I enjoyed my playtime with JURASSIC PARK III: PARK BUILDER. It's a pretty cool take on the genre and the dinosaur element made things a little hairy at times. This game will accompany me on many more vacations and long plane flights.

Au départ, vous ne disposez pas d’ADN et devez donc envoyer une équipe de recherche sur un continent de votre choix pour une durée donnée. Ce ne sont pas moins de 140 espèces de dinosaures qui peuvent être recréées par ce biais. Que ce soit ce challenge ou les cinq niveaux de difficulté disponibles, Park Builder risque de vous scotcher à l’écran pour de longues heures. À l’instar d’un Pokémon, il est possible d’échanger des dinos par le biais du câble link. Au final, difficile de reprocher quoi que ce soit à ce titre si ce n’est l’absence de tutorial !

If you like simulation games, this is worth playing. It is tough on the small screen, though, especially if you are used to playing simulation games on the PC, and the controls are quite complicated. It is almost guaranteed you will not keep the first park or two you design. As you play, you will find things that work for you and things that do not work so well. If you have never played a simulation game, this is not the game to start with. The controls are spread out and the manipulation of the elements is a bit tricky. I liked the game but I do not know if it will appeal to anyone except the serious simulation game player. I think it is a bit hard until you get the hang of things and that is why I gave it a score of 77.

Jurassic Park III: Park Builder ist eines dieser ominösen „Wenn-und-Aber“-Spiele. Eigentlich stimmt alles. Ein geradezu unerwarteter Tiefgang mit vielen Optionsmöglichkeiten lässt einen die durchschnittliche Grafik und den nicht minder durchschnittlichen Sound schnell vergessen. Nur wieso gibt es kein Tutorial, das Anfängern die Funktionen näher bringt? Genre-Neulinge werden das Spiel als weitestgehend unzugänglich ins Regal stellen. Selbst Kenner von Spielen dieser Art haben anfangs große Probleme, da auch das Handbuch nicht gerade eine Informationsquelle darstellt. Schade eigentlich, denn JP3: Park Builder hat alles, was man sich wünscht - nur hinter einer ganz schön komplizierten Fassade versteckt.

Overall, I liked Jurassic Park 3: Park Builder, and besides the few issues I've talked about, the only thing that kept me from really liking it was the system it was on. This game just feels way to big for the GBA, which results in some limitations and additions that would have made the game much better - such as placing rides in the parks.

Es ist schon befriedigend, nach etlichen Stunden Arbeit seinen florierenden Park zu begutachten und sich daran zu erfreuen, wie Geld in die Kasse wandert. Als Bonus darfst du gefundene DNS noch per Link-Kabel tauschen. Leider gibt es kein Tutorial! Park Builder ist also weniger was für zwischendurch, sondern ein richtiger Zeitfresser. Wer damit auf einem Handheld keine Probleme hat, darf zugreifen.

IGN (Sep 27, 2001)
was annoyed at the game from the very beginning, due to the fact that I had literally no clue what to do. You see, I'm not one to flip through the manual unless it's absolutely necessary, and in the case of Park Builder, I needed to glance at it more than a few times. The game design really needs a tutorial, since it is very complex with many, many elements to learn...that's Park Builder biggest flaw. But once over that wall, there's a lot to uncover in the game, and designing and managing your own park is a lot of fun. I found myself checking up on my happy patrons so I can get a warm fuzzy seeing how much they like my creation.

Contrairement aux autres adaptations de Jurassic Park sur GBA, ce titre met en valeur le côté « Monsieur ADN » du film en proposant un soft de gestion plutôt classique mais néanmoins accessible à tous. L'idée est aussi originale qu'efficace, d'autant que ce titre résout le problème de l'absence de jeux de gestion sur Gameboy Advance.

Jurassic Park III Park Builder is one of those obscure games which is on shop shelves for a week and then descends into the supermarket bargain bins for eternity. Why did I buy it? It looked like Theme Park with dinosaurs. Who wouldn't?

Remember that theme park in Jurassic Park: The Lost World (the bit in the city where the T-Rex manages to break out and roam the streets, eating various cars, dogs and people in the process)? Well your job is to construct, manage and make a profit out of one of those. No easy task, especially considering the amount of extra insurance you'll have to take out against canine and automobile related accidents.

Once you get the hand of it Park Builder is a pretty intriguing title that packs a surprising amount of content.
