Review: Jurassic Park photo
Review: Jurassic Park
by Darren Nakamura

Telltale Games has an established modus operandi for making games. The developer obtains licenses to beloved old franchises, then expands the universe with its own fiction, along with a dose of puzzle solving and exploration. It worked well enough with Back to the Future, and now the developer hopes to rein in dinosaur fans with a four-episode game dedicated to another old movie that many hold dear in their hearts: Jurassic Park.

The opening sequence sets the tone for the game. A mysterious woman is being chased through the jungle by dinosaurs, until she falls off a cliff and is nearly hit by a car. The scene brings up several questions, like, "Who is this woman?" and "What is she doing on Isla Nublar?" and "Is the main focus of this game going to be a series of quick time events in which people run away from dinosaurs?"

By the time the end credits are rolling, the answers to these questions are clear. Respectively, they are "I don't care," "I don't care," and "unfortunately yes."
