Jurassic Park: The Game is a cinematic adventure that takes players back to Isla Nublar – the site of Jurassic Park – during the events of the first movie. It allows them to experience Jurassic Park as they never have before – in an interactive format. In addition to locations and creatures familiar to fans of the movie, the game offers new areas to explore and new prehistoric beasts to survive in a game that combines fast-paced action, exploration and puzzle-solving.
