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.
