JURASSIC PARK: OPERATION GENESIS (PC, PS2, Xbox; Universal; Teen) Breed dinos, build a theme park, manage the tourist hordes — and feed said hordes to the T. rex, photographing the mayhem from a hot-air balloon.

The lush tropical backdrop, 3-D visuals, and rousing John Williams score make this a worthwhile walk in the park..
