"Another obscure SNES title that deserves a second look...or perhaps a first."
I was expecting your typical 2D side-scrolling fare, not the case though. The game play is actually quite innovative, combining two very different styles into one interesting little action/adventure/shooter hybrid. While you're outside exploring the park the game play is set in the form of an overhead perspective (ala Legend of Zelda) where you can jump, climb stairs, etc. However, once you enter a building the game switches to a 1st person shooter perspective (Doom, Duke Nukem). Both environments offer their own unique challenges to the gamer.
In the game you play as Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neil's character) a paleontologist who has found himself trapped on the island of Isla Nublar (Jurassic Park) after the failure of the island's security system has allowed its prehistoric inhabitants to run wild. True to the film, the main objective in JP is to escape the island via a helicopter. To do this however, you're first required to complete a series of objectives ranging from rebooting the island's power to destroying raptor breeding sites. Although you must accomplish all of the pre-assigned tasks, you're given a lot of freedom in what sequence you actually complete them. For example you can and should start collecting raptor eggs and ID cards right from the get go. Most of these objectives come straight out of the movie (ex: turning on the generator, rebooting the computer) while others are absent from the movie but present in the novel (ex: destroying the raptor nests). All in all it's a pretty faithful rendition.
Score: 3 out of 10
Jurassic Park is a rare game that is a well known but should be tried and that is getting much harder to find anymore. I do have a copy on my web site.
