Storyline

The Sega games based on the Jurassic Park movie/book differ from the games made by Ocean for other platforms. Basically, Sega's Jurassic Park is a side-scrolling action game. You jump from platform to platform, pick up weapons and health items, and try to make it to the end of the level with all your lives intact. This version of Jurassic Park does feature an interesting twist, however. You can play it either as Dr. Grant, or as a Velociraptor. The story and level design changes based on which character you use. Written by Shawn Watson

Quickly walk away from the dinosaurs!
27 August 2008 | by jerekraSee all my reviews

No game is perfect. This game is good and bad. There are some good things about it and some bad things.

You play as Alan Grant. The point of the game is to make it off of Jurassic Park alive.

You have a gun of some kind that can fire two different types of shells at dinosaurs.

All of the main dinosaurs from the movies are there, Velociraptor, Dilophosaurus, Triceratops, Gallimimus, Pachysaphalasaurus, Compsognathus, and Tyrannosaurus. There also is this giant dragonfly that flies around. The animation for the dinosaurs, scenery, and Grant are all pretty good for a SNES game.

Most of the game is an overhead view where you can see Grant and move him around. However when you go inside of buildings it switches to a first person view like Doom or Wolfenstein.

The controls are pretty simple. You move slowly, there is no way to run in this game. That is one of my biggest complaints for this game, Grant moves SOOOOOOOO SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. You cant sprint to get to places and if the Tyrannosaurus comes after you there is no way you can walk away from you, he will catch you every time since Grant moves so slowly.

Getting around from place to place can be a pain in the ass also. This is not a game with different levels, there is just one huge map you are on and have to complete a lot of objectives to beat the game. But you have to keep going back and forth across the map to do different things and it takes forever because you move slowly.

You have to pick up these key cards of various people in Jurassic Park and use them to open up certain doors inside of buildings. There are so many to collect though.

Another thing you have to pick up is raptor eggs. Whenever you see one you pick it up. There are a lot of them though and I still have not found them though.

Another issue is the music. At times it is just up tempo music that goes good with the game. But other times the music is scary and makes you feel nervous. When you go inside of buildings you hear this scary music that repeats over and over and is terrifying. ALso it is really dark inside buildings too, playing this game alone at night is not a good idea. You can turn the music off but if you do that you wont be able to hear the music that acts as a warning for when the Tyrannosaurus is coming. So kind of damned if you do and damned if you don't with the music.

There are only some dinosaurs that you can kill. Tyrannosaurus can only be stopped by Tranquilizers and don't even try to shoot the Triceratops. ALl of the others can be killed, pretty easily too if you use the rocket launcher or bola snare.

While you are playing tid bits of information that is useful will pop up right in the middle of the screen. This is useful but also very annoying because it blocks your view badly. I cant count the number of times I was walking around and a screen pope up saying "Dont shoot the Gallimimus, they may stampede." Some of the information people give you is wrong too. Like when Nedry tells you to jump onto the electric fence for an extra life. I tried it, and it did not work. If you press R it will make the information screen go away. YOu can also see information screens come up if you touch these tall metal poles that are found throughout the game.

You have to be careful when going inside buildings. There are some rooms where you need night vision goggles to see. IF you go in the room without night vision goggles on you die right away. ALso if you get night vision goggles they only work for the time you are in that building. IF you leave and go into another building you have to find new night vision goggles. Stuff like that makes this game annoying. Also when you are inside it is easy to get lost since many rooms look the same. SOmetimes it is a good idea to die so that you can re spawn from the last building you entered of information pole you touched.

Also there are these gates you must pass through to get to different parts of the park. YOu have to shoot the axle to get it to open and then walk through before it closes. First though you must go inside and navigate on the computer to make sure that you can open that particular gate. Ahhhg.

Overall this game is OK. IT is really hard to beat, not because it is overly difficult, it just takes so damn long to get around places and find what you need to advance. I know that I can beat it, but the question is do I want to waste half my life doing it? (Ok maybe not that long.) Maybe one day I will sit down and go through the whole game and beat it. IF anything this game is worth playing, its not that hard, just confusing and time consuming.
