** And especially the dialogue between Gerry and Nima in which she reveals her backstory by the lookout point in episode four, right before the events in the Marine Facility. This is both the longest and the last real "quiet drama scene" in the game, being very tranquil.

* AfterActionPatchup: Played with: Initially, Nima only gets first aid treatment after escaping from the ''Dilophosaurus'' and the mysterious creatures. During the climax of episode one, however, Nima has to get treatment ''during'' an action segment.

* AnimalWrongsGroup: Dr. Sorkin. She frees the dinosaurs of their lysine dependency, allowing them to survive off the island without help (though at the time she had no idea they could breed). When she finds out the island is going to be bombed, [[spoiler: she first tries to use the other characters as hostages to stop it, then tries to release the park's Mosasaur into the ocean to save it. She's also responsible for many of the deaths in the game, having kept the lethally venomous ''Troodon'' a secret after Hammond ordered her to kill them.]]

* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler: Yoder snaps after witnessing the brutal death of Oscar and the horrific FateWorseThanDeath of D-Caf, his two comrades and best friends. This--combined with greed, a desire for vengeance on Dr. Sorkin, and a large amount of stress--is likely what caused him to [[FaceHeelTurn betray the other survivors]].]]

* DramaticIrony: Thanks to the occasional CallBack or ContinuityNod, the player can know what's going on even before the characters do. This is most evident in Episode One, in which actual scenes from the film are included and Nima has to walk through Nedry's last few moments in order to find the can, but anyone who's read the books could suspect the [[spoiler:bombing run]] long before Yoder confirms it.
* TheDreaded: The mysterious predators that harass Nima at the beginning, later revealed to be [[spoiler:''Troodon'']], are feared by most other carnivores, even the raptors. During Episode One, ''Dilophosaurus'' run away when they hear its cries, and during Episode Two, flocks of ''Compsognathus'' flee from them in the Visitor Centre.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Dr. Sorkin's assistant, David Banks. We hear his voice in episode one, but in episode two he's died offscreen with little explanation.
** A Creator/TelltaleGames employee said he was originally going to appear in episode two, but what they had planned for him would have upped the game's rating to M. Makes you wonder what they had planned, given what else is in this game.

** Whenever you hear the sinister music playing and start seeing bits of clues that add up to danger, this is usually the case. For instance, characters notice the inactive lights and strange animal noises around the park during episode one, and in episode two the Alpha rescue team stumble upon the remains of the Bravo team.
** Despite Gerry's insistence that they haven't cloned a Mosasaur -- and indeed couldn't -- iconography of it is prominent around the marine exhibit. Sorkin, Yoder, and Jess walk through a hatchery containing large numbers of fish being bred as food. While visiting the Rotunda, Jess notices a large cage in the water to the right of their location.

** The mysterious predators aren't shown fully until episode four. They're not even given an explanation until the very climax of episode three, and by then they've already wiped out most of the rescue team, tried to kill Nima, and terrorized the raptors just by being around.
** Despite the clues, nobody suspects a Mosasaur exists beneath the marine exhibit until Sorkin explicitly confirms it, and it isn't shown properly until it rams the glass.

'''''Jurassic Park: The Game''''' is a 2011 video game from Creator/TelltaleGames in the style of games like ''VideoGame/HeavyRain'' taking place in the ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' universe. It plays like an InteractiveMovie, as you don't actually control your character - rather, you guide them through [[QuickTimeEvent quick-time events]] during the action scenes. During the puzzle/exploration scenes, you can look around for points of interest, switch between characters/locations, and talk through dialogue trees.

* ImminentDangerClue: Whenever you hear the sinister music playing and start seeing bits of clues that add up to danger, this is usually the case. For instance, characters notice the inactive lights and strange animal noises around the park during episode one, and in episode two the Alpha rescue team stumble upon the remains of the Bravo team.

* MadeOfIron: Nima takes a fall during the prologue that would probably cripple her in real life, at the very least.

* TheManyDeathsOfYou: Unless you want to become dino chow, you'd better be quick on those buttons, as there are many ways to die horrible (and in some cases, darkly amusing) deaths. The developers even stated that dying and watching the numerous death scenes would be half the fun.

* MonsterDelay: Though there is a brief glimpse of one when Nima checks Nedry's car, nobody gets to see a ''Dilophosaurus'' until Nima finds the can and is told by Miles what's so special about it.

* MoralityChain: Oscar to Yoder, and vice versa. For instance, when D-Caf disappears, Yoder begins to freak out and talk way too fast, insisting that they should stay and look for their fellow soldier instead of leaving. He even becomes threatening towards Oscar. Oscar brings him to his senses by reminding him of his job.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Sorkin's delay results in Nima getting a chance to escape and raptors getting a chance to show up. It also comes back to haunt her when [[spoiler:her ''Troodon'' pack escape from quarantine, effectively resulting in many needless deaths]]. This is basically her schtick.

* SuperPersistentPredator: The ''T. rex'' brings down several large herbivores and keeps right on chasing those pesky humans, often seconds after having swallowed one. The ''Herrerasaurus'' put their own lives in danger just to nab a few humans on a coaster ride, and all of them meet the bottom of the cliff for their trouble. Even the otherwise intelligent raptors fall under this trope, bringing down a ''Parasaurolophus'' that should have fed the whole pack, then still chasing the humans into the tunnel system.

* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: In the prologue, the player briefly gets to see things through the eyes of Nima while the poison effects her. Bright lights flash and things start to slide out of focus. Later on in episode one, she begins hallucinating and mistakes Jess for [[spoiler:her own daughter]].

* VillainDecay: In the films, the ''Tyrannosaurus'' runs fast enough to keep pace with a jeep, and Muldoon explicitly claims that the raptors can achieve "cheetah speed". In the game, though, characters frequently outrun both species (which is closer to in RealLife. A ''T. rex'' couldn't run nearly that fast - and even if it could, one stumble would be ''fatal''. As for the raptors, their leg proportions suggest they were poor runners even by theropod standards.)

* MamaBear: Lady Margaret, the alpha ''Triceratops''. She is said to be extremely protective of herd's younger members, and thus she attacks Gerry and Jess when she believes they are threatening one of her calves. Not to mention that she battles ''Rexy''!
