Dinosaurs are always a hit with kids and adults, too. So when the first Jurassic Park movie came out, the response was overwhelming. The next logical thing to do? Create a game out of it. But we know games tied into movies are always usually trash. Well, this game for the Sega Genesis seems to be one of those exceptions.
Overall, Jurassic Park video game is funny to play. Although there may not be too many levels, they have decent lengths and should keep you busy for hours. Except for a very few, you should be able to beat the enemies without breaking a sweat, or a thumb.
There are two ways to play Jurassic Park on the Genesis. One as Grant, and the other as a velociraptor. Obviously, Grant’s game is more difficult as you are the prey. The levels are noticeably harder and longer and there seems to be an unlimited supply of dinosaurs to kill. Actually you can’t even kill them. They just get stunned and would get up and try to eat you again. You’ll need good reflex and a sound brain to solve some puzzles to get you out of harm’s way.
Who doesn’t want to play as a raptor? And Jurassic Park will let you do that. If only the levels can be longer and more challenging, then this game would have been perfect. You kill soldiers and hunt Grant before he gets away from the island. Simple and sweet.
The graphics department did a good job on this one. Visuals are great and clear – the power station, the jungle, and the visitors’ center. They’re all drawn beautifully. Grant is recognizable, but not that detailed. Blame it on Sega Genesis’ limitations.
Unfortunately, sound effects and music for the game are not that great. The music is OK, but not something to write home about. Sound effects are clear but sometimes weird.
Jurassic Park for the Sega Genesis may not be as successful as its widescreen counterpart, but it’s worth the hours and sweat you’ll spend playing it.
