The fourth Jurassic Park film has just come out, a full 22 years after the original 1993 Steven Spielberg masterpiece. And why not? The original film was a classic with its awe-inspiring dinosaurs, all hungry toothy grins and almost comically arrogant eye movements; an incredible score by John Williams that's equal parts wondrous, exciting and sentimental; multi-faceted characters whose ecological concerns conflict with their own inner child that drove them to study dinosaurs in the first place; and its rich setting, Isla Nublar, a comic concoction of untamed jungle choked by corporate interests in a soulless bid to appeal to the masses.

Telltale Games' Jurassic Park tie-in has finally arrived on the European PlayStation Network, more than a month after it launched in the US.
Dungeon Defenders and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath head this week's EU PlayStation Store update.
Dungeon Defenders costs £7.99 / €9.99. PlayStation Plus subscribers get 20 per cent off. Stranger's Wrath, from Leeds-based developer Just Add Water, is £9.99 / €12.99.
HD remakes of PlayStation 2 classics Ico and Shadow of the Colossus also launch, alongside a demo of King of Fighters 13.
Telltale Games' Jurassic Park tie-in finally gets an Xbox 360 retail release in early 2012, via publisher Kalypso Media Group.
Sony has narrowed the European release window for Telltale's episodic Jurassic Park on PlayStation Network, after European console versions missed the game's US simultaneous release date promised across all platforms.
Sega's revival of Dreamcast racer Daytona USA heads up this week's list of downloadable launches on the EU PlayStation Store.
Daytona boasts smoother graphics, a sharper soundtrack and an unwavering 60 frames-per-second, all of which helped Martin wave a 9/10-bearing chequered flag in Eurogamer's Daytona USA review of last month's XBLA version.
PlayStation Plus subscribers are rewarded with a 30 per cent off the price of Daytona and 20 per cent discount off 2007's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which launches as a download this week for £19.99 for everyone else.
Remember that bit in Jurassic Park when the T-Rex attacks the cars, and the kids are inside, and Jeff Goldblum jumps out of the car with a flare and distracts the dinosaur by pressing up, down?
Or what about the part when Laura Dern is chased out of the electricity substation by raptors and has to dash across open ground to the safety of the visitor's centre by pressing left and right at just the right time?
Hmm. Maybe not.
European Xbox 360 owners will not get to play Jurassic Park: The Game this year, developer Telltale Games has announced.
The iOS version of Telltale's forthcoming Jurassic Park tie-in will be iPad 2 only, a spokesperson for the developer has confirmed to Eurogamer.
Telltale Games hopes to release Jurassic Park: The Game on 15th November.
This is the target, the developer told IGN.
The game launches simultaneously on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Given 15th November is a Tuesday, we hope it'll launch on the European PlayStation Store a day later, on Wednesday 16th November.
Telltale shows off forthcoming tie-in.
Jurassic Park: The Game is heading to Xbox 360 this Autumn as a full retail release, developer Telltale Games has confirmed.
Though the recently delayed game is still expected to follow Telltale's traditional episodic release structure on PC and Mac, the 360 retail version will gather together all the content on one disc.
A PlayStation 3 version will launch "simultaneously" with the Xbox 360 game, though Telltale is yet to confirm whether that too will be a single boxed release or staggered over PlayStation Network, as has been the case with its recent Back to the Future series.
Telltale Games' forthcoming Jurassic Park video game tie-in will now launch in the Autumn, rather than later this month as originally planned.
A number of publishers have recently proclaimed that the traditional movie tie-in's days are numbered. Not only do they routinely getting a critical shoeing but people just aren't buying them anymore.
Telltale's episodic adaptation of the famous Jurassic Park licence will begin in April on PC and Mac.
Telltale's episodic adaptation of Jurassic Park has been inspired by Quantic Dream's thriller, Heavy Rain, according to the latest magazine previews.
