Yeah, its funny. The more I look back, the more the nostalgia-dust settles, the more I see how bad that game was and how unsatisfied and dissappointed I am. The story and atmosphere was really good, but this is just not how you adapt a movie into a videogame. Its just a lazy and uninspired approach.
I really only remember watching an animated movie, I never had a feeling I was "doing something", totally unlike the memories I got from other videogames.
I wouldnt care if it would be some experimental approach with a new IP, but it kinda annoys me that a game company makes a game about one of my favourite movies, the possibilities waving in front of my eyes, and what do they come up with? To be honest I suspected it the day I heard it would come from telltale, but I WANTED to like it. I needed to force myself to look over all the glaring flaws I would never forgive if this wouldnt be Jurassic Park, like most of all fans who played this game I guess. But you know what? Fuck that! I guess we will still have to wait for a proper Jurassic Park videogame
I think the Jurassic Park franchise was simply too big for telltale, end of story!
You just cannot make a game off of a blockbuster IP which always stood for cutting edge special effects and adventure and excitement and turn it into a barely interactive, technologically extremely outdated animated movie with some button prompts, remove all exploration and immersion, and expect people to love it!
I know about budget problems, but if you dont have enough money to pay the movie justice, then just leave it.
And look what went wrong:
- the unauthentic T-Rex roar in the first trailer, which should be supposed to make people excited, but instead irritated them
- the massive delay on the very last minute, and still cutting an episode, still buggy
- the intelligent telltale employees faking metacritic scores
- the too slow reaction to the "jeep-affair"
Are these professionals or what?
I really hope they learned their lesson and do a better job on the Walking Dead, so that at least WD-fans wont be screwed!
