Jurassic Park II: The Chaos Continues, is the sequel to the Jurassic Park, created by Ocean in 1995 for the Nintendo SNES and Game Boy.
STORY / GAMEPLAY Dr. Alan Grant sets off to help a military team inside the Park, lead by John Hammond. At the same time, another team from the Biosyn Corp Company is sent there to take control of the Park in order to use it for themselves. You control Alan Grant a soldier are armed with six different weapons (machine gun, cattle prod, shotgun etc). There are 6 different missions for you to choose and accomplish. On the way you encounter many roaming dinosaurs and sometimes Biosyn armed soldiers, all wanting to kill you. Your main aim is to check and find out what happened to the Park, after the events of the first Jurassic Park. This is one of the best SNES games I ever played. Though its high difficulty level the game is quite intense and particularly beautiful.
GRAPHICS / SOUND The game's graphics are impressive, designed with multiple colors on screen and offer great backgrounds that depict well the Jurassic Park atmosphere. The game offers a variety of sprites, from soldiers to huge and detailed dinosaurs. (especially the T-Rex is brilliantly animated). The different environments have their own unique style and visuals! Sonically, Jurassic Park II is awesome. The music binds well and adds a lot to the creepy atmosphere and action; the same happens with the digitized sound effects that vary from realistic dinos' screeches and growls to weapons gunfire and explosions.
