Summary

Very Creepy and lots of Fun!

The Good

I like that you had a specific mission, and it wasn't simply a shoot 'em up. You had to do some tasks to win. Other than that, I LOVED how it gave me a chill up my spine. This was the first game I had ever experienced that creepy chill! When you're up close at one of the terminals and you hear a low growl you swear the raptor is right behind you! Or when you open one of the swinging doors to be met by a snarling spitting monster, and you JUST barely back out of the door! SPOOKY stuff! It was also fun to have both the FPS and the side scrolling game between buildings. It gave you a nice change of pace! That was creepy too, as the T-Rex could be ANYWHERE!!

The Bad

Not much to dislike. It was what it was at the time, and of course by today's standards of graphics, gameplay, story etc. it pales. But to be fair, for it's time it was great! It was a bit annoying trying to save your progress, you had to make it to specific areas to save and if you waited too long, you ran the risk of losing all your progress. You should have been able to save anytime. I think they should have had you go through more buildings. It did seem a tad too short.

The Bottom Line

Oh, by all means. It is a decent game and still packs a punch. You'll get pulled in and be freaked out for sure. Keep an eye looking over your shoulder!!! hehehe A keeper!
