Adventures in Jurassic Park, part 12.
Weirdly I can't seem to pick up this health kit, I guess I need to run out of armour before I even need extra health. I'm actually pushing it across the ground, which is pretty unusual. Enemies can push pick ups around too.
Jurassic Park on the Amiga, or collect 5 of them to get the exit door open like in Jurassic Park 2 on the Game Boy. But no, it wasn't an id card, it was a map of the area for my awesome watch.
It's almost as if this game is trying to make me like it, instead of punishing me for playing. It's a bizarre concept for a Jurassic Park game, but I'll keep playing and see where it's going with it.
Hey look, there's a guy over there and it looks like he's fighting with a dinosaur. I can't be certain though because when I got closer they both immediately ran to kill me instead, but it'd be cool if it actually was the case. It'd make a nice change from being the only target for every other creature on screen.
Apparently this place has lava caves just like Isla Nublar, complete with steam venting out that I have to dodge. And stupid dinosaurs hiding in them.
Also, velociraptors are a bitch to kill in this too. I'm trying to circle around them, throwing grenades in their direction, or shooting them with darts, but I have to be pointing directly AT them to hit them. And in a head on confrontation, Alan Grant isn't going to be the one walking away.
Well screw replaying all that. Next game!
I can't complain though really. Gameplay-wise this guy seems to be more like a keycard I've collected than a character to babysit and protect. I'm just getting tired of his bitching.
I think I'm going to stop playing here. To be honest I think I've probably made the game look better than it is. Actually fighting the dinosaurs isn't that great, and when the core gameplay in a game isn't much fun, then that game has problems.
But this gets so many things right that I can't honestly say that it's a crap game. So it gets the star.
