Ahhh the good old days. Watching stuff about Dinosaurs while playing JP:OG. Those were the days. Now lets experience them again.

A little brief info on JP:OG:
[quote]Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis (known colloquially as JP:OG or JPOG) is a construction and management simulation video game for the PC, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 based on the novel and film series Jurassic Park. The main point of the game is to recreate Jurassic Park - building a 5 star theme park with dinosaurs, and turning John Hammond's dream into reality. In the park, the player builds paths, amenities for visitors such as, food and restrooms, as well as enclosures and attractions. One must also keep the park safe and secure. The park can be populated with up to sixty dinosaurs, with twenty-five different species available. The player can also add attractions similar to those seen in the film, such as the safari seen in the Jurassic Park film, and additional attractions like a balloon tour and several varieties of viewing platform.[/quote]

And now... Lets begin.

    How much more? I'm thinking about about buying it.

    Just revert the money change if you don't want to build all over the island in few moments.

    For the most part, the Xbox version is identical to the PC version (aside from screen resolution), though the PC version allows you to easily mod it.

    I've played each version, and these are the differences I've noticed:
    PS2--only 3 dig sites, lower resolution, low quality water (no reflections), frequent loading (slight but noticeable delays), some other differences that I can't remember at this time (possibly lower population caps than other versions?)
    Xbox--5 dig sites, better resolution than PS2 (lower than potential of PC), water reflections, loading is done at the beginning and not during gameplay (for the most part), perhaps some other differences... [additional note: 360 emulation causes some hang-ups, lag, and other issues]
    PC--5 dig sites, adjustable resolution, very quick loading at the beginning, and of course: the ability to modify the game

    If you're considering purchasing the game (and have a good PC) I'd definitely recommend the PC version as it is the most flexible. If you have a newer PC (Vista/7) you'll have to play with it a bit to get it to work, though it DOES run on 7. The added ability to mod gives you the option to install the "Film Canon Mod" which does an amazing job of recreating the appearance and sound of the dinosaurs in the film as well as adding additional functionality such as a longer Land-Cruiser path (like in the film), larger population cap (no more 60 dinosaur limit), longer dinosaur lifespan, all dig sites unlocked, and even gives you unrestricted access to Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna!

    Thanks now im def going to get it.

  • @anadseta said: Thanks now im def going to get it.

    Yes but remember you don't necessarily have to purchase it . After losing my original copy i was able to aquire the game for free by using other methods...but hey you didnt hear it from me. ;)

  • Ok I found a JPOG in my price range but it says white label. What does white label mean?

  • Although the PC one is the better of the group I'm going to be getting the XBOX one. I'm just not big on PC gaming and I'm not even sure if it would work on my computer. Plus, if you dont get it from "other means" the PC verson can get expensive.

    I have the PS2 one right now but I want more dinosaurs in my park and not just 3 dig sites.

  • @anadseta said: Ok I found a JPOG in my price range but it says white label. What does white label mean?

    A white label product is a product produced by one company (the producer) that other companies (the marketers) rebrand to make it appear as if they made it.
