    JP: OG is a decently made simulation game. The gamplay itself is enjoyable; you build your own version of Jurassic park and maintain it, which is always a challenge. However, after a while the gameplay can get repetitive and tedious. Certain elements of the game, such as twisters and other weather aspects can wreck your progress. The game will nonetheless appeal to both avid parkJP: OG is a decently made simulation game.

    Fun game. Lets you design lots of interesting and cool attractions for guests and the way they react is somewhat realistic. The only problem is at some point during every level after you excavated every area you could you run out of different dinosaurs you are able to build and guests get bored of the old dinosaurs. Pretty much from the start, your part will inevitably fail.

    Genesis' gameplay would really benefit from more depth: once you get the basic structures in place and the cash starts to roll in, there's little challenge left. [Apr 2003, p.104]
  2. Takes the theme park genre and injects it with a little dino-fever. The end result is surprisingly entertaining!

    Jurassic has enough open-ended depth to appease "RollerCoaster Tycoon" players, fossil hunters, and anyone looking to bag some big game. [2 May 2003, p.79]
