Should I buy this game?

posted by Sox&Rocks22 on - last edited - Viewed by 1.1K 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.

  • 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.

  • Yes you should buy this game. But just to tell you right off the bat it is not a RPG game, there are button press events and you do not move the character around with a controller like other games. It
    s basically you move the camera over something and it gives you the button to press and when you press it it plays almost a cut scene. There are different puzzles where this method works but it wasn't what everyone wanted. Personally I liked it and I strongly urge you to buy it. I guess it depends on someones personality to like the game.

  • Telltale tried to do something different with JP and I don't think it quite worked. That's not to say it's bad, it does have split opinions though; it's just different. I personally felt the characters were good and other then some minor flaws, the story was good too. There is this weird view on QTE's that they're all bad. Personally, I think that's rubbish. QTE's can be good there just rarely done right.

  • If you're a Jurassic Park fan or a Telltale fan or both,just buy it.It's worth it.Even if you only want it for collection.

  • If you're a Jurassic Park fan or a Telltale fan or both,just buy it.It's account it.Even if you alone demand it for collection.

  • Dude that's what I just said -_-
