Is Jeff Goldblum in it? What about Sammy Jackson? George Costanza? If there is no Sam Neil, I'm not getting it.

Okay, so I was honestly not expecting this. I think this is the first thing I've seen of Jurassic Park for... what, 7 years? 6 maybe? So yeah, that was kind of out of the blue for me. Weird.

Must've been a package deal with licensing or something. This was originally announced about the same time Telltale announced it was working on a Back to the Future game. (Which is currently on it's second episode)



As for this not working so well on PC due to the controls... Use an Xbox controller? They all have PC drivers available... XD (Yeah, I know. That won't help if they change the coding behind the control scheme. But you know what I'm getting at, I'm sure. ;p)

"press certain buttons to A) honk the horn Y) flick the headlights or R3) check the glove box for the code." Didn't know the xbox controller had an R3 button.

This is sounding good, it's been far too long since there was a good dinosaur game (or anything else for that matter). And finally a game with a vet as the main character showing just how awsome our profession can be!

I really hope that this comes out on the XBLA, or I am going to be sorely disappointed.I am not the hugest fan of QTEs, but I don't mind them at all if they are used well, and from the sounds of it this game makes them work very well indeed. Couple that with the fact that it's a Jurassic Park game, and I'm already sold on the idea

I always like that Jurrasic Park light gun arcade game, and the snes game version of the movie. The Megadrive version looked nice, but felt weak in comparison.

A Quicktime game based off JP doesnt really sound all that good, but hey, maybe it will turn out halfway decent.

personally, one play through of Heavy Rain was more than enough for me. i'd never give it a second go 'round. that being said, if this new JP game has controls inspired by or too similar to Heavy Rain, i'll give it a miss. for Heavy Rain, the story was compelling, but was really marred by hours and hours of absolutely boring gameplay. i'd hate to see Jurassic Park suffer from the same fate.
I am with you!

I want a GAME and not an interactive Movie / Quicktime Events!

That's what they call pressing the right analog stick.

I would love a new Jurassic Park game, but a quick-time event starring Sarah Harding? Sounds horrible. She was annoying enough in the movie.

Am I the only one who thinks this sounds like a browser-based flash-game? Dodge the dinosaurs, free/squish the annoying future biologist.

Sounds... meh. Didn't really enjoy Heavy Rain. I'd rather see another Operation Genesis. Can't we have THAT?

What the hell is Sarah doing on the Island? You would think she would tell that to Malcolm in the second movie or book, where she actually encounters dinosaurs for the first time...makes no sense.

Sorry guys, I was wrong. The teenage daughter isn't a young Sarah, but a new character named Ness. Corrected in the text.

Yeah, I didn't understand how she got so old to be played by Julianne Moore later in the timeline...

Here I will be the very face of nitpicking and point out that any wounded speaker of Spanish found on the island would very likely be Costa Rican, and not a Spaniard. Otherwise a very nice article.

I'm definitely looking forward to this game. I'm hoping that my local EB gets it in (despite their tiny corner of PC games, a literal corner.) or it pops up on Steam.

QTE based? It sounds like a piece a shit. A Jurassic Park game could be awesome, too. There's a TON of stuff you could do in that universe. They chose Heavy Rain as inspiration? I am disappoint indeed.
