Should I buy this game?

posted by Sox&Rocks22 on - last edited - Viewed by 980 users

So I'm relatively new to telltale's games. Ive played and loved the first three episodes of the walking dead series. But recently I saw some footage of the Jurassic Park game and I thought it looked pretty cool. I probably woud have got this game by now but Ive heard some really bad things about it. The thing is Episode 4 of TWD is still a ways off and I'd really like to break into something new so I'll give one more go.

Please let me know if this game is worth my time. Also Im getting the 360 version if that makes a difference. Thanks guys.

  • It depends if you like a game that's almost completely QTE's with about 1 or 2 puzzles in each episode but I think Back To The Future is better than Jurassic Park and for that matter almost all of Telltale's games are far better than Jurassic Park in my opinion.

  • I really liked Heavy Rain and thats big on QTEs. Is the story atleast engaging enough?

  • It's basically pure QTE. The puzzles are minor, and usually blend right into the QTEs.

    IF you're a big JP fan, and you're okay with the gameplay style(watch a vid on Youtube to be sure), it is a fun game with a good story that ties right into the first movie.

  • That's the biggest thing. The story is good and really ties into the movie well, but the gameplay isn't quite as engaging as other games out there, even in the TellTale library. It all depends on if you're a fan of Jurassic Park or not.

  • I love THE STORY in this game. I HATE the gameplay. I think if you're a Jurassic Park fan and you can get the game at a good price I say go for it. My biggest problem with it is that Telltale have made a GREAT Jurassic Park "movie" but a terrible game. I would enjoy sitting watching this play through as a film. I'm not overly enjoying playing it. The issue is the qte's. Soooo frustrating. You need almost superhuman reflexes in order to hit the right directions on que without having first died 2 or 3 times and memorized the sequence. They are an exercise in frustration. Many times during the qte's I have exclaimed how stupid and annoying this game is (amongst the expletives) but I DO continue playing it because I AM enjoying the story.

  • Do not buy this game. The characters in this game will drive you nuts with their stupidity!

    To be perfectly frank, the characters in the movie weren't exactly Albert Einstein either.

    He's complained before about this, and I don't get it. The game characters are no less intelligent than any other PC or NPC.

  • I think overall the characters were pretty good. Somewhat movie stereotypes and not all that deep but I didn't feel like there was anything bad about them. I think the biggest complaint is SPOILERS.......... right near the end. I don't care how intent the guy was to get the canister before it fell in the water you don't suddenly forget that there's a hungry T-Rex chasing after you. Other then that I felt like the characters were just typical "movie" characters. This is an action story not an in depth study of the human condition. Can't expect too much.

  • Well I did get it and I had alot of fun with it. Enjoyed the story and didnt mind the QTEs for the most part. All in all, no regrets.
