The game tasks the user playing as pilot Lori Torres or photographer Mark Hanson, to find 12 DNA canisters and their associated DNA and avoiding dinosaurs.

At the end of each level, the player will use the DNA that is collected in a short puzzle game, in order to create more dinosaurs. Completing this minigame will unlock more areas for the player to explore.

At the end of the game, the military bombs the island, and the player escapes on a small plane, wondering if dinosaurs should really have a place in their world.

ReceptionEdit

Jurassic Park III: The DNA Factor recieved generally unfavorable reviews. Metacritic gives it a 44/100 based on 10 reviews.[1] IGN said "it's definitely a challenge to get through, but the clumsy controls, the off-and-on collision detection, and the poorly-drawn game perspective is enough to make the game more frustrating than fun."[1] Total Video Games wrote that "the moan continues with uninspired and bland graphics, awful sound effects and ear-wrenching music."[1] Cinescape concluded, "If you really are in to JURASSIC PARK, then it might be worth renting. Otherwise, avoid it like a pack of starving raptors."[2]
