Reviewer's comments

"It was a sheer delight to replay this old classic. The NG version has lighting that is completely player-friendly, and the colorful authenticity of the environs make this one of the best levels GMac has ever released, both in terms of gameplay and ambiance. I spent just over two hours here, and but for what I thought was a bit too much required backtracking, everything is near perfect. I especially appreciated that purple haze surrounding many of the pickups, several of which would otherwise have been too small and indistinct to locate easily. Dutchy has provided a walkthrough that documents all aspects of this two-part adventure, one that merits a fresh look even if you've played it two or three times already as a Lara at the Movies feature. High recommendations." - Phil (18-Aug-2017)

"Still a very good game this NG version of the one in Lara at the Movies level. This is a tad easier to play, as the timed runs are much easier to do than in the original one. You have to give credit where credit is due; I always like what I see in George’s levels. Funny enough I replayed the original not so long ago, so I knew my way around a bit better. I still jumped when the T-Rex appeared, always a good sign although the raptors also did a good job of scaring me. There is the longest monkey swing I have ever encountered and luckily in this level it wasn’t so dark." - Gerty (29-Jun-2017)

"I remember playing this level a couple months back, and it was seriously impressive. Not only did it feature a good few hours worth of gameplay, it had its own cutscenes, music, and unique scenery. It captured the feel of Jurassic Park very well but still maintained that awesome Tomb Raider atmosphere. Lighting, level design, and textures were very impressive. I had some issues with the level traversal at times and found myself getting lost and not knowing what to do many times, and the ending was rather anticlimactic, but I still had quite a good time with this level." - BHM Productions (14-Apr-2016)

"I really enjoyed this beautiful level. The gameplay is my favorite type - mainly platforming and shooting without being too hard and some pushblocks thrown somewhere, but I didn't like that sometimes you have to go somewhere just to get a key and backtrack to the same place to put it and to get another key. That's the only flaw, some keys could've been removed in my opinion. Anyway everything else is great, textures are okay, lighting too, enough camera hints are shown but I think some flybys were too long and slow. I think I kinda prefer the second level, mainly because of the T-Rex and the beautiful lake. It's a great game, took me 90 minutes to complete it, recommended!" - misho98 (29-Dec-2014)

"I have some distant memories from playing the original level nearly four years ago, and actually this was a rather good experience even the second time around. The looks have received a complete change, and unlike many other levels from GMac I think the new textures actually work nicely here, there is not an overuse of greyish looks and the lighting also feels quite solid. Maybe they are still a bit repetitive, and there are too many squaric maze-like passages that share the same look so they're not impressive at all. The outside areas are well done though. I also liked the use of sounds and cameras, there's a constant feeling that a bunch of T-Rexes is hiding behind every corner while you have to shoot only one actually. There's a good dose of other enemies, though, so the action moment is still quite high, even if most of them are pretty easy to fight (the raptors fall after few shots). The gameplay feels rather basic at times with many buttons to push and items to find, but is nicely spiced up with some more challenging runs, a few tricky jumps and some actual puzzles to solve, and even if the areas are complex they never seem uttermost confusing, I enjoyed my time here. The jungle area in the second level felt smaller than in the original, maybe I'm mistaken though. Finished this good adventure after 65 minutes with three excellently hidden secrets." - manarch2 (26-Oct-2014)

"What a wonderful adventure indeed. I really liked the textures used here with the blinking colored lights on it. Right after the spectacular intro you are thrown right into the action. I'm very easily scared so i was on edge most of the time which really made it an enjoyable raid. Atmosphere is very spooky and thus impressive so the creator has done a good job on that aspect. Gameplay is perhaps not on the most creative side but it is still very good and enjoyable. This adventure can be played by all as it's not so hard. I do recommend it so be sure to not miss this game." - totizedger (24-Oct-2014)

"To simply put it : this level is amazing. It had atmosphere, and was so much fun to play the whole way through. Granted it was a remaster of the Lara at the movies Jurassic Park but the changes only made the adventure all the better. Maybe a few dated objects that don't mix well with HD ones but it is still an excellent adventure recommended for all!" - Bradley (22-Oct-2014)

"90 minutes of pure nostalgia for me - playing the NG version of the original Lara at the Movies level that was created more than 10 years ago. And it has aged well in terms of the overall concept and does clearly benefit from the NG revisions. A good sense of direction is still required here, as you go back and forth a lot around the maps, but some of the more tricky parts seemed easier now - to the extent that some of the timed runs did not even register for me as being a timed run. The Long monkey swing in part 2 is still a bit too long though. Great fun to revisit this after such a long time." - MichaelP (22-Oct-2014)

"It's curious to see this wonderful adventure wasn't yet reviewed. Personnaly I have most enjoying this version than the previous version of trle gold - lara at the movie. The gameplay is easy but maybe a more bit difficult in the second level ... but was it a bad thing? I think not. It's well sometimes to play an easy adventure. The secrets were also not difficult to found and add a more small gameplay to trying to found them. The game is also very well textured, I have really enjoying the TRLegend textures for the temple in the caves. Not very dark too but WARNING, maybe some terror moment when enemies attacks ;) . The small cutscene whis lara and the soldier is also very good. So to conclude and nice stroll through this dinosaurs island to discovered secrets of this Jurassic world. Great game recommended for everyone even for the begginner who want discovered trle world easily." - Bigfoot (18-Aug-2014)
