Let's Play - "Jurassic Park: Trespasser" (ep10)

Let's Play is a collection of video game playthroughs with commentary.
Let's Play videos show the video game being played while the player talks about what he is doing in real time commentary (sometimes just with text). Generally the playthroughs are spread over several segments of play (varying in time). Rarely some action is done "off screen" or speedup to not get too repetitive, but in most cases the playthrough is a complete run of the game including all "Game Overs" and deaths. The videos are usually a humorous way to learn about a video game without having to play it.

What the heck are we doing? In this LP we will be examining each of the 8 levels of Trespasser and discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the game as we go on. The game is infamous for its bugs, both regular and physics-based so expect to see some glitching. I will be playing each level start to finish and providing relevant commentary in a video to be posted in each update. In addition, there will be a 60 second recap video for the ADD kids out there who don't have time for the regular vid.
We are going to travel back in time to late 1998 when the most anticipated game of the year, Trespasser was released. It crashed like a lead balloon and left a legacy of how not to make an FPS. Trespasser reached for the moon and fell short, but deserves to be remembered for the attempt.
