Yep, it's an above average game, as all the 7's show, but not by any means perfect.

Jurrasic Park losely follows the movie of the same name. You play the fossil bloke trying to save the park, but they've left out the pesky kids, the tasty lady, and the old geezer so you can just get on with blasting some dinos to high heaven.

A mixture of top down adventuring and Doom style shooting, JP is ...ok.
I quite liked this game when I played it on the SNES, but today, although the outside adventuring is fine, the indoor bits are messed up.

Basically you have to complete various tasks as told to you by people from the film.You must secure the park, find keys to get around the park ,as you try to contact the outside world, so you can get your ass out of there.

Yeah it's quite daft really, but hey, I liked it. You do most of your exploring outside using the top down view, but when you enter a building it changes to a 1st person perspective, doom style. I liked that bit. It was atmospheric at the time, but now its quite jerky and frustrating as youe bloke takes a year and a half to turn round.

Well, the bottom line is that if you can bear that, its an ok game, but there are better games on the SNES than this anyway, so go find something else.
