Telltale is really best at making adventure games! The Jurassic Park concept doesn't, for the most part, lend itself to adventure games! The best type of Jurassic Park game is one where you you get a bunch of different weapons and shoot at a bunch of cool looking dinosaurs! This isn't the type of game Telltale has made thus far and I'm not sure if they will start now! And Jurassic Park has, for the most part, no humor, so thats out! Unless your gonna spend you whole time running around looking for keys to open doors with dinosaurs chasing you or something, I don't really see what they can do with this!

    You're definately the first person i know who says that JP has interesting characters.


    Maybe "interesting" isn't the right word for the films. But, a majority of the science in the first film is delivered by dialog-- thus, to me, the characters are "interesting." But, for the game, we've written some interesting characters.

    I think the best aspects about JP (part 1 was way better than the rest) are Spielberg's capabilities, the dinos, ILM, Sam Neill & Jeff Goldblum, maybe some of the humour, did i mention the dinos already?
    So, you liked Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum, but didn't find their characters interesting? Or were you saying I'm the first person who had a similar opinion to yours?

  • The Characters In the films and the novel are interesting to me at least, because of there personalities and some of the mannerisms they have.

    But then again the characters from the movies are different from their novel counterparts, well at least thats the way I see it.

  • Personally, I prefer Hammond's film version to the novel one. I don't know exactly why, but he has always been my favorite character in the movies.
    And Hammond is probably the most interesting character, at least in my opinion: He's trying to do good things, but ends up doing bad ones.

    How come that isn't interesting???

    Well Hammond in the novel, was a mean old man, and didn't care about anything but himself.

    While in the movie, he was a jolly old man. Who cared about everybody.

  • I spent over an hour crafting a thoughtful response to SINAZ, only to come back and find that it never actually posted! Stupid computer! Stupid Internet! Computer why do hate me so? BTW I was always planning on buying TT's JP! This was more of a I hope TT didn't shoot themselves in the foot type thing!

    Don't worry about it. It's just that there are so many newbies that post "OH MY GAWD TT CAN'T DO JP LOLOLOL" that we are kinda used to defend Telltale.

    But I think they really know what they're doing :)

    I think they are stereotypical characters and so not really interesting, interesting characters really look different to me. I like Sam Neill as an actor and Jeff Goldblum has a few funny lines in the film but that doesn't make their characters more interesting, at least imho.

  • To me the story's not about Grant or Malcolm. They're just there to provide some context to the bigger story that's unfolding around them. While most stories need interesting characters to move forward, in this one they're more like observers (our window into the island) of a new world, which is the driving force.

    The dinos have more personality than the actors, but then they are the actual stars of the movie.

  • I think that Jurassic Park I is a very well done movie, II and III sometimes even feel like b-movies, and it is an very entertaining one for the whole family but it doesn't provide interesting characters. The magic of the movie comes from Spielberg's ability of making a good movie of Crichton's story, the softly flowing story, the Dinos and ILM. I suspect most of the kids at some point were interested in dinos and Jurassic Park, for the first time, delivered real looking and moving dinos.

    I expect the game to be a mix of an adventure and an action game which sometimes can will be frightening as well. I also expect it to be a good game but somehow i also again also don't expect it to a amazing or radical different game. You know just no Rage, no Bioshock, no Half Life, no The Dig, no Broken Sword, no Machinarium.

    Entertaining but just not brilliant and to this a Jurassic Park scenario fits quite well. Personally i would prefer puzzling myself through some more serious spaceship/planet instead with interesting characters/situations but that's nothing new i guess... :O)
