Jurassic Park SNES was cool, but no save function made it fucking impossible. Even had some Wolfenstein-clone segments.

The Lost World on PS1 was good, graphics were pretty impressive for the time.

Trespasser, my first PC game. So many memories from that glitchy and genious game. Need a remake ASAP.

Warpath, one of those games I played the most on PS1 and only later realized it was a horrible fighting game.

Operation Genesis was mindblowing, but just like Warpath it was a pretty bad park-sim.

Jurassic Park by Telltale was… well it was a Telltale game. Pretty cool to get a Jurassic Park-”sequel”, too bad it was so underwhelming.

Evolution was good, can’t wait for the sequel. Gonna play it on PS5, hopefully the visuals will be good.

Man, I played it on amiga (the 1993 game) and since I knew about Wolf3D, how great this game is, but I didn't have PC, this was my only chance to play FPS game. And man was it great fun.

I had the Game Boy one. Pretty bad with difficulty / controls / collisions etc, yet I managed to beat it. It’s one of those mediocre games that you’d trash immediately today, but you’d somehow end up quite liking after spending so much time on it. I replayed it on the NES not a long time ago. I did use some savestates and it’s not a good game, but it’s not complete trash. Those stampede and T-Rex sections are just stupid, though.

I was always interested in the SNES game, but I read that it had no save function at all and it was a long-ass game.

I also played The Lost World on the PS1. What a turd. One of those impossibly hard games where no matter how hard you try, it’s practically impossible to avoid taking damage.

Two amazing JP games missing:

- The Lost World: Jurassic Park Arcade

- Lego: Jurassic World

The latter is probably my favorite of them all.. Just a dream for a fan in terms of content, super fun and really good looking. Sure it's still Lego, but no "real" game from this IP could come close to its amount of content.

Evolution was good, can’t wait for the sequel. Gonna play it on PS5, hopefully the visuals will be good.
Evolution 2 looks promising. As i mostly care for the first movie Chaos Theory Mode in particular as it will likely unlock JP things to use in Sandbox. Visuals are a bit underwelming though, their LOD especially is still super noticeable even though justified by the nature of these games systems. PS5 version looks severely compromised compared to the PC at the moment:


The first one was also considerably better on PC, however that happened much later down the Consoles life cycle and not to this extent regardless. The game still managed to look amazing on Consoles though:
























So i was hoping for a truly stunning Next-Gen-PC sequel.

Edit---

They just released this:



Pack hunting is finally in the game!

I remember renting it on Genesis. There were two JP games. I dont remember which one I got but it was the one where the first level is a forest and you can ride a raft down some streams.

I thought it was garbage.
