Terwijl Ocean voor alle Nintendo systemen hetzelfde Jurassic Park spel uitbracht, maakte Sega zijn eigen variant voor de Megadrive. Wat bleek? Het was veel beter dan de anderen. Onder andere de graphics en de moeilijkheidsgraad zorgden hiervoor.
All Game Guide
This is certainly a game that no fan of the movie and/or book should do without. It's the type of game that -- even though it is the product of movie merchandising -- is fabulous on its own. A rare find indeed.
Sega Force
Grafiken är utmärkt! Tyvärr tycker jag att människan, doktor Grant, känns onödigt stel, men alla ödlorna är fantastiska! Bra kombination av "quest" och "shoot 'em up". Du klarar dig inte speciellt långt om du bara använder råstyrka, de små grå får sig allt en ordentlig omgång de också! Gillar du roliga spel - köp Jurassic Park! Gillar du dinosaurier - köp Jurassic Park! En blivande klassiker!
Entertainment Weekly
But the Genesis version (Sega), which lets you assume the role of a raptor, is a blast.
Quebec Gamers
Jurassic Park est un excellent jeu tiré du film de Spielberg qui mêle bien action et survie, tout en respectant assez bien l'ambiance du film par ses environnements et ses dinosaures bien recréés.
Just Games Retro
The Jurassic Park craze has undeniably wound down by now, so this will just be another platform game to modern audiences. Still, the elements that made the movie great do carry over into the game - the sense of adventure, the fear of trying to bypass giant, deadly lizards - and it even manages to create some its own with the just-plain-fun Raptor levels. Not a bad choice if you want a platform adventure, with love of dinosaurs not required.
Game Players
In the huge sea of JP paraphernalia, this one stands out if for no other reason than it lets you rip into Dr. Grant as the raptor. Hey - sometimes, it's enough.
Mega Fun
Glücklicherweise legte sich Sega bei diesem Modul ordentlich ins Zeug, was man bei Spielen zum Film ja nicht gerade gewöhnt ist. Dabei fallen zunächst die aufwendig digitalisierten Saurier auf, die durch eine Vielzahl von Animationsphasen erstaunlich realistisch wirken. Beim Sound war Realismus ebenfalls Trumpf, und so gibt es spärliche Rhythmen sowie viele gute Tiergeräusche zu hören. Auch spielerisch weiß JP zu gefallen; zwar ist der Spielablauf nicht immer ganz klar und fair, doch für Unermüdliche dürfte gerade das ein Anreiz sein. Anfänger sollten sich sowieso erstmal mit dem Saurier anfreunden, da hier die Levels leichter zu lösen sind. Allerdings kommt mit Dr. Kent, nicht zuletzt dank der zwei zusätzlichen Levels, eindeutig mehr Freude auf. Summa summarum bietet JP viel Grafik und Spielspaß fürs Geld.
In any case, while you won't play this game for more than a week or two, it's still a solid, fun diversion. Little tykes will love this game just for the dinos, but the rest of us can still manage to eke out a few hours of good fun.
Peccato per una licenza in buona parte sprecata. Un gioco discreto ma un po’ insipido, che sarebbe passato totalmente inosservato se non avesse portato quel nome che gli fruttò ai tempi ottime vendite. Chiudendo un occhio su alcuni difetti riesce comunque ad essere abbastanza godibile.
High Score
Jurassic Park är ett tämligen ordinärt plattformsspel, som i jämförelse med filmens fantastiska specialeffekter kanske ter sig lite blekt. Det är dock inte helt utan förtjänster. De sju nivåerna är varierade och rätt så knepiga, och de tre svårighetsgraderna gör att man inte klarar av det här i första taget. Spelet kommer att sälja i massor bara på namnet, och det ger i alla fall hyfsad valuta för pengarna.
The Video Game Critic
Although the environments appear slightly grainy, they are very detailed and interesting to explore. It's also fun to shoot and toss grenades at dinosaurs, and the tension is palpable as you duck into a vent to avoid oncoming raptors. The game also includes some stages not in the movie, like an innovative rafting level where you navigate a dinosaur-infested river. Although it can be frustrating to play as Dr. Grant, assuming the role of the raptor is much easier. It's also a good way to take out your aggression as you maul helpless security guards and gobble up smaller dinosaurs. Jurassic Park certainly has its share of technical issues, but still manages to be a fair video game adaptation of the film.
