Jurassic Time's "Definitive Edition" of the Hammond Memoir is the best the audio program has ever sounded with additional new sound effects and other surprises compared to the previous editions. An engaging video program has also been updated to reflect the enhancements.
Experience Richard Attenborough's masterful, nearly-lost performance of John Parker Hammond: the tragic man whose dream of bringing dinosaurs back to life came true; before being swiftly ended. Cobbled from the ill-fated Trespasser- The Lost World: Jurassic Park PC Game, and featuring amazing music by Bill Brown mixed with an array of sound effects; you'll feel like you're right beside Hammond as he makes his journey across Isla Sorna, playing "God" in the laboratory, and recounting how he felt after the fateful incident at Isla Nublar. It's a compelling and introspective tale you will never find in the novels or films.
Thanks to the discovery of a source that contained Attenborough's recordings, without its misty "echo/memory effects" that plagued the original and beta game files, we can now clearly hear the vocal performance. After most of the prior editions, and almost two decades hearing it this way straight from the game itself; this is an important milestone in preserving this experience. Those familiar will find the clarity of Attenborough's delivery startling. Additional sound effects have been included, with some still mixed in by the game designers, all in much better quality.
You'll also discover some updates on the additional tracks, which feature additional dialogue from the films themselves and even from another game that featured Attenborough as Hammond: Chaos Island.
The story continues even further with Anne, performed by Minnie Driver: a woman stranded on Isla Sorna after an unfortunate vacation accident. She comes across "Hammond's Lost Diary", which features a synthetic recreation of Richard Attenborough's voice using audio from Trespasser. For the first time, the rest of Hammond's intended story, as seen in the game's original script, can be heard.
I hope you enjoy this definitive edition.
