The player takes role of Anne, a young woman lost on an island full of dinosaurs. The goal is, of course, to escape the place, but first you'll have to travel around the island, making your way through hordes of unfriendly animals. The game was hyped in media before it's release, but is generally considered a failure, poorly recieved by computer game reviewers. The truth is that the game had many interesting features. Some of them were really revolutionary for the time of release, bur the overall apperance of the game was rather disappointing, compared to presspack before the sales launched.There's still a strong fanbase on the Internet, though.
a good game but a bit anonnying at times like picking stuff up off the ground can take the micky or when being chased by a t-rex and having no where to get away from it or hide from it
but the game is good at times and can even scare you at times like when a raptor is coming towards you and your thinging "i'll just let it get a little closer"
i would love if sombody made a remake of this game and added someing like online play people vs dinos
i got this game for £3.99 and there are places where you can get it free on the internet
Deserves more recognition that it initially got. Has been said to have inspired developers of today's modern games/engines, such as Half life 2.
It had the right idea, just everything was against it. The graphics are perfectly good for a game that out in 1998, although without any modification, the draw distance and LOD'ing is generally quite pixelated.
The arm takes, some getting used too, and is tricky at times, especially in cramped conditions, you can find yourself dropping the item and can get stuck sometimes in objects.
Great dialogue from Hammond plays on the background as you move throughout each level, so while the game is not 100% on the gameplay the idea of listening to Hammonds memoirs at points throughout the game adds something no other Jurassic Park game has done, and suddenly has two stories to tell.
It is fairly long, and can sometimes prove to be a bit tricky to work with some puzzles, but nothing is impossible, and the (not always so good physics can even help in some cases.
