flopped because they deserved it for designing this game so poorly. ♥♥♥♥ing dumbasses.

OH YPIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I GET TO GO THROUGH A SCENE WHERE I HAVE TO PRESS TIMED LEFT AND RIGHT FOR THIS CHARACTER WHO APPARENTLY IS TOO ♥♥♥♥ING STUPID TO WALK ON HIS OWN, AND GOES THROUGH A ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ 15 SECOND LONG CUTSCENE BERATING YOU FOR HIS INABILITY TO WALK. YOU GUYS ARE SO ♥♥♥♥ING STUPID, WHAT THE HELL WAS THIS GAME? The developers who made this game were so ♥♥♥♥ing stupid and should be jailed for the controls in this ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥♥cuking piece of mother♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥

This game has potential from a rocking story line. Sadly it doesn't follow through. Bugs from start to where I quit out of frustration. Start of chapter 2 will lock you up in dialog and never let you pass. Many time GUI goes out in chapter 1, but you can play "in the dark". Very difficult playing experience. I wanted to play, just cant... Cant recommend to anyone else, even for a few bucks just not worth the frustration.

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.

One of my favorite games! 10 out of 10!!! It is developed by one of the best game studios out there -> Telltale Games <3. The game follows the original story and it's also a follow-up.

If you happen to have a bug, which I personally call it "gamepad bug" (the gamepad is not detected in-game), you must copy-paste a ".dll" file called "dinput8.dll" (without quotes :P ) to your "Jurassic Park: The Game" folder, located wherever you installed the game to. You can also get this file from a "Windows 7" install DVD if you have one lying around and possibly be able to download it from Microsoft's website.

Being a huge Jurassic Park fan since the 90's, owning this game was a must. The story to this game isnt bad at all, it has some fun tense moments that I wish the films included. However the only huge downside I had to this game was that Telltale changed up the mechanics of this game with those ♥♥♥♥ing annoying arrows. So it had some really frustrating moments when you had to hit (sometimes predict) what keys to hit, if you messed it it would lower your overall situational score from gold to silver to bronze to nothing. If you died so many times, they made it easier after so many messups. Story wasnt too bad but it wasnt exactly the BEST. If you can handle watching Jurassic Park III, then you can handle the story in this game. Wait to buy this game while its on sale for at least $7 or under. Overall, the worst Telltale game I've ever played. I'd expect more coming from the developers of The Wolf Among us, The Walking Dead, and even Game of thrones. However, it wasn't a bad game for any true hardcore Jurassic Park fan must own, just gotta have a high tolerance for annoying characters, slow story, and annoying ♥♥♥♥ing controls.

This game ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off. Usually I adore Telltale games and I am particularly into any dinosaur things, but this game has way TOO MUCH QTE! With adequate number, players can have more tensed experience, but QTE in this game just ruin the story! I have to S/L a lot of times before I can go further.

Pros:
+ Story.
+ Characters: especially bad-♥♥♥ Oscar and clever Jess. Don't like others though.
+ Dinos.

Cons:
- QTEs.
- Drop in FPS sometimes.

I will give it a 5/10. Won't recommend to anyone who is not skilled or patient enough.
