Finally I got to play this game. It probably doesnt matter anymore, but heres my impression:
I was very pleased with the writing, story was compelling and the characters believable and it really was Jurassic Park. There were very intense and well made moments and the parts I thought would be too silly (like the bone shaker) werent that bad in the moment of playing, even though I still would have liked it a bit different afterwards.
The graphics were decent, of course they could have been better (and maybe should have been) but I guess its simply not possible within the given budget and stuff.
There were sound and graphic glitches, some of them really annoying and able to destroy the moment when the player cannot look past them (repeating dialogue in the otherwise very beautiful second scene on the lookout, rough music transitions, unhearable speaking voice etc) , but nothing serious like crashes or something.
The gameplay is like everyone says. Not really entertaining and sometimes even distracting and anti-immersive. I remember the scene where you have to sneak up to the T-Rex, I wanted to look at what happens on screen, how cool it looks to have the Rex in the background and yourself sneaking up, or the other scenes where the dinosaur gets closer and closer. But I was forced to look at the prompts to see what and when to push, wich I'm not interested in at all. It forces me to focus on things I'm not interested in and pulls me out of the moment. Something easier and more intuitive like having to move the right stick slowly left and right would be much more appropriate. But generally I think this whole QTE concept does that (pulling you out of the immersion) when you have too much and unlogic prompts, less and more forgiving would be better.
Otherwise I would have liked more moments of awe and wonder and more use of the main music theme of the movie. But in the end I definetly enjoyed the game and as a JP-Fan I'm very pleased. You just have to tackle it with the right mindset. This game is at least better than the two movie sequels together.
