It's time, The ultimate Jurassic Park game.

Recommended Posts

Ok so I originally was going to post this on the Gamespot forums... Then I thought "Why?" So it's here. As you may or may not know there's another Jurassic Park movie in the works. Personally, Growing up I fell in Love with the first movie. Hardcore. It was the coolest movie in the world and no one could tell me otherwise. I think I probably had every game minus the super nintendo one. My favorites were the SegaCD 1st person one, Sony Playstation one and the PC one Tresspasser. Sadly I believe the last JP game to be released was the PC version Operation Genesis. That was like 2000 I believe? Now, honestly in my opinion... Because of technology at the time... We got gypped on JP games. Tresspasser was ahead of its time, and failed miserably because of it. All of the games in fact were limited to the platforms and their capabilities. But now I think is a perfect opportunity for the ultimate game. Ok stop laughing. What I mean is, go play crysis. Now go play a NES title. Big difference right? One thing that I've felt has been missing in the video game portion of Jurassic Park is going back to the original island. The SegaCD game did this. It was awesome, I can remember renting segaCD every weekend just to play that game. Now, imagine a JP FPS using the Crytek2 engine or Frostbite engine. This game needs to be massive, a whole Island to explore. Lots of vehicles, atv's, jeeps, explorers etc.. It should recreate the whole Island with all structures from the original movie as well as some from the book. I didnt read the book *completely* but I do remember an interesting cement walled river and a massive vehicle garage. I mean the possibilities are endless. But it should encorporate things from the book and the movie to give it more depth. Multiplayer would be awesome with the option to be a dino and a human. If someone does this the right way, it should have cutting edge graphics, stay true to the book/movie and have awesome gameplay. It would be nice if you started out before the everything went awry. Giving you a chance to explore the island in all its glory, take the dino tour in the explorer.. explore the buildings etc.. then after a while Nedry shuts down the security and things go crazy. And you play through the island for your survival. Characters: Well I dunno I was thinking maybe a choice of who you want to be. Like some of the main characters or maybe someone random like a employee left behind by accident. This game would need an original sound track, the JP soundtrack would be great. Voice actors *could* be from the original movie but doesnt *have* to be absolute. I think it would be interesting to observe things happening from outside of the movies perspective, you don't necesarrily need to come in contact with the characters of the movie per say. Example: you are just walking around the island and you see Nedry fly by in his jeep as he's escaping the island for the ship to take him back to the main land. Stuff like that, simple right? Finally the Dinosaurs!! They will make or break the game. They have to be superb, fluid and smart! I'm not worried about this though. The aliens in Lost Planet and Crysis did a fine job in moving about. So anyway, I do think we need another JP game. Not just a game, but the ultimate Jurassic Park game that all the others were trying to be but failed at. We now have the capabilities both platform/PC alike. What do you think?

Personally, I enjoyed Trespasser alot, overlooking the horrible jumps and twisting your arm out of proportion.
The lethal-ness of the raptors (their abillity to kill you in about 15 seconds), and how they'd circle around whatever you were standing on was particularly memorable.

I've thought of remaking trespasser with the Halflife 2 engine, but haven't got the skills.(That, and am busy with other projects)

I'm pretty glad they are making another Turok though, and excited that it actually... looks fun.
