Sony PSN Logo Jurassic Park: The Game is an episodic, downloadable video game developed by Telltale Games. It takes players back to Isla Nublar – the site of Jurassic Park – during and immediately after the events of the first film. Dennis Nedry’s lost Barbasol shaving-cream can and the embryos contained within once again become a major plot point as brand new characters and existing secondary ones struggle to escape the infamous dinosaur-infested island. Although the PC version (digital download) was released on the 15th of November 2011 along with the US PlayStation 3 version, the EU PlayStation 3 version (available now via the PlayStation Network) wasn’t released until mid-December 2011.

Jurassic Park Poster

Jurassic Park is an Academy Award-winning science fiction adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg, based upon the novel of the same name by Michael Crichton. Released during the summer of 1993, the film went on to gross over $900 million worldwide, becoming the top-grossing film of all time (not to be surpassed until 1997 by James Cameron’s Titanic). A Blu-ray release of the Jurassic Park Trilogy is scheduled for the 24th October 2011 in the UK. In anticipation of this, Universal Pictures have decided to re-release a brand new digital print of Jurassic Park in UK cinemas on the 23rd September 2011. 65 million years in the making… Jurassic Park is finally back on the big screen where it belongs!
