''Jurassic Park: Rampage Edition'' was a licensed Franchise/JurassicPark action game with a platform setup for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, and a sequel to the first Jurassic Park game on that system. However, it basically throws all the rules of the first game out the window. The game allows the player to choose between Dr. Grant or the ''Velociraptor''. If you choose to play as Grant, by default you start out with a dart gun that has infinite ammo. But there is a wide selection of weapons available for the player to obtain throughout the game. The variety of weapons in the game include an assault rifle, shotgun, taser, flame-thrower, grenades, rocket launcher, and shock rifle. As Dr. Grant you travel through fighting military type men, possibly private [=InGen=] protection, and dinosaurs until you are able to escape the island by boat.

* AWinnerIsYou: After beating the game all you get is a shot of Dr. Grant escaping to a cargo ship offshore in his raft, with a volcano in the background for RuleOfCool and an EpicRiff. You get almost the same screen when playing as the Velociraptor.

Added DiffLines:

* GuideDangIt: No, you're not supposed to kill the T-Rex final boss. You can shoot at it until the cows come home but nothing will happen. You're supposed to outrun it while shooting whenever it gets close so it doesn't eat you.


* MythologyGag: The scattered lysine boxes, which can only be eaten by the Raptor to go into [[SuperMode Rampage Mode]], are a throwback to the original novel and by extension, the first film, specifically Wu's (or Arnold's, in the film) claims about the cloned dinosaurs having been created to be unable to produce lysine by themselves.

* EverythingIsTryingToKillYou: Yes, everything, even other humans in Grant's mode for some reason. A popular fan theory is that they're guards trying to keep the whole incident under wraps. Another one is that they're Biosyn agents, similar to ''VideoGameJurassicParkPart2TheChaosContinues'', ''Rampage's'' sister game for the SNES.

If the player decides to play as the Velociraptor you win battles with physical attacks such as biting and whipping your tail. An interesting bonus for the Velociraptor is if you collect enough Lysine Cases you are able to go into "Rampage Mode" where the screen turns red and you become invincible for a limited amount of time. As the Velociraptor you play all the same levels as Dr. Grant allowing you to escape the island by hiding on a cargo boat.

* HorseOfADifferentColor: In Grant's version of the savannah level, he must ride on horseback, or rather, on "Gallimimusback" to complete the stage faster.
* HyperactiveMetabolism: There are scattered chocolate bars in all the levels which both Grant and the Raptor can eat to regain some more health. They're particularly useful when your health bar is almost empty.



* LogoJoke: At the beginning the T-Rex's roar as it stands below the Sega logo sounds like it's saying "Sega!"

* MirrorMatch: The final boss for the Velociraptor is another Velociraptor, with all of the same moves.
* MonsterIsAMommy: The Velociraptor is actually searching for a place to nest; it just so happens to be on a cargo ship that will take it to the mainland.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Mayincatec}}: The subject of the Hidden Ruins level, which boasts huge Olmec-like heads and Inca-like stepped pyramids. How ruins as large, extensive, and well-preserved as these went undiscovered on Isla Nublar all this time is never explained.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalBadass: In the books and movies, Grant was just a paleontologist who was only ever able to scrape by on his wits. In this game, he's a OneManArmy who knows how to wield a plethora of weapons, and takes down legions of dinosaurs and armed mercenaries all by himself.
* AllThereInTheManual: There is some story about how Grant has postponed his escape from the island to put a stop to the [=InGen=] mercenaries looking to collect dinosaur eggs and DNA samples to build a new park, but it only exists in the game's instruction manual. Otherwise, there's no context given for why Grant is fighting both dinosaurs and military personnel alike.

* InferredHolocaust: The game's instruction manual involves Grant noticing that something fishy is happening on Isla Nublar and forcibly commandeers the chopper, crashing it and setting out to fight the dinosaurs and InGen mooks. [[FrideHorror Absolutely no mention is made of what happened to Sarah, Dr. Malcolm, Hammond, and Hammond's niece and nephew.]]
