Man vs. beast. Who do you think will win?

Last week I had the chance to play part of Telltale’s upcoming Jurassic Park game. Check out my hands-on impressions at Adventure Gamers.

I’m really not a Jurassic Park fan—I only saw the first movie, once, back when it was in theaters—but I’m loving the departure from Telltale’s previous games, from a cinematic standpoint. They’ve been comparing it to Heavy Rain (which I tragically haven’t played, due to a lack of a PlayStation 3) and from what I’ve seen so far, I think it’s a great way to tell this type of story. It’s enough like an adventure game while still as action-packed as you’d expect a Jurassic Park movie to be. As for the Quick Time Events, I don’t mind them, but that’s not really what makes it fun for me (and I expect they aren’t the aspect of Heavy Rain that I’d most enjoy, either).

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go refill my coffee cup by frequently tapping the X button until the liquid reaches the brim…
