As a huge Jurassic Park fan, I only need to hear about three notes of the theme song before I instinctively get… Well, probably more excited than a nearly-30-year-old should get over dinosaurs. We've heard more than a few rumblings of Telltale's plans to release the Jurassic Park-themed adventure game on the App Store, and it's finally here along with a brand new trailer that goes over all of its iPad 2 exclusiveness.

Jurassic Park: The Game 1 HD [$6.99] (say that three times fast) is the first installment in the series, and takes place during the events of the second half of the first Jurassic Park movie. I've always thought the Jurassic Park universe was fantastic, and am beyond stoked that I'll be able to delve into a new adventure on my iPad 2. It's unfortunate that Telltale has dropped iPad support, but if you've played any of their recent games on the device it'll be more than clear why they did it.

We'll have a review for the game as soon as we can sit down and spend some time with it, but in the meantime, if you don't feel like waiting feel free to mash the download link below.

    I was overwhelmed by the power of the iPad 2; but I made a mistake, too. I didn't have enough respect for that power and it's out now.

      These dev's were so preoccupied with whether they could bring this game to the iPad 2 that they didn't stop to think if they should.

    Awesome. Finally a 3D Telltale game not as hampered down so it would work on the clunky old iPad 1. Definitely getting this one, graphics look awesome

    No 4s version coming??

    Game is very short. Beat in about an hour. Not worth 6.99

    Here's my condensed review: Do not buy this.

    The first half, I liked it. By the time I got to the second half my fingerprints had rubbed off my fingers from doing all the quick button events and I was already tired of the formula.  It's not really like any adventure game Telltale has ever released before, it's essentially Dragons Lair.
    I don't think it's worth 6.99 at all. I won't be buying the rest of them for sure. I'll watch them on youtube instead, seeing as it's mostly a movie anyway.

    One thing that's great though is when you fail you die HORRIBLE DEATHS! Oddly satisfying and horrifying all at once.

    I was disappointed when I heard that they left out the original ipad as that's the one I still use and I'm also a TT fan, but based on the comments I've been seeing about this game, it doesn't sound like I'm missing anything. It's a shame developers can't allow for detail changing in the setting like PC games do. You don't see PCs getting left out of playing newer games just because they are a year or two old.
