A fun overhead action game based on best-selling book and film, OCEAN's Jurassic Park is based on the hit movie of the same name that, in turn, was adapted from Michael Crichton's best-selling novel.

The game starts off when the action begins to heat up, i.e. after the dinosaurs are loose. As none other than Dr. Alan Grant, world-renown paleontologist, your goal is to find Tim and Lex, two kids who are lost on the Jurassic Park island which has been overrun by hungry carnivores. In the process, you must fight off scores of dinosaurs and destroy their eggs to stop the breeding. You start off with a powerful gun that shoots electric rays that can kill pesky Triceratops in a few shots, but is almost useless against their meaner cousins, such as the Brachiosaurus. Fortunately, you will soon come across more powerful weapons, different types of ammos, and even time bombs that are used for blowing up Raptor nests.

Although the game has only 6 levels, they increase both in difficulty and length, making the game a good match for joystick experts who scoff at easy games. There are also some puzzle elements within the game, such as accessing the computers to open electrified gates, or figuring out how to kill the gigantic Tyrannosaurus Rex. Two players can also play together, and each level helps advance the game's (and movie's) plot. Overall, Jurassic Park is a highly enjoyable game for veterans, although it might frustrate beginners. Too bad OCEAN's later Last Action Hero, which was based on the same engine, isn't nearly as fun as this underdog.
