Jurassic Park The Game 

 

I remember meeting TellTale Games at E3 for the first time many years ago. They publish some interesting games. Not everything is good for our audience, but we pay attention to them. They work with some big franchises that gamers have always wanted good games for. Jurassic Park The Game is a classic example. There have been Jurassic Park video games in the past, but few of them have been memorable. At least until now.

Jurassic Park The Game is for the older members of the family with its 'T' for Teen rating. The lengthy list of descriptors will bug out quite a few eyes. I know it did me at first. Adults that want to get up close and personal with some dinosaurs will find an immersive video game. Family Friendly Gaming was provided the Xbox 360 version of Jurassic Park The Game for this review. It is also on the Personal Computer, Mac, and Playstation 3.

Jurassic Park The Game is dark, bloody, and scary. The dinosaurs will freak you out. I know they freaked me out. The blood and gore fits the theme of dinosaurs feeding on humans. It is still disturbing. As is the enticement to lust issues in Jurassic Park The Game. I could have done without that. I can understand the blood and violence. Dinosaurs are not exactly cuddly little critters. I am not sad they are extinct.

The language in Jurassic Park The Game fit some 'R' rated movies I have seen. We kept asking ourselves: "did he just say what we think he/she said?" I understand attitudes from certain characters in such extreme situations. The language however could have been left on the cutting room floor so more members of the family could enjoy this game.

One thing TellTale Games has been excelling at is including tons of content. Jurassic Park The Game is no exception. There are enough hours of game play to warrant the purchase (editor: as long as you are able to handle the content issues). I really appreciate them putting the episodes together on one home console disc.

Jurassic Park The Game is a fun game to play. Certain buttons have to be pressed at certain times during what looks like movies. So a character is falling down a cliff and you have to hit a button to grab a branch at the right time. Too many mistakes and you fall to your death. There are also puzzles to solve. What happened to the stolen embryos? Can you track things down and interact with the environment in the right way to progress the story? Jurassic Park The Game made me think about the game environment in ways I had not considered before.

The dinosaurs want to eat you. You would like to stay alive to move through the game. Jurassic Park The Game is kind by letting players replay areas after dying. I have to be upfront that Jurassic Park The Game is not for every member of the family. This game is for the older members of the family only. Those that venture into this park will find a deep game with a fair amount of disturbing content.

If you choose to play Jurassic Park The Game I hope you have a strong heart. It will scare you at various instances even if you know what is going to happen. Jurassic Park The Game teaches us how frail and weak we really are.
