Warpath: Jurassic Park- PlayStation

Another day, another JP game. This one is "based" on Jurassic Park: The Lost World movie. You know, the worst one.

In this game you get to fight against other dinosaurs in arenas taken from the movie. That is pretty much it folks. One of the great things about this game is that you can eat passing goats/humans to replenish health. For the carnivores fine but for the ceratopsian dinosaurs it doesn't make much sense. Also, the game comes complete with a museum where you can check out all the battling beasties and learn all kinds of factoids about them. WARNING! Do not play this on a PS2 with the fast disc speed setting. It condenses all the narration in the museum mode. Well you could I guess.

This could happen
Dinosauriness: Acrocanthosaurus, Albertosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus, Cryolophosaurus, Giganotosaurus, Megaraptor, Pachycephalosaurus, Spinosaurus, Stygimoloch, Styracosaurus, Suchomimus, Triceratops and inevitably Tyrannosaurus rex.

Scientific Accuracy: The dinosaurs have all kinds of anatomy defying moves that they probably couldn't have used in real life. However, I have never extracted dino DNA from mosquitos in amber and mixed it with amphibian DNA to make dinosaurs so what the hell do I know about it? 6/10.

Buzz Bonus: Fighting through the levels and different opponents unlocks a host of extra characters and features. One such feature is exhibition match. We regularly set up exhibition matches, betting on which dinosaur is going to win. HOT TIP: Always bet on the Ankylosaurus FTW!
