It's only the user scores that are really low, and they are that low because a lot of people who never played the game were voting 0% just because a few Telltale employees voted 100%. Shill voting is never a fair judge of a game's quality.
The score is 55, and we all know that pretty much most reviews only use 50 till 95, except in really extreme cases. So 55 is pretty bad.
Also, whats that arcade game saying anything about the popularity about QTEs? They maybe played it because of nostalgia reasons, maybe they liked it because of the cartoon style? And a few people waiting in line is nothing compared to the game market in general!
Also this is not just some random QTE game, this is supposed to be a proper adaptation of the Jurassic Park license, which comes with its own expectations and must haves, which this game certainly didnt match. Wheres the excitement and suspense in random button smashing? Wheres the exploration? Awe and wonder with ancient graphics? Definetly not.
Fine for you when you belong to the few people who honestly werent dissappointed, but this game simply was a failure, thats for sure. I honestly cant imagine that this game sold very well. The fact that in germany the retail-release for XBox360 was canceled and that telltale doesnt provide a DVD for regular purchases which is unusual so far pretty much confirms that!
