7/10

As much interactive choice as watching the 1993 movie... without any of the great characters that contributed to the film's success. The artwork and sound effects are great! and the point and click style with QTE provides a much needed difficulty curve to the Telltale experience.

Now that's Chaos Theory!

Edit: 8/10 because my dog tries to attack my display whenever I launch this game

Great game if you are a Jurassic Park fan. It is very short though, 4 episodes total and i spent 6 hours beating all 4 with some paused time and 17 deaths. So I could see this being a 5 hour game for some. With that said you might want to get this during a sale. full price which i Think is 30 bucks is not worth it at all. but if you can get it on sale it is enjoyable. This is only the second Telltale game ive played with this style of gameplay. The Other being Game Of Thrones. So far through 2 episodes of Game of thrones I would compare the two with Jurassic Park being more difficult but Game of Thrones episodes are longer and It has a better story. Jurrasic park is more in your face action packed just like the movie. Jurassic Park also has a bit more of a puzzle element that so far Game of thrones lacks.

To sum it up get this on sale if you like Jurassic park or the other telltale games of this style. If its not on sale or you are not a fan of the interactive movie type games then I would stay away.

★★★☆☆

Pros:
- It almost feels like another Jurassic Park movie, the story really is that good.
- The puzzles elements to the game are varied and imaginative.
- Really good use of licensing and ties in with the original 1993 movie brilliantly.
- Lots of tense and memorable scenes involving both old and new dinosaurs.
- Awesome character building as usual from Telltale.
- More challenging then other Telltale instalments.

Cons:
- The voice acting is just lame and a real let down.
- Graphically the game is below average, the dines look good but the game isn't that old.
- The quick time events are often unnecessary at times and would benefit from a normal scene.
- Just four episodes, shortest Telltale game I've played.
- The structure of interaction took some getting used to as its slow and a little awkward.
- Decision making is varied but theres no real indication that your decision have an effect on the game.

Verdict: Being one of the earliest Telltale game you can see where they took direction and done away with lots they tried in this game, for the better. Superficially the games poor but the story and fact it was Jurassic Park meant I enjoyed it.

When my daughter asks for a dinosaur game, I know just what to play. This game is really great. Once again, Telltale makes a great game that wants to be a movie. Personally, I feel they should have used this game story for a movie sequel. The story is much more believable than the sequels were, and I really like the characters. The characters grow and change through the game, so be prepared to change loyalties. Most of the game is played through choosing conversation options and the quick time events. You are graded by performance, so make sure you make the right responses and have a quick trigger finger because it can cost you. The game looks good and the soundtrack makes good use of sounding like a Jurassic Park score. You'll hear all your favorite themes from the film, but not so much that it sounds like they ran out of ideas. The only complaint is that the game can lag. The game wants to be a film, and sometimes there is a pause between sequences. It's like when the DVD skips momentarily. It doesn't really hinder gameplay, but it can be a minor annoyance. Also, the mouse pointer may disappear, but that can be fixed by just reloading the segment you were at. These two glitches did not keep me from enjoying the game and I am working on another playthrough just to get the rest of the achievements and play for a slightly different outcome. If you liked the movie Jurassic Park, I am certain that this game will not disappoint.

One of the primary reasons why the original Jurassic Park film from 1993 is so great is Spielberg's excellent blend of adventure and suspense. One moment you're gazing at the amazing dinosaurs, that graphically, hold up really well today; and the next moment your clenching your buttcheeks as the Trex and raptors are trapping the intrepid explorers in cars, trees and kitchens. Spielberg sucks you in, chews you and spits you out. It's a very immersive experience. Immersion is where the game then misses the mark.

Considering that all of the game's action sequences are entirely played out with quick-time events you're at the game's mercy when it comes to survival. While this would be tense and suspenseful in other game, Jurassic Park: The Game consitently pops a shiny healthbar in your face right before the action begins. Both spoiling the surprise and giving you a reason, other than your survival to play for (namely medals). It draws you out, while a moment before you were still sort of among the creatures of yore.

The immersion breaking doesn't end there. The character models often act and move like poorly articulated puppets, and their props tend to float around in their hands. Furthermore, when they move, they often run straight toward the doorpost in one angle, but safely sail through the door opening in the next. When the action subsides you'll be solving puzzles. By my account I played maybe four actual puzzles and everything else was related to sequential dialog options.

It's a shame though, because the game really thrives when it plays with its source material; showing you sections of the park that weren't shown in the films. It game is at its best at the end, where it fully embraces it's Spielberg roots by going straight back to Jaws. However, on its downtime, it is rather dissapointing.
