Has been confirmed as being (apparently) canon, although the events of the game [[ContinuitySnarl do not fit well]] into the established canon of later sequels in the franchise.


Added DiffLines:

* ContinuitySnarl: Despite the game apparently being canon, the revelations in the story haven't aged well after ''Film/JurassicWorld''. Most notably, the game confirms that the [[spoiler: napalm bombing]] of the island from the novel does happen, yet in ''World'' the island is in decent shape and at least one of the park's original dinosaurs is still alive. The existence of the [[spoiler: Troodon]] also compounds matters; either they died off on their own, were captured and/or exterminated during the construction of Jurassic World, or [[FridgeHorror were never discovered]].
** Due to the game's middling reception and mostly-forgotten status even among ''Jurassic Park'' fans, it's difficult to consider it relevant among the broader canon of the films. It doesn't help that this game was mostly created to be nostalgic comfort food for fans yearning for "Jurassic Park 4", which at the time was deep in DevelopmentHell and considered unlikely to ever get made. Fast forward to 2013...and the film suddenly gets a title, a director, and a release date. Oops.

* DanBrowned: Zigzagged. While the dev team do include a few signs that they did their homework, at other times they simply made stuff up or went for RuleOfCool. Case in point is the mystery theropod; the real ones were nocturnal and had large eyes that may have been reflective like a wolf's, but there's no evidence they had poisonous bites or bred in such a bizarre manner.

* StockDinosaurs: Averted and played straight. ''T. rex'' and ''Triceratops'' appear, and even get a classic dinosaur fight. ''Parasaurolophus'' and ''Pteranodon'' also make appearances. Averted with the ''Herrerasaurus'', and, debatably, [[spoiler: the ''Troodon'']] and the ''Tylosaurus''. ''Velociraptor'' and ''Dilophosaurus'' are a special case, as they're only StockDinosaurs ''because'' of the movie this is based on.

** Although their normal clothes were worn underneath -- thereby justifying this trope to a degree -- the survivors who swim through the ''Mosasaurus'' lagoon still look dry even when they've just emerged while wearing their diving gear. Not that the water effects were exactly stellar to begin with.
