EGM's Jurassic Park Previews & Reviews

With the release of the second Jurassic World movie this week, I flipped through some issues of Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) to find coverage of the first Jurassic Park video game that released on a variety of platforms. I've got previews of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Sega Genesis versions, and reviews for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), Sega Genesis, Sega CD, and Sega Game Gear releases. The logo on the NES preview is tough to see since it's the bone outline that didn't scan well and my adjustments of the brightness/contrast caused it to almost completely disappear.

As always, for EGM reviews I piece together multiple scans to have the review paired up with the review crew. For issues with Mike Weigand, he's not part of the four scores as he did separate, smaller reviews of other games in the sidebars of the review pages. While most people view licensed games as bad, and many from the '90s are, these Jurassic Park games all scored rather well. The games are all from different developers as well; Ocean Software handled the SNES game, different Sega studios were on the Game Gear and Sega CD versions, and BlueSky Software developed the Genesis one.

For a bonus, here are the three ads I've got that haven't been posted to the Vault 1541 Flickr albums yet:
