Aug 16, 2012Everyone had seen Jurassic Park, but not everyone knew about Trespasser. Probably because PC gaming wasn't too popular in 1998, which is very unfortunate for this product. The game takes you through an interactive version of Jurassic Park situated on Site B(the island where the dinosaurs were raised.) It's a long journey, full of atmosphere, as there are weathered buildings, half completed or just in disrepair, and broken machines along the way. The game even has its own voice over for the character of John Hammond, whom paints the player a picture of what the island was like when it was operational, since it's now abandoned.
I first played it when it was eight I think, but I only figured out how to play it properly when I tried it again at age 20. It is old, but it has decent physics, is moderately challenging, and is a beautifully crafted world, with amazing animal AI for the time, and to top it off the voice work of Richard Attenborough. You start off stranded and unarmed, shooting your way from one end of the island to the other. There's so much to take in along the way, that before you know you're playing a game and not experiencing a work of art, it's already over. I was entertained all the way though, and never played it for the sake of just trying to complete it. Not only is it brilliant, it's the definition of a "hidden gem." I'm glad I was one of the seemingly few that got to play it.… Expand
