5 Critically Reviled Games That Actually Deserve Remakes

Jurassic Park: Trespasser

what went wrong:

For the Internet, Jurassic Park: Trespasser is but a joke. A good one, otherwise we wouldn’t have written countless articles making fun of how it uses boobs to display the character’s help meter, but there’s a crazy good game hidden in this wilderness. Trespasser got a lot of crap because much like its source material, it was dealing with unknown technology. Instead of dinosaurs, however, the devs were working with physics-based mechanics.

Some might know it as the game that tried to revolutionize the industry by allowing players to shoot from the most impractical angles.

The mechanics were pretty revolutionary, actually, with the developers of Half Life 2 citing it as the main inspiration for its awesome puzzles, but it seems as if the makers of Trespasser spent too much time working on the physics because the rest of the game is pretty bland. HASside from a few dinosaurs that we have to try to shoot via an aiming system that consists of the main character’s arm just randomly flailing all over the screen, Trespass is a mostly lonely experience. The most fun time anyone can have here is actually flying over the entirety of the game (yes, bugs find a way).

how to fix it:

We probably should’ve said this when they had the time to make a tie in for Jurassic World: Dominionbut ditch all wonky shooting elements and focus on making it a very stressful survival horror game where players have to escape some sort of crisis caused by dinos solely by virtue of using their brains on all sorts of clever puzzles (it’s totally fair to go play Half-Life 2 for inspiration, they kind of owe it to pass away)
