Playing through this game is like playing through some of the 8 and 16-bit Batman games. Take out the lead character and plotline, and you could easily insert a generic character into the lead role and the game still works. The license is only there to sell more copies. The game still plays well enough that some of the missing movie items won't bother most people, but it could have easily been enhanced if it followed the movies storyline. Otherwise, the game shows off some great sights and plays like a lighter version of Resident Evil, definitely enough to keep most people playing until they reach the coast.
Jurassic Park 3 : Dino Attack parviendra à convaincre les amateurs de survival horror grâce notamment à son gameplay intelligent et ses phases de jeu variées. Le soft souffre quand-même d'un niveau de difficulté assez frustrant et d'une durée de vie un peu courte.

The most impressive thing about Island Attack is the animation of the large dinosaurs and of Grant as well. The subtitle is a slight misnomer though. Those looking for an action game will be dealt with a conservationist's idea of an action game, where the most effective weapon in Grants' arsenal tranquilizes a dinosaur, and only then, momentarily. Unfortunately, like the movie itself, Island Attack overstays its welcome for far too long. There have been decent gaming titles coming from awful movie franchises but while Jurassic Park III was not deep in any sense, it at least had a sense of fun for the first hour. Grant's further adventures in Island Attack are anything but exciting. The movie had a tired sense after a mere ninety minute running time. Island Attack does not fare much better.
Jurassic Park was a groundbreaking movie when it was released in 1993. Two sequels later, the movies still have jaw-dropping special effects. Game developers have tried to capitalize on the original and its sequels. The Game Boy Advance has three games born from this movie series: Park Builder, DNA Factor and Island Attack. Jurassic Park III: Island Attack could have taken a tip from its sister game, DNA Factor, and produced better graphics and gameplay. Island Attack sticks to the movie storyline but falls short in game control and graphics. As mentioned, placing this game on any of the latest consoles would improve the game by leaps and bounds overall. As it stands now, Jurassic Park III: Island Attack by Konami missed the rescue boat and could well be destined for extinction.
The graphics in Island Attack are also disappointing as heavy pixelization and mute colors actually end up affecting gameplay. The tiny screen and fixed camera do not serve this game well in the visual department either. The textures are very blurry and quite often key objects will blend in with the background making it even more tedious to play this game. Fortunately, the sound is not a horror story as the in-game music is actually decent. The sound effects aren’t that hot, but there’s not much to expect from barrel explosions and screeching dinosaurs out of the GBA’s one speaker when compared to a surround sound movie.
