* ActionFilmQuietDramaScene: In between getting attacked and fighting for their lives, the heroes often get to enjoy more sedate moments. Good examples include the ''Triceratops'' scene in the first episode and the ''Parasaurolophus'' scene in the second.

* ShownTheirWork: [[spoiler: Troodons were selected as the apex dinosaur because they are thought to be the most intelligent dinosaur that ever existed (though that's relative, as they were not as smart as an average house cat). Troodons are also a favorite of cryptozoologists as the predecessors of "intelligent humanoid dinos".]]

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.)

'''''Jurassic Park: The Game''''' is a 2011 video game from TelltaleGames in the style of games like ''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.

** The ''Compsognathus'' were vicious pack hunters of the PiranhaProblematype in the films, but here they are simply fodder for the mysterious predators. Gerry Harding even says they're harmless when the survivors are walking through the jungle.
